Did sparks fly for you and your guy this 4th of July?! Believe it or not, when the fireworks begin to burst, many engagements seems to pop up for those lucky soon-to-be-summer-brides! In light of your recent engagement, we know you are dying to share the good news with family and friends, and an engagement party is a great way to kick-off a great start to your wedding planning!
Engagement parties can be really fun, especially if your guests don’t know that you’re engaged. Some bride and grooms-to-be will keep their upcoming nuptials a secret from family and friends until their engagement party day, and then share the news at the party. The guests may thing they’re simply coming to a family BBQ, a family gathering or a cocktail party, and they’ll be overjoyed to learn mid-party that you’re actually surprising them with good news of your engagement!
Other couples just can’t wait to share the good news of their engagement and might want to share it with family and friends ahead of time – be it by calling family and friends or simply putting a picture up on facebook, ( you know who you are)!! If this is the route you take, celebrating with your loved ones is something we know you’ll want to do, but something your friends and family will want to do, too – as they’ll be so happy for you.
Your engagement party celebration can be completely low-key with a backyard BBQ or a cocktail party in your home, or it can be truly unique and extravagant at a local hotel, banquet hall or a special favorite venue of the bride and groom’s. The parents of the bride and groom typically host the engagement party, however it is also now very common for the bride and groom to host their own engagement party celebration, or to have it hosted by multiple family members and friends.
Set the scene for your engagement party with a chic and trendy engagement party invitation. Your engagement party is the first part of your wedding planning, so if you’re one of those brides that has been dreaming and planning her wedding since she was six, you can coordinate the engagement party invitations with your wedding theme or invites, (if you’ve already picked them out), or you can go completely different and not even begin thinking about your wedding colors just yet! Do whatever makes you most comfortable, and let your engagement party invitation show off your personality as a couple together!
