Engagement Party

April 18, 2012

 

This Saturday is our engagement party. It’s been 7 months since we got engaged, so it may seem a little weird we’re having it now. However, with the holidays right after our engagement and other events we had going on, the timing just didn’t work for us. It also happens to be almost 1 year away from the actual wedding, so we figured it’s a nice introduction to the festivities to come.

The past 2 weeks have been focused on getting the house in shape. We’re expecting a little over 50 people – some who haven’t seen the house before – so we wanted to make sure everything looks great. ManFiancé even joked we should have a party every month, because that always happens to be my best motivation for working on projects I’ve been putting off.

We’re trying to cut the wedding costs any way we can, so we’ve asked the guests to bring a large bottle of liquor or wine to help stock the wedding bar. ManFiancé and I have been living together for several years now, so it doesn’t really make sense to register for a set of China, especially when we already have one. In theory it seems like a great idea, but it’ll be a tough not to tap into a nice bottle of vino before the wedding. I’m pretty sure I can make it though, especially since it will save us a few hundred dollars.

Another way we’re saving money is by handing out our Save the Dates at the party. Instead of having to mail out and pay postage for 50+ Save the Dates, it’ll be easy to just give them to people at the party. Even if it’ll only save us around$20-$30, that’s $20-$30 I don’t have to spend on stamps.

Where we are spending money is on the food. I thought it would be cheesy to have a potluck, so we’re supplying all of the food and drinks for the party. We want to thank our family and friends for celebrating this joyous time in our lives, so it’s the least we can do.

I plan on taking a bunch of pictures of the party, so stay tuned for a recap on Monday!
