Hi Jaime, sounds like a blast. I remember when it came time to ask my bridesmaids to be in my wedding I couldn't wait. It was so exciting, can't wait to see pictures!!!

Sorry I missed this thread yesterday...anyway let's see those pics! smile29.gif

 

 

I think it having your engagement party on the wedding date (one year before) is such a great idea! On our official one year countdown day, FI and I went to a nicer dinner and I made him toast with me...you know something to officially mark the countdown... he thought I was out of my mind but was a good guy and went along with my ideas cheesy.gif

It was so much fun! We had around 20 people show up - so nice to see all of our friends together in one place. Our friend who threw the shower ended up surprising us with a play of how we met, the engagement, etc. It was a bit off and most of the guests didn't really understand it but it was funny nonetheless. Also I found our that our friends are pretty good actors! haha Oh, and she gave me the script - I will have to figure out how to post it up on here wink.gif

 

We got some great gifts - lots of candles and wine which we love :) We are not registered anywhere so I was surprised almost everyone brought us gifts - unexpected surprise :)

 

Asking the bridesmaids went off perfectly!!! All said yes. My BFF couldn't finish reading the card because she was ready to bawl. So cute! And their individual reactions to the shots were classic. We served a Woo-woo (?). First BM said "Thanks for the Kool-Aid"... 2nd said "Mmmm, yummy"... 3rd made a puckery face and you could tell she had a tough time downing it. rofl.gif I gave them all unique seashell necklaces which somehow PERFECTLY matched what each of them had on - they loved it!

 

I have a bunch of pics but since we have this new HD memory card we can only upload them onto Martin's computer so please bear with me...

I know, I know I hate that this fancy new camera we got only takes a super mega memory card. My computer will not read it - neither will our Wii BOOOO sad.gif Luckily Martin's computer is new enough so it will, I need to crack the whip on him to get these up - there are a ton of really cute shots :)

Sorry I missed this yesterday. I hope you have fun. And if you ever need a girly shot in the future, I like both Red Headed Sluts (Jägermeister, Peach schnapps, Cranberry juice) and Oatmeal Cookies (Goldschlager (or Hotdam), Butterscotch schnapps, Bailey's Irish cream).
