Now that the beautiful engagement ring is planted firmly on your left hand, and you and your fiancé have made your engagement Facebook official, it’s time to get on with the fun process of party planning. Yes, you will have numerous decisions to make regarding planning your dream wedding. But before you get to that big day, why not take time to celebrate your engagement, by hosting a party with your closest friends and family?
Special Events Call for Scenic, Stylish Locations
One of the simplest ways to make sure your party is something memorable and stylish, is by choosing a special event venue to host your soiree. This can instantly help set a festive mood. Plus, it saves you the stress of last-minute cleaning your own place.
Look for a venue that can easily accommodate all your guests, yet one that will still feel intimate (no need for a huge banquet hall when you’re hoping to invite only your 50 closest friends).
Go All Out with the Food and Refreshments
While a slew of decorations may not be necessary to create a stylish atmosphere at your engagement party, it is a good idea not to skimp on the food you’ll be serving. The quickest way to a guest’s heart is often through a tasteful spread, after all. So whether you’re planning a late night cocktail party with decadent hors’d’euvres, or a full dinner menu, be sure to order plenty to keep your guests’ stomachs full and their hearts happy!
