- Wedding: October 2013
So, my engagement party turned into me planning a small affair at our home for about 12 family members, into +60 FAMILY GET TOGETHER HOOO HA BBQ AND BEER (I live in Alabama). My mother has essentially taken over planning it, along with all of the lady cousins in my family. This is very touching and has been a weight off of my back, since the car accident.
My mother mentioned that my fiance is supposed to toast to me, and he’s understandably nervous about doing it. He’s also a singer/songwriter and they really want him to play a song. Apparently I am to, as well? I mean, toast that is. Also, the parents?
I’ve never been to an engagement party before and I’m interested in hearing your personal experiences for reference. Also, should I be preparing touching memoirs of our romantic relationship? I think I should be. I’ve just never been to one, you see so I’m confused.
