Gold Coast Engagement Party Venue Hire Guide

First and foremost, congratulations! Now that you're engaged, this is the perfect time to make your relationship official with a bang! Engagement parties are the perfect way for you and all of those close to you to get together and celebrate as one big happy family!

Not sure where to start or exactly what to do? Not a problem! We've got all the answers on how (and where) to plan your engagement party. 

Steps to planning an engagement party

Planning your engagement party can be a bit overwhelming, but if you follow these few steps, everything will go by in a breeze!

Step 1: Choose your date  

This is the first step to hosting an engagement party because you'll want to have enough time to plan, shop for and prepare everything that goes into this event. While it's always nice to be spontaneous, planning at least a month or more ahead of time will give you plenty of days to settle in to the idea and get everything you need, especially if you're thinking about sending out invitations.

Step 2: Pick a theme  

No matter what kind of party you're hosting, you'll want one thing to be certain – it has to reflect your personalities and relationship. This is a special day for the both of you, so try to highlight who you are as a couple, incorporate decorations that show your style and don't be afraid to get a little crazy!

Step 3: Determine your budget

Now that you know what kind of party you're planning, it's time to determine your budget. This doesn't mean that you can't have a small-scale event, it just means that you won't go overboard with extravagance if you don't have to.

This will help you determine how much money your party should cost and what kind of activities you should prepare. Likewise, knowing your budget will also help you narrow down venue ideas and determine on the number of guests you can invite. For example, decide if you're going for something more intimate, only having a few close friends and family attend, or if you want to invite everyone in the world (within reason).

Step 4: Decide on the location

The key to the perfect engagement party is picking the right venue for your event. You want it to be somewhere where you and all of those around you can relax, bond, have a great time, and most importantly- celebrate! The good news is that we've compiled a fantastic list of engagement party venues on the Gold Coast that are sure to meet the demands of your event.

Step 5: Plan the menu

What's a party without great food? Of course, you don't have to go overboard and prepare a five-course meal. Decide on finger foods like small sandwiches or appetisers if you're planning a picnic style party or try a buffet for something more upscale. Just don't forget dessert!

Dos and Don'ts of engagement parties

Now that you're getting started on planning the celebrations, here are a few dos and don'ts to help make sure your engagement party is a success.

Do: Keep it simple and have fun

While everyone is enjoying themselves don't forget to have fun! So, don't overdo or stress yourself out by planning the most extravagant thing in the world. The main reason you are hosting this party is because you love each other and want to celebrate your union with those close to you, so just have fun and celebrate as a couple!

Do: Delegate

If you can, delegate! Don't be afraid to reach out for help, enlist family and friends to take charge of various aspects of the party such as decoration, food or even taking some photos of the guests.

Don't: Overspend

Spending too much money is not a good idea. If you go overboard, chances are you'll regret having spent so much on something that you do not need. Remember: Your engagement party is the first event of many to come!

Do: Add personal touches

Don't forget to add personal touches; try adding your names or photos into the décor so that it is more consistent with your taste. You can add a small photo on the napkins, printing pictures of the couple in the invitations and making sure that each detail reflects what the couple likes best. You could also choose dishes that represent both you and your partner. If you like spicy foods, for example, make sure to have some salsa or hot sauce on the table. This truly adds a personal touch!

Don't Panic

The city of Gold Coast offers a wide variety of locations for your engagement party. The choices can be overwhelming especially if you are planning the event at short notice and are still undecided about what to do and where to go on your special day.

Worry no more!  If you are looking forward to a glamorous and fun filled event, Gold Coast has exactly what you need. Here in VenueNow, you can search through a ton of party venues to make your engagement part as enjoyable as it can be!
