engagement news

Ok well I promised Save The Dates next buuuuuut I haven't had a chance to do that yet. I've been a busy little engagement bumble bee today and thought I would take a minute to write up a quick note about it!

So, as promised, I started focusing more on our engagement party today. I'm off work today thanks to my crazy head (long story - could probably have a whole blog to itself!), as I was yesterday (hence the reason there were a few posts!). When I got up this morning, first thing I did was add the future hubby's now completed guest list for the engagement party to the guest list I'd already started typing. And BOY is it long! We are doing some "sending an invite to let you know we're thinking of you even though we know you can't come" invites though, so the list will be a little smaller. But still. It's going to be a big party! Luckily, the hall we are having it in is lovely and spacious!

Second, I started contacting people to get their addresses - there are a lot of people we don't actually have addresses for! I plan on keeping this list for my siblings so that when their turn comes around, all they have to do is update the family addresses! Phew. At least we will have all the addresses for the wedding invites ready this way.

I also emailed a friend from school's wife, to see if she is still available to do our engagement cake for the party, and downloaded a bunch of templates for the dessert table at our party...but more on that later!!!

The most exciting thing about today is that we are hoping to get some shots done for our engagement invites, so I can start printing them off and getting them organised to be sent!!! I figured that our weekends are so busy lately, and we are running out of time, that this afternoon would be a great time to get some shots taken. It's sunny for once (it's been raining here a lot lately!), I have the afternoon off, as does future hubby, and my little brother will finish school with a couple of hours of sunlight left! So I've been looking up ideas for our photos (other then our sign props) and have got some that should be fun. I went and bought some sidewalk chalk today, so that should give you some ideas!

If it all goes through this afternoon, I'll post up some sneak peeks in the next couple of days...after we decide which ones we will use for our invites and STDs. Hopefully they turn out well!!! xx
