Pre-wedding Parties


I've always wanted a engagement party, but no one offered to host one for us :( we've been engaged since September. Should I just host a small simple one at home? or let it go?


  • No.  You do not host your own engagement party.

    You can have a backyard bbq and invite family & friends, just don't call it an engagement party or reference anything about engagement.


  • There is no reason you can not plan a party to formally announce your engagement. 
    If you want it- then have it!!! 
    Don't worry about everyone else- this is YOUR time!
    The only thing I would suggest is to not include any registry information in your invitation. Keep it simple.

  • if you want one tell your bf how you feel and maybe she pass it along
  • Usually engagement parties are held within 3 to 6 months of the proposal.  I think you've missed your window, plus it's not appropriate to host your own e-party.  My advice is to let it go.  E-parties are not all that common.  Showers and bachelorette parties are, so you'll have that to look forward to.
