Engagement Parties are not only for fun and entertainment, but also a way of socializing and eating together. When my sister was getting engaged, the preparations and decorations that actually led to the party are still very much indelible in my memory. What makes an engagement party so glamorously special and memorable? Read on to find out!
My sister and I were at the parlor getting dressed. While I wore a burgundy saree, my sister wore a red one. I wore burgundy roses in my hair and had make-up fixed by the hairdresser. My sister took a long time getting dressed – she had her nails done, her hair and her face decorated beautifully – so she looked like a beautiful bride-to-be at the end of the process. Her Prince Charming was abroad and his mom had come out with the proposal of engagement while she was here with her remaining family.
After my sister and I were fully dressed, we drove a long way back home near about which in a restaurant was held the actual party.
Our mom had come and relatives started arriving. The video armed man started taking videos of all those who entered the huge hallway. Other guests arrived and finally the would-be bridegroom’s family made entrance. There was a lot of hustle and bustle as they made their way into the hallway.
There were dinner tables in red and white arranged around the hallway. There was low music in the air. There were dim colored and white lights adding to the pomp and show. The bride-to-be had a spectacular comfortable sitting arrangement. The mom of the bridegroom-to-be handed over the ring to my sister’s long and fair ring finger. And the guests clapped and applauded.
This to-be bridegroom’s family was given extra attendance and care and so were the rest of the guests in treating them dinner. It was a grand dinner of mixed fried rice, grilled chicken, sizzling beef, vegetarian dishes, prawn dish and drinks.
After a while, the to-be bridegroom’s family left. We relaxedly had a chitchat among all close relatives as many guests left. After a little talk among ourselves and relaxing and paying off the bills, my gorgeous sister and I finally returned home, putting an end to the party.
Engagement parties like this are great for socializing and eating out, without having the real burden and workload of an actual wedding party. A pre-wedding entertaining party dining out forms a way of enjoyment and recreation with relatives, friends and other close people with whom we want to keep in touch and keep closely bonded for years together.
