How to Organise the Perfect Engagement Party in Australia

Engagement Party in Australia

If you are pledging the rest of your life to your soulmate, you probably want the whole world to know; you and your bride-to-be obviously want to invite family and friends to a celebration party and with that in mind, here are a few top tips for event planning.

  • Choosing a party venue – The best engagement party venues Sutherland Shire has to offer are available for hire and by choosing such an establishment, you have everything you need at your fingertips; a great bar, dance floor and the best DJ will ensure the party rocks on until the early hours.
  • Music makes a party – Some people prefer a live band, while others would rather hire a local DJ; the choice is yours. If you choose a DJ, you can create your own playlists and invite guests to do the same. 
  • Games liven up a party – The Internet hosts a wealth of information on suitable party games; spend an hour trawling the web and you’ll end up with some great ideas on how to make your engagement party like no other. People love to be competitive and you can plan a few surprises! Click here for ideas on arranging a memorable Mother’s Day celebration.
  • Sending out invites – Of course, email is the best way to send out party invitations; make sure all the information guests will need is included; venue directions, dress code (if any) and any other info you think might be important. If you need confirmation of attendance, make sure this is clear.
  • Overnight stays – If you are planning a boozy affair that goes on until the early hours, you should find a local inn or resort so that you can offer an alternative to driving home. This is the responsible thing to do; it is oh so easy to find yourself in a position where you are tempted to drive under the influence.
  • Check for event permits – The last thing you want is for the police to turn up and ask if you have a permit to host the event. If you are using an established venue, you won’t have to worry about permits, otherwise, you should check with the NSW government. Outdoor events are certain to require a permit and if alcohol is consumed, you will need a licence for that.
  • Hire a photographer – Why not hire a local photographer to record the evening? This will give you many images that you can treasure in years to come, plus you can send all guests a link to your online storage so they can download the ones they like.

Getting engaged is a once-in-a-lifetime event and we hope your party is one that is remembered for all the right reasons. Sit down with your partner and come up with a guest list, then start looking at potential venues and get things moving.
