Finding The Perfect Theme for your Engagement Party

Deciding on an engagement party theme is the first step in having a fabulous party. Think about what you love to do, your lifestyle, who you are as a couple, how you met, fell in love, or how he proposed, and use one or more of those elements to create your theme.

Did you get engaged or first meet in Vegas? If so consider a Casino Night. Did you first fall in love in Mexico? Try a Fiesta party. Love to watch movies together? Turn that into a Hollywood party theme. When you see the color Tiffany Blue does it scream romance for you? Then use the color as your party theme.

The point is your party theme can be just about anything but in order to make it personal you need to make it relevant to the two of you. It can be based on a color scheme, a country, movie, novel, the types of people you are, or anything else you can think of.

Themed Engagement Parties: It's all in the Details

From your invitations to your food, beverages and decorations—they all need to work with your theme, no matter what it is.

Having a casual backyard barbecue? Turn it into an outdoor theme by thinking up some clever ways of using your backyard as a stage and elements from within it as part of your decor.

First, the invitations because they set the tone for the party. They're also the first impression your guests will have about your event so try to make them as special as the party itself. Like this fabulous simple daisy with a tag party invitation (you can use a flower from your backyard or a florist).

You don't need a big budget to make your theme a success, you just need a little imagination. Bring some elements from inside your house outside to set up a bar along the wall or simply to make a visually interesting display.

For centerpieces look around your house and yard...basic votive candles, burlap, moss, and succulents from your garden can turn into a striking display.

Mix and match whatever you'd like. It'll all work together if they're connected through a theme.

Our Top Ten Best Engagement Party Themes

Masquerade Party: Simple or sophisticated, a Masquerade party will transform your event and your guests into a magical celebration. For a simple affair, think about just providing hats or hand-held masks. For a sophisticated and elegant over-the-top event get inspired by the Carnival of Venice.

Ooh La La!  - A Parisian Theme: The city of lights and romance is the perfect backdrop for your indoor or outdoor event.

Hollywood Glamour: A Hollywood themed party is all about glitz and glamor. Choose a single movie or the whole industry and bring tinsel town to your party!

Tiffany Blue: Nothing says romance and courtship in North America like the iconic color known as Tiffany Blue. It's the perfect understated and elegant theme that can be dressed up or down to suit your personal style.

Mexican Fiesta: Say Ole! as your guest enjoy your Fiesta party celebration. This is one theme that's easy on the budget and wonderful on the eyes.

Diamonds and Bling!: Nothing says "wedding engagement" like diamonds, and everyone loves a little Bling! so what could be better than a theme that combines the two. Think rhinestones, crystal, cut glass and turn your party into a sparkly event!

Retro:  The 60s and 70s lend themselves really well to a groovy or funky affair. It's a playful theme full of fun, color, and surprises. Who doesn't like lava lamps, peace signs, and tie-dye? For a more demure crowd go late 50s early 60s and bring on the Mad Men.

Luau: Transform your party in to a Polynesian wonderland with tiki torches, floral leis, grasses and exotic drinks. It's the perfect theme for night time outdoor parties.

Carnival Theme: Both young and old will enjoy a hometown Carnival theme. Photo booths, games and fun make it the perfect theme for an afternoon and outdoor event.
