Fun Engagement Party Trend #1: Fiancee Food and Drinks
For a yummy treat and a way to involve your friends and family in the wedding, consider offering a matrimonial-themed dessert. Provide a dessert table full of a wide variety of different flavors of mini wedding cakes! Set up a voting station by providing guests with small sheets of paper where they can write their favorite flavor, and jars or bowls in front of the cakes. The most popular cake can be your wedding cake choice on the big day! Guests will feel involved and the taste testing is so much fun.
Another fun cake idea for your fabulous engagement party is a spin on the classic wedding dessert—a fancy fruit and cheese cake! Creating this luxurious and tasteful treat is easy. All you need is three wheels of cheese (you choose the verities) each smaller than the last, and some fruit to top the cake. Supply crackers, roasted nuts, and various spreads and jellies such as fig preserves for your guests to top their cheese cake slices. This treat is especially perfect if your engagement party is in a rustic venue, such as a farm
Another fun food and drink idea? Set out wine bottles and metallic sharpies for your family and friends to write you well wishes! You can open the bottles at your party, enjoy them with your guests and save the empty bottles for décor for your future home. Another option would be saving them and opening them on a special anniversary!
Fun Engagement Party Trend #2: Involve Your Guests!
One of the most overlooked aspects of engagement etiquette is making sure your guests don’t feel left out. Here are some tips on how to make sure you do that while still enjoying your moment. As guests start arriving, personally hand out a fun, delicious honorary “engagement” ring pop to everyone! These sweet treats can include handmade tags
hanging onto them with you and your hubby’s initials or your selected wedding date if you already set a date! Make sure your family and friends never have to search for a drink. Hand out personal mini champagne bottles complete with patterned straws in your favorite color to make each guest feel special.
When it comes to party favors, there’s no better time to keep to the “he put a ring on it” theme! Hand out souvenir bling with homemade thank you tags! Use life-like cubic zirconia rings for guests to wear, or fun over-sized diamond party favors like the ones here
. For a fun twist on the tag attached to these favors, buy some ribbons with wedding phrases on them (example: “with love,” “forever and always,” or Mr. & Mrs.”), and cut and tie these onto the rings for a gorgeous finish.
