When planning an engagement party one needs to properly plan it and make the day special and remember able as it is a day which signifies the begging of life with each other.

If you want a closed party makes sure you indicate it in the card so that people can bring their invitations with them.

You should also indicate the names of the people who got engaged so that people can know the couple who are celebrating their engagement. Once you are through making the invitations send them out early so that people can organize themselves. Invitations can be sent through snail mail or through email which is much faster, convenient and cheaper.
