Getting engaged is a great reason for you, your friends, and your loved ones to celebrate. Throwing an engagement party celebrates how you and your partner have decided to dedicate their lives to each other through marriage. But some people don’t believe that it’s necessary or that it has its advantages. After all, it just adds up to the expenses and it can be a distraction while you prepare for the actual wedding! But engagement parties can have their advantages. Here are some of them:

It’s Thrown In Your Honour

While an engagement party is an event where you can have fun with your loved ones as you start your journey towards your wedding day, it’s still a party that’s thrown in your honor.

A Time For The Bridesmaids And The Groomsmen To Bond

Before you got engaged, you and your partner might have already had bridesmaids and groomsmen in mind. If there’s a large amount of them, they might not all know each other. Two of your bridesmaids & groomsmen may be your childhood friends while the other two may be your friends back in college. The engagement party is there to help them get to know one another and to form a bond before the actual wedding day. It’s also a fun way for them to form friendships with one another and to solidify existing relationships.

It’s When Both Families Meet

Though your family and your partner’s family might meet on the wedding day or during the planning process, it’s better for both parties to get to know each other better. After all, both families might not have been introduced to one another yet! To make sure that you and your partner’s families are already acquainted during the actual wedding, there should be an engagement party for their first meeting. This will give the wedding day a friendlier vibe between the two families.

You’ll Get To Know The Crowd During Your Wedding

The people that will be attending your engagement party will most likely be the same ones that would be attending the actual wedding. The engagement party serves as a way for you to know the crowd and the other guests, it’s also a way for you to get a sense of the atmosphere on your wedding day. That way, you won’t have to waste a lot of time introducing yourself to your partner’s guests during the wedding and vice versa.
