You're engaged — congratulations! Now it's time to celebrate with your loved ones! Here's our engagement party checklist to ensure you've got everything covered.

Introduction

The engagement party is the perfect opportunity to share your amazing news with friends and family. Whether you want a laid-back affair or a formal gathering, this checklist will help you plan the perfect celebration.

Setting a Date

One common mistake couples make is not setting a date for their engagement party right after getting engaged. While it's important to enjoy the bliss of being newly engaged, booking a date in advance ensures that your nearest and dearest can attend. It also gives your suppliers enough time to accommodate your needs.

The Guest List

Before choosing a venue, it's crucial to determine the number of guests you'll be catering to. Are you inviting your entire extended family or just close friends and family? Remember, your engagement party guest list doesn't have to dictate who will be invited to your wedding. Modern couples are breaking the traditional rules and customizing their guest lists to their liking.

Picking a Venue

Once you know who will be attending, choosing a venue becomes easier. It could be your favorite bar, restaurant, or even your parent's backyard. If you need a larger space, consider nearby venues that offer function rooms. Remember, your engagement party can be as formal or informal as you prefer.

Choosing an Outfit

While you may already have a stunning little white dress tucked away, you might also want to splurge on a brand-new engagement outfit. Whether you opt for a neutral-toned ensemble or something vibrant and colorful, wear what makes you feel your best. Depending on the theme of your party, you may choose to dress up or keep it casual.

Picking a Theme

Your engagement party can give your guests a sneak peek into the theme you've chosen for your wedding day. Whether it's a luxurious, rustic, or boho-chic theme, or even something completely different, consider how your invitations and decor fit into the equation.

Capturing the Memories

Savoring the memories of your engagement party is important. Consider placing disposable cameras around for that nostalgic early 2000s feel, or hire a photo booth for some extra fun and entertainment. If you want quality photographs to cherish for years to come, consider hiring a professional photographer or asking a friend with photography skills to capture the special moments.

Catering

Whether you're hosting the party at a venue or at home, there are plenty of fun catering options to consider. Fill your backyard with delicious food trucks or hire a professional caterer for a formal sit-down dinner. If your party is at a bar or restaurant, they may offer fantastic menus for you to enjoy. Make sure to cater to varying dietary needs so everyone can indulge in the tasty treats.

Choose the Perfect Soundtrack

The music sets the tone for any gathering. Depending on the atmosphere you want to create, curate a playlist of your favorite tunes or even hire a DJ for the event. Whether it's classy high-tea or a lively celebration, the right music will enhance the experience.

To Gift or Not to Gift?

If you don't explicitly mention gifts, guests will likely bring a little something for you. If you and your partner decide not to accept gifts, include a small note on the invitations to inform your guests.

Meet the Parents

If you haven't already, take the time to meet your partner's parents before the party. Arrange a lunch or dinner to have some one-on-one time, ensuring they don't get lost in the crowd of guests.

Now that you have your engagement party checklist sorted, it's time to start planning your wedding with our easy-to-use planning tools.
