As your best friend gets engaged, you know that it’s time to spring into action. You want to make sure she feels happy and supported through the planning process; however, you also want to keep her on her toes! If you don’t want to choose just one idea for a party, here are the 7 awesome party engagement party ideas for your best friend.
1. DIY Engagement Party
Being able to host an engagement party of your own is a great way to make the day extra special for the happy couple. Not only can you help coordinate your best friend’s big day, you can offer simple DIY tips and tricks to give her some options for her party. Ease your friend into planning with a low-key engagement party (so as not to overwhelm her) that lasts throughout the day. You’ll also be able to have fun with the planning process and help her get excited about her big day.
2. Mint-Filled Popcorn for Your Best Friend’s Party
Minted popcorn is a fun, easy snack that everyone loves. Plus, it’s a great way to bring in the holiday season as well! You can also add in some non-food decorations, like mini pine trees or candy canes. Be creative and have fun with it!
3. Crystal Balloon Bouquet and DIY Photo Booth
This is such a cute idea and it looks great, too! You can fill a balloon with air, or fit them all on little sticks. Either way, they’re super easy to make! If you have a friend who loves the color purple, you could even add some blue balloons and use another color for the background. Save time by using a spray bottle and your favorite crackers for this activity. There’s so much to make in such a short period of time!
No party is complete without having a photo booth, and they are some of the most fun party ideas out there! You can set up the booth in advance, or you can set it up with your friend at the party itself. You can get a great deal on props and have fun taking fun photos that you can share online later. Talk to your friend about what kind of photos she’d like to capture for her special day.
4. Hand Made Wedding Place Cards
One of the best ways of making your friend’s wedding feel special is taking time and help make the wedding place cards. Even if you can’t make them all, do what you can. With a little thought and some creativity, you can create something that she will love and appreciate. You can even add in pictures of the happy couple which will make wedding place cards even more special to her.
5. DIY Wedding Pinata
If you’re feeling really ambitious, you can make your own wedding pinata. Show up at the party with your creative skills and everyone will have a blast tearing it apart! You also get to take some time to spend with your friend on her special day. For best results, don’t just make the pinata’s face look like your best friend’s wedding. Instead, create something that looks fun and unique. Lots of people will love getting to play and celebrating her big day with you!
This is a fun and interactive way to get friends involved with the wedding planning process. Pinatas are great for parties because they include everyone, get people talking and ordinarily they are made according to the theme of the day. Start by asking your bride to be what she would like in her pinata, the best advice is not to go too crazy as there is a limit on what can be put inside! You might want to make sure it includes confetti, party favors, candy and little gifts for her and her hubby.
6. Help Design And Print Engagement Party Invitations For Your Friend’s Wedding
If you have some design skills and can create some amazing invitations for your friend’s wedding, she’ll love you forever. Pick a design that is unique to the couple or theme their wedding with a pop of color. Your friend will love seeing the reaction of each and every guest when they see her hand-designed engagement party invitations.
The best way to get started is to create a few ideas that you like. You can start with simple cards, or you can get a little more experimental and design something that’s actually fun and bohemian. First thing’s first, you’ll want to spend some time choosing color schemes for your invitations and you might equally invite the couple to help through.
You can also get some help with this. Talk to your friend about what hues of blue, purple and green they’re looking for and try to pull out at least one that you think they’ll think is perfect. You can also play around with different fonts, or even add type to the party invitation itself such as a poem or song lyrics. Once you’ve gotten some ideas down, you can start thinking about how you want things to look on paper.
