I just became engaged and have started the wonderful undertaking of... "ALL... THE... RESEARCH!"
One thing I can't seem to resolve in terms of etiquette, or an 'easy fix'
If the two families are from seperate states, where would one have the engagment party??? Or just no party at all??? Or... I mean we 'could' technically have just a dinner in each state for each family, but that defeats the purpose of families meeting.
It's unfortunately even trickier than that! The groom's parents are divorced, and the brides parents are deceased.
So what to do? Is it not 'worth' it in this case? Too many logistical nightmares?
Or is it something one would end up 'regretting' they never had? I mean, I only intend to get married once, so I kinda want to make the whole journey there count and all
So perplexed as to what might be done for this situation, any thoughts are much appreciated!!
