Cory and I celebrated our engagement with family and friends with an engagement party in Florida (where we're both originally from) a month after getting engaged. I had so much fun planning the first of the wedding festivities with both our moms and one of our close family friends who was gracious enough to host for us. We had so much fun soaking up every moment that night that we have VERY few photos. Note to future brides: get a photographer for everything. You think you'll take photos but you'll be too caught up in the moment to remember to document it. And I can't believe how quickly the night flew by! Now, how cute is our dessert table with the ENGAGED AF sign? It was my favorite thing of the whole night and my florist KILLED it with those balloons. #obsessed
I wanted the perfect dress that had an air of bridal but was still comfy and casual for our Florida evening. This was the perfect dress of the outside poolside affair. Above I've linked the exact match - run it's on sale! - and below I've provided some similar favorites.
