Time-travel with me to the sights and sounds of the Pemberley Ball during the Regency period.
Last year's Mr Darcy found his love, Elizabeth. They were happily wed.
However, this year's ball is hosted by the very single and very eligible other Mr Darcy.
So, ladies should don on their best gowns - or procure new gowns for the event in hopes of catching a Darcy ;-D
You may also encounter classic and not-so-classic Pride and Prejudice characters.
Oh dear, you will be in for a fantastic time!
Please RSVP in comments with a link to your RSVP post in which you tell me:
1. Your Pemberley Ball party name. You can make one up here.
2. Image of your ball gown.
3. Image of your favorite Darcy.
4. Make sure to include a link back to this Pemberley Ball invitation.
If you prefer, you can tell me your details in comments. Make sure to include a link to a picture of your dress or persona.
AND, include your email address.

RSVP sample from Lady Vee:
Greetings! I am the wife of Lord Vee of America. We have returned to attend this year's Pemberley Ball event as we had a splendid time in attendance last year.
My daughter, Faustina is with us and we hope that she may meet someone to her liking. The last fete we attended was the Masked Ball in May. There were four men vying for her heart at the time. The men were quite handsome with special attributes of their own. They were Juan de Spades, Johnny o'Mallet, Jacques D'amond and Jonathan Lammerts van Hartz.
Rumor has it that one or more of these men may be at the Pemberley Ball. We shall see what becomes of our Tina at this event.
My favorite Mr. Darcy:
from Lost in Austen (2008)
