The engagement party is a lovely way to announce an engagement. Usually close friends and relatives will be aware that an announcement is in the offing, and when they receive an invitation, they will not be too surprised. Your parents or other close relatives usually give the engagement party. It may be announced as parties “honoring our daughter and her fiancé”, or your parents may simple invite everyone to a party. Midway trough the party, by way of breaking the news, your father can propose a toast to you and your fiancé. The groom’s family and yours and close friends of both should be invited to the engagement party, which can be as a simple or as elaborate as your parents wish.
Formal announcement of an engagement is usually made through a newspaper where you and your fiancé live and in both sets of parents’ hometown newspaper. Your parents issue the announcements in their names. If you prefer informal announcement, close relatives should be informed by note or phone, as should friends.
Once the word is out, you can wear your engagement ring. It is a gift from your fiancé. Many women prefer not to have an engagement ring, but if you want one, and your fiancé can afford it, by all means you should have one. The ring need not to be the traditional diamond; any stone is appropriate as long as it is one you like and will cherish for many years to come. Also, when you select an engagement ring, keep in mind the kind of wedding ring you will want, since they are both worn together.
The engagement party may be a formal dinning or casual party, buffet style or sit down dinner, and the menu may be a selection of lamb, pork, lobster, caviar, imported cheeses, vegetables and a selection of patisserie. The decoration, linen and flowers can be a simple or elaborate and it will depend on your traditions and wishes.
