You're Invited GraphicDid you recently decide to get engaged? If so, you’re likely going through a whirlwind of thoughts and emotions about the future. With a wedding to plan on your horizon, you can’t neglect the more immediate tasks in front of you. Namely, you need to decide whether you’d like to have an engagement party. For many, having a gathering for the engagement is an early way to celebrate the coming union. While not as involved as the wedding itself, a good amount of planning still goes into this type of party. For example, you’ll need to pick invitations.

With so many other decisions to make over the coming months, the look of your engagement party invites might not be at the top of your list. However, feel inspired without much of an effort and consider these approaches.

Flowers Are Always Trendy

Trends change with the blink of an eye. If you want to make the invites for your event look stylistically “modern,” visiting a site like Pinterest can offer you a bit of insight on the latest style trends being touted by designers and influencers. However, it is usually easiest to opt for a timeless look with your invites. The best way to achieve this is with some type of floral design. Flowers are forever associated with romance and weddings, meaning you can’t go wrong with picking this theme. 

There are plenty of ways to customize this design to meet your own tastes. If you’re having your event in the summertime, consider using bright colors and imagery that invoke the bounty of the season. Similarly, a winter wedding can offer the chance for delicate petals amidst a snowy, white backdrop. You don’t need to waste a lot of time on this decision; simply find a flowery style you enjoy and get started.

A Touch of Elegance

Flowers might be timeless in a general way, but not all events will match this mood. For couples who are looking to host a more elegant engagement affair, the invitations should definitely reflect this tone. You can do this in a number of ways, but the images and style of font you select will play a big part in how guests receive the information. You can opt for a black background with text that shines through in white, silver, or gold. An invitation made of neutral tones can also be useful to convey the specific atmosphere you’re cultivating.

Keep in mind that a card that makes an engagement party look fancy will have friends and family assuming that they need to dress up for the occasion. Be sure to note this info in the invites if it is a requirement. This approach is perfect if your engagement is going to be styled like a cocktail hour or contain a champagne toast, as these are little embellishments that can turn a simple gathering into a more involved party.

Digital and Casual Options

In the age of information, communicating through digital mediums is the norm. While you might want nice paper invites for the wedding itself, feel free to explore online invitations for your engagement party. A digital design can be as casual or formal as you’d like, but it will save money and help you get a more direct reply from those you’ve invited. Couples with smaller social circles can also feel free to use word-of-mouth for the event. Send a text or call those closest to you, note the guests who can make it, and save yourself a few headaches.

Though there are many tasks to concern yourself with when it comes to getting engaged, taking it one day at a time will help immensely. As a first step and practice round for the main event down the line, explore all of your options for engagement party invitations.
