An engagement or betrothal is the period of time between a marriage proposal and the marriage itself (which is typically but not always commenced with a wedding).


During this period, a couple is said to be fiancés (from the French), betrothed, intended, affianced, engaged to be married, or simply engaged. Future brides and grooms may be called fiancée (feminine) or fiancé (masculine), the betrothed, a wife-to-be or husband-to-be, respectively.

The duration of the courtship varies vastly, and is largely dependent on cultural norms or upon the agreement of the parties involved.  Find out below what pre-wedding events are celebrated before marriage.

Bachelorette Party New Zealand

Bachelorette & Bachelor Parties (Hens/Stag Party's)

No matter how you’re planning to celebrate your bachelorette or bachelor party, it’s always one of the most anticipated pre-wedding events. A night (or weekend!) with your closest friends, having an absolute blast—what’s not to love?

For brides and grooms—and same sex couples—that share a lot of the same friends, hosting two separate parties may seem like kind of a waste of time—and a missed opportunity to celebrate with all their loved ones before the big day. To combat this dilemma, a new trend in pre-wedding parties has popped up: The bachelor/bachelorette party hybrid, which brings all friends together for a crazy good time. Instead of focusing on a bash for just the bride or just the groom, this joint party can be inspired by who the bride and groom are as a couple, along with their shared interests and friends. 

As with all of your wedding planning, when it comes to your last fling before the ring, timing is everything. You can breathe easy knowing we have worked hard behind the scenes to ensure everything is runs smoothly for you for very your last pre-wedding celebration!

Stress less, Princess! We've got you covered.
