He’s popped the question! Now what? The best way to show off your new piece of jewellery (and your new fiancé too) is to throw a party! Who doesn’t love an engagement party?
Now you’re left with the pressure of finding a venue, inviting everyone, and buying the décor. Don’t let the food be one of these things you have to worry about—call up your favourite catering company. Here’s why it’ll be the smartest decision you make.
You’re Already Stressed
Planning your wedding may be one of the most stressful things you will ever have to do in your life. Sometimes, it might seem like there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Wouldn’t you prefer your engagement party to be smooth sailing so you can focus your attention on other things?
Catering your engagement party will ease you into the wedding planning, showing you that it’s all manageable with a little outside help.
Plus, you won’t be up until midnight the night before baking up a storm. That in itself is worth it!
It’s All about the Aesthetics
Do you want your engagement party to be Instagram worthy? Of course you do! If you’re not a professional cook or baker, you likely won’t be able to make those hors d’oeuvres exactly like you saw on Pinterest. Don’t fear, you can still get those Instagram-worthy foods when you partner with a catering company.
When you have your party catered, you’re ensuring professionals are preparing your food to look exactly as you want it. This is your one chance at an engagement party—why not ensure everything is perfect?
You Can Get the Taste Just Right
We’ve all done it—made a recipe and wondered why you can never make it as well as your favourite restaurant. At your engagement party, you shouldn’t be left with this unfilled void. Having the party catered is the best way to make sure you’re getting top-quality treats all your guests will enjoy.
It Sets Your Engagement off on the Right Foot
One thing about many brides-to-be is that they’re superstitious. It’s hard not to be for your very special day—you want to do everything in your power to make sure everything goes according to plan. The last thing you want to do is start off on the wrong foot.
Avoid all bad karma by giving yourself fewer opportunities to experience disappointment—a caterer is always sure to impress.
There Are So Many Options
The great thing about engagement parties is that they don’t necessarily have to fit with the theme of your wedding. Unless you’ve been pinning wedding posts since you were 13, most people don’t have their weddings planned out when they get engaged. This gives you some wiggle room to have the perfect engagement party.
For the couple looking for a classy engagement party, you can consider having a high-tea party with catered sandwiches.
If you’re looking for a more laid-back and fun party idea, you can try something like a Hawaiian luau party with snacks to match the theme.
Talk to a caterer to see how your party theme can be matched with a variety of different food options that won’t require you to lift a finger!
It Says Something about Who You Are as a Couple
This is your chance to really show your friends and family what you and your partner are like as a couple. Creating an atmosphere that represents who you are sets the tone for your engagement, wedding, and life afterwards. From the décor to the food, everyone should be left with a great impression. What impression do you want your guests to leave with?
