My wonderful bridesmaids and, my mom and FMIL threw us an engagement party. It was right around Halloween so it was a costume party. My FI and I where Wall street (FI) and the Taxpayers (me) and we are getting married. get it? This was right around the start of the huge financial crisis and right after the first bailout given by the Fed. We wanted his brother to dress up as Uncle Sam with a shotgun but he wouldn't do it. For some reason no one seemed to have remembered to take pictures but here are a few I have been able to scrounge from others who attended.
My parents dressed up as bikers I laughed so hard when I saw my dad I thought I would pee my pants. Some of my bridesmaids, Brooke (pink wig), Cara (blond), Heidi (purple), Erin (blue, FSIL) and Amy (FSIL best friend, not a bridesmaid) dressed up as a roller derby team. You can't see it but they all have on roller skates and most of the managed to make it through the night without falling down.
My FI (in the bow tie) and one of the Groomsmen, Jim.
Not a great picture of either of us but me and one the Groomsmen, Ted.

Kind of a bummer that these are all the pictures we have but a good time was had by all.
