@Cyclebride:  Congrats, beautiful ring! I would say do whatever you feel like, have it now or wait a few months!

Congrats! My mom wanted to throw us an engagment party, we kept telling her thanks but no thanks but finally I decided we might as well just let her do it since it would make her happy.  We didn’t see a need for it, but it worked out.  We got engaged September 2012 and had the engagement party this past march..just a little over 1 year from the wedding date.  If you don’t mind them throwing you one, than I say let them.  They’re excited for you…and the excitement is contagious!

@Cyclebride:  Yes! Tradiaitionally, other people throw the engagement party for the bride and groom, and within the first 3 months of being engaged. FI and I missed the boat since 90% of our friends/family are interstate and a lot of my friends here apparently think it’s the couple’s responsibility to throw the party. Bit disappointed tbh. Anyway, back to you  yes, definitely! Engagement parties should be not too long after getting engaged 🙂

Also, awesome ring. I like seeing non-traditional rings 🙂

Awe let them! They’re just excited for you and want to talk weddings so cmonnn!

My mom threw my DH and I a very informal e-party the day after we got engaged bc DH and I were long distance (london-CA) and we basically were on vacation and he proposed on a thursday night and we returned home on Friday and he was to leave beack to London on Saturday so it was just all in fun to celebrate our love and commitment and excitement about joining as a family.

I would just let them!  Its the little things in life and will be a nice memory and excuse to celebrate!
