The countdown to Stassi Schroeder and fiancé Beau Clark’s wedding is officially on. Several months after their engagement, the Vanderpump Rules personality and the actor marked the next step in their wedding planning process with an intimate engagement party held November 2 in West Hollywood.
The intimate fête wasn’t the couple’s first party after engagement. Immediately following Clark’s proposal on July 31, the couple and their fellow Bravo stars enjoyed a celebratory toast hosted by restaurateur Lisa Vanderpump in her Beverly Hills home. Now, three months later, the duo hosted a formal party with their loved ones to mark the next step in planning. Find all of the details about the couple’s glamorous celebration below.
Stassi Schroeder’s Engagement Party Dress
In keeping with her daily “Outfit of the Day” tradition, the bride-to-be shared a mirror selfie of her engagement party outfit. The Next Level Basic author wore a strapless white Alex Perry cocktail dress, which she accessorized with Jimmy Choo “Aveline” bow heels. The shoes have proven to be a celeb favorite: recent bride Hailey Baldwin was spotted wearing the same pair at her welcome dinner ahead of her wedding to Justin Bieber.
The to-be-weds hosted their soirée at a romantic restaurant in West Hollywood. Though the couple stayed close to home for the engagement party, it’s likely their wedding will take place overseas. Shortly after her engagement, Schroder revealed on her podcast that she hopes to have a small destination wedding in Europe.
The Guest List
If this was a prelude to the wedding, Schroeder and Clark had a rather specific guest list for the celebration with only their closest family and friends. Included on the guest list were Schroeder’s Vanderpump Rules co-stars Katie Maloney-Schwartz, Lisa Vanderpump and Kristina Kelly. Maloney-Schwartz shared a recap of the party on Instagram, writing, “SO MUCH FREAKING FUN last night!!! A night with so much love and special people. My heart feels full and my head is pounding.”
Noticeably absent were newlyweds Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright. While the fellow Bravo stars appeared to be in Atlantic City, New Jersey for a separate event, they didn’t forget to honor their friends. Cartwright posted an Instagram Story of a lit sign that read “Congrats Stassi and Beau” to make up for their absence on the night of the party.
The Personalized Details
The engaged couple went to great lengths to incorporate sentimental details in their party décor. The venue was decorated with candles, elaborate floral arrangements and photos of Schroeder and Clark that were captured throughout their relationship. Adding to the venue’s ambiance were the elaborate table centerpieces: miniature trees decorated with string lights and hanging photographs. The duo also provided a photobooth for guests to enjoy throughout the night.
