Engagement party Invitations Ideas

Engagement Party Ideas from Evite

The point of the party is to celebrate the spouses-to-be, so start with photos of the delighted duo — especially ones from the beginning of their relationship and/or those they don't have copies of themselves.

For extra points, contact the couple's parents and ask for pictures of the bride and groom growing up. Since these won't be digital, vow that you'll immediately scan them — if you don't have a scanner yourself, you can get it done at a copy store like Kinko's — and send the originals back that same day. (And then actually do that.)

You can blow up the photos at the copy store to hang around the party or make a photo display on heavy poster board celebrating the history of the couple that they can later show off at their rehearsal dinner or the wedding itself.

Flowers (especially the couple's favorites), candles, balloons and streamers also set a festive mood.

Etiquette

The bride's parents traditionally host the engagement party, but the groom's parents, a friend or even the couple themselves can also throw one. However, before you start writing the invitation, make sure one of the couple's parents aren't already planning an engagement party of their own. Feel free to have another one, especially if they live in another area or are only inviting family, but it should be after theirs.

An engagement party is usually held within four months of the question-popping and at least six months before the knot-tying. That said, you'll probably want to give the couple at least a month to pull together the guest list for the wedding (since the engagement party guest list will be based on that), plus a little time to begin registering for gifts. Although engagement gifts should not be expected, some guests will still want to offer a celebratory token, so it's helpful if there are some inexpensive items on the registry for those so inclined. However, since putting registry info on the invitation would suggest a present is required, let guests who want those details just ask for them instead.

Engagement Party Invite

Whoo, what a week! We've got our reception location, our date, and since our location does pretty much everything (The woman said, "Tell me what color you want the linens to be and how you want the lighting and I'll see you in a year." and I wanted to tounge-kiss her, I was so happy) we get to concentrate on the fun stuff right now.
My mom called last night and said she and my father wanted to throw us an engagement party, but she wanted me to help her create the invitations. The words seem simple ("Come celebrate the engagement of Miss -__-__- to Mr. Faboo. Restuarant, time, date, RSVP phone number") but should we include a line that states "no gifts, please"? I know engagement...

1. you don't need a videographer if your photographer will put your proofs on a dvd w/ music - probably $400 savings
2. photographer - parents want pics, nice large ones, an album for them probably isn't necessary - probably $500-1000
3. obvious but dj vs band
4. you can print seating cards or invitations on the computer. We just bought beautiful invitations for our son's engagement party (at staples) and total cost was $25.00 for 50. They came w/ invitations, response cards and envelopes. there are matching place cards and thank you cards available.
5. If you insist on favors, go w/dollar store ideas

Engagement parties  — Iowa State Daily
If it is a fancy venue, then it may be appropriate to have a black-tie event, but if it is a casual venue, it is not necessary to wear something so fancy as a ball-gown or a tuxedo.
