I know I'm a little out of order here!
But I wanted to touch base on this one more time
We had the engagement party back in September
you can read about it here http://ninadiane.blogspot.com/2010/09/engagement-party.html and also here at http://ninadiane.blogspot.com/2010/09/engagement-party_13.html
I am really glad we had it
it allowed both sides of the family to meet and have some time together.
it made the wedding and reception more fun and relaxed since everyone already had met
we did not have to go through lots of introductions
wedding tip ... most def have an engagement party! It's fun, you get to make a speech and everyone gets to meet...which makes the wedding even more relaxed! And it's just a great way to start all of the festivities that surrounds the engagement and wedding.
