    Hi everyone! I've been meaning to post a thread on my engagement party that took place on February 20th, 2011 for a while now, so here we go! I'm Greek, so it's pretty traditional to have a big engagement party (like a mini-wedding). ours took place in Toronto at a banquet hall, complete with my family priest blessing our wedding rings, 100 guests, a DJ and gorgeous decor, done by my Mom & I. I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to celebrate with my whole family in Toronto, as many will not be joining us in Cabo this summer. Likewise, we'll be having a 300-guest AHR in Edmonton upon returning from our honeymoon in August for my husband-to-be's huge Ukrainian family. Here are some photos from the soiree!

    Engagement photo and money box that I crafted up :)



    Our bomboniere's (our wedding favours): Mosiac glass candle holders (I wish I had a photo of them not wrapped!!!)


    Seating chart with rhinestone place cards (I got all of the materials for this from Michael's)


    Welcome table


    My Groomie & I!


    Getting blessed by our priest


    Sweet table


    The beautiful engagement cake my best friend (and BM!) made for our engagement!
