I am a soon to be bride (well, not THAT soon…) and I was wondering if there were any unique ideas for an engagment party that wouldn’t break the bank (my mom will be throwing it for us) and venues.. I am not really a banquet hall type of gal.. and none of my family member’s houses are adequate. I am not interested in a restaurant or anywhere we would have to pay per head.. thanks !

One idea we had for our rehearsal dinner was to have a bowling party with pizza and beer. We didn’t end up doing it for a few reasons, but I read a lot of positive reviews from people who did!
If you have a nice park in the area you could host a picnic?
Good luck and happy engagement 🙂

I like the picnic idea. This might sound a little childish but could you rent out a nicer bowling alley, or a movie theater and have a screening of your fav movie (or the 1st one you watched togather). Or you could try and rent out a room at a sporting event (think a box at a basketball game perhaps)or a room at a horse race. Just some out of the box ideas.

We just had an appetizer party and our lovely hostess bought all the stuff from Trader Joe’s and Costco. It was great!

Those are all great ideas! I would need a venue suitable for older people (older aunts, uncles, grandparents etc) and somewhere we could have a DJ though, so an outdoor party isn’t really a possibility…
