Engagement Party Theme Ideas

Engagement parties are all about celebrating the love and partnership of a newly engaged couple. This means its time for the families to really get to know one another.

It’s always a good idea to incorporate the couple’s interests into the theme of the party to ensure it’s personal and memorable. So, if you pride yourself as a bit of a party planner and you’re in the midst of planning an engagement party, whether its your own or someone else’s then get inspired by these theme ideas!

Cocktail evening

What a great way to bring family and friends together with a cocktail themed party. Are the newly weds renowned for loving a good night out? Then this is the perfect excuse to get the drinks flowing with the ladies in their cocktail dresses and the men in their suave suits. You can plan this night with a really classy touch, serving appetisers for the guests and bright coloured cocktails with buckets of ice. Once the drinks are flowing you’ll soon have everyone up on their feet having a dance. Don’t forget to give an indication of the theme on the invite so as people get the idea and can plan in advance!

American style BBQ

Is the party going to be in the summer months? If so, a BBQ is the perfect way to enjoy a celebration. If you’ve got a big enough back garden then this will save money on venue costs! You could even go for a real American theme with delicious food on the menu such as ribs, cheeseburgers and light nibbles for the guests to enjoy. You could even purchase the traditional American red plastic cups. If the newly engaged couple love the outdoors and a good BBQ then this could be their ideal theme. It’s also a great way to enjoy a nice informal summers evening (just makes sure you pick a good weather day!)

White & gold champagne party

This idea is for those who want to incorporate real high-end style into their evening. It also gives the guest a challenge with outfit choice! White and gold make a lovely, classic colour scheme and will also give the guests a real excitement for the approaching wedding. What’s more is that you can’t go wrong with champagne! Food ideas for this theme include appetisers and of course sweets and cupcakes.


Do the couple absolutely love going on holiday? They might even be getting married on the beach, in which case not all guests will be able to attend due to expense or work commitments. Therefore why not bring the beach home and celebrate with a tropical themed party! You could hold this either outside or indoors, go wild with decorations with coconut cocktails and fruity drinks and snacks. This theme is great for couples that love to have fun and enjoy the sunshine and tropics!

When planning an engagement party its essential to define the budget at the very early stages and from there you can plan the perfect theme around it. Send out invites early to ensure guests have enough time to prepare their outfits!
