If you’ve recently said the ‘Big Yes’ it’s time to celebrate with your friends and family by throwing an engagement party.

Engagement Party Idea 1: Champagne Brunch

What could be more glamours then a champagne brunch? A champagne brunch is the perfect elegant event for celebrating your big news with friends and family while channelling your inner Holly Golightly. Host your engagement brunch at a stylish venue with elegant decor and an excellent variety of breakfast and brunch menu options. Plenty of flowers and white lace will add a bridal feel to the event. Depending on the size of your engagement party you can either opt for a sit-down breakfast or you may instead choose to have a breakfast buffet.

Engagement Party Idea 2: Mad Men Cocktail Party

While Betty and Don Draper aren’t exactly #relationshipgoals nobody can deny Mad Men is brimming with charm and style. There is no reason you can’t take out the more fun aspects of the show for a truly stylish 50’s cocktail party to celebrate your engagement with friends and family. Find a function room that has some serious Mad Men vibes to host your chic 50’s style engagement party. Organise some hot and cold canapés, and a variety of classic cocktails to be passed around throughout the night.


Engagement Party Idea 3: White Party

White parties are the go-to event for the rich and the famous and for good reason. A white party is an easy dress code for your guests to abide. The theme creates an excellent aesthetic and even better pictures that will get you more double taps then you’ve ever had before. You can choose to host your all white party in your backyard if you’re a little strapped for cash or alternatively host it at a venue where the staff are happy to help you bring your all white vision to life. Having just the one colour theme makes finding decorations, food and something to wear surprisingly easy.


Engagement Party Idea 4: Garden Party

An engagement party in your garden is the perfect way for an outdoorsy couple to celebrate their big news. The best part is that a garden party is really versatile when it comes to themes. The backyard can be set up in a glamping inspired theme, Alice In Wonderland or even a hoedown throwdown complete with hay bales, fire pits and country tunes. If the party is at home then you can either cook up a bbq feast or organise a caterer to take care of the food.


Engagement Party Idea 5: Private dining

For a more intimate engagement party celebration, gather your closest loved ones and book a private dining room at a restaurant of your choice. If you want something extra special, work with the staff to organise a set menu or share style feast in advance. You could event opt to have wine pairings over different courses. If you prefer a more laid back affair then just organise a tab and let everyone order as they please.


Engagement Party Idea 6: Sunset Cruise

Set sail on the high seas with a romantic sunset cruise. Organise a private chartered cruise around the bay and celebrate your special news with a handful of your closest friends and family members as the sun sets over glistening waters. Organise nibbles and cocktails for all those on board and sit back and enjoy the ride.
