A and I are hosting TWO engagement celebrations tonight! One is in NYC and one is in Bama. We are going to the NYC one, well because it is closer! =)
The NYC party will take place at PJ Clarke's. I'm wearing either this dress or this dress (in solid blue). Thoughts? The party is at 7pm, so I want to blend in with the "I just came from work" crowd instead of looking like an exhausted, non-showered Mama of a wild toddler. The party is for A's cousin and his sweet girlfriend that I adore. They are getting married in June at the Bronx Zoo. It will be a great wedding and I can't wait to share it with y'all.
The Bama party is for our friends R and R. They are getting married in August and so the gang is getting together tonight to throw them an engagement celebration BBQ. Since we weren't able to attend, I offered to be in charge of invites. (I always do that when I can't go b/c it is a great way to help out!)
So here is what I was working with for the invite. They requested no gifts, so it isn't a shower and her parent's friends are throwing them an engagement party so it was a little tricky on the wording, but we went with celebration! Sweet R popped the question over Easter, so if you are doing the math correctly that did not leave us much time to plan this party. I turned to my dear friend Ashley Rice Lieb to design the invitation for the party as quickly as she could. R is one of my husband's best friends and I do not know his finance, R, that well, so designing the perfect couples/BBQ/wedding party invitation was a bit hard. I was adamant that sweet R&R not have an invitation with a piggie or a red picnic tablecloth (there is a time and place for that invite). Ashley is the best of the best and she gave me two adorable (and affordable) options in under a week and they invites were printed immediately! I had these little lovelies addressed and in the mailbox before we got on the plane to Mexico. So, here is the final product! Isn't it perfect for a couples BBQ!
