How to Plan a Terrific Engagement Party

Whether you are family members or close friends of the bride and/or groom, there can be a lot of pressure associated with throwing the perfect engagement party. Here are a few tips to help.

  • Find the right venue – If you want things to be formal, you may have to rent a venue. If a friend or a family member has a big enough house (or yard, depending on the season), you can have a less formal engagement party and reduce your expenses significantly.
  • Focus on the guestlist – This is when the closest friends and relatives of the bride and groom may meet for the first time, so be sure to keep things relatively small and focus on the people who mean the most to both.
  • Share the registry – While gifts are not a requirement for engagement party guests, if someone does want to get something, seeing the wedding registry in advance will help them to make good decisions.
  • Delegate – Don’t feel like you have to do everything yourself. Even if you are hosting the party at your own home, you can still have others in charge of setting the tables, decorating the gift table, or creating a playlist as background music. You should also think about hiring a caterer because this will remove the greatest burden of the event from off of your shoulders.
