I received this Wedding Guide this morning! I mentioned in one of my past posts that we met a lady randomly in a cafe and she worked for a Wedding Guide and she said she would send me a free copy. And it came this morning. Whee! It's a nice surprise.

I thought I would put some of our engagement invites in the photo too. We kept it simple and used one of the photos from our engagement session. I sent out some of them a few days ago.

So at the moment it's our next priority to organise the engagement party. We already have a venue. It's casual but it's a nice place. My sis in law had her 30th there last year.

Today I'm spending time figuring out decos for our engagement party and because I'd like to make them and do it myself I checked out Martha Stewart Weddings for some paper decoration ideas. I'd love to hang some of these at the venue.








I love this idea especially because I'm such a butterfly freak. I might have to use this idea either at engagement or wedding.

Also we thought to have some type of engagement cake as dessert and I'd really like a Filipino chiffon cake. I don't eat that much filo food (especially cause I'm Aussie born) but I love Filipino desserts.

This was a cake for my mum's birthday last year. Funny it's her birthday next week actually! But it's soo good. So soft and light and the icing isn't too sweet.

Anyway, I'm going to the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival this week with my girls! Going to be amazing! This is our third year going.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the invites! Those turned out really well!

I'm a big fan of the Pom Poms and have thought of doing those myself, though I don't know how hard they are to make. I'll need to look into it more.

Love the poms! I was at a wedding this year where they had mobiles of little mirrors, crystals and butterflies hanging over all the tables. It was stunning!
