We are so not the huge celebration type people! Big and fancy is not our thing.  We prefer laid back, outside and rustic.

And not into

For our engagement party, we had a big cookout (it also was the first time we opened our newly renovated by us house to everyone) on our new deck.  My next door neighbor let us use their pool and we set up horseshoes and a volleyball net between our yards. 

 

 

 

We had our sound system outisde for music and had it catered by one of our favorite resturants.  And for dessert?  I made mini cheesecakes for everyone(plain, cherry and chocolate chip)

 

We had beer, wine and makings for pineapple upside down cake shooters!

 

Everyone had a great time!!!

 

 

 

We are thinking of doing it again this year(only it will just be a big party!)

We didn’t have one. We invited our friends to a local bar to “have a drink with us.” Meaning: Spend your money on booze not on us lol.

We’re having a pretty big one, because we’re getting married out of town – its like our “reception”. We’re expecting about 200 people. We’ve hired a band, booked a banquet hall and picked the meal options, and right now I’m in search of my dress, which is a pain in the you know what lol

Its going to be January 2014.

We had one small one at home where we live in Dubai with our ‘Dubai’ adpoted family 🙂 and a pre-wedding/belated engagement last month in the UK (where we are from). Both were awesome and I was totally happy and relaxed. We covered costs for everything and requested no gifts, even though some ppl brought cards and a few small presents. Here are a few pictures (non-pro) of our pre-wedding/belated engagement in London. It was so simple, but such a lovely wonderful day.

Our party was amazing. We had it outside at my parents house and catered a bunch of food and also DH’s parents made empanadas, a fruit salad and soup. We ordered a fancy cake that really symbolized our entire theme at the time. We were originally going to have our wedding in Cape May, NJ but that ended up not working out (originally our theme was going to a classy beach theme). We also had an icecream bar with lots of flavors and different toppings.

We had all of our closest family and friends there to celebrate our engagement. It was wonderful. We decorated our property ourselves with bright colored lanterns, sea shells, bright colored tablecloths, cute summery plates and little cucket candles. We played music from my ipod and everyone had a great time.
