I just have a couple of questions and concerns about Engagement Parties...
I have never been to one, so I have no idea what to expect.
Is it ok for my SO and I to host the E-Party?
Who is usually invited?
Is a potluck picnic tacky?
How much notice should be given? (No out of state guests for this)
My So and I were hoping to use this as a chance for our families to meet one another. We were thinking of having it on a Saturday next month. Because of this we were just going to call and invite guests, and set up a Facebook Page (Invite only) with details.
We wanted to have a potluck picnic at a forest preserve, but my mother thinks it is a bit tacky.
Our other idea was to have someplace like Corner Bakery cater it, or if we get a grill in time then we could host a BBQ at our home. (I want to avoid this though, because we just moved, and have a serious lack of furnature.)
