15 Stylish Engagement Party Ideas Anyone Can Use

Have you been rocking a new ring that tends to cause spontaneous uproars? Getting engaged is a huge deal and deserves all the celebrating in the world. And while the occasional girls’ brunch to dish out all the exciting plans for the wedding totally counts as a celebration, you and the fiancé want something a bit more official. Spend a day soaking up the love from your friends and family with an official engagement celebration. Engagement parties are a great time to have the two sides of the family mingle casually before the big day (and before all the big planning commences). Additionally, they’re great opportunities to introduce your love story to your future wedding guests. But most importantly, your engagement party is the perfect time to sit back, sip some bubbly and enjoy the heck out of this gloriously love-filled time in your lives. The wedding planning is about to begin and with it some stress may ensue, take this time to chill out and get yourselves ready for a ride of a lifetime!woman-showing-engagement-ring-to-her-friends-picture-id538052556 (1)

The age old question — should you send a thank you card? Better yet, should you send a holiday thank you card? The holidays have come and gone and we’re left standing in the cold holiday-less dust.

Bringing us back to the question at the heart of this post — should you send a holiday thank you card? And something tells us you probably already know the answer.
