5 Fun Engagement Party Ideas

I’ve been to engagement parties held in Ma’s and Pa’s backyard and others held at restaurants and gardens.

Each vary depending on the bride and groom, so to host an engagement party, find your go-to theme and start planning! But before anything else, here are some FAQs about hosting an engagement party.
