Where to Host Engagement Parties, Proposals and More in Greenville, South Carolina

Whether you’re planning a surprise marriage proposal or you’re looking for a place to host an engagement party, Greenville has lots of great options! 

Planning Your Proposal in Greenville

If you want to stun your sweetie with a view of the city down below, then a rooftop engagement at UP on the Roof is the perfect choice.  The staff at UP on the Roof can help you arrange the perfect proposal with everything from candles and rose petals to a chilled bottle of bubbly by the fire.  And for those who are looking for a more ceremonious engagement, we can help arrange to have friends and family waiting out-of-sight to surprise the newly engaged couple and toast their future together.

If the idea of getting engaged on the rooftop isn’t quite your style, opt for a more low-key proposal, surrounded by nature at Falls Park on the Reedy and then stop by UP on the Roof for a celebratory drink or make a night of it with dinner at the downtown outpost of Ruth’s Chris Steak House and a hotel stay at the Embassy Suites at Riverplace.

Or if you already have plans to get engaged near Verdae or Spartanburg and don’t want to make the trek downtown to celebrate, make reservations for dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steak House at I-385. This is the original Ruth’s Chris in Greenville and they are known for their romantic steakhouse atmosphere.

Greenville Venues for Elegant Engagement Parties

Typically hosted by the parents of the bride and/or the groom, an engagement party officially kicks off the couple’s wedding celebrations and is usually hosted within three months of the couple getting engaged.  There are no set rules for what an engagement party should look like – just that it should reflect the bride- and groom-to-be. 

Engagement Parties at UP on the Roof

For those who are looking for an on-trend venue, consider the rooftop terrace at UP on the Roof.  Known for their creative cocktails, a unique menu and unparalleled views of downtown Greenville and the Reedy River, UP on the Roof can create a truly one-of-a-kind event.

Formal Engagement Parties and Dinners at Ruth’s Chris in Greenville

If a more formal dinner is what you have envisioned for the engagement party, consider a private room at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in downtown Greenville.  This is a great idea for a smaller engagement party as it allows everyone to enjoy more intimate conversations while seated at a table over a celebratory meal.

And last, but not least, if you want to host a more casual engagement party for a larger group, followed by dinner for just the families, consider hosting your event in one of the banquet spaces at the Crowne Plaza at Roper Mountain Road and then stay and enjoy dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steak House at I-385.  This is a particularly great arrangement if families haven’t met before, as it allows everyone to mingle with friends and loved ones before breaking bread with your soon-to-be in-laws.
