The rings looked fantastic! Thanks My Trio Rings!!!!”

Mesa, Arizona is not far from Phoenix, but it has a character all its own. Mesa is Arizona’s third largest city - after Phoenix and Tucson - and sits at an altitude more than 1,200 feet above sea level.

In downtown Mesa, you will see unique art at every turn. There are 38 different sculptures lining Main Street as part of the city’s public art collection. Take your sweetheart on a self-guided sunset art walk, and choose from any of the scenic places to propose - maybe in front of the Climb As High As Your Dreams sculpture or sitting in the Big Pink Chair. Once she’s said yes, walk over to Il Vinaio, a chic wine bar and restaurant on Main Street, and toast to your future together.
Queen Creek Olive Oil Mill
Take a foodie-inspired day trip to Queen Creek Olive Oil Mill, located about 30 minutes outside Mesa.

Valentine’s Day Proposal Do’s and Don’ts, Part II
Planning a Valentine’s Day proposal? You only have a couple more weeks to get ready for the big day, so we have a few more tips to make your proposal magical.
Your homework on which diamond engagement ring is right for her. Read up in advance on the 4's C's of diamond buying: cut, color, clarity and carat weight. Do a little detective work by asking her or her friends questions about the style she is drawn to. Does she like white gold or yellow gold? A classic princess-cut solitaire setting or a round-cut cluster setting with extra bling?
Feel pressured to spend two months’ salary on a diamond engagement ring. That idea is outdated and unnecessary, and you shouldn’t have to go into debt to buy a beautiful ring.
Look for affordable engagement rings that meet your standards, and you, your bride-to-be and your bank account will be happy.
Know the answer before you pop the question. You’re talking about spending a lifetime together, so this should not be the first time you’ve discussed marriage. Of course you want it to be special and surprise her with the way you ask, but the idea of growing old together should not be the surprise. Make sure you’ve both thought it through, talked about your future together and are on the same page. The good news is that this should take some of the stress out of your Valentine’s Day proposal!
Hide the ring somewhere strange. You may love the idea of tucking the diamond engagement ring in her molten chocolate cake so you can propose over dessert, but don’t do it. The idea may be sweet, but the reality is that the ring will get sticky and she could break a tooth or, worse, choke on it. You want your Valentine’s Day proposal to be memorable, but not quite in that way. Stick with a classic ring box.
Tell her exactly how you feel. This is a time when you can be as emotional and romantic as you want. Express how much you love her and all the reasons why you want to marry her. Don’t hold back, and don’t be afraid to get a little misty-eyed.

4 Tips for Planning a Small, Budget Wedding
Last week, we talked about how to plan a gorgeous budget wedding with a large guest list. Today, let’s focus on the opposite side of the spectrum: how can you plan the small, intimate wedding of your dreams?
Maybe you want to keep the guest list on the small side because you only want to celebrate with your nearest and dearest. Or maybe you’d rather have a more modest wedding day and save money for your honeymoon or future life together. Whatever your reasons, here are a few tips for making your day special from the moment you say “I do” over your trio rings till the last guest leaves after the reception.
You may want a very intimate wedding of just immediate family and a few close friends, but your spouse-to-be might think “small” is closer to 100 guests. Talk about it as a couple, and ask what type of atmosphere you want for your wedding day. Will you be overwhelmed by more than 50 guests? Will you be disappointed if you don’t have the lively celebration a bigger group would bring?
Be prepared for other people’s reactions.
You may disappoint or even anger some people in your life by keeping your wedding on the small side. Be ready to field questions from your parents about why you’re not inviting all of their second cousins or co-workers and deal with distant acquaintances dropping hints that they’d love an invitation. Have a polite but firm, “We wish we could invite everyone, but we decided to keep it very small” or similar response prepared.
Estimate a budget.
See what you can realistically spend on your budget wedding without putting stress on your future finances. The good news is that with a smaller guest list, it will be less challenging to stay within your means, and you may have room for a few splurges. Prioritize what is most important to you both in your wedding day and what is a “nice to have” but not essential. Celebrate the fact that your diamond trio rings will help you stay within your budget!
Hold the ceremony and reception in the same venue.
Simplify your rental and transportation costs by hosting your entire wedding in one location. With a smaller party, you may have access to unique venues that aren’t available to larger weddings. Keep an open mind, and research private homes, gardens, libraries, B&Bs, restaurants, galleries and event spaces that might fit your needs.
