Have you recently got engaged?
First of all, all newly engaged couples, please accept our best wishes on your engagement! This incredible moment opens an exciting chapter in your life that you have been waiting for and are ready to begin. We know that after a romantic proposal every bride-to-be has a lot of things on her plate. There are many challenges to face, from planning an engagement party to planning the big day. One step at a time is all it takes, don’t jump right into planning your wedding, start smaller, with your engagement party! Take a deep breath and read our basic tips and advice to organize a fabulous party. The party is the excellent way to practice and master your event planning skills before starting to prepare for your wedding.
So, let’s kick off your wedding countdown with an engagement party to celebrate the big news with your family and friends, announce your wedding date and maybe give away more details about your celebration. Remember that you can have both the perfect engagement party and dreamy wedding on almost any budget if you decide what is important to you and your fiancé beforehand. Putting everything on paper helps prioritize what you have discussed and see it all in front of you.
Choosing a date sounds simple but having an appropriate day and time that fit you, your host and your guests’ availability can be a challenging task. We would recommend using an online tool to set up three potential dates and send along to your guests to rank those dates. This way, it will be much easier to select the best date and time for the majority of the guests.
Another thing to consider while planning your engagement party is the theme and decorations. Decorations are important and will help set the tone for your engagement party. You can make them unique, personal and reflective of you and your fiancé personalities. What is cooler than a cute DIY backdrop with photos of you, your fiancé, family, and friends showcasing fun memories and special moments together? Not to mention, it can be a great bonding time for your friends and family when you all get together to work on the decorations for your engagement party. Do not forget to keep your budget in mind as it is easy to get carried away picking different décor. A top tip is to create a Pinterest board, make a list of things you need to buy and most importantly stick to your shopping list!!!
