- Wedding: May 2014 - Smithfield Center
I’m really excited about our engagement party tomorrow – mostly for two reasons:
1. We’ve been engaged almost a year and have done nothing wedding-related so it makes me happy to FINALLY be doing something!
2. All of our family can meet!
We’ve been dating for 5 1/2 years and yet no one from our families has met so I’m really excited about it. BUT bees, seriously, it’s been stressful I’m not going to lie. I’ve been spending so much time on things I feel like shouldn’t be spent on – for instance, our favors. I ordered flower seeds in the shape of hearts (adorable!) for our favors, got the boxes for them from party city, made a llittle sign for the inside of the box that says ‘plant these seeds and let love grow,’ had to glue those tags on the inside top of the box, stamp our thank you tags, put flowers on the thank you tags, then wrap all the boxes with ribbon and attach the tags with said ribbon. It’s just…a lot more than I was expecting! I will definitely be giving myself more time to do this kind of stuff before the wedding.
ANYWAY, if you even bothered to read that whole thing, thanks for doing so!
Did you have an engagement party? How did it go? What did you wear? Favors?
My cousin will be taking pictures so maybe I’ll update with some pics later on. 🙂
