Celebrating an engagement is one of the most exciting moments for a couple, and we’d like to share some pointers on how to throw an unforgettable party! There’s no need to save all of the best ideas for the wedding itself when you can add flair to the initial celebrations too. Why not use your engagement party as a way to set the tone for the big day? Take a look at these fun and creative ideas.
Mix it Up
What better way to mix, mingle and break the ice among friends and family than over cocktail stations. Bring in a mixology pro to introduce liquor basics and offer tips.
Quiz the Crowd
Test your guests and get everyone involved with trivia. You and your fiance can come up with dozens of questions about the two of you. Get creative and incorporate photos, songs or even silly childhood memories.
Hijack the Holidays or Sporting Events
Do you and your fiance have a favorite holiday or annual sporting event? Combine your engagement party with your annual celebration of choice or simply use it as a theme.
Wine and Food Pairing
The best celebrations involve the tastiest foods and beverages. Have guests try and rate different wine and food pairings. You may just find the perfect combinations to include at your wedding!
Not everyone can afford a destination location for weddings, let alone engagement parties. Instead, bring the destination to the party by having all decorations encompass a theme of your ideal city of romance.
Bring out the mimosa bar and specialty plates. Pick a caterer or restaurant with your top choices for both breakfast and lunch. Cover tables with flowers and celebratory decor that suits your style.
