My Engagement Party Outfit


At our engagement party, unlike our wedding day, I didn’t want to obviously stand out because of what I wore. Being the one all in white kind of gives you away at the wedding!

Somehow I didn’t want to it to be ‘all about me’ at the engagement party but I still wanted to wear something special. As ever Razan and her wonderful team came to my aid. They made me this beautiful dress just for the evening. Inspired by the time of year and the event, the dress is embroidered with mistletoe. I love this nod to Christmas and kisses. We chose the fabric and cut together, and then Razan worked on the embroidery for a couple of weeks. Finally we came to this beautiful conclusion. I just loved wearing it and now I have this beautiful dress as a memento to the evening. I wanted to share this beautiful and very special outfit with you, and thank Razan for making it possible.

    You look stunning Peony. The dress is perfect & the detail on the embroidery is gorgeous. This is definitely a piece you can wear again for special occasions. You were right to go a little more understated, the engagement party (imo) is more about you as a couple – of course a wedding is celebrating that too, but all the focus is on the bride on your wedding day.
    I really enjoyed reading about your engagement party too & hope you both had a wonderful evening celebrating with your nearest & dearest.
    Hugs Adele xoxo
