The day of the party was stressful though, and honestly, I don't think it would have been nearly as successful if my parents weren't there. My mom cooked pretty much all the food while my dad helped us hang decorations. I thought I'd been proactive by making some of the decorations ahead of time (like my bunting) but there were still SO many things to do that day! There were a lot of projects we could (and should!) have made in advance, and a few ideas we had to cut because of time. Overall, it went off without a hitch, but I learned some important lessons that I'll keep in mind for our wedding. You hear these again and again in the wedding world, but somehow you don't take them to heart until you experience them yourself. Things like "accept help and delegate!" and "don't procrastinate!" really do ring true.

I'm excited to share some of our last-minute projects and decorations with you guys, and share some ideas for those of you who might be planning your own engagement parties. Stay tuned!
