An Engagement Party Checklist You Need to Read

First of all, congratulations on the news!  Secondly, when’s the party?

Since you’ve announced your new status as a FIANCE to your family, told your group of friends the news, and uploaded the obligatory photo of that all-important glistening rock on the finger #shesaidyes, it just makes sense to celebrate properly and start looking into event venue hire in Melbourne.

Although many happy couples choose to miss out the engagement party, we’re all for celebrating with loved ones, champagne and delicious canapes.

Here at Baroq House, we’ve got you covered for every occasion. Keep reading for our engagement party checklist – it’s time to get your favourite party wear dry cleaned for your second best, big day.

After all, you’ve found true love – and that’s something to celebrate more than once!

Do: Decide Who’s Invited

We’re pretty sure that you adore all (well, most!) of your family and friends, so your engagement party is the perfect time to get them all in one place and celebrate your love! Although wedding invitations might not be extended to everyone due to budget limitations, an engagement is perfect time to invite those that may not be a part of the big day.

Don’t: Send out invitations too late

Remember that people live busy lives, so send your engagement party invitations out as soon as you know the date. This gives your favourite people advanced notice to arrange transport, babysitting or travel plans, and no one is left disappointed.

Do: Send out Something Quirky

To ensure that you reach everyone, think about creating a social media event page as well as traditional paper invites. Keep it quirky and original – there are plenty of websites online that allow you to design your own fun and modern engagement invites that don’t feature any cringe worthy poems!   

Don’t: Leave Venue Hunting Last-Minute

When it comes to event venue hire, Melbourne offers some of the dreamiest locations in Australia. Perfect for occasions of any size or kind, there’s something for everyone. Your choice of venue will need to fit your theme and size of your engagement party – from an intimate affair in your parent’s garden to huge evening party in a nightclub, choose a venue that represents you as a couple. If you want to host your engagement party in one of Melbourne’s most glamorous settings, then Baroq House is the location for you. Both luxurious and inviting, rent out the whole venue or a private area depending on the size of your guestlist.

Do: Work with an Events Planner

We’ve all been there – going it alone when trying to organise an event as important as an engagement party can be stressful. That’s why you should enlist the help of an event planner when it comes to planning an occasion at one of the most premium function venues in Melbourne. An event planner can help you plan out the whole evening, from catering to drinks, live entertainment and more! That way all you need to do is worry about having a good time with everyone that you love.

If you’re throwing an engagement party in Melbourne, contact an events planner at Baroq House to find out exactly what we can offer you. From function packages to creative advice, we’ve got you covered.

Our expertise doesn’t stop at engagement parties though! From end of financial year party ideas to throwing a Jewish bar mitzvah party, we’ve got the experience and the know-how to make your special occasion one to remember.
