Congratulations! You’ve just gotten engaged, and are on your way to marrying the love of your life. Naturally, this momentous occasion calls for celebration, and what better way to get all your friends, family, and loved ones excited for upcoming wedding than with an engagement party?
Engagement parties are a great way to celebrate the love you share with your future spouse, and you definitely don’t want to have a boring party. Luckily, the team at Platinum Banquet Hall is here to help. We’ve hosted plenty of engagement celebrations and weddings, and know exactly what it takes to host a great party. With that in mind, we’re running through some creative engagement party ideas that your guests are guaranteed to love.
1. Wine Tasting Engagement Party
If you’re hoping to have an intimate engagement party, then a wine tasting is the perfect type of event. Your guests will love a low-key, classy wine tasting to celebrate your upcoming wedding. You can always book some time at a local winery, but if you that’s not an option you can rent an event venue and hire a wine expert to help make your event a success.
2. Family-Style Party
There are bound to be at least a few children in attendance at your wedding, so why not get them in on the celebrating early by having a family-style engagement party? If your family is filled with children, or if you have many friends with kids, then an all-ages, family-style party is the perfect option. Just be sure to plan plenty of fun activities to help the kids, and the rest of your guests, have fun!

3. Engagement Tea Party
If formal parties are more your thing, then consider planning an engagement tea party to celebrate your upcoming wedding. A tea party might seem like an “upper-crust” affair, but your party is guaranteed to be a success if you get some great catering. We recommend including an assortment of bite-sized desserts and hors d’oeuvres at your tea party, giving guests plenty to enjoy.
4. Engagement Barbecue
Looking to have some seriously delicious catering at your engagement party? Then consider an engagement barbecue. Just about everyone loves barbecue, and your guests will definitely appreciate having some delicious eats at your part. You can host your barbecue at home or get it catered at an event venue, allowing you to plan the party on just about any budget.
5. Brunch-Time Bash
Most engagement parties are evening affairs, but planning a morning celebration will bring a totally new flair to your party. We recommend planning a catered weekend brunch for your engagement party, giving your guests a whole new kind of engagement celebration to enjoy.
6. Evening Cocktail Party
Everybody loves a good cocktail, and an evening cocktail party is the perfect way to celebrate your upcoming wedding. Simply find a great bar and gather all your friends for a night of drinking, dancing, and fun! Just be sure to plan accordingly. You might want to reserve some space if you’re going to a popular location, and if you’re having a lot of guests you should probably just rent your own venue.
