July, You’re Pretty Crafty

July, you’re pretty crafty…sneaking up on me like that.

I can’t believe July is here. Which means we have 3 months until the engagement party. 3 months?! I swear that it was just last week when I said we have 6 months. Well, no point in being difficult about it, it’s time to start planning!

Charlie and I knew we wanted a different celebration experience for our family and friends. We wanted something far from ordinary and traditional, something more edgy. We knew that we wanted to set the tone right from the get-go. In our eyes, the engagement party is the first of many events that will lead up to the big day. We want to make a good first impression and set the tone.

Because we’d rather spend more of our budget on the actual wedding we’ve decided to go with the budget-friendly approach. We’d have a nice semi-casual engagement party at my parents’ house and rent some tables and chairs. Yes, budget-friendly but tons of personality! Street food, cocktail style reception, lounge music, eclectic decor, and a good time.

Watch for the inspiration board coming this week! Any engagement party ideas out there?
