FI’s parents are throwing us an engagement party this weekend. It’s a pretty casual affair, a backyard bbq/pool party with about 75 family members in attendance.
His mom said something like, “you two might want to say something at the party.” Are we supposed to give a little speech? What do we say? Did you guys say anything at your parties?

I dont think you HAVE to, but you can if you want.

It’s really up to you. I’m going to prepare a speech for my party but I don’t think it’s totally necessary.

My family threw my FI and I an engagement party, and at it my father said a few words. My FI’s family also threw us an engagement party and at that one the priest gave a blessing. I think so long as somone is addressing the occasion and thanking everyone for coming, you’re ok. It doesn’t have to be you guys, but someone should do it.
