My fiance and I aren't getting married until March of 2012, when we will both be done with college and such. Therefore, we would like to have an engagement party since our wedding date is so far off, and my sister has offered to host. We have tentativly decided on a cookout in May.
Anyways, my wedding guest list will be about 150 so I was thinking around 50 E-Party guests, just family and close friends. However, about half of our friends and family fall into a strict southern Baptist no drinking group, while the other half are okay with beer and wine, like me and my fiance.
That being said, do you think we should have two E-Parties? One with friends that's alcohol friendly (not a drunken rager, just some beer with the burgers and champagne for toasting) and another dry E-Party that's family oriented?
TIA for the advice!
