    No, engagment parties are to announce the engagement. Showers are when the Bride is given gifts. You know, “shower with gifts”.

    No wedding invite, no present imho. That’s kinda crappy anyway.

    At the minimum, for good office relations, get *at least* a card, and I strongly suggest contemplating getting something else as well (even if small).  My old coworker was pissed that a friend (or maybe a family friend) showed up at an engagement party without even a card.  I think she said pp cost was over $30 (her wedding was well upwards of $50K, she had expensive tastes).  She held it in her hometown, across the country from the wedding, so a lot went to it but not the wedding.  If the bride is chill, she may not care, but my old officemate certainly did!

    don’t worry about why she invited you. If I had to guess, I would suspect that she invited you only so you didn’t feel bad cuz she invited everyone else at work!

    @red_rose:  that’s what I was thinking!  I have done this before…invited someone at work to come to something just because I didn’t want word getting around that they were they ONLY one not invited.

    I would get her a card, then at least if everyone else brings a gift you won’t look bad 🙂  No one will know what’s in the card except for her!  And I’m sure she wouldn’t expect a gift since you aren’t invited to her wedding.

    I invited my co workers to my engagement party to be held in August. I’m not expecting any gifts but I’d gladly accept any gifts they decided to bring.
