  • Generally, engagement parties aren’t dominated by a lot of rules. They are usually smaller and more intimate than actual weddings (and in most cases, they’re even smaller than rehearsal dinners). But if there’s one rule you absolutely have to obey it’s this: whoever is invited to this party MUST be invited to the wedding as well – and there’s no way you can compromise on this if you don’t want to make people feel bad or awkward.

Remember, once your engagement party is over, it’s time to start searching for your wedding venue (if you haven’t done this already). Here at Bride World, we have gathered a splendid list of banquet facilities – so don’t forget to check us out!

  • Gifts aren’t expected at this kind of events. Still, given this is a huge milestone in your life, many of your guests will not want to come without a gift. Make their lives easier by setting up a basic wedding registry they can pick gifts from – they will be more than grateful for this.

  • Toasts aren’t expected at engagement parties either. However, some of the people invited might want to give a speech. If you know any of your friends is passible of saying bad jokes (especially after a couple of drinks), remember to talk to them and tell them you wouldn’t appreciate inappropriate stories and anything along those lines. They will definitely respect your choice!
