4 Steps to planning your engagement party

4 Steps to planning your engagement party

That sparkler on your engagement finger calls for the first of many celebrations to come. We at wedding car hire understand that your wedding day is just one of the many celebrations that mark the coming together of you as a couple. So, if you’ve just got engaged and are looking for some engagement party inspiration, here’s everything you (or your hosts) need to know in order to pull off the perfect post-proposal celebratory party.

Step 1: Decide who will host

Do you want to throw your own engagement party? Go for it! Traditionally it’s the bride’s parents that host, although these days this role can be taken on by absolutely anyone that’s close to the couple. You can also have more than one engagement party of course, so there’s no need to stress. Your family may want to host something more formal, whilst you might like to host something a little more casual for your friends- both options are great and it should be totally down to you to decide.

Step 2: Take some time to breath

This point depends on the length of your engagement, but you may want to throw a party anywhere from a few weeks following the proposal to six months into the wedding planning. Although perhaps you should take some time to enjoy yourself and give yourself some time to revel in your engaged status before getting wrapped up in party planning.

Step 3: Determine a budget

Detailed budgets aren’t just for weddings. Even if you plan on having a low key event, a budget it still a good idea. Knowing your budget also narrows down your venue choices, and decides on how many guests you can invite.
