Have you considered hosting an engagement party brunch? After all, it's pretty much everybody's favorite meal, and often more affordable than a dinner party. We've compiled 10 delicious recipes for you to make to celebrate your favorite engaged couple.

Savory Scones

Some people just aren't sugar people. And as much as we don't understand those people, we still think you ought to have something on hand for them. These apple, sage, and gruyere scones (below, left) are so rich you don't need to add anything to them. Although we think either a bit of jalapeno or tart cherry jam would be amazing.
