Once a couple decides to tie the knot, an engagement party is a great way to celebrate with close friends and family. While an engagement party doesn’t need to be as elaborate as the bridal shower or the wedding itself, including personal touches can make your engagement party one to remember.
Serve Up Some Fun
Yard games can be the most defining element of a backyard engagement party. Setting up a variety of games, such as a bean bag toss, carnival games, or a volleyball net provides a casual way for guests to mingle while having a good time.
Set the Scene
While backyard parties are typically more laid back than formal engagement celebrations, adding a few elegant details can make your party more festive. Consider adding simple touches, such as candles, tablecloths, photos, and other tabletop decor to make your celebration feel special.
Like any outdoor event, be sure to have a backup plan in case it rains on the day of your engagement party. If your home doesn’t have ample space to serve as a backup location, renting a tent or canopy can provide a dry space for your guests. Tents and canopies can also serve as a source of shade during hot summer months.
Plan Your Menu
Most engagement parties don’t call for the same level of catering of events that are closer to the big day. A backyard barbecue can be a fun and inexpensive way to serve your guests and a great way to kick off your wedding season.
