An engagement party is a unique way to showcase your style before your wedding day. These parties have evolved into pre-wedding ceremonies leaving so much room for experimentation and creativity. Whether casual or chic, there are numerous ways to upgrade your engagement party while simultaneously evaluating your options for the big day.

Make Use of Potential Wedding Vendors
Make the most of your engagement party by hiring potential vendors and caterers. Try working with an event planner to help advise on the theme, decor and venue and a potential wedding caterer on the menu. By utilizing wedding vendors ahead of time, you can set yourself up for success when it comes to your big day.

Tell A Story
To make your party special, create a menu of sentimental meals based on your relationship milestones or favorite restaurants, and don’t forget the drinks. Toast in style with a variety of cocktails and mocktails that are special to you or even curate a signature cocktail. Once the menu is complete, share these special memories with your guests by setting up stations with signs that detail the memories associated with each dish or drink.

Time it Right
Plan your engagement party during the holiday season to make it easier for your family and friends to attend. Also be sure to send out invitations for out of towners well in advance so they’re able to take advantage of cheaper flights and plan accordingly.

Engagement parties are getting more and more curated rather than just casual gatherings. Keep it simple but keep it special! If you’re interested in learning more about how we can cater your engagement party, contact us for a consultation!
