Come Party With Me: Engagement Party - Music

Well I've just about wrapped up the party plan for julieulie and Scott's engagement party (Julie: you still haven't told me the story of how you got engaged!). The event is being held later in the evening because it's a dessert party where sparkling wine will be poured freely and desserts will be decadently divine. The invitees have rsvped, the desserts - including the couples favorites - have been chosen, the drinks are waiting to be chilled, and the fiesta space is looking decorative. But before I give the green light to this party there is one more thing to worry about: the music! An elegant engagement party that sets the tone of the upcoming wedding must have an equally sophisticated soundtrack. To see my playlist,

The bride-and-groom-to-be's favorite love songs should definitely be a part of the compilation as should the couple's "song." Since this is a party that is celebrated with family and friends, steer clear from playing too many current younger hits. Classics like Frank Sinatra, the Police, and the Beatles are wise choices. Romantic love songs are appropriate but don't go overboard on the cheese. BuzzSugar has put together a popping the question themed playlist that you could include on the rotation as well.

Got any fabulous engagement party music suggestions readers? Please tell us your songs below!

Whoops, sorry Party, I didn't realize I was supposed to post my engagement story -- it is now up there. Also andaman - I agree that Michael Buble would be perfect -- the younger crowd knows him, and he covers all the songs that the older crowd loves. Great suggestion!

Michael Buble (probably spell wrong here) is good. It's romantic and would be such a hit with all the older relatives and your parents!. I think some of the beatles is cool too. And how can you forget James Blunt! It's cheesy but good for girls.
