Hi! I am having a rather large engagement party that my family IS hosting (parents,grandparents & godparents) my fiancé and I asked to help them pay for decorations etc... We are having it in September of this year. Labor day weekend. I have two questions: 1) Since it is a holiday weekend do we send out some kind of save the date to ensure our out of state friends/family are able to make travel plans?
2) How do we word our invitations? Since multiple family members are helping with costs?
And before anyone else carries on that it's tacky or improper to "help or actually throw" your own engagement party you can save your fingers from typing a rude response. My family decided to host this because we have family members that are close to us that we don't know if they will make it to our wedding! And my fiance and I feel that we should help with the cost. Thank you!:)
