Plan the Most Amazing Engagement Party Ever!

Getting engaged is a huge, happy moment in your life – so you will definitely want to share the joy with your friends and families by throwing a truly remarkable engagement party. How do you do that, though? How do you plan the best engagement party ever and what are the etiquette rules you should keep in mind when planning it? We have some tips for you –continue reading to find out more.

  • Be careful when creating the guest list. There are many etiquette rules that don’t make sense today – but this is NOT one of them: whoever is invited at the engagement party should DEFINITELY be invited at the wedding too. The last thing you want is to invite someone to the engagement party and then have them wonder what they did to offend you (in such a way that you didn’t invite them to the actual wedding).
  • It is recommended to create (at least a basic) registry before the party. Engagement party gifts are not mandatory, but some guests may want to bring something – and a registry will definitely help them settle for something you genuinely like (not to mention it will make their job a lot easier).
  • You really don’t need to rush. Don’t feel obliged to throw the engagement party as soon as you’ve said “yes”. In fact, you shouldn’t even be expected to throw it before the first month of engagement is over. Take your time and think things through!
