- Wedding: April 2010
We became Engaged May 1st 2009, and the first focus of wedding planning/duties was not finding a wedding venue, or wedding dress, but to plan MY ENGAGEMENT PARTY..DUH? :). i WANTED SOMETHING NON-TRADITIONAL AND FUN for the younger friends and family of mine to celebrate John and I’s upcoming marriage.
I had been wanting to have a TOGA/ANIMAL HOUSE themed party for awhile and thought what a perfect time to finally get to have one! We had it at a friend of ours home off the river, it was perfect with a downstairs open floor plan, a large outdoor patio and a big yard.
I stressed a lot planning this since it was my first BIG..wedding related thing, and with the help of bridesmaids and my friends it was an awesome event. ..when it finally got to happen..you see orginally our E-PARTY was scheduled for September 19,2009.
But, that was before my sweet, sexy, soon to- be- husband, was severely injured 2 days before our scheduled party. It was a serious injury and John wasnt released from the hospital until Friday September 18, 2009, the party was definately off. It was the most tortureous thing to see John in soo much pain and so immobile/on pain meds, and for me to have to cancel our big party that he was looking forward too. It was in double hell, all Thursday and Friday because not only was I freaking out about John, but I was getting calls/texts from lots of people concerned about his injury and also wondering if party was a no-go?..LOL. so THEN I HAD TO DO THE DAUNTING/ANNOYING TASK OF LETTING ALL 118 INVITEES KNOW – that unfortunately the party would be TBA.
more details in posts to come!
