Beyond Engagement Function Venue – Aspects to Consider

Your wedding may be the biggest and best celebration you’ll ever have, but it needn’t come at the expense of your engagement party. Recently betrothed couples like nothing more than to share their happiness with loved ones at a fun and fabulous event. If you want an affordable engagement function venue that is set in beautiful surrounds, serves delicious food and beverages and can organise entertainment, look no further than Harbour Kitchen at Docklands.

We can take care of all the hard aspects of your day, but there are a few things to consider that will help you get the most out of your special event.

Day or Night

In the past engagement parties generally evening affairs, but there is no reason why you can’t break with tradition. Night time events are always great for letting your hair down and dancing the night away after the more civilised celebrations have taken place. At a magical engagement function venue such as Harbour Kitchen though, a daytime event can be just as memorable. Choose the time and date that best suits you and let us take care of the rest.


An integral part of almost any celebration is the cake, and an engagement party is no exception. It’s almost impossible to please all the people all the time, but you can get close. Consider asking guests what flavour they fancy and opt for the most popular choice. Happy tastebuds generally equal happy guests.


Music is one of the best ways to set the tone of any event. You might chose to hire a live act to create an energetic atmosphere or opt for a playlist of your favourite tunes. Again, you might want to ask your guests for suggestions to keep the party fun an inclusive. Whatever your preference, Harbour Kitchen will ensure you have everything you need on your special day or night. That’s one of the reasons why we are regarded as Melbourne’s premiere engagement function venue.
