I just got engaged last week and we are planning an engagement party. When should I have it? Sooner? or Later?

It's really a matter of personal preference. We were engaged in April and aren't getting married until 10-23-10. Our engagement party is 8-1-09 which will pretty much be the same time frame for my bridal shower next year as well. But it's totally up to you. We're throwing ours early since our families have never met we wanted to give them a chance to get to know each other a little bit. The same goes for our wedding party to get to meet one another since we are inviting them as well.

Hey there!
Congrats on the engagement!!!

I got engaged July 27th, 2008 and
our engagement party was Nov.8th 2008. I too was hesitant as far as
when to have the party. (esp since we're not getting married until 2010) They say it's customary to have it within 3 months or so of getting engaged (my best friend gave me some wedding etiquitte book lol). I do agree it really is just personal preference.
I do think sooner is better though! ...and why not! you should enjoy a fabulous party in your honor. You want to still be in that "OMG i can't believe we're engaged!" state of mind. lol

We had an intimate dinner reception at a really lovely restaurant for
just about 50 of our closest family and friends. Many of our relatives
still needed to meet and the party was a great way to bring everyone
together and share in our happiness. Making DIY invitations,
favors, arrangements and seating cards saved a lot and was great
practice for what's to come! So have fun planning, it's a big learning
experience, that's for sure! Let me know if you ever needed any planning tips!

Our engagement party is going to be in October of this year. It will be 6 months after our engagement and 6 months before the wedding.
