our vintage engagement party.

hello there!
so when i posted our engagement pictures i was asked {through multiple outlets} if i was going to have or had already had an engagement party and was i going to blog about it?
well, i didn’t have this blog when our engagement party was thrown so i hadn’t planned on it but it’s a popular question so i decided ah what the hell! why not!
so here we are.

when we got engaged in may, we decided right away that we needed to go down to texas and meet with all the vendors we could and start booking away. i also needed to find a dress and i wanted to do that with all {or most} of my bridesmaids so i knew i had to find it in austin. and we thought, “hey! lets throw a little shindig!” and that’s just what we did!

one of my bridesmaids, misty, graciously hosted it at her house and was the one who took care of all of the decor! oh my goodness did she knock it out of the park! we loved it! even though we were fighting through some awful weather it cleared up {kinda} and let us par-tay! the weather did not do good things to my hair though, but we won’t touch on that.

i am so grateful that all of our closest family & friends came out and celebrated our engagement with us. it seriously was a magical night.
thank you again, to all of my bridesmaids and maid of honor for helping me keep my stress down and making us feel special!

oooooos & aaaaaaahhhsss will soon follow.
welcome to our engagement party!
all photos except one {you’ll know when you see it haha} were taken by the incredibly talented misty sims photography. and all of the adorable furniture pieces are from furbish vintage rentals & inspiration.

      1. Don’t worry! You definitely did NOT unfollow me! I switched my blog to self-hosting, and I lost ALL of my followers! (insert sobbing here). They “transfer” them all to the new blog, but it doesn’t really work, or show up in anyone’s readers. So I’m officially starting over. It’s so sad!!!!!!
