Engagement Party Planning

Happy Friday!

Spring is just around the corner (we hope :) ) and that means sunshine, weddings and a lot of celebrating!

Planning an engagement party can be a little bit overwhelming yet also exciting! This is the first big moment of the wedding planning process and a chance to share your big news with the ones you love.

Not everyone chooses to have an engagement party but for those who have decided to, we are sharing some planning tips to ensure you enjoy the process!

1. Work as a team. With the changes in tradition, the engagement party duties no longer have to be left up to one host. Work together with a few close friends or family members to assign tasks and bring together an event without all the stress!

Or hire an event planner. For those who can, leaving it up to the pros to make it all happen leaves more time for other things on life’s to-do list!

2. Choose a theme or color scheme. This tip apples to every event you plan; big or small. Having a guideline to follow or a vision to come back to helps all the details come together much easier.

3. Determine a budget. Whether it is large or small affair, things add up quickly and you don’t want to feel bad about the money you spent when it is all over. Choose a number you are comfortable with and look up some creative projects you  can do. Regardless of your budget, you’ll be sure to have an amazing party!

4. Put together an invitation list. Even if you are planning a casual dinner or cocktail hour be sure to have a guest list and send invitations. It will make it that much more special.

*One item to keep in mind – those invited to your engagement party should also be invited to your wedding. Not sure who should be invited? Keep it intimate and simple with only your closest friends and family.

5. ENJOY! This is your first party as an engaged couple. Wear something that makes you feel special and enjoy celebrating this new adventure with the ones you love.
