Engagements & Reception


What is the perfect wedding reception venue? Of course, preferences of the bride and the groom will differ, but there are still several common points – happy guests, delicious food, marvelous cake, perfectly timed ceremony, toasts and nice decorations just to name a few.

  • What type of menu would be ideal?
  • What would be the best way to customize the seating arrangement?

When it comes to an engagement party, everything should be perfect – the ceremony, the dress, flowers, guest speeches, and many other details. The party is organized to announce about couple’s commitment. While planning the event, one should keep in mind that the budget and the amount of guests is worth limiting in order to save money for a great marriage ceremony. Inviting your family members and a couple of close friends will be enough to celebrate this event.

To celebrate fiancés status accordingly, it is important to think over all the details and take care about proper planning. The formula of successful engagement party is the following:

  • Cute decorations: Use flowers, figurines, photos, and other theme decorations to set a great mood for a couple. It is not a problem to find them in craft or party stores.
  • Snacks and drinks: When we talk about a party, it is usually associated with some food.
  • Entertaining activities: Music is a must if you organize an engagement party. A playlist of your favorite soft compositions will add romance and special mood to your event. It is popular to invite a local band, or organize piano or karaoke evening.
  • Fun activities: These may be games, “official” part of engagement announcement, toasts and congratulations, showing the proposal story, inviting guests to the wedding, watching comedies, and many others.

No matter how you imagine your engagement party, you should plan it very carefully paying attention to the smallest details. Parties of such type are usually informal events, so a range of activities is always a must for them. Do not forget to inform your guests in the invitations about the style of your party and the dress code.
