How to Plan the Perfect Engagement Party?

Your wedding is one of the biggest moments of your life – but that doesn’t mean the pre-wedding events aren’t important. On the contrary! These moments build up to the big moment, helping you create a sense of excitement and anticipation among your guests, so that they come to your wedding in a really good mood.

Obviously, your engagement party is one of the most important pre-wedding events – but what are some of the absolute essentials you should remember about planning such a party?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • It doesn’t have to be very big. Usually, engagement parties are consisted of the closest friends and relatives – so you really don’t have to go over the top with the list. One rule to keep in mind, however, is that those who are invited to this party should absolutely not miss from the list of guests for the wedding.
  • It can be themed. No matter what kind of event you may be planning, adding a theme to it can be a complete game changer. If you already have a wedding theme in mind, you can tie it into your engagement party theme – but this is not mandatory. You can be as formal or informal as you want with this theme (and with the party in general) – so don’t be afraid to get creative!
  • Great food is key. It really, really is. Food is a major element in every kind of event out there and your engagement party makes no exception. Keep in mind that it is very likely that your engagement party will be quite casual and intimate – so serving some hors d’oeuvres can be the best choice. Make these snacks unique, though – your guests will always love a special experience!
  • Party games can and should be included. Since this is a romantic occasion, why not take the opportunity to play some wedding-related fun games? Even basic Mad Libs with a wedding twist can be a really fun addition to your engagement party – everyone will enjoy it!
