5 Cool and Classy Ways to Celebrate Your Engagement

Get Higher

Everyone can say that one time or another they have thought about what it would be like to fly. So why not pair that exhilarating and whimsical thought with your engagement party? Rent a hot air balloon and invite the closest people in your life to drift across the Brisbane River and rejoice in your engagement. Pack a picnic and some bubbly and really make a day of it.

Enliven the senses

Create an exclusive event for your friends and family to not only celebrate your engagement, but to get to know each other as well. Arrange a private wine tasting at a beautiful winery or book a group cooking class. Whichever way you go you are sure to have a great time as we all know that food and wine are the essence of good living.

Give it a theme

It is true that the core of any good engagement party is great wine and delicious food so why not add a theme to it as well? Creating a reason for dressing up enlivens the spirit of the party and gets people involved. Your guests can have fun with the costumes and whether they get it right on or very wrong it will still give them something to talk about and more reasons to smile.

Take it up a notch

Your parents may have just had the patio re-done, but sometimes class just doesn?t translate into a backyard barbeque. Hire out a penthouse suite in a luxury Brisbane hotel and organise a caterer. Give yourself a treat and lots of excuses to not have to worry about the hosting duties and focus on celebrating with your loved ones.

Get the party started

Go one step further for those of you who really like to let your hair down when you celebrate. Your engagement is a special occasion and what better way to revel in the moment than with a DJ. Hire a room in a nightclub or reserve an area of your favourite bar to while away the evening and dance the night away with your closest friends and family. Your new engagement ring will be the perfect accessory for the disco ball scene.
