WhereBridesGo.com is known for being "Where brides go, for what brides love" for the wedding, and it's also the perfect place to find all of the best supplies, decorations, and ideas for all of the parties that will be thrown before the actual wedding day too. There are lots of opportunities to celebrate your upcoming marriage, and we've got everything that you will need to make that happen.
You may have friends or family members that want to throw you an engagement party, and some couples even decide to throw one for themselves as a way to make the engagement announcement. If each of your families lives far away from each other, there may even be more than one engagement party. It can be a formal affair with a full dinner or a casual cocktail hour get-together. The style of the party is mainly up to the host but should be something that the bride and groom both enjoy.
Many of the wedding decorations from our online wedding store can be used for an engagement party too, and you may even be able to use some of them again at your ceremony and reception. One thing is for sure, toasts will be made. You will find beautiful toasting glasses at WhereBridesGo.com in a variety of styles to match any type of celebration. If someone other than the bride and groom are hosting the party, the two of you can even find some wonderful hostess gifts in our store to thank them with.
Your bridesmaids will throw you a bridal shower, but you may also have more groups of friends that would like to throw additional ones for you too. For example, friends that you went to school with, work colleagues, and your family. They can find lovely invitations at WhereBridesGo.com, as well as decorations and lots of different party games that are fun and entertaining.
Another party that your bridesmaids are expected to throw in your honor is the bachelorette party. Traditionally, this is meant to be your last "wild night out" before you settle down to a calm married life. Many brides still choose to go out on the town for a night of drinking and dancing with their girlfriends, but it's also now commonplace to choose other types of activities for a bachelorette party. These could be a spa day with the ladies, a wine tour, a day full of crafting, a boat cruise, or even a good old-fashioned slumber party.
The party activities are up to you and your bridesmaids. When it comes to all of the fun party supplies you will need for all of the exciting things you've chosen to do, you should send your hostesses to our online party supply store. As for the fellas, they can even find some great items at WhereBridesGo.com for a fun bachelor party too.
You may want to take a look at all of our pre-wedding party supplies while you are visiting WhereBridesGo.com searching for items to host an amazing wedding. Mark a few of your favorites, and then send a list of those to the people that are throwing the pre-wedding celebrations for you. It will give them a good idea of the things that you like but still let them do the shopping on their own so there are a few surprises left for you at the actual event.
