    I love the engagement book! And that’s such a great idea to get everyone to write something a little more personal than just congratulations. It sounds like you have lots of the wedding planning underway already, so kudos to you. =)

    That’s real nasty of you…. making people when they’re still sober get creative and personal when all they want to do is drink and steal free food…. my hand felt so empty and my cocktail neglected for so long…… hope it was worth it!!! *shakes fist*

    What a sweet and lovely party! I’m a “no presents” kind of girl too – so glad to see someone else is too! They are quite rare, I find. 😛

      I do LIKE presents.. but it just feels all embarassing and weird to receive them, if that makes sense 😛

    Everything looks wonderful! Swear, marriage is so far from my thoughts right now but your pictures always make me feel a bit hopeful 😉

    Ditto on the cards! Those thank you cards are the best! Love the whole idea of them 🙂

    What a great post with great ideas 🙂

    You and Chris are so creative! I wish I had as much creativity when searching high and low for a guestbook, and those thankyou cards too!
