Engagement parties originated as a way of giving the father of the bride-to-be the honor of announcing to his friends and family the engagement of his daughter. This announcement was meant to be a surprise to his guests. In modern times and thanks to the invention of social media, engagement parties have changed just a little. Even though an Engagement party is still traditionally hosted by the bride-to-be parents, it is used to celebrate the news of the couple’s recent engagement and is not to surprise the guests with the announcement as in the past. So with that being said, what do you need to know to throw an engagement party?

Who can host an engagement party?

Today, it is customary that the bride’s parents host the party. However, many modern couples are starting to host their own parties in order to celebrate with their friends the exciting news. So it does not matter if the engagement invites are sent by the couple or the parents of the bride. There is nothing set in stone.


What needs to be included in your engagement invites?

Just like any other party invitations, you will need to put the essential details. These essential details are things such as place, time, and how to RSVP in order to get an accurate guest count.

They are a powerhouse of antioxidants like vitamins A, B, C, E, and minerals like iron, calcium, magnesium, and fiber.

Actress Kangana Ranaut has talked about how her weight adjustments for her latest 'Thalaivii' that "messed up many things" in her body and left her with "permanent stretch marks". For her role in the film, based on the life of late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and former actress J. Jayalalithaa, Kangana had to gain 20kg and undergo major physical transformation several times.

She took to Instagram to share her experience, detailing that doing all that over the six months period left her with "permanent stretch marks". "Gaining 20 kgs in 6 months and loosing it all within 6 months that too in my thirties messed up many things in my bodya I also have permanent stretch marks as well but art comes to life with a price and more often than not price is the artist him/herself," she wrote.

"Thalaivii" showcases the varied aspects of Jayalalithaa's life, tracing her journey as an actress at a young age to becoming the face of Tamil cinema, as well as the rise of the revolutionary leader who changed the course of the state's politics. Talking about her upcoming works, Kangana currently has 'Dhaakad'.

She is also shooting for her next 'Tejas', where she plays a fighter pilot. The Indian Air Force was the first of the country's defence forces to induct women into combat roles in 2016. The film takes inspiration from the landmark event. 'Tejas' is directed by debutant Sarvesh Mewara. The film will be RSVP's second film which pays a tribute to the Indian military after the immensely successful film "Uri: The Surgical Strike" which was released in January 2019. (IANS/ MBI)
