@kittybean: Usually, it is, actually! Sometimes posts disappear into oblivion, though. I’ve posted pictures a few times and gotten like 3-4 responses in weeks. 🙁 AYou could bump the post on monday morning for the weekday crowd, that usually gets more responses I think. 🙂 Anyways, really pretty e-party!

Holy smokes!! Your engagement party looks better than some weddings I’ve been to! If you planned this much for the party your wedding is going to be spectacular. I can’t wait to see those photos.

@kittybean: I love looking at photos, but often feel it’s redundant to just post “beautiful!” or something along those lines. Keep posting them though!

thanks ladies, lol my dad was insisting i was going overboard but this is just what i DO. lol, i have ALWAYS been an arts and crafts, DIY type because if i see something i like but it is just too much, i say, “hell, i’ll do it myself!” i was planning on doing the flowers myself, but the florist my mom spoke to insisted that if i ordered them bulk online that i wouldn’t be happy with the way they looked because 9 times out of 10 they come in pretty ragged looking. so i trusted his judgement and since my mom was willing to pay for them i just had the florist do the bigger arrangements. actually if i had done them i would have pulled an all nighter anyway. the photographer didn’t get a real good shot of the favors but they were mini peach-a-berry pies baked in 4 oz jars. they turned out very cute (although i was up till 3:30 in the morning the night before the party finishing assembling them), and i have tons left over that my fiance is just waiting for me to bake! haha. the blue mason jars on the table were a DIY though because i didn’t want to pay the astronomical prices i was seeing on etsy, so i took the ones my fiance’s family had and painted them with turquoise glass paint and you definitely can’t tell the difference in photos. the cake baker gave me a huge headache the night before/day of the party but it turned out okay. i just know not to order from them anymore!
can’t wait to do it all again for the bridal shower! 😀
and yes, i am planning to go big for the wedding, i just haven’t really thought of many ideas yet. i am sure they will start coming to me though when i start looking at pictures. i think i may leave a lot of it up to the event designer though 🙂 thanks for the nice comments! 🙂
