For our engagement party, we opted instead for a small get together in our backyard with our family, bridal party, their partners & several close friends. We wanted a small & intimate gathering to reflect the overall theme of our upcoming wedding in December.
I didn’t want it to be the conventional type of ‘backyard BBQ’, instead I wanted to inject it with some elements of our wedding but without breaking the bank. Our backyard also looked very lacklustre (and jungle like before) so I really wanted to spice up the place a bit to make it look more elegant & aesthetically pleasing. I figured that even if it doesn’t turn out looking like something out of ‘Vogue Wedding’, at least something wedding-like rather than just a boring backyard.
