Becoming Engaged / Engagement Party

You're Engaged! Somehow, in this crazy world, you found each other, fell in love and have decided to get married. Your heads are spinning and now is the time to share your excitement with your family and friends. You may want to follow tradition, by firstly announcing your engagement to your closest family members, and then it's time to party!

An engagement party is the ideal way to bring everyone together and to announce your special news. Your celebration can be as simple as a get-together in the park, a backyard barbecue, or a relaxed luncheon with friends, or as elaborate as a formal cocktail party or formal sit-down dinner. Whatever suits you, remember to take lots of photos and videos to mark this memorable occasion and the beginning of your wedding planning journey.
