I am by no means an expert at wedding planning in this stage of the game. In fact, I am sure there are lots of lessons still to be learned and there will be plenty of hindsight when all is said and done. What I can do is provide you with some insight that I have gained over the last couple of weeks about planning, delegating and utilizing reliable resources. Continue reading

We finally had our engagement party. It was SO FUN! As you may remember we had given our party a theme of “The Hangover”, and boy did our family and friends take it and run. My Aunts and Grandmother made food and lent us furniture. My Dad some how came up with an honest-to-goodness blackjack table for people to play blackjack at and some of Will’s guy friends even made themselves shirts with quotes directly from the movie!
