Engagement Party Planning Tips:

What to expect

This is your chance to show off your engagement ring, so you’ll want to get a manicure! Expect to do a lot of talking as guests will won’t to know if you’ve chosen a date, location and more. Also expect to receive unsolicited advice of what you should do. This is a great way to practice the grace you’ll need throughout the wedding planning process.

Guest List

If you or your parents are hosting, anyone receiving an invitation to your engagement party should receive an invitation to the wedding. For this reason, the engagement party is typically a gathering of your closest friends and family.If your friends are throwing the party for you, the rules on who to invite are less strict. While it can be more casual, you should remain aware of the number of guests you request attend as not to over burden your hosts.

The Tone

Your engagement party will typically be more casual than your wedding regardless of the level of formality you will have for your wedding day. Many engaged couples will celebrate by gathering for cocktails or dinner at a favorite restaurant or backyard BBQ.


Engagement party gifts should not be expected from guests, although you will likely receive some. As with all wedding related gifts, a thank you note should be written to the gifter. If someone is hosting the party for you, you should give them a gift of thanks at the end of the event.


The host of the engagement party will likely toast the newly engaged couple. Your guests will also want to hear from one, or both, of you, as well. Be sure to thank your guests for attending and your host and hostess.
