    Wow.  That was some run-on sentence.  I think what you're saying is that you're recently engaged (congrats and get used to calling him your fiance instead of your boyfriend Laughing).

    I think you're saying that you haven't yet set a date but your mom wants to throw you a party.  As retread said, it's poor etiquette to invite someone to a pre-wedding event who isn't invited to the wedding.  So I'd hold off on the e-party until you set a date, have a venue, and a fairly firm guest list.  (The venue size might change the size of your guest list which is why I suggest waiting until you have that in place.)

    An e-party is nice, but not at all a "must" in wedding world.  I'd err on the side of caution and skip the e-party unless you get the above things (date, venue, guest list) finalzed.

    Good luck to you and your FI.
