ENGAGEMENT PARTY IDEAS AND INSPIRATION
Yay! You’re engaged! Now it’s time to start planning the most epic engagement party of all time. If your stuck for ideas, here are some sweet engagement party ideas to get you inspired.
SET THE SCENE AND SHOW YOUR PERSONALITY
Your wedding theme begins with your engagement party, so set the scene and the tone with some invitations that show what type of wedding you plan to be throwing.
KEEP IT CASUAL
You don’t want to give everything away straight away do you? Show your style but keep it paired back and completely wow your guests on your wedding day.
Don’t be afraid to inject some wedding elements into your engagement party. Have signs with your wedding hashtag, wear a white dress or other wedding inspired items.
WEAVE YOUR STORY INTO IT
Inject a few items into your engagement party that mean something to you both as a couple. Whether it be initialled balloons or beach elements if your partner popped the question at the beach, a personal touch is always a sweet idea.
HAVE A FOCAL POINT
One trend we are swooning over are photo walls. Create an amazing area where guests can take happy snaps on the day. Balloon and floral installations are all the rage at the moment and are bound to make a statement.
Keep your cuisine casual, your engagement party should be a low key affair, so you can have more scope with your food options. A cocktail hour, grazing platters and hors d’oeuvres are a great way to keep it casual and classy at the same time.
HAVE SOME FUN WITH YOUR FIZZ
We love the idea of a signature cocktail at an engagement party. Move away from the traditional beer, wine and champagne and opt for a cocktail that means something to you both as a couple.
Snapchat geo-filters, Instagram gifs and hashtags are a fun and social way for all your guests to document your engagement party and give you the chance to see moments from the day that your photographer may have missed.
TRIED AND TESTED
Your engagement party is a great time to test out some ideas you have been thinking about for the big day. It’s a good time to test out that wedding cake flavour you were thinking about, see if that caterer can handle the heat or whether that makeup artist is up to scratch. Testing out suppliers a your engagement party is a good way to discover whether they can cope with a similar amount of people on the wedding day.
