Throwing an engagement party isn’t anything new. Many brides-to-be plan this type of party – especially if they aren’t getting married for more than a year. Find out how you can throw an engagement party
that will be hard to beat when it comes time for your wedding.

Choose a Theme

There are thousands of themes for sale that you can use for an engagement party. Since it’s a celebration of love, the theme should include some romance. Some people just choose their favorite colors and use decorations that many people use for their wedding, while other people choose a fun, non-wedding theme, such as sports or floral.

Choose the Setting

You can have an engagement party at a banquet hall or somewhere smaller such as a reception hall at a community center or church. The location you choose has more to do with the number of people you are inviting than it does on the setting. Of course, if you wanted an outdoor setting, you can simply choose one without worry how many people come to the party since outside has no boundaries.

Hire a DJ and Select Music

An engagement party often has dancing. So, hiring a good party DJ in San Antonio is a great choice to ensure the success of your event. You can review the songs he has available and select romantic ones as well as popular songs played at other types of parties. Mix it up, so you have love songs couples can dance to, fast songs for the single people and groups of friends, and then group dancing songs such as the Cha Cha Slide, Macarena, or Electric Slide.

Arrange Catering for Delicious Food

People come to parties to pay tribute to the guests of honor, but also to have a good time dancing and eating. If you want to hire a caterer, be sure to test out a few of them before you decide on one – just like you
would do for your wedding. If you like the caterer you choose, you may just have one for your wedding too.

Play Games

Guests love to tease the engaged couple. Have the San Antonio wedding DJ announce the games and explain them to the
guests. Some of the games you can play are:

  • Newlyweds-to-be Game

Just because you aren’t married yet doesn’t mean you don’t know each other well. Have the guests ask you and your fiancé questions. You and your fiancé must write down what you would answer and then what your fiancé would answer. You and your fiancé should not be able to see what you are writing. After the questions have been asked, compare answers to see how many you and your fiancé answered the same.

  • Karaoke

Have the DJ play some songs your guests can sing to and hang the microphone over to them. They will have a great time trying to sing the best they can and stay with the tempo.

  • Ice Cube Diamond

Give everyone an ice cube. Each person’s job is to carve out a diamond shape as best as possible. You can make it even more difficult by making everyone carve the same shape of your engagement ring.

Just Have a Good Time

Now that you know how to throw a great engagement party, start planning today. It’s a special time in your life, and you have the right to celebrate it with a party. So, have fun, and just think the next time you have a huge party like this will be when you’re married.
