Wedding Week: Part II

When I decided to share my engagement pictures with you, I obviously forgot about these.  But I'm committed to showing you each step of our engagement journey so I guess I'll poke a little fun at myself.

The Khutbeh
February 16, 2008

So after 2 months of being engaged we threw a larger party for our family and friends.  This is usually the first big event where you celebrate your engagement with the community.  Oh, and apparently you have to wear a BIG dress.  Yea..I had no say in that.

I told you it was big.  In my defense, the dress DID NOT look like that in the photo I saw before ordering it.  It was supposed to be burgundy and it looked silky..what I got was a fuchsia dress made out of taffeta.  I looked like I was going to my Quincanera.( On second thought, I've actually always wanted one of those..)  When I saw the dress for the first time I wanted to cry.  I also wanted to grab the closest scissor and tear it apart but the party was two days away and I had no other alternative.  The night before the party I slipped on the dress and you know what?  I actually kind of liked it.  It was fun to dance in and it was too late to do anything about it.  If I could go back and choose another dress would I?  Most likely yes.  Sometimes I see the pictures and cringe, but then I remember the memories and I soften up a bit.

My hair inspiration came from Carrie Underwood, but I'll talk about my hair stylist in the wedding post.  Now, that was a story!


 At the Khutbeh, all it really is is tons of dancing with some hors dourves.  I think we only sat down once and only to take a picture.  When I say we dance a lot I mean we danced from around 7 p.m. to midnight..straight.  It was a fun night..and I'm glad that all of our guests had fun too.

And before I end today's post I wanted to leave you with this

See, I'm not the only one who wanted to wear a big burgundy dress!!

Tomorrow is The Henna.  Probably my favorite day!
