Party Hardy: Popping the Question


It’s been an eventful week. For starters, today marks 1 year since I started this blog. I’d call that an accomplishment (and a reason to celebrate/give myself a pat on the back). Next thing: I was offered a full time job as a Print Designer with Kellwood. This was pretty out of the blue for me (I was a temp for them until the end of 2014 and thought that door had closed but here we are now).

And having a steady paycheck came at a pretty ideal time for Zack and I because (drumroll please)….we have a wedding date! April 1, 2016. And, no, we aren’t fooling you with the date. More on the where and when later; today we’re focusing on the who.

I knew who I wanted to be in my bridal party for a while but I made no mention of it to anyone (although as some of my best friends, I’m sure they knew it was coming). I planned on popping the question when I visited NC, and I had found the perfect idea on Pinterest (side note: how did anyone plan a wedding before Pinterest?).

So today’s post (and one of the first DIY/wedding posts for the blog) recounts how I popped the question. Let’s meet the maids:

Katie Allen Peters —the matron of honor. Friends since middle school, the good times go way back.
Brittany Hall — the maid of honor. Met the first day of high school and the rest is history.
Megan May — bridesmaid. We met in college but I feel like we’ve been friends forever.
Lizie Hardy — bridesmaid. Zack’s sister but we were friends before Zack & I started dating.

I had everyone meet for dinner under the pretense that I wanted a girls night the weekend I came back into town. Everyone got a box and inside was a balloon with the instructions to “pop” it. (Get it?) Scroll through the pictures below, and you’ll see how it went down.

And in case anyone is wondering, they said yes.

PS — for those of you following who don’t know me, my fiancé’s last name is Hardy . . . hence the “Party Hardy” & the wedding hashtag. Here’s the story of how he popped the most important question. Thanks for following!
