13 Feb Top Tips For Throwing An Amazing Engagement Party
Getting engaged is incredibly exciting and you are likely to want to celebrate it as much as you can.
Of course, showing off your ring to everyone that you speak to, as well as sharing things on social media, but sometimes that is not enough.
If you want to make the most of your engagement, then why not organise yourself an engagement party?
Not sure on where to start, here are some of our top tips for organising the most amazing engagement party ever.
When should you organise your engagement party?
Usually, an engagement party should be held around a month after the proposal as this is when the excitement is at its highest.
After that, you may find that everything has died down, not to mention that you are actually getting into wedding planning (not to mention saving up for the big day too).
Of course, people may be busy with only a months’ notice, but we can assure you that if they want to be there to celebrate with you, then they will be.
Invite who you want
The thing about engagement parties is that when it comes to a guest list, they can be a little like the wedding itself.
By this we mean that they can be somewhat political.
Chances are that your mum is going to want you to invite some of your more distant relatives, which may sound okay, but it can get a little out of hand.
You need to keep things a little smaller and intimate, as otherwise you will spend the entire evening walking around catching up with people.
Ensure that you invite who you want and remind your mum that there is a chance for those relatives to join in on the day itself.
Make it unique to you
Your engagement party is your first chance to organise something together as a couple.
So, make sure that you make it as unique as possible to you both.
If you have a set idea in mind then go for it.
After all, you need to get used to being able to express yourself and embrace ideas that you really love.
This is something that you are going to need to do for your wedding day.
Don’t expect to spend a whole lot of time with your partner
One thing that you are going to need to keep in mind when it comes to your engagement party is that you are not going to be able to spend much time with your partner.
The evening itself is going to absolutely whizz by and not only this, but you will also find that it is hard to catch a minute together when you are having to chat to all those people who have attended your party.
You will have plenty of time to spend together during the run up to the wedding, so don’t worry too much about having an evening apart.
Having an engagement party is great fun and is the ideal chance to bring all those people who you care most about together.
Hopefully these tips have given you inspiration to create a party to remember.
