quite 'ze engagement soiree

As most of you know by now, I am an engaged woman. It has been one grand adventure, these past six years and it seems to only be getting better. Two months ago we finally had our big engagement soiree and we couldn't of been more pleased.  Since, we plan on waiting a while to officially tie the knot -we threw one big, ridiculously awesome party to celebrate our love instead. We had to do something full of love and extravagance, just as we are together, in order to properly commemorate something as pure as real love. To do this, we decided to throw one hell of a party -and that we did. Follow our story here.

Before the bubbly, the laughs, the sparkles, and the celebration -comes the planning. Invitations can be so overwhelming, but Wedding Paper Divas really helps simplify one aspect of your planning. WPD offers vast selection of fresh designs at a super affordable price-point while upholding to standards of style.  On their website you can customize every facet from the array of luxe paper textures, formats, trim options, and even add your own photo or design.  I chose the traditional style matte card-stock with rounded trim and I opted to upload my own photo to one of their great premade designs. You are able to order sample designs for FREE hereby using the code 'FREETRY'.  I also loved that besides everything being customizable you can even consult with a designer before your invites go to print.  I would definitely consider using their invitations for my bridal shower and other festivities when I am ready!

A touch of Old Hollywood Flair -
with the Invitations to match.

I was searching for a clean and chic look to complement the modernized, classy, old-hollywood touch I had intended on -I felt everything fell together perfectly.  The Southampton Social Club offered a chic, intimate venue with it's chandelier-lit playground, the fantastic people, and the best of the best, it was the quintessential setting for a party to be remembered. We had fantastic photographer; Juliet Rose, her and her assistant were great.  She is fresh faced and fully loaded with a fresh eye and the vigor to get the shot.

It really was a perfect night, the party to be remembered  ended up being so good,
no one remembered it ending.    

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Wedding Paper Divas. 
I received a product and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
