Hi, new to the knot and got engaged in July.
my future mother in law is throwing us an engagement party. since my fiance's brother got engaged last year, the FMIL is basically just having us follow in their footsteps (party is at the same place that theirs was). This is totally fine, i am grateful to be having a party, but the thing that bothers me is that fiance's brother registered before the engagement party and they received gifts, and now fiance wants us to register too. I find this rude as our wedding is a little over a year from the date of the party, and I think it is too early to register. Thoughts? Another thing that I was wondering about is that fiance's brother didn't really invite any friends to their party, so I guess it is assumed that we wont either. I know this party is being thrown for me so I guess I shouldnt really have an opinion, but I was kind of hoping to celebrate with a few close friends as well. The friends will be at the wedding, so it would be nice if both families could meet them.
thanks in advance for the advice
