One of the most exciting parts of wedding season and getting married is all the festivities associated with marriage. The engagement party, bridal shower, and bachelor/bachelorette parties are times to celebrate with family and friends. Check out this guide for planning the best engagement party to celebrate your upcoming nuptials.
Pick a Host
As the guests of honor at your engagement party, you want to enjoy all the festivities without the responsibility of handling all the details. That’s why choosing a host is such a great idea. While you greet your guests, eat, and enjoy the fun, your host will be the person ensuring that all the plans are running smoothly. Your host could be a family member or friend, or even a member of your bridal party. You could even consider having two hosts, depending on the size of the event.
Pick a Date
In order to secure a venue for your engagement party, you’ll need to choose a date. This will give you some direction in terms of where the party will be held and when you need to start sending out invitations. Choosing a date will also give you a timeline for preparing all the other details, like the food and décor.
Pick a Venue
Speaking of venues, there’s a lot to consider in your choice of where to host your engagement party. How many people will you invite? Most venues have a capacity that you should keep in mind as you’re creating your guest list. You should also consider a central location to where most of your invitees live. If there will be dancing, consider venues that have a great sound system for the DJ or band.
Pick a Theme
Choosing a central theme for your engagement party will help all the other details become a lot clearer. You can use the theme to help you pick the kind of food on the menu, the décor, and even the look of the invitations. The theme will also help you decide whether the event will be formal or casual.
