Your engagement party should be the celebration to end all celebrations. You’ve met and decided to marry the person of your dreams, so you want to have the most memorable event ever. It’s all too easy to be so caught up in the excitement of the announcement itself that you barely have time to think about your function room hire and so on. However, you want to enjoy an amazing evening so it’s crucial to hold your party in a venue that ticks all the boxes. So, what do you need to keep in mind?
There are so many function venues Perth-wide that it can be difficult to know where to begin to choose the right one. The main idea to bear in mind is that you need the location to be as convenient as possible for your guests. It can be a bit of an issue to get this right if you’ve family and friends all over the place. Under these circumstances, perhaps think about holding your celebration in a venue that has accommodation just in case.
Guest List Size
It’s customary for everyone who is attending your engagement party to also be a guest at your wedding. However, if you’ve not even thought about your wedding guest list, it might be better to only invite family and close friends to your engagement.
If you have already set a date for the big day, it’s often budget-friendly to book the same venue for both your engagement and wedding celebrations. Some places may even offer you a good deal or a discount if you book everything at once. Alternatively, you could simply book a lovely restaurant with bar and accommodation options to hold a low-key intimate party. What matters is that your celebration is right for you.
