Life Is Too Short To Celebrate Special Occasions Uninterestingly
CYD Events is one of the reputed service providers that you can always count on when it comes to engagement party hires and getting the best engagement props in Melbourne. The engagement party is the preparation for the biggest celebration of life – the wedding. In the majority of cases, the engagement party is not as formal as the wedding and it really is a wonderful excuse to let your hair down and party hard.
Engagement parties are a wonderful way to possibly meet an extended family that you may not have met yet. It is even an amazing excuse to invite more people than to the wedding as expenses are usually a lot lower for an engagement party. Your engagement party does not need to be lacklustre or simply a party for the sake of it. You can still style it or theme it in a certain manner to make it more fun and memorable.
With help from professional and experienced party stylists, our team at CYD Events can help you plan and decorate the engagement party without any stress. With such a variety of equipment to hire, engagement props in Melbourne and party specialists all set to help, your engagement party can be one of the highlights of your life. CYD Events are experts in engagement party hire and decorating. Get in touch with our team of specialists to get started planning your engagement party.
Checklist for Engagement Party
- Party Host - If you would like to stick with tradition, the engagement party is generally hosted by the parents of the bride. In more recent times, though, the majority of engagement parties are hosted by the couples themselves.
- Pick A Date - As you are celebrating your engagement, it is vital to choose a date not too long after the actual announcement. Anything up to three months after is just fine as a time frame from when you got engaged.
- Party Venue - Factors to mull over when selecting a location are the number of guests, setting, and indoor or outdoor preference. Select a place that fits your budget and even goes with the style you would like. Choose a space that keeps every person together.
- Guest List - The guest list is often bigger for an engagement party than for a wedding. It is a wonderful time to invite and meet extended family. Not every person you invite has to be invited to the wedding.
- Party Vibe - What kind of party vibe do you want for the engagement party? Will it be a more chilled or a cocktail style event or a simple sit down dinner? The cocktail style will make it simpler for the guests to meet and mingle.
- Decoration Choice - Not every person will select a theme for their engagement but the majority of them will select a style. Opt for a colour scheme and the kind of decoration you would like. Decorations will add to the overall experience of the guests at the party.
- Entertainment - It is an essential aspect and will be influenced by the kind of ambience you would like to create. Low key music, to begin with, is the best so that guests can socialise. Turn it up afterwards to energise the guests.
- Photographer - Every party always seems to take place so quickly and it is easy to miss things. Hire a photographer to capture all the moments and to help remember new family members. This helps when doing Thank You cards.
- Cake - The majority of engagement parties will have a cake as a bit of tradition. This is a wonderful time to do speeches and say your “Thank You’s”. The cake can even be served as a dessert to save on expenses for food.
- Thank You’s - Do not forget to do your “Thank You” cards after the party. Based on the way you invited the guests, this can be done digitally or in the mail. This is generally within two weeks after the event.
