Brisbane Engagement Party Venue Hire Guide

Congratulations on your engagement! Hosting an engagement party can be challenging. You want to make sure that it's unforgettable for you and all of your friends and family, but also not too stressful. To help out with the planning process, we’ve put together a guide on hosting an engagement party in Brisbane. Before making any final decisions about your engagement venue, check out these FAQs:

What should I consider before choosing an engagement party venue in Brisbane?

People often use engagement parties as an opportunity to announce their upcoming wedding and celebrate with family and friends. If you are considering hosting your engagement party, there are many things that come into play when deciding where it should be held. Consider these factors:

The program

Is the engagement party an event or just a dinner gathering? What type of celebration do you want to have? Do you need space for guests to dance, play games and other activities while mingling before the meal starts?

The budget

How much are you willing to spend on your engagement party? This will dictate most aspects of your engagement party venue, including the location, size, venue type and capacity.

What should I know about cocktail parties?

Cocktail parties can be tricky because they require more work on your part in terms of organising food and drinks for guests while still enjoying yourself. If this sounds like the engagement party you want, make sure you have an experienced caterer to help with food and drink preparation.

The guest list

If you are inviting 400 guests, for example, will your engagement party venue accommodate that number of people? How about if you only want to invite a few close family members and friends? You don't want to hire a larger function space than you need as you might not be able to fill it.

The look

This one can be tricky as engagement parties come in all sorts of themes, from an engagement party at home to something more formal like a black-tie affair.

What are the venue types for hosting an engagement party in Brisbane?

Brisbane has so many engagement party venues to choose from. From the heart of Brisbane City, to the river and out to outlying suburbs, there are many different options for hosting an engagement party.

Depending on the number of guests you expect to attend and the vibe you're going for, the type of venue you choose can vary. Whether you're thinking of having an intimate banquet in a private dining room with close friends, some cocktails and canapes on a rooftop bar or an all out party with hundreds of guests there's a venue out there for you.

Some of the most popular venue types to celebrate your engagement party include:

Outdoor event spaces

Whether it's a garden marquee or a venue with waterfront views, open-air function spaces are great for both daytime and nighttime engagement celebrations.

Function rooms

Brisbane function rooms can be anything from a private bar, private dining room, to a function room with a dance floor, catering kitchen, stage, projector screen or even a carousel!

Venues with indoor and outdoor spaces

Planning an engagement party outside? Some function venues in Brisbane offer both indoor and outdoor space. You can enjoy your engagement celebration inside, with a cocktail style reception for dinner, then head out to the garden or courtyard area for dancing under the stars!

Restaurants and lounges

These venues are perfect for when you want a more intimate event space, or if you're looking for something that provides the option of in-house catering.

Live music venues

Live music venues are perfect for a night event, with the added benefit of being able to take your event outside. Some also have function rooms that can be hired out and come complete with dance floors! A lounge or a cocktail bar with live music is great for an intimate engagement celebration.

Venues with scenic views

If you're looking for an engagement party venue that will give you the most Instagram-worthy photos, then an event space overlooking Brisbane's beautiful river is just the thing.

How much does it cost to hire an engagement party venue in Brisbane?      

The average cost of hiring an event venue in Brisbane for your engagement party is AUD 1500. This includes the cost of venue hire, catering and any other event-related costs, which can include a DJ or live band.

In addition to these factors, you will need to consider additional expenses such as transport if it's not already included with the booking fee and decorations/flowers, which can range from AUD 150 to more than AUD 1000 depending on the event.

You should also factor in any potential costs for hiring staff like a PA, event planner or photographer and taking into account their travel expenses and required food/drinks.
