When should you have an engagement party?
Posted: Jul 8, 2010 8:30 PM

I am not planning it my parents are, but I was wondering how far in advance you are supposed to have the party. We are getting married in Sept 2012 (we got engaged in June). It is far away but we are definately actively planning. We are seeing venues in a couple of weeks.

I am confused as to when the engagement party is supposed to be as our engagement is on the long side.

Dear Kate,

The engagement party announces the engagement. Thus, it should take place shortly after the engagement starts.

It may be an open secret, but supposedly the lady's parents invites friends to a party, then gets everyone's attention and makes the surprise announcement.
