Just so you know…

From an Etiquette point of view, Engagement Parties are typically thrown / hosted by someone other than the Bride & Groom themselves. 

Most often the Bride’s family… or if that it isn’t possible the Groom’s family. 

(Doesn’t mean that they have to foot the bill entirely / or at all… just for appearances, it shouldn’t look like you are hosting your own party… which can look Gift Grabby)

Ok, I’ll see what I can’t come up with. 

I am Canadian so my info will be based on some of the go-to sites that one would look at here for this issue…

Country Clubs and Restaurants with larger seperate rooms are certainly an option(although this can be a pricey because you’ll no doubt have to buy all your food & drink thru them)

For Self Catering… take a look at Community Centres – Church Halls – Legion Halls – Volunteer Halls (ie Knights of Columbus – Free Masons – Lions Club – Rotary Club) – Recreation Facilities with Meeting Halls (Curling Rinks – Hockey Arenas – Pool & Tennis Club Houses etc)

Hope this helps somewhat,

my engagement party is going to be rather large too and we are having ours at the same location i had my birthday party

take a look at some of the halls that are around 150 or less because often times they dont have bookings, try the off season and fridays are always cheaper than saturdays

there are actually a lot of halls that are not as well known and because of that they have lower pricing you just have to do your research

 

also the city depends a lot so good luck
