The Pink Girls

Relax. Take a load off!

Weddings. Events. Parties. They can all be exhausting.
Remember to take time out for yourself and relax!
Kick up those feet and do something that makes you say....
ahhhhhh

They key to pulling off the perfect event is to have your SANITY.

A sane girl is a PINK girl.

Wouldn't it be nice if everyone was this lucky?? HAHA


Tonight's diamond posts were admittedly inspired by my spoiled mother...
After looking through her fun collection of sparklers, DAD allowed me to take a couple of pics ...
These are my 4 favorites.

What a lucky girl!
Growing up in a home with a father who knows a thing or two about diamonds... and what a woman actually wants, put a pretty giant load of pressure on my husband.
(hahahahaha THANKS DAD!)
I am pretty thrilled with what he came up with.
Then again... his father in law knew it all.

So like we said before... unless you are related to a diamond connoisseur (like myself) OR you are marrying a jeweler...
become a part of the process....

And that is all we are going to say about that!~

Enjoy looking ladies. I know I do.

A Pink Girl

Vintage inspired engagement rings... Just for fun! (Looking at diamonds NEVER gets old)

Super vintage... Edwardian style Rose cut diamond with Saphire Accents
A classic stone with a micro pave setting. To die for!

The classic Emerald cut diamond with baguettes. How can anyone not love this classic and timeless look?
For our fancy friends... Color stones, especially CANARY diamonds are rare...
Even more rare is a setting like the one above...
A radiant cut canary, with micro pave work (in canary)
Set in platinum with white diamonds
Beautiful.

Art deco inspired round cut diamond with emerald accents... search "vintage engagement rings" on google... and you will be amazed at what you find!

Your Pink Girls

Engaged? Want to get engaged? Want to propose? Scared??? HAHAHA! No worries... Some Diamond education on stones that don't suck!

Whether you like Pear shaped, Emerald cut, Asscher cut, Rounds, Cushion or the plethora of other shapes... We thought we would give some PINK girl pointers on some classic cuts, with both MODERN and VINTAGE inspired settings!

Girls... direct your men to this blog post and the one that will be posted right after...
Although a more mature cut, a pear shaped diamond can be really amazing if set properly... Think SKINNY micro -pave band both around the stone in addition to the band
Radiant cut diamonds have recently become pretty popular...
These stones look great when set as a classic white gold or platinum solitaire OR set with Trillions or baguettes on either side.
Classic. Elegant. The Emerald cut. OH how we love this stone! Amazing and beautiful just set alone in white gold or platinum... amazing with baguettes and amazing set in a micro pave setting.
Ahhhh ... the cushion!
Cushion cut diamonds are VERY sparkly people! Such a beautiful cut, and so fun!
This stone looks great when set as a solitaire.
The Asscher cut. A pink girl favorite. This stone looks amazing set by itself OR set in a micro pave setting. A classic look, vintage inspired. Love love love. These stones are very rare and difficult to find... but when you do... you swoon!

While the classic Tiffany & co. round stone with 8 prongs is what a lot of guys go for... let them know that you will be wearing this ring every day for the rest of your life... or at least until you upgrade. SO make sure to be a part of the process and let them know what you want... because it's A LOT easier to tell someone you hate the marquis cut stone set in yellow gold with half moon accents BEFORE ...

For the most part, guys are clueless and need a little help!

Halloween ... Pink Girls Style

Who says Halloween has to be CREEPY??
Here are some fun inspirations we found to get ready for the next
MONTH of tricks and treats!!
Carve your pumpkins and get those black permanent markers OR black paint ready ...
After you finish carving, paint or color in your design in BLACK
OR... reverse the idea... paint the PUMPKIN black and leave your design ORANGE
Instead of candles ... use carved pumpkins as your centerpieces, grab some moss from your local florist and place the pumpkin on a bed of moss OR it's fall people!!! Go outside and grab some leaves !
Okay... so I am loving this look... Take the Pumpkins and spray paint them WHITE! Leave your carving ORANGE... What a cool way to decorate. Very Chic!


This one might be THE MOST time consuming of them all... BUT... by far, my favorite! I think if you have the patience, and the time for this look, go for it! Spray paint your PUMPKINs a sage green color and pick lace patterns ... stencil them on your pumpkins and take your time... Make sure you have a very sharp knife ... and make sure NO CHILDREN are present.

Carving pumpkins with your kids is a time honored tradition. We all look forward to it. Make sure you never leave your children unattended with carving knives. (Even the child proof ones) So scary!

