Engagement Party ideas

You got your ring, now it’s time to pop the champagne! It’s no surprise you want to savour this special relationship milestone – after all, an engagement party is a chance for couples to spread the love around.

 

Dreaming of a secret garden, bohemian rooftop terrace or romantic riverside spot? Whether you’re after a classy restaurant in Covent Garden or a quirky bar in north London, #tagvenue can recommend somewhere special to make your engagement celebration sparkle. And the best part? It’s easy to search, so you can find your perfect engagement party venue in a snap.

Popular engagement party ideas:

  • rooftop food and wine pairing (if you’ve been on cloud nine since the proposal, then a stylish foodie get-together promises you won’t be the only one feeling on top of the world)

  • sunset river cruise (aside from beautiful pictures, a romantic sunset cruise along the Thames is sure to amp up the feel-good factor at your engagement celebration)

  • relaxed summer party (bring in the colours you plan to use for your wedding as a theme or serve crowd-pleasing BBQ fare, like mini pulled pork sliders or truffle mac and cheese)

  • upscale brunch (elevate your daytime gathering with a waffle station, mimosa bar and personalised decor)

  • cocktail masterclass (an interactive event will take your engagement drinks to the next level)

  • Christmas engagement party (add a touch of magic to your holiday-themed shindig by choosing a colour scheme with Christmas in mind, adding festive songs to the evening’s playlist and serving mulled wine or Christmas punch)

  • wine tasting (do something a little special and hire a sommelier to guide the tasting or rent out a private room in a local wine bar for a VIP tasting session)

 

Top tips and tricks for throwing the perfect engagement party:

 

  • figure out who’ll host (engagement parties are traditionally hosted by the bride's parents, but these days anyone close to the couple can take on this role)

  • determine the budget (if you’re looking to save on venue hire, why not book a local community centre or engagement party hall?)

  • send out invites at least a month in advance (e-vites are fine for a casual get-together, but if you’re planning something a little more formal, like a sit-down dinner at a chic restaurant, consider a paper invitation)

  • decide whether you’d like a themed event (globetrotting party, luau party, vintage party and Mexican fiesta are all popular options)

  • alternatively, to keep planning low maintenance, hire an amazing venue that’ll blow everyone away

  • personalise your event (serve dishes from a special date or vacation, such as sushi rolls and gyoza for a Japanese-inspired menu)

  • consider giving a short speech to thank guests for attending (but know that etiquette doesn’t require this)

  • have a think about gifts (build a registry if you’re hoping to receive gifts or, if you’d prefer guests not to bring gifts or would like to suggest a favourite charity they could donate to instead, include a polite note on the invitation)
