My first instinct would be bride-to-be as you’re not quite a bride yet! However at all of my wedding related appointments I’ve been referred to by the vendor as the ‘bride’ so hmmmmmmm hard to say. I wonder if any etiquette experts have any clues?!

@teacherandageek:My first thought leans toward saying “bride to be”, but when putting the whole sentence together it sounds a little wordy to me. “… at the Bride-to-be’s home”

“Bride’s home” sounds a little more clean.

And after all, you are the bride. :o)

Since it is an engagement, “Bride-to-be” – it is early on and you are in the early planning stages, etc.    If it were later events like the bridal shower or rehearsal dinner, then use “Bride”.

that’s a pretty interesting question… hmmm.. at what point exactly do we become “the bride?” When we wake up on the day of our wedding?

Technically you’re a “bride to be” but I think people will get who you mean if you just put “bride”, and I think “bride’s house” sounds better.
