Engagement Party Ideas in Jewel Tones
Ah! Once you get engaged, there are so many fun events, one of which are engagement parties. Ideas are often hard to find, but the inspiration below in summer jewel tones (or spring jewel tones, if you prefer – or any time of year, really!) has lots of engagement party ideas!
What happens at an engagement party?
If you are wondering about things to do at an engagement party or what happens at an engagement party, but there really are no set rules. It’s basically a get-together to celebrate and honor the bride and groom-to-be.
You can be as formal as sending engagement party invitations and having the ladies wear jewel tone formal dresses if you’d like. Or it can be as simple as inviting a few friends for drinks and a cookout. The formality is up to you, but the point is to celebrate!
What are jewel tones?
And what is the jewel tones definition? Traditionally, it’s classic colors that are deeper and are in the hues of gemstones – amethyst, sapphire, emerald, and the like. This take on jewel tones – hair of the bride-to-be included – pairs gold with the jewel tone color palette. Pantone lovers unite! It’s such a regal look and can lead to some really creative engagement party decorations.
Engagement party ideas
Why not gather friends for an intimate, catered meal in your home (or another if you choose)? It’s a way to be able to chat and converse while enjoying engagement party toasts in your jewel tones clothes. Speaking of clothes, the ladies below are wearing upscale casual jewel tone dresses. You don’t have to go formal, but it is nice to dress it up a bit. And the bride-to-be is wearing a jewel tone jumpsuit in teal. Such a pretty choice!
As far as engagement table decorations, ideas can be as simple as adding in candles in jewel tones or using gold silverware and plating. It creates such a stunning, regal look! The jewel tone wedding table below is simple, yet elegant, and the pops of color really shine through. I’d say that the answer to “are jewel tones coming back” is a resounding YES!
And the inspiration below can be used for many instances – a jewel tone wedding color palette, a jewel tone bridal shower, jewel-tone bridesmaids bouquets. Use the engagement party ideas below, and transform them to create your own event.
