How to Throw a Surprise Engagement Party


You now have to surprise two people instead of one, and make sure no one gives the surprise away. Enlist help from the couple's family and friends and the party will be a huge success.

  • Invite the closest family and friends of the bride and groom-to-be. Engagement parties are a way for the couple's friends and family to come together and mingle.

  • Enlist the help of as many people as you can, as this will make the surprise engagement party easier to throw. Have at least someone from the groom-to-be's family and someone from the bride-to-be's family assist in planning the surprise party.

  • Find a location for the party. It can be at someone's home or at a restaurant. Someone's home is ideal, because you can always have the host invite the engaged couple for dinner or lunch. But if you have it at a restaurant, you can always have a conspirator invite them to dinner there.

  • Set a date, but check with the engaged couple first to see when they are available. Of course, whomever approaches the engaged couple needs to arrange a date far enough in advance that you can send invitations.

  • Send out invitations if time permits. If there isn't enough time to make and mail invitations, you can always start a phone chain and get everyone there that way. Either way, one of the top priorities is to let people know the party is a surprise.

  • Yell "Surprise!" and have your camera ready when the moment is ripe. If you've done your work and the party is truly a secret, the couple's expression will be priceless. Don't forget the cameras.

Tips & Warnings

  • It may be easier to throw a surprise engagement party for the bride-to-be and have the groom-to-be in on the party.
