Customs and Traditions
So, it seems to me that no one is planning on throwing us an engagement party. I don't really blame anyone, bc my parents are too busy paying for the wedding itself! My FI and I were thinking of having our own. We're in our final semesters in college and were thinking of having one just for our friends. It would obviusly be a college-y get together. We go to school in La Crosse, which is where Oktoberfest USA is, so we were going to do an Oktoberfest party, which would inclube a lot of drinking and craziness and my parents don't drink or anything.First of all, is it tacky to throw your own engagement party? Secondly, is it weird to do it just for friends, not family?
