First and Foremost, Figure Out an Affordable Budget 

Before planning an engagement event, it is extremely beneficial to set a budget. In fact, this should be your top priority before you start planning the details of your engagement party. 

The number one rule of budgets is that they need to be realistic. You want to make sure you are planning a party that you can afford to throw. 

The best way to start figuring out your budget is by making a list of everything you expect to pay for in regards to your engagement party. For example, one of these aspects is the venue. Another element to incorporate into your budget is the invitations, as well as decorations.

How much do you feel comfortable spending on invitations? Can you afford all of the decorations that you have in mind, or do you need to scale back ever so slightly? A budget will help you address these questions. 

Select How Formal You Want Your Engagement Party to Be 

Thinking about the type of engagement party you want to throw can help you figure out the more intricate details of your upcoming celebration. This will help you set a theme and know exactly what you want your space to look like (and what attire people should wear).

Write Down Everyone You Plan to Invite to the Party

A party isn’t the same without friends and family there with you, so the guest list is an important part of planning an engagement party! When it comes to selecting who you’d like to have in attendance at your spouse-to-be celebration, think of the people who are closest to your heart.

Brainstorming people who mean the world to you usually isn’t the hard part, by any means. It tends to be more difficult to keep your list of guests at a reasonable length. Figure out how many friends and family members you want to limit your party to, and then make sure you don’t invite too many people. 

Decide on a Location to Host Your Engagement Party 

Location is everything, as they say, and this phrase holds true for engagement parties, too! It’s so important to take your time and not settle on the first venue you tour.

One of the best locations for hosting an engagement party is none other than Grand Salon! As an event hosting company, Grand Salon knows all there is to know about executing the perfect event, and celebrating engagements is one of many types of parties that Grand Salon knows how to host. 

Reach Out to Professionals to Make Your Party Memorable

From caterers to decorators to entertainment, hiring professionals will not only make your event one to remember, but it will also save you the headache of having to do everything yourself. 

Professionals have years of experience when it comes to producing events like these, so they’ll be able to efficiently make your party come together. Think about your budget and decide what kinds of professional services would be right for your engagement party. Read more to take a look at the 24 professional vendors that we work with!
