Bachelorette Party Invites

I’m a non-traditional bride-to-be  planning a casual, country, offbeatish wedding. Not a fan of the traditional wedding shower idea. Or the traditional bachelorette party idea.

Now don’t get me wrong…I can’t WAIT to have time to celebrate with the people I love. Women. Men. Kiddos. All of the above. So heck yes I want to have some sort of a wedding shower, but not for ME for US. Couples time together with our friends/family. As for a bachelorette party? Well, I’ve been known to help plan quite a few theme parties that started out at Cozumel and wandered around Allentown, but now when I think of MYSELF? I just don’t know…

What I do know however, and this is the point of this post…is that I never, ever, ever want anything that would require an invitation with…high heels, the color pink, pole dancing, strippers, fancy pretty drinks, animal print, lingerie and the idea of one final fling before the ring? GOOD GRIEF! I know I’m an OLDER BRIDE, gonna be 38 when I get married. But even when I was 28 I wasn’t this girl…to each their own I guess.

Engagement present for the future Mrs. Ryan Miller?

Clothes. Baby, it’s cold outside in Buffalo! :)

(Hahahaha.)

Ryan Miller is getting married: Sabres star proposed to actress girlfriend

Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller has proposed to his girlfriend, actress Noureen DeWulf. Sources tell News 4′s John Murphy that Miller popped the question Sunday night at The Mansion on Delaware in downtown Buffalo.

Engagement TRUMP!

Nick Lachey, meh…

Jessica Simpson, um…really? A little pathetic so soon after Nick Lachey.

Prince William!

Woo!

EVEN BETTER…from Jezebel.

As if the coverage of Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s engagement wasn’t frenzied enough, during a press conference today at St. James’ Palace, Wills revealed that he proposed to Kate with his mother’s oval 18-carat sapphire and diamond engagement ring.

He explained, “It was my way to make sure my mother did not miss out on today and the excitement that we are going to spend the rest of our lives together.” 

Engagements!

CONGRATULATIONS to Buffalo Blogging Friends Kristina and Jim on their Christmas engagement! (Which I found out about on Twitter, which is highly appropriate.)

AND to Matt and Beth on their Christmas engagement! (I know they are going to make adorable Republican/Libertarian babies!)

Happy couples in love…Merry Christmas.
