Engagement parties are the perfect opportunity to celebrate your love and upcoming nuptials with family and friends. Incorporating a theme into your party is also a great way to show off your personality as a couple while creating a unique experience for you and your guests. From beachside soirees to a day of wine tasting, here are six of our favorite engagement party themes that you’re sure to love:
If you’ll be hosting a smaller, more intimate engagement party, a backyard bonfire is perfect for gathering your closest friends and family. Create a cozy setting for guests with a small fire pit for keeping warm and roasting s’mores. Add a hot chocolate bar and a few blankets for final touches!
Spring and summer are great times for a garden party engagement theme with outdoor games, mini sandwiches and more! Set up a game of crochet for your guests to play throughout the party with fruity deserts, fresh flowers and other seasonal decor.
Depending on the time of year you’ll be hosting your party, have a little fun by incorporating an upcoming holiday into your engagement party theme. Whether it’s Valentine’s Day decor or Christmas themed cocktails, it’s an easy way to create a fun atmosphere.
Whether your party is big or small, head to your local winery for a fun day of tastings. Celebrate your engagement while discovering the perfect wine pairings – you may even find a special wine you want to serve on your wedding day!
Take your engagement celebration seaside with a beach escape. Create a table setup on the sand or opt for a picnic setting with pillows and blankets. It’s also easy to add in themed decor such as shells, starfish, saltwater taffy and more. Don’t have a beach nearby? You can always recreate this setting in your backyard or even poolside!
Ice Cream Social
Add some sugar to your festivities with an old fashioned ice cream social. Not only is this a great engagement party theme for both adults and kids, it can also be done indoor or outdoors depending on the time of year. Set up an ice cream bar with your favorite flavors and an extra table full of toppings for guest to choose from.