Be safe! Have fun! And stay tuned for more fun Halloween tips and tricks from your SOMETHING PINK GIRLS!

What's my name?!?!

Whether you're adopting his last name or hyphenating your own, there are several steps to take when changing your name. First and foremost, you must get married. After that, you'll need to register with the Social Security office. Everyone from your bank to your credit cards will ask for proof from the Social Security administration before changing your records.

Social Security Office
The good news is, getting a new Social Security card is both easy and free. All you need to do is file Form SS-5 with your official marriage certificate. You can do this in person, or via mail. To apply in person, simply show up at your local Social Security Administration office (you can find the address to your local office in the phone book or on the Internet), but be prepared to wait; you may have to. To apply via mail, you can stop by in person to pick up the appropriate form and then mail it in, call and have an application mailed to you, or download it from the SSA's Web site (www.ssa.gov).

In any case, you must be prepared to either hand over or mail your original marriage certificate. The SSA will only accept an official, original certificate. A keepsake certificate or declaration from your church will not work.

Requesting Your Marriage Certificate
Many brides don't realize that unless you specifically request it, you won't automatically receive a copy of your marriage certificate in the mail. Before the ceremony, you and your fiance obtain a marriage license, which is to say you have legal permission to marry. After the ceremony, your officiant will file the appropriate paperwork with the government. It is then up to you to formally request an official copy of the marriage certificate. One will not automatically arrive.

You should wait at least 2 weeks after the ceremony to ensure the paperwork was processed before you send in your request. (You can find contact information for where to write with your marriage license paperwork, or obtain it from your officiant.) Once you do, depending on the time of year (summer months are the busiest in the world of wedding documentation), you can expect to wait a few weeks for the certificate to arrive. Once you have it in hand, you can then proceed to the Social Security Office.

Receiving Your New Card
Again, be advised that whether you apply in person or via the mail, you will have to surrender your precious official copy of your certificate, but in either case, it will be returned to you by mail, along with your new card. Depending on the time of year, you can expect to wait anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks for your new Social Security card.

Your new Social Security card with your new name freshly printed on it is your key to all other name changes. Once you have it in hand, make several copies. Everyone will want one.

Name Change Checklist
Now that the government knows, don't forget to change your name with:

Your bank
Your work (you might want to order new business cards a fews weeks in advance)
The Post Office
The DMV (changing the name on your driver's license and your car's registration requires 2 separate transactions)
Your insurance (car, home, personal, life)
Your doctor's office
Your credit cards
Your school/alma mater
Frequent Flyer accounts (very important when you need to cash in a that free ticket!)
Your library/video rental cards

OUR newest contributor... ITS A BOY!!


Whomever said that you HAVE to be a chick to read our blog is totally mistaken.

Ahhhhheeeemmm!!! Read below... Can't wait to hear everyones thoughts!


xo The Pink Girls

PS.... We figured the pic of the BEER would grab the guys attention ;)

(good thinkin'... we know)

To:            The Engaged Males

From:            Thomas Crown (a husband and former engaged male)

First of all, if you are a guy who in between checking the scores on ESPN.COM and checking the availability on the website of your local golf course for weekend tee times and you just happen to decide to check in on the web destination SOMETHINGPINKGIRLS.COM you’ve got some serious issues!! 

On the other hand, if your potential wife has asked you to checkout the site to see a cake, flower arrangement, etc. and you have pretended to be happy to do so—so that later in the week when you do leave to go play golf you have the quote “I spent time on that wedding site, I deserve golf time” in your pocket and ready to go….all I can say is well done my friend, you are ahead of the curve.

Consider me your savior, in that you can get some fiancĂ© points for checking out a wedding site, while also being tutored by yours truly, to enhance your currently engaged IQ and hopefully allow you to make it through the chaos of your engagement and wedding planning—while hopefully still being on good terms with the lady that you gave that nice ring and asked to marry you.

My qualifications are nearly irrelevant, other than to say that I am happily married and meanwhile you are CLUELESS. For reference, when the movie HITCH was produced, I was consulted regularly to teach Will Smith how to operate….when George Clooney wakes up in the morning, he checks with me first…I gave Valentine his wings so he could fly with ease…and when the DOS EQUIS commercials are produced and they are describing the most interesting man in the world, that are talking about ME!

