If you'r a bride to be, or hosting an engagement party for a friend, follow these tips to help you plan an engagement party.
#1 - Keep is easy when it comes to location. Backyard and at home engagement parties are super popular for a reason. It's easy to get together at home and still decorate for a beautiful gathering. Other easy go-to venues could be renting a park pavilion, wineries, breweries, restaurant bar areas or party rooms. If this is an engagement party for a co-worker, the office break room or a conference room is the perfect spot for an engagement party.
#2 - Think about what guests would use. When it comes to party favors and personalized goodies for your engagement celebration, think about what types of things guests will actually use at the engagement party itself like personalized cups, can coolers, and fun snacks. These favors and swag are useful, functional and can be used as decor. Remember, we said keep it easy for the engagement party and we mean it!
#3 - Personalize your party. Take the opportunity to make your party personal. From fun cocktail napkins to beautiful signs, personalize those items to you and your fiance love for a fun celebration that happens once in a lifetime.
#4 - Include those most important to you. For at home engagement parties don't forget to include your pup and outfit your pet with a fun personalized bandana. Don't forget about those details where you can get your guests involved. An engagement journal can offer you the opportunity for your guests to sign a guest book page and a date night ideas box with cards can help you gather some great date ideas from your guests.
