Right after my fiance and I got engaged, I had a dear friend who was very happy for us and wanted to host an engagement party for us at her new home. I accepted the offer and thought it was so sweet of her to volunteer to host something.
We're planning the party, and it turns out she wants to invite over total strangers (my FI and I have never met, people like her coworkers) to the party to show off her new home. She doesn't see anything wrong with the fact that my FI and I have never met these people before.
My thought is that she is using our engagement party as an opportunity for a housewarming as well. I
Am I overreacting by thinking total strangers at our engagement party is inappropriate? (Since it is her house)
I found out she also plans on inviting these people even if we move the party to a restaurant. I am inclined to say no thank you to the party and offer to attend a housewarming party for her instead and have my function in a different place.
What would you do?
Due June 21 2013 with our first!
