Congratulations on your engagement! Now it’s time to celebrate with friends and family. The engagement party can be used as the foundation for establishing your wedding style as a couple. And since you both gravitate toward a simple, minimalist aesthetic, why not use this shared sentiment in planning for your upcoming nuptials? There’s no better place to start than with the inaugural festivities. For those of you looking for stylish inspiration, here are Bride & Blossom’s favorite decor ideas for the modern engagement party.


Your engagement party invitations will be the first element that sets tone of what kind of wedding you will be having. A design featuring modern calligraphy and text on a white and grey marble background looks trés chic. Prefer more color? Look at designs with watercolor embellishment.

Bride & Blossom Featured Bride Marianna On Her Vera Wang Wedding Dress and Personal Touches

When it comes to weddings, what we really want to know about are the pretty details like the dress, shoes, and jewelry, and all those personal touches a bride adds to make her wedding day extra meaningful! This week we spoke to our featured bride Marianna about all the care that went into picking her gorgeous Vera Wang gown!

Part 2: Gown & Personals

When we asked Marianna about saying yes to the dress, she told us, “I knew I wanted a classic Vera Wang sweetheart ball gown. I only tried on four dresses, and the last dress was the one I went with. I immediately fell in love with the classic design and long bridal train. I knew it was the perfect dress because I felt like a princess.” Not many brides-to-be have it this easy in the hunt for a wedding dress. But take just one look at Marianna wearing her breathtaking Dagmar gown by Vera Wang and you can tell that it was meant to be. She completed her bridal attire with a sweeping cathedral veil, also from Vera Wang’s Iconic Wedding Collection.
