I run my own wedding planning business, and I thought it may be fun to do a quick 'Q&A' so why not ask your 'wedding related' questions, and I'll do my best to answer them! Weddings are my passion, and as I'm getting ready to start a family, It is something that I would like to continue in a limited capacity.
This is just a fun, lighthearted post, and I hope you find it helpful!
Great Idea I have a question actually, engagement parties. Do they have to be formal? What is really the point? We were just going to have a cook out and some drinks with close family and friends, no one has to make speeches or anything do they lol?
The 'point' of an engagement party is to celebrate the fact that you are engaged! And also to introduce your families, and bridal party to each other. As with all other pre wedding parties/events it is not hosted by the couple, but traditionally either the parents or grandparents throw it.
It does not have to be formal, it really should fit your style, keeping in mind the guest list. There is no mandatory programe, but perhaps a toast to the couple could be given by a close relative who enjoys speaking publicly, in lieu of speeches that drag on and on!
I hope you find this helpful, and have a wonderful time!
