10 Simple but Awesome Engagement Party Ideas

Tradition states that the bride's parents host the engagement party, but these days you can throw your own party. You can also have more than one party in more than one location, so if you have friends across the country you can have one at home and one that everyone can get to.

Depending on how long your engagement will be, you can throw a party anytime - from a few weeks after the proposal to months into wedding planning. You can also have a party as big or as small as you want. There really are no rules to follow!

If you're stuck for ideas then we have 10 perfect engagement party ideas that will suit every couple.

Get into the garden

Have a garden party with all your friends and family and tell them your good news!

Time for tea

Everyone loves tea and cake, so why not have a tea party to celebrate your engagement. The ultimate family-friendly celebration!

Party at the pool

Not every party has to be in the evening with dinner and cocktails and eveningwear. Why not have an afternoon pool party and invite everyone round to celebrate and swim.

Go for dinner

Organize a meal at your favorite restaurant and invite everyone you know. Have it as formal or informal as you like!

Choose a theme

Have a themed party and celebrate in style whatever theme you choose.

Engagement brunch

Brunch is perfect if you want a semi-formal engagement celebration during the day, whether you want it at home or at a restaurant.

Picnic in the park

There's nothing sweeter than a picnic! Having an engagement picnic is not only a great way to celebrate your good news, it's the perfect opportunity for an engagement shoot.

Celebrate at home

Why not invite people into your home for a house party? If you're on a budget then this is the perfect way to celebrate without spending a fortune!

Drink up!

Having a wine tasting to celebrate is the perfect way to break the ice for people who will more than likely be at your wedding.

Ships ahoy!

Hire a boat and take a cruise with family and friends to celebrate your engagement. You'll get some photos of your engagement that you'll treasure forever!
