My FIL want to throw us an engagement party. We got engaged in Dec 2010 and our wedding will be March 2012. They are thinking about having a backyard BBQ and for the sake of the weather they are considering having it in warmer months like May or June of this year.
At that time we will have been engaged for 5 or 6 months. Is that too long for an engagement party? Or is it too close to the wedding being almost halfway through the engagement?
