Congrats on your engagement! Now it’s time to start planning.

Congratulations on your engagement! Your wedding is sure to be an event that no one will want to miss. Throwing an engagement party is a great way to kick off the journey to your big day, while also celebrating the big news with family and friends. Planning an engagement party can be a difficult task, so the team at Raptor Productions has created this simple party planning checklist to get you started.

Create a Guest List

Crafting a guest list is an important part of planning any party. When creating the guest list, there are a few factors you need to take into consideration. For example, whoever you invite to the engagement party should also be someone you are also planning on inviting to your wedding. The people on your guest list will also factor into other decisions, like the caterer you choose, the date you hold the engagement party, what food the caterer will serve, and maybe even what music you have the DJ play during the party.

Find a Venue

Picking out a venue is one task you will want to check off early for your engagement party. Depending on where you are looking to hold your engagement party, you will want to book a venue sooner than later because the more popular venues will be booked in advance. Picking out a venue can also be tough depending on the date of your engagement party, you might also run into difficulties securing a venue, especially if it falls on the weekend or a holiday. Plus, the quicker you pick out a venue, the quicker you can celebrate your engagement!

Hire a DJ

If you want to set the mood for your engagement and ensure that everyone is having a fun time, hiring a DJ is an absolute must. The best DJ’s know how to read a crowd, so they will know exactly what your engagement party needs. Whether it be songs to dance to, songs everyone can enjoy listening to while they talk, or a crowd favorite that will get everyone singing, everyone will have a blast with a DJ around. Hiring a DJ will practically guarantee that your engagement party will be an event that no one will soon forget.
