we got engaged June 30 2018. Someone told me we had to know when/where our wedding was going to be by the engagement party.so we’ve been trying to figure out destination vs. in state and finally landed on doing it in state Bc my parents changed their mind on a destination wedding and was refusing to come. Anyways, now it’s November and we found a venue and will be getting married September 27, 2019. I was thinking of having an engagement party on Dec 1, 2018. Is it too late to have one? I’m just super bummed because our friends and family really don’t know eachother and I feel like we really didn’t get to celebrate with everyone and I would really like to. Also if we have one should we just invite local friends and family? Or also include those who we would invite to the wedding that live across the country in CA? We live in NJ/NYC.
thanks for any advice!
