If you have engagement and wedding parties in your near future, will they come off without a hitch?
Although you are not a fortune teller, you’d like to think that two of the biggest events in your lives will be fun.
Starting with the engagement party, there are many questions to answer. Among them:
· Which individuals do you invite?
· Where do you host the party?
· How much money should go for on entertainment (if any)?
· Should you go with an open bar?
· Will you have the event catered?
As you can see, there is plenty to keep you thinking when it comes to your engagement party.
Keep in mind that the reason you’re having this party in the first place is the love you have for one another.
When he went engagement ring shopping, he showed you how committed he was to the relationship.
In selecting the perfect ring with diamond shapes, he told you he wanted you to be with him for the rest of your life. When you said yes, you solidified the relationship.
Now that it is time to celebrate with a party, make it as stress-free as possible.
The last thing you want with an engagement party is stress. If necessary, have family and close friends help you with the planning. In doing so, they take some of the pressure off of you and your significant other.
At the end of the day, the engagement party is the first big chance for those closest to you to say congratulations.
Will Your Wedding Party Rock It?
As the days draw closer to you and your significant other tying the knot, will your plans come off without a hitch?
For many couples taking that next big step, planning the wedding day reception is a challenge.
On the one hand, the ceremony pretty much runs itself. Whether you have it in a church, family member’s house, even at the beach, you can plan it all out. Other than words from the person who conducts the ceremony, there is not much for you both to do other than be happy.
When it comes to the wedding party, be sure to cover all your bases well in advance.
Among the key areas:
· How many people to invite?
· Should it take place at a restaurant with banquet facilities or a hotel?
· Do you want a master of ceremonies? If so, it oftentimes will be a close family member.
· For entertainment, should it be a DJ or a band?
· How many choices should be on the menu for the main meal?
· Is an open bar a good idea?
As you will see, there are a myriad of decisions to make.
So you do not feel pressured into making many decisions, don’t hesitate to call on close family and friends.
Of most importance, be sure this day is a celebration and not a headache.
Remember, this is a day you want to look back on with a lot of happiness and pride.
