Engagement parties are regarded as the traditional formal announcement of a wedding more frequently celebrated at a restaurant with a typical cocktail party vibe. While tradition can be safe and predictable, we all know the most outstanding ones are remembered because of the unexpected fun had by all!I am not a big fan of themed parties, but when I am, I like to pay very close attention to every detail. That is what makes a party more unique and personal. So be as creative as you want and don’t be afraid to think outside the box! If you’re going for a more casual approach, think of fun and unexpected venues. My favorites are the beach, a rooftop with a killer view, your best friends back yard or even your local brewery!
