Congratulations on your engagement! Now, it's time to start planning your engagement party. This checklist will guide you through the essential steps to ensure a memorable celebration with your loved ones.

Pick a Date and Choose the Venue

First things first, decide on a date that works for all of your immediate family members. Aim for a few months after your engagement, to keep the excitement alive. Make sure it's nine months to a year before your wedding, allowing enough time for your guests to RSVP.

Next, find a venue that suits the season and size of your party. You can go for your home or backyard, a bar or restaurant, or even an unconventional Peerspace venue. In Los Angeles, for instance, you have phenomenal options like a secret garden loft with a balcony or an enchanted rainforest event space. Remember, your engagement party can be classy yet casual, saving the extravagance for the wedding.

Create a Gift Registry

Consider creating an online gift registry, although it's not obligatory. If you prefer not to receive gifts at your party, let your guests know. However, if you're open to receiving gifts, a registry makes it easier for your guests to choose small to mid-range items for you to open after the event. Remember not to mention the registry on your party invitation as per proper etiquette. Alternatively, you can create a registry for your wedding and guests can decide whether to bring gifts to the party.

Send out Invitations

Now that you've sorted the initial checklist items, it's time to send out your party invitations. Decide whether you want to go formal with physical invitations or keep it casual with an e-mail or online invite. You can also take this opportunity to experiment with the text and colors you plan to use for your wedding invitations. Remember, it doesn't have to be perfect, so don't stress about it.

Find a Caterer and Photographer

Depending on the scale of your party, consider hiring professionals to handle the food and photography. If you're not planning a low-key BBQ or backyard gathering, hiring a caterer ensures that your guests' food and drink needs are taken care of, allowing you to focus on socializing. If you're hosting the event at a Peerspace venue, reach out to your local host for recommendations or utilize the Concierge service to arrange for a professional caterer and bar staff.

You might also want to consider hiring a photographer to capture the precious moments at your engagement party. While some couples may have had their engagement photos taken already, having a photographer at the party allows the entire family to be included. Alternatively, you can book a photo booth for your guests to take candid pictures without the formality of a dedicated photography session.

Remember, your engagement party is a precursor to your wedding celebration. Keep it fun, relaxed, and true to your style. Cherish this special time with your loved ones as you embark on this exciting journey together.
