This made me feel really good considering no one else (including friends I've known for years) has shown much interest.
    That's awesome! We had an engagement party and we threw it ourselves, it was awesome! We got the furniture out of our house, rented tables and chairs from this really cheap place, hired waitresses and we even had 2 musicians from Brazil. It was an awesome night we had about 100 people! Go for it, you'll be glad you did it.

      We found the best little patio today to host our E-Party!!! They just opened it up last week. It is soooo cute and very nicely decorated. The best part is we don't have to pay to reserve it!!!! It's right in our "hood" so that's great plus it's part of a hotel so they have specials available for ppl who have too much to drink and don't wanna drive. For those in Dallas it's in the back of Cliff Cafe right next to the new(ish) Belmont Hotel.

      We went ahead and reserved it for Sat. May 24th at 7:30 for 20 ppl. They said we can adjust that number after we get a total head count. I made my list and there are 37 ppl on it including ourselves! I'm sure some won't be able to make it since it is Memorial Day weekend - I don't know what we'd do if everyone came, I'm not sure it could hold that many ppl.

      We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

      We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!
