Ok...kind of a long story here. My FH and I have been together for almost 4 years. We have one son together and another on the way (due in july!!). We aren't technically engaged yet (or at least engaged how others see as engaged ie no ring) but we are planning a wedding for April 2011. He plans on getting the ring in May once we finish paying off some bills. So we are kinda on a time limit here. First off we won't be "engaged" til May, then I will be pregnant thru July. By the time we are able to actually have some sort of engagement party it would be september... only 8 months before the wedding. Do you think that is too close to the wedding to have an engagement party? I really do want to have one for the whole wedding experience and to introduce the bridal party and all that. But I just don't know if people would bother considering only like 6months later they will be attending a bridal shower and then 8 months will be attending the wedding.
Let me know what you think
