@MissOwl: your idea sounds great to me 🙂 have a regular party at her house with a toast to you!

Congratz on having the ring!

Congrats on the ring! That is so exciting. I suggest asking her gently to not have an engagement party until you are formally engaged and have shared the news publicly with your family and friends. If she is a friend, I see no reason why she would not understand!

EDIT: I realize I totally misread your post. I’m sorry! I think that if she does want to throw a celebration for your engagement, perhaps you and your SO could take some time to discuss your guest list before throwing such a party. You certainly can call it something other than an engagement party, but I think guests will still think of it as an engagement party regardless.

Congrats on the Bling! =)

I would have her throw you a party! We made our Engagement picnic into a “Meet n Greet” for our families! It was awesome! The Engagement was just an excuse to get our families together! And after 7 years, it felt GREAT!

We too dont plan on inviting everyone we did to the picnic! And mostly the cousins of cousins and what have you!

Best of Luck and have fun with it!
