Tips on Engagement Party Planning
The Skyline Princess is the perfect venue for your engagement party and we want you to plan a memorable event. According to the wedding planning website, The Knot, the purpose of the party is to share the big announcement, while in the process bringing the bride and groom’s relatives and loved ones together, possibly for the first time.
The bride’s family are considered the traditional hosts, although the groom’s family can throw a later party and many couples eschew the tradition and host themselves. There also used to be a principle of etiquette that states you should only invite guests you plan to invite to the wedding, but couples may live far away from family and friends so that rule is being relaxed. The party itself can be as casual or as formal as you’d like it and Skyline’s chef can help make your vision a reality. Our food options range from a casual cocktail to a full sit-down banquet.
Skyline is a Perfect Venue for Any Celebration
The Skyline Princess is the perfect place to hold any type of celebration. Not just engagement parties. We offer full ship charters for your event that leave from ports in New York, New Jersey, Westchester, Connecticut and Long Island. We can play host to any celebration large or small. From a Sweet 16 to a 50th wedding anniversary to business meetings and of course wedding and engagement ceremonies.
Skyline works with all types of groups with all types of budgets. Many of our clients rent a private deck on one of our public cruises for their celebration. It’s a tremendous value. We can also set aside groups of tables for your event or even for just a handful of people. Whatever it is you’re looking to do, just talk to us, we’ll do our best to make it happen.
If you have friends and loved ones coming from out of town for your engagement party, why not show them the awesome sights of New York City, plus a whole lot more. To get started, contact Skyline today.
