 Every couple has a love story of how they met, their first date, how they came to be a couple, and when she said yes. It’s all these tiny, delicious details that make each wedding so unique. Make your engagement party more memorable by letting your guests have a glance at the story of how you fell in love!

This theme allows you to share your most intimate special moments with your loved ones so make it as personal as you want!

Wine Tasting

This is a great idea to save some money on an elegant and virtually effortless engagement party. Invite your guests to bring a couple bottles of wine and create cute “tasting cards” so that each guest can rate each bottle. This gives each guest the opportunity to have a record of which ones they liked best so they can try them again. Start with the whites and move your way up to the heavier reds and serve up different types of cheeses, fruits such as green grapes and apples, meats and crackers and lay them on chalkboard trays labeling each item to have the guests’ pair their drink with a snack. Create a soothing and low-key playlist to set the mood and you have a sophisticated engagement party.

 

Our top favor pick is the Personalized Wine Glass.
