the weekend of our engagement party was also the perfect weekend to ask my bridesmaids since both stephen's younger sister and my younger sister were in town for the party! I reserved the private, secluded table on the side patio of horseradish grill which is right near chastain park. it was a beautiful, hot day and we had full run of the patio to be as silly and outspoken as we wanted. we started the brunch with warm biscuits and jam and mimosas and then the ladies opened their bridesmaid boxes before we chowed down.
luckily they're all family and had to say yes :) in all seriousness, I'm so happy to be surrounded by such strong, smart, and fun women. the next year of wedding planning is definitely going to be an adventurous ride and I can't wait to experience all the exciting occasions to come with these ladies by my side.
the most perfect invitations for the occasion from swoozie's.
I gifted the ladies bridesmaids boxes and the moms a bottle of their favorite wine with custom labels. I told them to put it in the refrigerator and when things get stressful over the next year, drink it in case of emergency! I'll go more into detail on the bridesmaid boxes next week, but how beautiful are these wine bottle labels from joie labels!
