When your partner whom you love and care about more than anything has just proposed, there is no happier moment. Getting engaged is literally one of the most exciting and joyful moments in the world! That is why engagement parties are also so much fun: it’s your chance to share this new and exciting time in your life with your family and friends! Usually, an engagement party hits that sweet spot where you are still blissfully engaged, but haven’t turned into crazed wedding planner just yet!
So then comes the important question: what should you wear to your engagement party? There are so many fun dress choices that it can be hard to chose, so I am going to show you some gorgeous style options and you can find the right one for you!
The other thing I would recommend (once you find a dress style you like) is check out Rent the Runway. There you can rent gorgeous designer dresses from anywhere as low as $40! This way you can wear the couture dress you want to without dishing out the big bucks (the catch though, is you do have to return it).

You and your fiancé have painstakingly worked through the seating chart making sure that all your guests have been strategically placed near the dance floor or near family, but have you thought about how they will find their seats? With unique escort cards, of course!
First things first, is there a difference between escort cards and place cards? The answer is yes!! The difference being a place card states exactly where the guest should be seated. Usually a very formal affair, plated dinner or small intimate wedding will call for place cards, but an escort card is always needed because this directs the guest to their seats.
Consider using one of these unique escort card ideas as another opportunity for you to incorporate your theme, and add a little more flare and charm to the wedding.
