Now if there's one thing I would go back and make sure I had, it's an engagement party.
You see, that special time you’re engaged but not quite yet at the ‘I do’ stage goes by in a flash and you only really get to call your love your “fiancé” for a fraction of time before it’s the lovely (but not quite so fancy and French) “husband”, “wife” or worse, “spouse”.
Why not make the most of that precious time before all the nitty-gritty of wedding planning and honeymoon organizing to throw a fun, get-together and celebrate being so in love you decided to spend the rest of your lives together? That’s pretty darn special.
Whether you’re into low-key gatherings, full-on glamorous celebrations, or quirky-themed parties, we’ve gathered a HUGE array of engagement party decorations organized by style and type of decor to get you started. The great thing about engagement parties is that, unlike weddings, which often come with certain expectations, there are no rules, no traditions, and absolutely no stuffiness necessary. You can really get creative and have fun with it!
