Q&A: When should we have an engagement party?


A new wedding client had a question about their engagement party:

Q:  When should my fiance and I have an engagement party?  Our wedding date is in December 2015.  We don’t want to have it too early or too late.  We’re a little unsure of the timing.

A:  Traditionally, the engagement party is 9 to 12 months before the wedding date.  I would say having the party between November and March would be ideal.   Having an engagement party is a great way to celebrate your engagement and the next step in your lives!  It also serves as the perfect opportunity for the two families, wedding party, and key people in your lives to meet.  At the end of the evening, send your guests home with save-the-date party favors such as cards, magnets, etc.
