An engagement is an exciting time of celebrating a couple’s formal commitment to one another in marriage. The period between proposal and marriage is the perfect time for an engagement party. Traditionally, the bride’s parents host the engagement party, but today many modern couples host their own celebration for future wedding guests to get to know one another. It’s a nice gesture to bring an engagement gift to any engagement party you are invited to.
Engagement gifts are usually smaller items for the couple to enjoy before the wedding. What is the right gift to bring to an engagement party? An engagement gift that reflects the couple is meaningful and celebrates their upcoming union. For example, the 1st date of the happy couple was at a movie theater; design a gift with a movie theme and include that DVD, movie theater candy, movie passes, and happily ever after sign. Great gifts can be creative and budget friendly.
Our friends got invited to an Engagement party hosted by the parents of the bride. The friends had known the groom since childhood, and were having a hard time figuring out what was a great gift to bring to the Engagement Party. When asking a few questions about the groom, the friends mentioned that they spent time together growing up watching the Texas Rangers play. When asking questions about the engaged couple, the friends mentioned that the couple shared a mutual passion for the Texas Rangers.
So a customized Texas Rangers Gift Basket was designed with the couples favorite snacks, official Major League Baseball decals, hardball, and two Texas Ranger tickets. The friends loved the idea and the engaged couple loved the gift.
Engagement photos are increasingly popular options for couples who are eager to announce their proposal to their family and friends. Many couples choose to post photos of the magic moment of asking “Will You Marry Me” on social media. Use that photo announcement, in a fabulous picture frame; with a tied knot which is symbolic of true love. Include two champagne glasses to toast the happy couple. Once the holidays roll around, they’ll reserve a special spot on their tree for memorable engagement ornament. This is a perfect and thoughtful gift for an Engagement Party.
They’re tying the knot! Say congrats with items that are super useful for wedding planning. The above Engagement Gift Basket is a joint gift from the bridesmaids. The gift was designed to celebrate their engagement and guides to help plan for the wedding. The gift contained the Knot magazine, the Knot Planning Guide, Groomology, Country Wedding Songs, Engagement Thank You notes, heart wine stopper, couples favorite photo framed, cute planning post-its, silver heart ornament, Engagement wine glass, and love bird stamp. The gift was designed with the bride-to-be favorite colors.
An engagement party is a great opportunity to pick gifts that are unique and unexpected. Engagement parties are usually mixed gender events of close friends and family members. It is appropriate for a group of friends to split the cost of an engagement gift. Make sure that everyone signs the card accompanied with the gift. The best gifts are creative and reflect the personality of the person receiving the gift.
