Just a quick question girls - As you all know I got engaged in July and we've now set the date (yay!!) for our wedding which will be the 10th of October, 2010. So still over 2 years away. Just wondering when you think we should have our engagement party? My Mum asked me the weekend we got engaged whether we wanted to have one straight away but I said not until it gets a bit closer. I guess I was thinking about a year out? I'm just interested to hear when everybody else held theirs?
Also, because we're only having a fairly intimate wedding (only close family and friends), I was thinking that perhaps we should invite the extended family and other friends that we aren't going to invite to our wedding, to the engagement party? How have you girls gotten around family politics with aunts/uncles that you are close to and those that you aren't? I don't think I could just invite the two that I am close to to the wedding and not the others... that's why I was thinking that if everybody was invited to the engagement party I could get around this problem?
Sorry I'm waffling a bit! Just sorting through things out loud and I'd really appreciate all your input. Thanks!
P.S. Sorry it wasn't a quick question after all! Lol
