This article is all about getting engaged and how to throw a great engagement party for the occasion. It includes some tips on choosing a ring, where to get one from and the various styles on offer.
Getting engaged is a big thing in anyone’s life and many people like to celebrate it with friends and family by hosting a party. It can also be an ideal way to introduce people to each other before the wedding. There are various traditions surrounding engagement parties, but it depends on the couple. It is known for the bride’s parents to host the first celebration, although this is completely up to you and many couples like to organise the party themselves.
It is a good idea to host the party within the first few months after getting engaged, while it is still fresh in people’s minds, but before the serious wedding planning stages commence. It is up to you who you invite and you can lay on some simple snacks, so there is no need to go overboard. You may want an intimate party with a few loved ones, or a larger do. Either way, plan it to suit you and your partner. It also gives you a great chance to show off your engagement ring!
Choosing an engagement ring does not need to be a hassle. There are many different options available to choose from, with various sizes, colours, designs, materials, patterns and gemstones. Varying price tags mean that you do not need to break the bank when buying a ring, but if you can afford to, then there are some extravagant options out there and diamond is often the top of the range choice. Sapphires and rubies can both be great alternatives though. It is even possible to create a bespoke design for a unique ring to make it even more special.
