I had a couple of blogging topics in mind for this week including one (that I'll get around to writing eventually!) about inspiring teenagers, but when I was looking back through the posts I've written so far this year I discovered that I didn't actually ever blog about our awesome engagement party.
A few people have questioned the point of an engagement party (which is kinda rude but whatever!) However we thought that it would be a lovely idea to get some of the wedding guests together for a pre-wedding knees up. As neither of us has much money the wedding won't be until the end of next year so what better way to see all of the people we love, especially the ones that live miles away.
We decided to keep it really informal and have nibbles and a
lot few drinks at my Uncle's pub, just around the corner from home. Lots of people came along and much to my surprise bought us lovely presents and cards, we even received presents from the US of A :-)
I was expecting to have lots of time to hang out and talk to people that I haven't seen for ages but I was lucky if I got more than a couple of minutes with each person. I've since been told that this is par for the course with weddings. The only downside to the party was that it was over waaaay too quickly! I imagine the wedding will feel like that too!
This is me and my husband to be:
Yes I do have legs!! Lol!
My family are now spread all over the UK so it's not very often we're all in one place. Thankfully my Mum and all three of my brothers were able to attend. Yes, I am the short one of the family......which is hysterical when I'm actually just under 6". Must remember for the wedding to keep my high heels on to have the family photos taken:
The girls outfits are from New Look including this awesome bodycon dress that my Mum is wearing. My Mum always looks impossibly glamorous!!
We also managed to tell people the date of the wedding:
Now back to the wedding planning!
