Footloose Themed Engagement Party

You’re engaged – you want to have a super fun party to celebrate your recent engagement and you just so happen to be a diehard Footloose fan. Well, that works out perfectly because so is  Events by Sarah Elizabeth. Using vibrant flowers, music inspired props and some vintage rentals, this Footloose Themed Engagement Party will not only wow your guests, but it will also present a perfect excuse to dance the night away.

After the original thought entered my mind (diehard Footloose fan here) I scrambled with how to involve the different elements of the film while maintaining unity. There are so many different elements of Footloose that you could grab a hold of and run with. I chose to focus on the color, music, rustic farm town feel.

A lot of brides are looking for ways to make their weddings unique, certain elements that will really wow their guests. This Footloose shoot contains many elements that can easily be used in a wedding. As with any event the details and how they are used are what can really make an event and tie everything together. For this shoot we incorporated elements in the centerpieces that weren’t just flowers, the books, the tapes the records – all important details from the movie. Coming up with distinct details that can go on the table to accompany the flower arrangements is always a detail that pleases.

I LOVED using streamers in this shoot – I don’t think I’ve used streamers since…. I can’t remember! Maybe you don’t want paper streamers at your wedding…luckily there are so many alternatives that create an elegant atmosphere with that fun streamer feel – ribbons, stringed flowers, fabric and more!

An important thing for brides to remember in decor is the actual furniture. Maggpie Rentals provided us with great tables and chairs as well as the awesome buffet and props! If we would’ve used a standard banquet table with white folding chairs the “feel” of the shoot wouldn’t be the same. Have the elements to give it that farm feel was key!

There are many different ways for brides to incorporate themes/styles into their wedding day to make it a truly unique experience that represents them as a couple. Every couple has a different concept as well as budget and the most important thing is staying true to what you want! You don’t get to rewind and do the day over so make sure the decisions you make are what you want!
