4 Creative Proposal Ideas for Summer
We’re just coming off of Memorial Day weekend, which kicks off the unofficial start of summer. Of course, the official start of summer isn’t until late June, but we’re already firing up those grills, lounging by the pool, and savoring the sensation of the warm sun on our skin. The summer months are made for making memories, which is why it’s a great time for wedding proposals. Don’t know how? Start looking at beautiful and affordable engagement rings, and check out this list of creative proposal ideas to use this summer.
Looking to propose in an adventurous way she'll never forget? Try parasailing! Rent a boat for two and enjoy a romantic excursion, both in the water and then in the air. As you’re both enjoying the view from hundreds of feet above, ask her to marry you. Can you think of anything more epic than a proposal in midair!? Before you board the boat, tell your captain your plan to propose. He might give you extra time. Also, there’s often someone on the boat that will take pictures of you while you’re parasailing. Make sure they capture the moment she says “yes!”
Planning a beach trip for the summer? Use that opportunity to your advantage! There are many different dreamy ways to propose on a beach, but here’s one of our favorites. Build a sandcastle and place one of our affordable engagement rings on the highest turret There are a few things you should keep in mind. For instance, you should make sure you start building your castle far away from the ocean so all your handiwork won’t be lost. You can either have your partner distracted and someplace else while you build the castle so it’s a complete surprise, or you can have her watch you or help you build it, then sneak the ring on top after it’s complete.
There’s something magical and exhilarating about fireworks. There are a number of ways you can incorporate one of summer’s prettiest spectacles into your wedding proposal. You could wait until July 4th and propose during a fireworks show. You can enlist your friends and family to set off fireworks after you pop the question and she says "yes." Or you could even contact a fireworks company and have them make a “will you marry me?” fireworks display just for your special occasion!
4. Airplane Message
This proposal tactic is a lot more public than the rest, so make sure your bride-to-be is okay with a public wedding proposal before arranging this. How many times do you see a plane with a message advertising a bar or restaurant when you’re at the beach? All the time, right? Use this approach to advertise your love and commitment to your partner by having your proposal spread across the sky with an airplane message. Just make sure that your love’s name is spelled right on the message and that the weather won’t cause any problems.
Are you gearing up to propose this summer? Do you have any creative proposal ideas to share? She’s sure to say "yes" with one of our affordable engagement rings.

“My Trio Rings is THE place to purchase wedding rings. On my 33rd anniversary, I replaced my stolen wedding band and the service I received was phenomenal! At first I was hesitant to make such a purchase on the internet; however, my overall experience was very gratifying. Vipul was unbelievably helpful, understanding, and "always there" to discuss any issue, even on the phone when he personally answered my call. He made me feel my satisfaction with this ring was almost more important to him than it was to me! My ring is beautiful, and exceeds my expectations in every way and at a very affordable price. This is truly an exceptional organization, one that I highly recommend to any skeptical internet shopper.” -- Greg

5 More Wedding Superstitions & Traditions
When I first started thinking about writing a post about wedding superstitions and wedding traditions, I had no idea how many I would find. So far, we’ve already had two posts on wedding superstitions and one on wedding traditions from around the world, but we’re not done yet! There are still more unique traditions and superstitions to share. How many of these have you heard of before?
1. Beware the wedding cake!
Things can get pretty dicey here. Cut your cake together -- a couple cutting the cake at the same time represents a shared future. If the bride cuts the cake first, however, legend says it foretells a childless marriage. It’s bad luck if anyone refuses some of the wedding cake, for both the couple and the guest who rejected the dessert. If the bride keeps a piece of the cake, the husband will be unfaithful.
2. Carry her over the threshold.
Tradition says that a bride who trips entering the house will have bad luck, and if she takes her first step into her new house with her left foot, she’ll also have bad luck. So, grooms, after you exchange those matching wedding bands, be sure to carry your bride the traditional way!
3. Walking down the aisle.
Here’s an interesting one: playing Wagner’s “Wedding March” is also considered bad luck as it’s from the opera “Lohengrin,” which is a tragedy in which the bride betrays her groom and when he leaves, she dies. Also, it’s bad luck for the bride to look at anyone to the right or the left while walking down the aisle as it represents looking elsewhere for love.
4. Don’t start on time.
Good news if you're never quite on time! Your guests might not like this one, but you might want to consider starting your wedding a little late since starting the wedding on time is considered bad luck. Just don’t start too late!
5. Take a last glance.
It’s good luck for a bride to look at herself in a mirror before she leaves for the ceremony, but bad luck to go back for a second glance. It’s also bad luck for the bride to see herself fully dressed for the wedding, and is advised to leave something minor off (like a pin, or even her shoes) when admiring herself in the mirror.

4 Tips for Planning a Pinterest Wedding
By now, you’ve probably heard of Pinterest (and you may have already spent countless hours there). If not, let me catch you up. Pinterest is essentially an online scrapbook. You can create virtual “boards” with different themes and “pin” anything you want to those boards.
These boards can be used for various purposes -- documenting new recipes you want to try, a dress you want to keep an eye on, and, yes, even planning your dream wedding. A lot of soon-to-be brides use Pinterest as a way to gather ideas for their big day. (And it’s not only brides-to-be that have a wedding board-- this writer has one and has no intention of getting married anytime soon.) Pinterest can be an extremely useful wedding planning tool, and we want to make sure you’re using it to its full potential. Here are 4 tips to help you plan your perfect Pinterest wedding:
1. Create Separate Boards
Instead of creating one huge board for your wedding, consider creating different boards for the various aspects of the planning process. For example, you can have separate boards for your dress, flowers, and invitations. This way, you’ll be able to keep everything organized and you won’t have to sift through hundreds of pins of wedding dresses trying to find that wedding invitation you liked. Here are some other board topics to consider: makeup, bridesmaids, photography ideas, cakes, groomsman, his and hers rings, and centerpieces.
2. Follow the Right Boards
To get the most out of Pinterest, make sure you’re following relevant people and brands. That means that you should be following wedding experts! You can also tailor the experts you follow to your particular style. Here’s an initial list of people to follow to get you started: Brides Magazine, The Knot, Bridal Musings, Disney Weddings, The Broke-Ass Bride, and, of course, My Trio Rings.
3. “Pin It” Bookmark
If you want to make pinning even easier, download the “Pin It” bookmark. This will generate a button on your bookmark bar that will allow you to pin anything from any page. This way, when you’re surfing the web for his and hers rings and you find sets you love, you can just click the “Pin It” button to have the link go straight to your Pinterest board designated for your wedding rings.
4. Pick Your Battles
Let’s just throw it out there -- Pinterest can be addictive. It has innumerable DIY ideas for weddings, and it’s easy to get caught up trying to make every aspect of your wedding a DIY project. Have an idea of things you can DIY and things you should leave to the professionals. Also, it’s important to remember that sometimes less is more. When you look back on your day, you’re going to remember the important things like seeing your partner’s face as you began to walk down the aisle. You won’t care that you didn’t have a replica of the candy buffet you saw on Pinterest. Don’t try to do it all, and focus the elements that are most importantn to you as a couple.
Are you getting ready to walk down the aisle soon? Make sure you have your matching his and hers rings ready!
