After the marriage proposal and you two have made the decision to get married, the next stage is an engagement party. Ok, wondering how you should organize an engagement party and what to do? Don’t worry, here are some engagement party tips you could find useful.
An engagement party is an occasion at which the families and parents of the would-be-couples meet for a get-together and get familiarized with each other. The would-be-couples also share their love story and the happy moments they’ve had together in the past. Likewise, they can announce their intention to get married to everyone present and probably announces the wedding date also.
Planning an engagement party is as important as planning for your wedding, therefore you will need to do it carefully and spend some time planning. Your engagement party should hold not later than three months after the proposal. During the three months, you should work together with your partner and even friends and families to put things into place. Make decisions with your partner and also carry your parents along about every development relating to the engagement party.
Traditionally, the engagement party should hold at the would-be-bride parent’s home. Although you can decide on another venue if your partner or parents suggest you do. The type of engagement party you are planning will determine the venue that will be suitable for you to use.
An engagement party should include your parents, close relatives, and family members and close friends. If you are considering organizing a small party then you should invite only your immediate family members and friend. You can send them an online invitation or mail a printed invitation card to them but make sure that they get the notices on time.
Your engagement party is a part of the wedding activities that you should observe just like the bachelorette party, bridal shower, wedding rehearsal night and so on. However, you must make sure you look your best at least to stand out among the crowd. Your dress should complement the kind of engagement party you are organizing whether formal, informal or traditional engagement party. You can spend some extra dollars for a new outfit or look into your closet for a good looking sexy gown.
Your guests will want to know how much you love one another that gave you the courage to decide on getting married to each other. Therefore, you should plan to have a toast to express how much you love each other. Also, share your love story, how you met, the wonderful moments you’ve had together and places that you’ve visited together.
