Lauren + Drew met at a "Tacky Christmas Party" four years ago - clearly this was the theme of their engagement party! The invitations set the tone, looking, reading, and feeling like a Christmas Story. We mailed each guest a booklet full of rhymes explaining how Lauren + Drew met and requesting their presence at the party! The decor incorporated some of their family traditions and lots of tacky Christmas decor. We bargained shopped at thrift stores and Grandma's basements throughout St. Louis to come up with the decor. We put each staff member in a tacky Christmas t-shirt and even served Christmas inspired, cold cocktails! Guests even went home with a 2lb chocolate santa courtesy of Bissinger's Chocolate. It was the perfect night for my best friend and her fiancee!
