Planning the Big Day: Our Engagement Party

As much fun as planning a wedding can be, another fun event I was really looking forward to was our engagement party : ) We were sorta hoping someone would offer to throw one for us (I mean you can’t exactly plan your own!) and finally my delightful bridesmaid Tina decided to organize it for us-and I could not have been more excited!

The best thing about engagement parties is that you’re whole bridal party is there, which means your absolute closest friends, and it’s the perfect opportunity to thank everyone for agreeing to be part of the most special day of your life.

The dinner Miss Tina planned for us was so fabulous! Held at a popular Italian restaurant in Hoboken, the meal, served family style was delicious and all twenty of us had an amazing time. We had so much calamari  incredible wines, they practically had to roll me home and we were inundated with beautiful gifts and well wishes. I must also not forget the insane cupcakes specially ordered in my wedding colors of green and purple that were served for dessert, yay!

So, thank you to all of our incredible friends for coming out to celebrate with us and for making us feel so important : ) Of course a super-huge thank you to Tina for putting in all the work to ensure everything went off without a hitch…you rock girl xoxo!
