With the engagement party making a comeback, there’s tons of brides and friends and family of couples planning and thinking of ideas for engagement parties.  You need to organize your guest list, book a venue, send out invitations, and even look around for wedding favors, that can be used as your engagement party favors instead!  So with a new year, we’ve brought you some new unique engagement ideas to make your special day one of a kind.

Who needs a boring old sit down dinner anyway?  Dare to be different and host a different kind of party.  Gather your guests in a fondue restaurant and prepare yourself for a night of dipping breads and desserts into melted cheese and gooey chocolate!  Check out your area for a laid back lounge and invite your friends and family for drinks and hor-dourves (isn’t cocktail hour everyone’s favorite part?).  Or maybe you’d like to rent out your favorite cafe and create a coffee bar for a mega-caffeine fix and pastries.  Try thinking about what you and your beau like and enjoy, and plan your engagement party around it.  After all, the engagement party is a bit more intimate than the wedding and can be less formal too.

Here are some more venue ideas you may want to consider for your engagement party:


1. Museum
2. Lounge
3. Cafe/Coffee Shop
4. Vineyard
5. Farmhouse
6. Bakery
7. Aquarium
8. Historical Site
9. Picnicing Area
10. Fun, Themed Restaurants
