Do you know if they’re having a reception back home after their destination wedding? (If they’re already planning something, than you wouldn’t want to double-dip). If they’re not I think a suprise reception is a great idea with they’re closest family/friends.

If they are hosting their own reception, what if you throw them an engagement party pre-wedding instead?

Do you have a budget in mind?

You could rent a room at a restaurant/bar and invite closest family/friends, or you could invite them for a potluck-type event?

We kind-of did this for some friends who just got married by the jp, and weren’t planning on doing anything. A group of friends got together and showed up at their house with food and drinks in tow. It was very low-key but they were super touched. So you don’t have to spend a bunch of money to impress, but that will decide what type of event/party you are throwing.
