1. A ring ceremony at your engagement party is a must-have!

Although it started in the west, the ring ceremony is the first thing that pops up in our mind when we hear the term ‘engagement’.

So, if you are a groom-to-be looking for the best engagement party ideas, get down on your knees while you make her wear the ring. Well, it’s romantic and we, ladies, wait for this moment all our lives.
