The Bradford NC styled engagement party. You’ve seen styled wedding shoots before to inspire your wedding dreams but this styled shoot focuses on another fun aspect of getting engaged: the engagement party! If it’s something you’re considering, this styled shoot shows how an evening spent outside, under the lights, surrounded by pretty things can be the perfect jumping off point for your soon-to-be-wedding.
To match the future bride-to-be’s attire, the florists incorporated bright flowers into the mix. The assortment is wide and varied with sunflowers, thistle, purple veronica, zinnias, and more.
The party table is all very eclectic. White tables with natural tops, mismatched wooden chairs, and an assortment of décor and mismatched china create a truly one-of-a-kind look.
Stylists used vintage books, stands, jars, and even small trinkets like a pair of quails to pull off the look for which they were aiming.
Small white frosted cupcakes with personalized banners served as the place cards for guests. Every party deserves a sweet treat and these darling cupcakes were multipurpose!
An engagement party doesn’t have to have the over-the-top factor of a wedding, but it can still be a beautiful and memorable affair to celebrate a wonderful time in a couple’s life. By keeping the décor simple, but unique, your engagement party can be a lovely precursor to the exciting event to come!
