There comes a time in everyone’s life when you decide to make a lifelong commitment to your partner and most people follow tradition by having an engagement party. This is a way of advertising your joint intentions to family and friends. An engagement party is the perfect way to set the scene for a wedding sometime in the not too distant future. If you would like something a little different, here are a few unique engagement party ideas to help make the event fun for everyone.
- Casual and Informal – When you and your partner are ready to announce to the world that you are both ready to make that lifelong commitment, this is a time for family and close friends only. A nice buffet spread in the garden would make an ideal setting and with adequate seating and cover, everyone will feel at home in your home and with some music, the party will soon warm up. Of course, you will have to spend some time looking at engagement rings and there are online jewellers who specialise in custom made engagement rings for every woman, so you can select something she really likes.
- Themes – There are many ways to theme an engagement party and by looking at the guest list, you could pick an era like the sixties or nineties and try to factor this into the party as much as possible. Obviously, the music and the clothing can be tailored and with well-designed invitations and a few games, one can create the right ambience, and besides, theme parties are great fun. If there is a common interest across the guest age groups, this would be a good theme choice and if you all support the same team, then theme the party on that.

Have a good supply of champagne on ice (at least 3 glasses per guest) and the traditional toasting can carry on until late in the evening. If you are stuck for ideas, here is a great article that suggests many unique engagement party ideas that are guaranteed to please.

- Your Relationship Story – Using pictures and text, you can share how you both first met and how the relationship bloomed over time. If you have a projector and screen, why not create a slideshow that highlights those special moments? Your friends will really appreciate the gesture and therefore enter into the spirit of the union and this also helps people to understand how you both came to meet and subsequently end up together.
An engagement party is a very special occasion and between you both, you can decide on a theme or underlying principle that suits you as a couple. It is definitely a time for celebration and with a customised engagement ring that is befitting, you and your partner will have the perfect start to your relationship.
