To the Happy Couple
Once you're engaged you are going to want to shout it from the rooftops, and a great way to get the word out is to have an engagement party. You can throw one for yourselves, but it's probably a better idea to have your parents, his parents or friends throw a party for you. The party can be as formal as you want it to be. Remember, it's up to you and your fiancé to decide how you want to celebrate.
Be careful who you choose to invite to the party. I highly recommend that your wedding guest list include the names on the engagmeent party list, especially if you're getting married in the same town or close by. You risk the chance of offending guests not invited to the wedding. They may think that they were only invited to the engagement party for their gifts.
The engagement party invitation featured above was designed by Snow & Graham, and is available at Luxe Paperie.
