Our engagement party 🎉😍

Our engagement party 🎉😍

It’s been a busy few weeks at our house as Jonny started a new job and we had our engagement party!!
We decided on a low key affair with all our nearest and dearest and it really was lovely. One of my highlights was my Grandma meeting Jonny’s Nannan who then spent the afternoon nattering, unfortunately it’s not something that will happen too often as our families are a two hour drive from each other.
We had our party at my Mum’s house and handed over the organisation of the day to my Mum and Sister who did a fab job of decorations and food (check out their baking effort below). It was probably the best idea we’ve had as it meant we had all of the fun with none of the stress!
I love that engagement celebrations bring together all your favourite people before the wedding so you can get introductions out of the way and everyone is more familiar on the big day.
Jonny was pretty sceptical about a party at first but is really pleased we decided to do something. If a bigger party isn’t your thing then you could always opt for a quiet family dinner (this was our original plan). I’d just strongly recommend having some form of celebration, and if nothing else, it’s a great excuse to have a glass of bubbly or four…
I didn’t have too much time to take photos as I was too busy mingling but here’s a few of us, some of our guests  (I missed about 20 people) and more importantly, the cakes!
