Now that I've seen the news announced on facebook I've decided it's fair game for the blog :-D

Congratulations to Bridesmaid Jen on her recent engagement with Nate!

In other news, Congratulations to Bridesmaid Theresa on her recent engagement with Kerry!

Nate & Kerry are both very lucky guys!

We went to the reception hall for a food tasting this weekend. I wasn't really prepared for how it unfolded but we got to see a lot! Jon gave us a whole box of food to take home to taste. He said we'd be able to see how the hall was set up. I figured he'd let us take a look from the kitchen door. Instead, he took us up to the balcony. We could certainly get a good look at the set-up... but everyone at the reception could see us up there. Anyway, once we went back into the mansion part (out of view of the wedding guests) we got to talk about a bunch of ideas with him and his mom (who used to run the place).

He said we could come by any weekend we're around to see how the hall is set-up... we may just take him up on that offer next weekend!

Next weekend is Pre-Cana class... should be interesting. I've heard mixed reviews about these classes.

A Junior Bridesmaid and a Flower Girl

This post is long overdue! I posted it as draft and it got buried under a list of other posts. This one dates back to June 20th.

In keeping with the way I asked my bridesmaids, I paid the Build-A-Bear shop another visit. This time I went with Mom and Veronica. We picked out creatures and outfits. I have chosen to ask JB's older niece "Francie" to be a junior-bridesmaid and his middle niece "Sally" to be flowergirl. (those are their blog-pseudonymns)

I really wanted to build a pony for "Francie" but when I picked up the B-a-B pony, we thought it looked possessed. Since it was kinda creepy looking, I decided that I'd build her a tiger instead. All three of us liked that one... it was Veronica's first choice. The tiger's outfit matches the color of the dresses that the bridesmaids' creatures are wearing.

We picked the creature for "Sally" because it is cute and girly... just like her. Her creature is wearing a top with flowers sewn on the front.

The girls both seemed pretty excited when I asked them. I'm thinking they were excited more about the creatures than the whole being in the wedding deal. Anyway, I'm glad that they will be joining us in the wedding party.

... and the lovely ladies...
