Classic look for your engagement party + wedding update!

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

I am so excited to finally be sharing this look with you!  This was option B when the first BHLDN dress I ordered was a wee bit small and well, it worked out perfectly because it ended up being pretty cool the night of my engagement party.  I am so blessed to have amazing friends that showed up and threw the most magical winter wonderland party.  It is truly something I will never forget!

I love the beading on this dress and the simplicity of the skirt.  One of my biggest pet peeves is a seam on a dress not looking clean and unfortunately, this one did not have the nicest one so I added in a small beaded belt to cover it all up.  I never realized how much I would use this little belt, I have already paired it with 4 different dresses and it was only $40.00.

Now for wedding details.  We have officially decided on our venue.  If you want to check it out click here.  TX whiskey is something that ties into our love story when Ryan and I were first dating I took him for a whiskey tasting at their downtown Ft. Worth location for his birthday.  So when they opened their new venue a few weeks after we got engaged I knew it was meant to be.  We did look at a few other places but each one I walked into didn't take my breath away like Whiskey Ranch did.

We have booked our photographer and I am beyond excited about her and her husband doing or photography and video, and yes we did decide to go with video all thanks to Ryans Cousin, So Kelly I owe you a drink!  I am so excited to share with you some of our ideas for save the dates so stay tuned.

I have not officially asked any of my bridesmaids, but I did make them go buy their bridesmaid dresses.  Clearly, I need to work on my planning skills.  I decided to not go the route of using "official" bridesmaid dresses but rather a dress I found off ASOS!  Not only were they under $150.00 but everyone was IN LOVE with them and said they were ME to a T!

We have selected our DJ, and it is the funniest story.  Our favorite dive bar has the best Husband and wife DJ/Karaoke team and we have elected to hire them.  They are like our bar parents so we are so excited that they can be a part of our big day.

That is all for now, we are still looking for a florist, caterer, invitations, and a decore theme so if you know of anyone in the DFW area please let me know!
