Engagement Celebration Organizing – tips, suggestions and styling | Mademoiselle

I had a few requests to do a video on how I planned our Engagement Party, so I thought I’d share the whole process with you all. Luke left me to it (as he’s also want to do for the wedding – !!) so I had quite much free reign for the duration of the method which certainly eased the level of stress!

I’ve linked all of the various web sites and areas that I employed down below.

I hope that this is valuable, regardless of whether you are preparing a engagement celebration, birthday party, or event!

  1. this is great thank you for this. an engagement party would be helpful in bringing guests together if unable at the ceremony itself

  2. Yes, lovely and interesting video. Thank you!
    By the way, your makeup look in this video is my favorite of the looks I’ve seen on you: very soft, feminine, and flattering to your complexion.
    Best wishes on your upcoming wedding.

  3. The.Reformations

    Big hug to you and your family whatever it is you’ve been going through.

    Off topic but your kitten!!!! Her little ears perking up when you held up the peg string😁

    I now look forward to getting glimpses of the puppy and kitten every week. Do you think you will do a quick 1/2 minute vid introducing them at some point?

  4. It was a pleasure to watch this video, even if I am from the other side of the world and my engagement party won’t be in Wellington 🙂 You are so elegant and I bet the party was beautiful. I appreciate the fact that you always take care of every single little detail! When will the wedding be?

  5. Thank you for making this vid and sharing it! I’m planning an engagement party, just a low key one for 30 in the mother in laws backyard but I have no idea what goes into an engagement party or what’s expected (by the guests) as I’ve not been to an engagement party and it was the MIL who offered to host it as my parents live out Tauranga & NZ. So this is super helpful! Ps I went to a wedding at the rowing club in Wellington and the venue was top notch!

    I really liked this video. Great tips! Sending you and your fiancée all the good wishes 🙂 I thought you were very creative with the decoration and that was an amazing idea to have a Photo Booth.