 

Today’s lesson will be VERY important….when selecting the color of the napkins for your rehearsal dinner always lean towards pastel’s….just kidding, not about the color but about this tip--needed to make sure that you are paying attention!! When asked about what color for napkins, your inside voice will say, WHO CARES, your outside voice will say “that’s nice” for the first option, “that’s OK” for the second choice, then the ever important third choice, “that’s the one” which will imply you are concentrating. Meanwhile, you will soon realize your opinion DOES NOT MATTER in this department. This is not to say that there is anything wrong with you being interested and/or wanting to contribute with some of these items, but just that you are powerless and should instead decide to focus your efforts on things wherein you are granted the right to have an opinion. Guy category number one, negotiating. Or as George Castanza would say, NEG-OOO-SHIAAT-ING. This is when he and Jerry were trying to get a pilot deal done with NBC and George actually some how got the offer to decrease in value.

One, if you are not familiar with this Seinfeld reference, you are lame. Two, if you are, DO NOT BE GEORGE. Have your fiancĂ© get the first offer on any service be that DJ, flowers, balloons, ANYTHING….then you follow-up and open with “we are sooooo excited to be working with you, but unfortunately you are a little out of our price range,” followed by, “if you could do it for [fill in the blank, no less than 30% less] we could get started today.” They will reduce their fee! If they don’t, move on! This one moron does not have the worldwide exclusive rights to chocolate melon balls, despite what they may imply.

 

Keep in mind this has nothing to do with being cheap, it has to do with getting a fair deal. One individual item of your wedding is not necessarily a huge purchase, but all together for the entire event it probably is one of the larger “purchases” that you or your family will make. And for an equivalent product of this type value, e.g. a compact or mid-size car, a time-share, or a new Gulfstream (if you are a Saudi Price), you would of course NEGOTIATE! Over the course of your nuptials $500 here and there can add up to a significant amount that you could otherwise spend on important things like a beer tap for your living room, a flat-screen TV for your bathroom, or couples therapy. A skilled wedding planner will also be able to take care of these vendor situations to get you a great deal….hmmmmm, who could plan your wedding?

This probably occurred to you about a paragraph ago, that I AM oddly knowledgeable and you are starting to like me…thinking of me as your buddy…well don’t….you are the definition of JV and I am WAY out of your league. With that said, if you are still reading, it means you are open to learn and you are ALRIGHT with me. So stay tuned and maybe we will meet again.

Pink on a whole NEW level!

Oh boy!
Get ready to pop the champagne and toast to the PINK girls!
Prepare yourselves for weekly webisodes featuring TONS of fun interviews, new products and services as well as a BOATLOAD of  PINK STUFF!!!

Cheers!

Cookie Buffet at your next event?

Some PINK GIRL inspiration for your next event! How about a cookie bar ?! We just recently did a baby shower where the Mommy to be loooooved cookies! So... Cookies it was! LOTS of them!!! :) Yum! This is making us hungry!!! xo The PINK Girls



30 wedding budget saving ideas from the reception to the DJ!

Reception

1. Cut the guest list. This will slash your catering costs and save on invitations and even the number of centerpieces.

2. Think off-peak season and save thousands!

3. Hold your ceremony and reception in one spot -- it will cut travel time for vendors you pay by the hour.

4. Skip the Saturday wedding.

5. Have bigger tables so you need fewer centerpieces and tablecloths.

6. Shop the off-season for extra decor -- get modern black vases on sale after Halloween and pretty pink ones after Valentine's Day.


Flowers

7. Use more greenery than flowers.

8. Swap out costly flowers -- did you know peonies can be five times more expensive than roses?

9. Stick to just one or two kinds of flowers.

10. Buy flowers that are in season.

11. Include non-florals, like lanterns.

Food & Drink

12. Serve entree duets.

13. Skip the main course -- apps and drinks are fine too.

14. Offer beer, wine, and a signature cocktail instead of a full bar.

15. Serve comfort foods like barbecue chicken, mac and cheese, and corn. It's fun and often cheaper.

16. Skip the champagne toast.

Cakes

17. Order a small one or two-tiered cake and then supplement cake with a larger sheet cake (hidden back in the kitchen).

18. Keep the add-ons simple.

19. Use fresh flowers, not sugar ones.

20. Reuse ceremony flowers for the cake table.

21. Skip exotic fillings like guava and mango.


Stationery & Favors

22. Get single-page invites to save on postage.

23. Give out one favor per couple.

24. Make your cake the favors.

25. Have favors double as escort cards.

26. Email your save-the-dates.

27. Make your own menu cards, escort cards and wedding favor packaging


Photo, Video & Music

28. Have a photographer you love but can't afford the prices? Ask them if they have an associate shooter who will do your wedding for less.

29. Opt for a smaller band.

30. Hire a band or DJ who can do both the ceremony and the reception.

XOXO
