Party Planning : How to Throw an Engagement Party


So congratulations, you decide to make a commitment
to get married and now you’re engaged. My name is Lori Randall with Simply Divine Events
and I’m going to tell you how to throw an engagement party. Typically, the bride’s parents
throw the engagement party, but it could actually be anybody. It can be a close friend, a relative
who throws the engagement party. The first thing that you want to do when you’re planning
an engagement party is set a date. And when you’re setting the date make sure that the
bride and groom is going to be in town, they are available, that they are available that
date. And then the next thing that you want to do is come up with your guest list and
decide where you’re going to be hosting your engagement party. It can be at somebody’s
home, it could be at a restaurant, it could be at a banquet hall, anywhere that you like
it to be. It can be as casual or elegant as you like it to be. When you’re looking for
your guest list, kind of keeping it small and intimate. You don’t want to invite, you
know, all the co-workers and everybody you would, that you would invite to the wedding.
Think of just family and close friends and just really celebrate this joyous time with
the couple. When you’re doing a, when you’re doing an engagement party, you’re going to
want to try to think of a theme, if you can, and base it off towards like a pairs, like,
basically it’s your, your bride and groom, they’re becoming one, they’re becoming a pair
together, so you can incorporate the whole pairs. You put your menu, you can do things
that are pairs like a surf and turf or the cake and ice cream, those are matches, those
things go well together. You can put the bride and groom’s pictures, it’s, again, it’s all
about them. When you’re doing an engagement party, you want to be festive of the cocktail
type atmosphere, so you want to make sure that you do have a bar on hand, whether it’s
catered or you’re going to be hosting at your home. You want to make sure that you have
all the liquors for a bar, make sure you have the appropriate glassware for that. You want
to make sure you have your rums, your whiskey, your vodka. You might want to add some, you
know, fun Martini glasses and come up with signature cocktail. You can even do like a
pair of Martini, kind of make it a little theme. Also very important, make sure you
have champagne, champagne glasses, you could do a toast to the bride and groom and wish
them well on their engagement and their life together. So those are some ideas and those
are some tips on how to plan an engagement party and I wish you the best of luck. Again
