Trending Themes for Your Engagement Party

The Transcontinental Hotel | Events

Now that you have a beautiful love to tie the knot with, it’s time for you to plan your engagement party! Your engagement party should be one for the books. After all, it is the last party that you will ever throw as a single woman. It should be memorable, fun and your guests should have an absolute blast, but most of all reflect the love and happiness you’re undoubtedly feeling. Below are some of the trending themes for your engagement party.

The retro themed party

Of course, the word retro can mean many things. You can have a 90s, 80s, 70s, 60s or even pre-war themed parties. Retro parties are always fun because it allows guests to revisit bygone eras or experience things that they have seen only from old movies and television shows or have heard from their parents and grandparents. If you and your partner have shared interests from an era gone by, this can be a great way to reflect your relationship and celebrate!

The romantic themed party

Romantic themed parties are a favourite for many brides. After all, they are about to embark on the most romantic chapter in their lives. Romantic themed parties are also a hit among single women who are hopeful that their turn to throw an engagement party will come soon.

When throwing romantic themed party, you must get the mood right. This could mean, using pastel colours and tulle and organza for the table drapes, chairs, railings and the ceiling. Of course, nothing spells romance more than flowers, particularly roses.

Don’t forget to scatter rose petals everywhere from the floor to the tables. The venue must be well lit of course, but it wouldn’t hurt if you will place candles on each table. For the music, choose romantic tunes that will fill the air with love.

The Hawaiian Luau Themed Party

Maybe you didn’t get engaged in Hawaii, or maybe it is just a dream for you to get married or spend your honeymoon there. But you can always have a Hawaiian themed party wherever you are on the planet.
Contrary to what you might think, you can have a Hawaiian themed party both for indoor and outdoor venues. This kind of party is perfect for those who are wishing for some sun and sand. Plus, wouldn’t it be fun to have all the groomsmen in Hawaiian shirt and all the bridesmaids in grass skirts?

Bespoke Theme

As the celebration is about the love of you and your partner, why not create a theme that totally reflects your individual relationship. Find out what you both enjoy the most together and let your party become a canvas!

Choosing the Right Function Venue for your Christmas Party

In charge of planning your Christmas Party? This can be quite a challenging and daunting task, especially as there are so many decisions to make. One of such decisions is choosing a venue – this is arguably the biggest determinant of the atmosphere your party will have. Below are factors you should consider to ensure you choose the right function venue for your Christmas party.

COST: This can go a long way in determining if you get the right venue. Choosing a venue that will suit your Christmas party depends on your budget. You don’t have to break the bank to hold a great Christmas party, but if you want to step it up; ensure you’re prepared to pay for the perfect function venue.

LOCATION: Choosing a great location for your venue is always important. You may have to take into consideration where your guests will be coming from. For instance, if your guests are all coming from within a certain geographical area then its best to choose a venue near the home (or office). If your guests are coming from out of town or are commuting quite a distance to the venue, check for parking options at your venue or choose a venue close to public transport hotspots. When choosing the location, it is nice to consider you guests by choosing a place they can easily find and get to.

AMBIANCE: How will venue look and feel on the day? This is an important factor as it will go a long way in making your guests feel comfortable. Try to choose a venue with a nice architecture design, lovely decorations or an open space.

FACILITIES OF THE VENUE: Always check with the venue that they can provide the facilities, amenities and services available at the venue as it can help make your Christmas party a success.

Does the venue have a kitchen that will cater for the food and drinks of you guests? Does the venue have tables, chairs, curtains along with other decorations that will be needed for the party? Does it provide waiters that will serve you guests and/or take their orders? Is the venue able to organise music for your function, and do they possess the correct equipment? Getting a venue that has the capacity to help you with these can be important for the success of your Christmas function.

CAPACITY OF THE VENUE: Christmas is a busy time and people can be hard to organise. Check the capacity of your desired venue and make sure they can accommodate for your numbers. It is best to be upfront early about potential numbers and changes so that your venue can prepare. Many larger function venues will have multiple spaces for hire within their venue so if you have your eye on a particular spot, be sure to get in early!

There is a lot you need to consider when choosing the right function venue for your party, break it down into the factors about and it may be a little easier!
