Summer Nights are Perfect for Engagement Parties

Summer Nights are Perfect for Engagement PartiesHe got down on one knee. You said yes. Now it’s time to celebrate! Toast your new engagement this season with an engagement party. Summer nights are the perfect backdrop for engagement parties. An event venue with both indoor and outdoor facilities that add beautiful ambiance is a must-have for your celebration. Engagement parties are often the first opportunity for both sides of the family to meet, and it’s a time to honor the excitement of your pending marriage, so they are a special occasion every newly engaged couple should enjoy.

Decide Who is Hosting

Who hosts the engagement party? Traditionally, the bride’s parents throw an engagement party for the newly engaged couple, but anyone can throw a party honoring the pair. The groom’s parents, close family friends, or grandparents may want to host an engagement party to honor the milestone.

Plan an Indoor & Outdoor Celebration

Make the most of the season and enjoy your summer engagement party both indoors and out. Pick an engagement party venue that has beautiful indoor and outdoor space, so guests can flow outside and enjoy the summer evening.

Narrow Down the Guest List

Keep in mind that whomever you invite to the engagement party should also be invited to the wedding, so you should have an idea of your wedding guest list before planning your engagement party.

Set the Tone for Your Wedding

Your engagement party should not be fancier than your wedding reception, so make sure your event decor and meal doesn’t supersede your plans for your wedding.

Add Personal Touches

Your party should be a celebration of your relationship, so add personal touches that celebrate the history of your coupling, like sweet photos and mementos.
