My fiance and I got engaged 12/26 and we want to have a pub crawl on 4/1 (1pm-into the night) where friends, coworkers, etc are invited to come and go as they please throughout the day, based on their schedule. No pressure and very casual!
We have a small budget and can't invite a lot of friends/coworkers to the actual wedding and thought this would be a great idea. Our family doesn't live near us so I thought it would be fine for friends only and just make a facebook event. We probably wouldn't announce it as an engagement party, but more like - "we're engaged, we love you all and want to see you and have fun and celebrate"
What are everyone's thoughts on this? I've heard you're not supposed to throw anything for yourself or invite people to engagement bashes that aren't invited to the wedding...
