Pre-Wedding Events: The Engagement Party

With so many different pre-wedding festivities, design and theming can be a real hassle! Especially when there are so many different versions to how people celebrate each of them.

Engagement Party

* approximately 2-3 months after the proposal – sometimes thrown by Maid of Honour

The engagement party is the kick off to all pre-wedding events; and unlike the wedding celebration itself, anything goes! It can be hosted by anyone. Sometimes couples may want to wait till they have set a date before throwing an engagement party.

Typically the bridal party, family members and close friends are invited to a cocktail party to celebrate the engagement. A major trend is selecting a theme and design that ties in something close to the couple’s heart. 

Some of the most creative themes and designs we love:





You may also want to set up a small wedding registry with gifts that fits with the theme and design of the engagement party- though gifts aren’t mandatory.
