When couples get engaged, it is not always customary to have an engagement party. This really depends on the couple’s preferences. Some, who are planning to have their wedding relatively soon, may opt not to bother having an engagement party as this could be too close to the big day. But many couples do decide to have a engagement party. It’s always nice as an intial celebration for the couple, who have decided to take that next big step together. Also bear in mind that many couples these days choose to have a longer engagement in order to save for an extra special wedding.
The event itself is wholly dependant on the couple. Some may choose a lavish dinner and dance at a nice venue, whilst others may want a more relaxed and informal event such as a garden party. It is also a great opportunity for both families to meet, before the big day. As a method of announcing their engagement to family and friends, couples generally send out a engagement party invitation. Obviously close family and friends, i expect, would be told in person. But for those distant relatives, a invitation is an appropriate method. And just in time for all those recenly engaged couples, Baby Christening Invitations have launched a new selection of Engagement Party Invitations. These engagement cards come in a wide variety of design and colour, so you are sure to find something to suit your taste.
