Holding a sizeable lavish engagement party may not be possible due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fortunately, you can create a memorable event on a budget. Statistics indicate that more UK couples are getting engaged for a more extended period than a decade ago. Moreover, unique engagement rings have become an absolute must-have to show your guests during the party. If you’re game with this idea, you can find out how to pull this off like a pro. That said, here are simple engagement parties to try on a budget.
Since it’s Covid season, you may want to consider a virtual engagement event to involve friends and family easily. The trick to holding a successful virtual engagement party is to break your online guests into manageable groups. This way, you get to spend time and focus more on the finer details with each group. Moreover, plan an online trivia game to make the virtual event more exciting for your guests. After your event, you can send out little gift boxes to your guests who showed up online.
Keep your guest list small
You can hold a memorable engagement party with minimal guests. First, you need to find out what the government’s Covid protocols are in place and follow them accordingly. On the other hand, a small guest list allows you and your partner to have a more intimate gathering with the people you love. Remember that the engagement party is traditionally an opportunity for families and close friends of both partners to meet before the actual wedding. Moreover, a small guest list automatically means you wouldn’t have to spend much as you would have for a large gathering.
Host at home
This is practical if you have space at home. For example, you can leverage your backyard, garden or even your patio, as long as you keep the numbers down. Making use of your home space is more economical than renting a hall or hotel service. If you don’t have space, you can speak with your families or close friends who might be willing to grant you their open space for your small engagement party. If your engagement is planned for later in the winter, a cosy living room with a fireplace will be ideal.
Your décor is to lighten up the place a bit to give it a more party look. However, you have an option not to use any décor at all. On the other hand, if you still want it, a simple string light across the room or hanging overhead in your garden can make all the difference. Décor lighting should come into the picture if the engagement party is at night or in a poorly lit space. Moreover, balloons will never go out of style as long as you choose the right ones. For example, helium balloons with specific prints can add to the vibe as well.
Engagement parties provide couples with precious memories, making it imperative to plan effectively. Hopefully, you’ll consider these ideas to create a memorable event.
