Engagements Gifts

When I got engaged it made some of my co-workers quite happy. Yes, there were happy for me. But there was a little bit more than that.

I have two co-workers who were married earlier this year. Since I was now engaged it meant that they could get rid of gift me with some of the wedding materials they still had lying around the house. Without lifting a finger on my part I am now the owner of the following...
2 wedding dress catalogs, 2 issues of Brides, 2 issues of Modern Bride, 1 issue of The Knot, 1 issue of For the Bride, 2 local weddings guides, and a box of thank you cards. There's also a copy of The Knot Complete Wedding to Weddings book, although that didn't make the picture. Of course it doesn't mean I won't adding my own stash of wedding magazines to the pile. I'm really looking forward to buying and reading Martha Stewart weddings when I fly back to California. But still, not too bad of an engagement present right?


  1. Not a bad haul at all!

    confession - I really love weddings. I'm single as a dollar bill right now, but that hasn't stopped me from putting together my wedding ideas in a folder on my laptop, ha!

  2. NICE!

    I LOVE hearing about wedding planning so please make sure you blog about it :D Lol

  3. That's awesome! I always loved looking through wedding magazines, even after my own wedding was over.

  4. Oh fun! I loved it when my best friends got engaged because that gave me an excuse to look at wedding magazines with them. :)

  5. I have a ton of old wedding magazines lying around from this year. I've tried giving them away but no one will take them!
    good thing people get engaged here like every 5 minutes!

  6. At least you didn't have to buy all of them!
