Congratulations, you're engaged and it's time to celebrate!  

It’s party time! 
Have you decided to hold an engagement party to mark the occasion? 
Throwing an engagement party is a great way to celebrate your decision to get married.  Make sure you know the basics:

Engagement parties serve a number of purposes. It could be a way of introducing both sets of parents to each other over an informal meal.  An engagement party could be much bigger affair to which not only family, but friends and colleagues are invited too. Also, an engagement party is an effective way of announcing your engagement as a surprise to unsuspecting friends.  It is the perfect opportunity for you both to introduce your favorite people to each other.

Throwing an Engagement Party

Getting engaged is the perfect excuse to invite all your friends and family to a celebratory engagement party.  You’ll need to think about: invitations, a venue, food and drink, and entertainment.  You might also want to have a cake made and book a photographer for the party.  After all, it’s not every day you get engaged!

Timing & Numbers
There's no set time as to when an engagement party should be held, however in general, an engagement party tends to work best as an evening event.  An engagement party does not have to be thrown the day of your announcement, unless of course you're thinking of springing a surprise on your guests.
  The amount of engagement party guests will depend entirely on whether you're going for a small and intimate family gathering, or throwing an engagement party bash for all your friends.  Do you want to introduce people to your partner and get as many people together as possible?  Or are you after something more focused, an engagement celebration based around your closest family and friends?

Engagement Party Venue

An engagement party can simply be a get-together in the family home, in which case, it’s traditionally hosted by the bride-to-be’s parents.  Alternatively, an engagement party can be a more formal affair in a reception hall with caterers, or a private room in a restaurant.

Engagement Party Invitations

Send your engagement party invitations out one to two months in advance.  If the bride's parents are hosting the engagement party, then the invites should come from them.  An engagement party is not a dress rehearsal for the big day, so don't feel that you have to invite ALL your relatives and acquaintances.

Entertainment for your Engagement Party

If you're throwing an informal engagement party at home, you can probably use a CD player or IPod.  For a bigger engagement party event, it’s worth hiring a professional DJ or even a live band.

Making Engagement Party Bookings
The more you can plan your engagement party in advance, the better.  Even if you've decided to cater your engagement party for yourself and want to have a tent rental and party supplies, you'll need to book these, too.

Check your Engagement Party Date with your Key Guests

At any engagement party, it's important to check that both sets of parents are free.  For some couples, this may be the first chance for their respective parents to meet and welcome each other into their families.
