Happy Monday Friends! It was quite the fun-filled/love-filled weekend, so i'm dragging a bit today. Saturday, my future IN- LAWS (that's one of the first times i've said that - still strange that it applies to me!) hosted an ENGAGEMENT PARTY for John and I. It was beautiful. They rented a huge heated tent, had it catered by an incredible italian catering company, and invited many of our close friends and family. Friends and family traveled up to 5 hours to join us and celebrate our engagement and it couldn't have been a more perfect day. Well, a few degrees warmer would have been nice, but no snow or rain ... we'll take it! We ate, laughed, and had a great time with everyone who made it!
I did most of the decorations myself ... with the help of my MOH, Tanya. She made the incredibly cute RING TAGS that we slipped onto the stem of the wine glasses. I kept a ton of them to put in my scrapbook because I'm still not over how cute they are! The sign I did myself after seeing a similar one on Etsy. It was a fun project and everyone commented on how cute it was! It was really great to spend time with friends and family and it was so good to see many we haven't seen in a while.
Now that the engagement party has passed . . . it's time to start checking things off of our wedding to-do list. This week ... CAKE! I'll be back later in the week as we have an appointment with the most incredible cake artist around!!! :)
Speaking of... my Aunt Pam was obsessed with talking about the cake at the party. She brought us a beautiful engraved cake server set with matching champagne flutes as an engagement gift. Since she gifted us the cake server, she wanted to make her preference be known that she would prefer us to not get a fondant cake.
So I ask . . . PAST/PRESENT BRIDES: Did you choose a buttercream or fondant cake?
