Yay, you’re engaged! Now what?! For starters, there’s a party to plan!
If someone is throwing you and your partner an engagement party, the fun begins with a proper invitation.
Engagement Party Invitations: Casual or Formal?
Engagement party invitations can be fun and casual, or more formal and elegant, typically depending on how the host wishes to throw the party and what your wedding will be like. Why? That’s easy: you wouldn’t want to throw a fabulous engagement party that upstages the formality of the wedding itself. :)
Engagement party invitations are simple and easy to do, with just a few lines: the names of the couple, the wording ‘engagement party’, the date, venue, time, and a place to RSVP. This can be done with a QR code rsvp card or as easy as a phone number to call, text, or an email address.
Since it is not customary for guests to bring a gift to an engagement party — although they can, if they desire — you will not include any registry information on the invitation. You can, however, include a link to the couple’s wedding website which can, in turn, provide a link to the gift registry.
One big trend for 2023 when it comes to engagement party stationery is personalization! And what better way to personalize a card than with a photo of the couple? Thanks to this recent question from bride-to-be, Mary, we’re tackling the topic of engagement party invitations with photos on them so you know where to find the best ones.
“Hi Emmaline! I’m newly engaged and my mom is planning an engagement party for me and my fiancé. We are looking at invitations together and I’d like to include our engagement pictures on them. Do you know where to buy engagement party invitations with photo spaces that look nice? I appreciate your help!”
How exciting, Mary! Best wishes as you plan your wedding. Engagement party invites are so much more fun when you put your faces on them — I 100% agree!
And as you point out, your invites are a great place to use the lovely engagement photos you recently took!
