There will be hardly anyone, who does not want her engagement day to be special and a memorable event. One of the best ways to achieve this objective is by choosing a theme for your engagement party. This will make things a lot easier when it comes to the execution of the party. Additionally, the stress level will be minimal in this case, as you do not have to brainstorm much about the arrangements – once you choose a theme, everything will just fall in place.
Another advantage of throwing theme based engagement parties is the professional appeal it offers. Still, picking a particular style from a pool of engagement theme ideas will be really challenging. In order to help you out with this, below are some of the most amazing engagement theme ideas you can try.
Wine Tasting Engagement Party
If you are planning to host an adults-only party, a wine tasting engagement theme will be perfect. After all, who does not love relishing their favorite wine? You can arrange a wine bar that displays a variety of wine, and include some of the favorites of the newly engaged couple there. Otherwise, you can ask your guests to bring their favorite wine along with them so that you can have an engaging party and everyone gets to enjoy their favorite drink.
One of the main problems that usually occur in this type of engagement parties is a shortage of glasses. So, make sure that you have enough number of wine glasses to serve at least two types of wine to each guest. Apart from that, make sure that the menu includes some of the best food options such as cheeses and baguettes, hummus and pita bread, strawberries, sliced apples, grapes, etc., to boost up the overall wine tasting experience.
When it comes to the décor, try to keep it vintage or rustic by incorporating wine barrels, weathered doors, old furniture or some with a worn out appeal, ornate mirrors, and all. For a professional touch, hire a sommelier veteran to spruce up your wine tasting engagement party.
Rooftop Engagement Party
What can be more romantic than exchanging the engagement rings in an intimate setting that offers you a bird’s eye view of the city? In order to achieve this ultimate ambiance, organize your bash at any of the rooftop bars or restaurants that offers a breathtaking sight. For the décors, you can use recliners or chairs that create the appeal of a lounge area. If you want to keep it casual, go for string lights, unique furniture pieces that offer a shabby appeal, and canopy settings.
When it comes to the food menu for rooftop engagement parties, you can choose the favorite cuisine of the bride and the groom. Yet it will be better to hire bearers to serve food rather than arranging a buffet meal at the rooftop. Another important thing to consider here is the weather conditions; in case you are getting engaged during the summer, beat the heat by including some chilled dishes in your menu such as ice creams, slushies, lemonades, variety of fruits, etc.
If you are organizing the party in winter, make sure that you have a basket of blankets or pashmina shawls to keep your guests warm. To keep the vibe of the engagement party entertaining, arrange a photo booth where the guests can take their pictures that boast a panoramic view of the city in the background.
Brunch Engagement Party
This is one of the easiest engagement party themes, which you can execute without taking any stress. The only thing you need to do here is sit down and discuss the menu; make sure to include all the favorites of the couple. For instance, if the couple loves French cuisine, dream up the menu by incorporating macaroons, quiche, mini champagne bottles, etc. You can also include homemade dishes like blueberry pancakes, granola, croissants, etc., to offer a rustic appeal to your bash. Furthermore, style up the venue with minimal decors that reflects the French culture.
If you want to keep it simple, a cocktail bar that displays a variety of small bites will be a great option. Here, you may include options such as mini French toast, scrambled egg tartlets, mozzarella sticks, and all. When it comes to the drinks, it is better to stick on with the basics like a Bellini, juice, coffee, mimosa, etc.
A great advantage of a brunch-themed engagement party is that there are no particular venue requirements in order to organize this bash; you can either keep it in your courtyard or go to any cozy restaurants. If you are more of an outdoor person, you may choose to organize your bash in a garden.
