We’ve all been to those weddings where no one knows one another and you kind of feel like you’re at your boyfriend’s holiday office party. And then there’s that other kind of wedding. The wedding that has that special something that transforms it into a bash of celebration. Groom’s side, Bride’s side – none of that matters. It’s everybody’s side! Everyone is there to get down, get groovy and commemorate the happy couple’s nuptials.
One way to add this magical je ne sais quoi is by throwing an engagement party. Not only does it allow people who love the couple to get to know one another, but it also gives people the chance to feeler closer to the event, thus adding that intangible unique element. But who throws the party and what tone should it set?
An engagement party can be thrown by a group of friends, family members, even colleagues at work. It’s appropriate to run your idea past the bride and groom just in case someone else is already claiming the honor, although some couples enjoy multiple parties – I know I do! By asking the bride and groom, you can also get an idea for invitees. Is this a work-friend-only party? A college reunion gathering? Or maybe just kissing cousins for those with huge families. There is no wrong way to throw an engagement party, but stay clear of inviting anyone the bride or groom might not want at their wedding.
And finally, if your Bride and Groom are that sublime, streamlined, ‘we love architecture and cutting-edge technology’ couple try Mixbook’s Bold Mod Typography or Mr. & Mrs. Party invitations. From a penthouse space with a view to a garden at the Getty Villa, these looks set the tone for something magnificent.
