    Hi girls

    I am pretty new on here and loving it. Thought I would post a few pics of where i am up 2 at that mo x

    H2B and I got engaged in April 2009 at Peckforton castle in Cheshire and we knew (well I did lol) we wanted to get married there. It became more of priority than the dress.

    The castle is now booked for Valentine's Day 2011

    Following the engagement H2B and I set about arranging an engagement party which really hepled us appreciate the level of planning required for a wedding!!!! I tried to keep the party on small scale which just did not happen...H2B was not suprised lol.

    A few pics of the vegas theme party

    The cake

    Me

    After the party we set about serious planning. The one thing I took from the party was to make sure that me and H2B took time during the wedding day to spend with each other because when we look back at the party we must have only spoke on a few occasions due to doing the rounds with relatives and friends!!!!!

    A few more pics of the venue

    Looking good! :) I wish we had an engagement party as fun as that, having a vegas theme was a good idea!

    The venue looks amazing.... I guess you can stay there too? It looks like you have really thought the planning out well :D.
