After the yes comes the… engagement! Yes, this is the bride and groom’s first social event before their big wedding day. The engagement party is not mandatory, but it has been increasingly sought after. And if there’s going to be a party, there must also be a well-prepared engagement decoration, right?
So come check out the tips and ideas we’ve put together to help make this day even more special:
Engagement Party Decoration
Every decoration starts by defining the color palette. She will be your guide to everything else, including even the cake and sweets.
For the most romantic couples, the tip is to opt for a palette of soft colors, such as those in pastel tones, which are hot at the moment. Modern, laid-back brides can invest in an original color palette, including unlikely hues like black, gold, green, and blue. The classic and elegant ones can bring a sophisticated color palette, such as marsala, petroleum blue, and good old white.
You can’t think of an engagement party decor without flowers. They can be natural or artificial, such as paper, for example. If you choose the natural ones, choose the most beautiful and cheapest seasonal flowers.
The flowers can be used as table arrangements and centerpieces, in panels on the cake table or for taking pictures, and even as a cake topper.
And speaking of cake, the cake table is another highly anticipated element in an engagement party. Take care of this space, as simple as it is.
The decoration of the engagement cake table can be made with flowers, sweets and also have other decorative elements, such as pictures of the bride and groom, for example.
Guests will love to take home a memento of that special day. So, be sure to prepare the party favors.
One option that always works and is economical is edible party favors. You can buy or make honey bread, cookies, pot cake, sweet jams, macarons, among other delights. Just remember to personalize the packages with the date and name of the bride and groom.
If the engagement party takes place at night, don’t miss the opportunity to make a bright decoration. In addition to being super charming, the lights make the environment more romantic and welcoming.
For this, you can bet on flasher lights that are super popular in party decorations. They can be used hanging in a cascade shape behind the cake table, for example. It is also worth investing in luminous signs, LED letters, among other lighting options.
Types of Engagement Party Decoration
Check out now what are the main decorative styles of the engagement party and how you can make each one of them.
Rustic Engagement Decoration
One of the favorite styles of the bride and groom is rustic. The rustic engagement decoration brings many natural elements, such as flowers, leaves, branches, bricks, and rough wood.
The color palette is generally earthy and warm, such as raw cotton, terracotta, mustard, and burnt pink. Among the themes that go with the rustic decor are Provençal, country, and luau, for example.
Modern Engagement Decoration
Modern engagement decor is often more relaxed and laid-back. Grooms can take advantage of this type of decoration to impress their tastes and personalities. For example, if the couple is adventurous, they can bet on a decor that brings elements that refer to travel. A couple in love with pets, on the other hand, can bring different magic into the focus of their decor.
The same goes for music, cinema, sports, among other themes.
Romantic Engagement Decoration
Romantics, for their part, do not do without flowers, soft colors, candles and candlesticks, hearts, and a fairy tale cake. One of the favorite themes in this type of decoration is Provencal.
Classic Engagement Decoration
The classic engagement appropriates traditional elements as a basis for decoration. White is one of the preferred colors, especially when combined with metallic tones such as gold and rose gold. The well-structured flower arrangements and a table set according to the costumes also fit this proposal.
