The Engagement Frock Grosgrain Giveaway

March 1, 2011

Do you remember what you wore when you got engaged? If you could have chosen the dress what would it be?
Mine would have been this. It has a romantic feel to it. Green viney flowers creep along the side front and along the back to end around the waist on the other side. Tiny pink flowers scatter throughout the green vines and pops of white fabric flowers adorn the neckline and hip.
And what a more appropriate setting than Longwood Gardens? As we walked through the conservatory Brian and I lamented our lack of million dollar greenhouse. "What if this were our home?" we said. What if indeed!
Longwood Gardens seems like one of those places that a family of billionaires once owned and eventually endowed. Someone like the Du Ponts or Rockefellers.
I wanted to go for a romantic hairstyle to go with this frock. It took forever to master the braid in my hair that begins in the back and entwines into my bangs in the front. But I think it looked awesome in the end.
 Wow. I have a lot of white hair! Must be getting up there;)
 One last note. This is in fact what I wore when I finally became engaged. Moments after these shots were taken Brian proposed. (In a very sweet way) I really debated keeping this to myself as many of you probably assumed we were already married. We have been together for many, many years (12 total) but for one reason or another, never officially wed. Not much is going to change, obviously:), but ultimately I felt I wanted my readers be a part of what is to come even if that meant surprising a few of you. Please wish us the best. This has been a very happy event for our family.
And no, the bunny ring wasn't my engagement band:) Although that might have been fitting since it's his nickname for me.

Congrats! I adore Longwood Gardens. You couldn't have picked a better engagement spot. Also, you are totally right about it's origins. It started out belonging to the DuPont family. :)

Gaidig said... Best Blogger Tips

Longwood Gardens does exist thanks to the DuPonts.

Congratulations on your engagement!

Jenny said... Best Blogger Tips

Congratulations!!! That ring is precious. And the dress is beautiful. If I were you I would keep it!

HipDroppedStitches said... Best Blogger Tips

Congratulations! You, the dress, and the photos are so beautiful... and to think of the special moment you and Brian shared so shortly after they were taken makes the photos even more beautiful, romantic, and precious. Wishing you both and your family all the best!

Beth said... Best Blogger Tips

Wow! Congrats! I did, indeed, think you were already married. :)

Best wishes to you and your family!

Bren said... Best Blogger Tips

Congratulations on your engagement. You two were obviously meant to be together!

Kathleen Frances said... Best Blogger Tips

Hah! I knew it. Maybe I did hear that somewhere and subconsciously remembered.

What would it be like to have a place like that for just yourself? It would be surreal. Unless I guess you're Du Pont.

Elizabeth said... Best Blogger Tips

Oh, congratulations! I love the dress and setting, almost woodland sprite like (and the bunny ring, adorable!)

Bren said... Best Blogger Tips

Congratulations on your engagement. You two were obviously meant to be together!

AmyJo said... Best Blogger Tips

Gorgeous and amazing. Congratulations.

Kathleen Frances said... Best Blogger Tips

Jenny,
Thanks! I don't know if it wasn't obvious but the bunny ring wasn't my engagement ring:) LOL. But that would be funny. We did take a photo of the actual engagement ring after he put it on my finger but unfortunately we were kind of distracted and it came out blurry. The conservatory was closing and it was distracting. We were kind of in a hurry and I was thinking of other things.

I love the hint of grey hair you have in your braid. I think it's so sophisticated. I never knew you had any from your previous photo's but I definitely suggest you leave it instead of dying it. Also congrats on the engagement!!!! Even though you two have gone through major milestones together it's still a very special and exciting time.

Farah said... Best Blogger Tips

Congratulations! I am very happy for you! It sounds like your husband created a magical moment. So lovely.

My husband and I were together for 13 years before we got married. We knew that it wasn't a wedding or a marriage license that made us a family . . . but ultimately we wanted to celebrate our "family-ness" with our community, so we had a wedding.

Laura said... Best Blogger Tips

Congratulations! And it's totally awesome to be engaged to the man you've been in love with for so long. My husband and I finally got married last year after being together for 10 years and having 2 kids. It was great to share the wedding with them. And it's way easier to plan a wedding when you know your partner so well and have already built a life together.

Terrific dress as well. I love the greenery on the shoulder :)

Serena said... Best Blogger Tips

April said... Best Blogger Tips

Incredibly sweet! I was wearing pjs when I got engaged...I love your dress but wouldn't change a thing! My hubby went out an bought my birthday present...which I was fully expecting to be a ring when he got home I was in my pjs on the couch he gave it to me and after I searched desparately to find a ring buried under the adorable outfit he bought me, I said trying to hide my disappointment "I'll go try it on" Then when I walked past him he stopped me, pulled out the ring, and said "See how this looks with it" Aww I haven't told that story in what seems like ages! It makes me smile! I bet you are so excited! And trust me you may think much won't change...I thought the same but I don't know after we got married...we just seemed closer. I didn't think that was possible but I guess it's sort of like that song "And I thought I loved you then" I wish you guys many years of happiness together. Oh! and now I am so jealous! You have the option of one of Anthro's wedding gowns!...I so want to renew my vows after seeing those!!! congrats again!

angela bergsma said... Best Blogger Tips

this is such a special dress! Congrats and I am not sure I would be so generous giving away this beauty if it had such sentimental value as that! (I am quite a saP!)
But, this would be perfect for me as I love the shakespearesque midsummer nights dream feel to it, and that I got engaged (13 years ago!) to my best friend and on Christmas eve in front of both of our families-1 large box wrapped inside another, and another...getting smaller and smaller until the tiny ring box and him on his knees-right after his mom and sister were killed 2 months before in a car accident...it was so wonderful to have a happy time to remember. This dress would have been beautiful with the red poinsettias and lights twinkling around! Hey, you can always relive the excitement....we happen to have a video of the whole thing...did you get video or pics?!?!
