My Big, Fat, Greek Engagement Party! ***Long & PIC HEAVY!!!***

Recommended Posts

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!
