You might still be in a state of shock and unable to believe that’s your finger with the giant sparkler on it, but you need to take that overwhelming euphoria you’re feeling and turn it into one heck of a party. That’s right. The ring you’re wearing calls for a lot of fun events, from your hen night to your big day. But before you get onto that, it’s time for you to boast about your fiance-status at your very own engagement bash.
So, without further ado, here is everything you need to know about pulling off a picturesque proposal do:
- The Simplest Way To Go Stress-Free
There is no point in letting anything ruin your first “look-at-my-ring-finger” celebration, which is why you need to remove all the stress you can and speak to an event planner, someone like Simply Elegant, who won’t just be there to help pull the strings, but remind you of anything you might be forgetting and chirpse in with a few amazing ideas too. Doing it all yourself is admirable, but hiring a bit of help is sensible.
- Pick A Party Host
If you’re the traditional type, then you’ll want to ask your parents (presuming you’re the bride that is) if they would like to play host. If, however, you’re not the conventional type, then feel free to throw your own engagement bash, or ask your best friends to see if they want to do the honors. It’s You could even go down the, “I want two or three engagement bashes” and take the pressure off any one person. You could have a quiet-ish one with your folks, a wilder one with your friends and then go and see your out-of-town college friends for another. Whatever you like.
- Set A Date That Suits You
There is no set time frame in which you need to settle on a date. It all depends on how long you plan your engagement to be. That means you could throw a party a few weeks after you said “YES!” or you could wait a whole six months. So long as you have a small family gathering super-soon, you’ll be free to do whatever you like. There is absolutely no rush when it comes to the all-out, lavish affair you’ve been dreaming of for a while, meaning the first month should be left alone.
- Your Perfect Place
Once again, traditionally speaking, the classic venue options are a nice restaurant, upmarket hotel or at the family home. But pretty much everywhere is fair game. You could have a beach party if you wanted, hire an art gallery to do your thing or have a block party in your honor. The trick is to pick somewhere that is special to you and to have it mimic the formality of the party you want to have. Casual dos can be done in a local park, for instance.
- Start Choosing Guests
There is only one important rule when it comes to your engagement party guest list: anyone you invite to your engagement you will also need to be invited to your wedding day.
