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.
