"We absolutely loved our engagement party !! Everywhere we looked was another cute decoration or game for our guests to play. It was very much personalized to the two of us, and it was clear that this was not just a generic template for a party. We were very happy with the party, and it could not have gone better. She was so enthusiastic with making sure the party went well that we knew everything would be a success."
