Where to have your engagement party?

It’s a tough choice. There are probably a few factors worth considering before making a choice.

  • Cost (Did you have a budget in mind?)
  • Location (Central to your guests?)
  • Mess (Do you want to be cleaning up the day after?)
  • Supplies (Food, drink, invitations, helpers)
  • Tradition (Is your family or partners family going to like the decision you make?)

With these things in mind, do you want to have your engagement party at home or a venue? Both have pros and cons that you and your partner need to weigh up before making a decision.

At Homeengagement parties

Having your engagement party at your house or parents house can be cost effective way to celebrate without having to dip into your wedding day savings. There are many different styles of engagement parties that you can have at home such as:

  • Formal dinner party. This could be a small select group of friends and family to share this special event. This could include cocktails and finger food.
  • Informal “open house” party. For that more relaxed BBQ style of party, with people popping in over the day and continuing into the night.
  • Fancy dress party. If your not one for tradition, why not make it a fun party that everyone will remember. Do something fun and theme the party as a fancy dress engagement party.

Out On The Town

  • Book a function room. With many styles of venues available you can have all the options you could have with a home party.This option can be a less stressful option, giving you more time to mingle with guest and not worry about food etc. It is just a matter of weighing up the costs to see if this option is for you.

Whichever option you pick, remember to have fun!
