Planning an Engagement Party

Posted by on Dec 12, 2012 in Avon Belle Terrace, Bridal, Parties, Planning, Venues, Weddings | 0 comments

Tis the season

Along with Hanukkah and Christmas parties and celebrations the holiday season is also known for wedding engagements. Many couples find this magical time of year to be the perfect launch for a wedding and it’s no wonder so many rings are sold during the month of December. If you’ve decided to announce your engagement this holiday season now is a good time to start thinking about planning the engagement party.

Engagement parties are often small affairs for immediate family and a few friends so you will probably want to look for an event venue that has private rooms. You’ll want to save the grand ballrooms for wedding receptions and look for smaller, more intimate rooms that will allow you plenty of quality time with the ones you love. Your list will be short for the engagement party but the sooner you start on it the better you can fine tune it and get it right.

When you do reserve a private room at a Connecticut banquet facility you will want to discuss the ambiance with the venue manager so you get the right lighting, bottle service and music to make for a fine evening with your spouse to be and friends. This occasion is a fun party that is low-key and with a private party room you’ll be able to kick your wedding off right.
