Now it’s time to celebrate your love with an engagement party. But before you give yourself a heart attack over extravagant venues and lavish catering, calm down and take a deep breath.

5 Fun and Affordable Engagement Party Ideas

1. Backyard Bonanza

Gather your loved ones around a crackling fire for an intimate and cozy celebration. Roast marshmallows for s’mores, share stories under the stars and play classic games like charades or cornhole. 

Keep things potluck-style with everyone bringing a dish or drink to share, and set up a DIY s’mores station for extra fun. String lights, lanterns, and cozy throws will create a magical atmosphere.

2. Picnic in the Park

Pack a basket full of delicious finger foods, sandwiches, salads, and fruits, and head to your favorite scenic park for a laid-back afternoon. 

Play frisbee, have a picnic blanket decorating contest, or simply relax and enjoy the fresh air and good company. Live music adds a festive touch, and mason jars filled with wildflowers make charming decorations.

3. Board Game Extravaganza

Set up a variety of board games for everyone to enjoy, from classics like Monopoly and Scrabble to trendy new releases. Have mini-tournaments or themed games based on your shared interests. 

Order pizza or set up a snack bar with chips, popcorn, and candy. Coffee, tea, and soft drinks keep the energy flowing, while colorful dice and game pieces scattered around add a playful touch.

4. Movie Night Under the Stars

Cuddle up under the stars for a romantic movie night experience. Set up a projector and screen in your backyard or a friend’s space, and get comfy with pillows, blankets, and chairs. 

Vote on a movie together or choose a romantic-themed selection. Make it extra special with a DIY popcorn bar featuring different toppings, fairy lights, and movie posters to add a touch of cinema magic.
