While wedding planning is in full effect I promise to share as much of the planning details with you all along the way! Finding the perfect outfit for an engagement party is not an easy task. Since our event was catered with a more formal feel I decided to dress up a bit. I got this white jumpsuit from White House Black Market. I’ve linked this exact one here and it’s on sale for $120.
My amazing little sister (pictured above) is responsible for my awesome fishtail braid look. I usually wear my hair down with loose curls, but when it’s a long event and outside I usually try and tie it back to prevent frizz and looking a mess at 1 AM.
My future mother and father in law were responsible for throwing this shindig and we are so grateful for them providing us with this amazing party. We have family and friends there to celebrate Josh and I taking this next leap in our relationship.
The below picture is of Josh and I gave a thank you speech. Party manners 101… always remember to thank your guests and hosts!!
The rundown of the party… We had the event catered by the cook and the cork located in Coral Springs. They did a FANTASTIC job! They provided all the food, the staff, tables, chairs, and linens.
There are many ways you can do an engagement party from a families house, to a restaurant, to a clubhouse in a neighborhood. We decided to have ours at Josh’s parents’ backyard which works great for parties. We kept the decorations minimal with tasteful hydrangea arrangements that offered a bit of a Gatsby theme. Our colors were black and gold.
If I could do it all over again I would hire a photographer so we could have done a better job at capturing more of the details of the night. Fortunately, these are memories that last a lifetime.
Catching Josh and my dad at this moment above makes me so happy. I am your typical “daddy’s girl” and rely heavily on my father for guidance. Lucky for Josh he’s given him his full approval!
The love we received from our family and friends was unimaginable. I’m looking forward to the next journey of this wedding process!
Note to self… next time fewer tequila shots!
