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.

Invitations

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.

Florals

When it comes to choosing floral decor, use a less is more approach. The visual impact of just a single white flower in a square glass vase is fascinating. Large tropical leaves look stunning in elegant glass bottle vases.  Arrange your blooms in vessels that have a strong geometric form and clean lines such as terrariums with metal detailing. For a beautiful wall display, style greenery and florals on large iron hoops.
