Planning the Engagement Party
Engagement parties are not necessary, but honestly, why not? It’s an excuse to share your joy and excitement!
Often times, the thought of planning one.more.thing is just too much. Sure, it’s early – you just got engaged and probably haven’t even begun discussing the wedding. Don’t fret. Let your friends or close family members plan an engagement party for you, and take the pressure off you and your fiancé. After all, you have a winery wedding to play, right?
I happen to have an overachieving friend who enjoys planning and putting things together. The second she hears “I’m engaged!” she pulls out her spreadsheet and logs in to her Pintrest page. Luckily, she’s already married so she can plan with experience. And the fact that she actually enjoys this stuff makes it fun for even the worst of planners.
If you have a friend or family member you can trust, delegate away so you can enjoy yourself (and each other) at this special party. Whether it’s at a restaurant or in your backyard, let someone else fuss over you just this once.
