So you’ve taken the leap and decided to tie the knot. You must be thinking of how you can announce the wonderful news to the world! Be it a simple announcement over dinner or an extravagant party on a private yacht - this first tangible step marks the prelude to your actual wedding day.

Depending on your preference, an engagement party can be held practically anywhere.

And here are a few ideas to start the ball rolling.


  • A beach party in the sunny outdoors
  • An afternoon tea in your own garden
  • A museum for those who love the arts
  • That beautiful place where you both locked eyes
  • Cocktail party at you favourite bar


  • It should be at least 6 months before your wedding.
  • You and your partner must attend the party (if it is not hosted by you).
  • Depending on the formality, you can either send an invitation card or simply make a phone call.
  • A toast, usually by the bride’s father or her fiancé, is a great way to break the news to unsuspecting guest.
  • If you have determined your wedding date, this is a good occasion to announce it.
  • Do not expect gifts, but if you are presented with them, open them privately. Remember to send a thank-you note.
  • Also remember to thank your party host with a note and a little gift.

Have fun and enjoy planning your engagement party; this will help kick-start your engine to plan the next bigger one – THE WEDDING! Yippie!
