There are several events, and a considerable amount of work, that will take place before your wedding and reception. Your engagement party is typically one of the first pre-wedding events to occur. This, as the name suggests, is a chance for people to formally gather, and congratulate you and your partner on this major life event. Different couples will take different approaches to the event. While some prefer a more laid-back affair, others prefer to be more formal. One reason the engagement party is so important is that it is often the first time many of your family members will meet each other.
Using Your Party As A Chance To Introduce Your Families
While your parents and your partner’s parents may have met before, the engagement party is a great chance for everyone to build relationships. This is also a time for other relatives to meet each other. Because this event is partly about unifying two families, make sure you plan something that will suit the tastes of each group. This meeting is especially important if one or both sets of parents will be helping with the planning and costs associated with your wedding.
How Big Should My Engagement Party Be?
While the engagement party takes place relatively soon after the proposal, you should have some ideas about your wedding day already formed. One thing you should certainly consider is how big you want your wedding to be. A larger engagement party followed by a small wedding can lead to hurt feelings, as people wait for a wedding invitation that never arrives. That being said, if you want to host a more intimate ceremony, and use the engagement party to celebrate with more of your friends and family, make sure people are aware of this intention when you announce your engagement party.
