I think it’s totally odd to do an engagement party so far from the engagement and so close to the wedding!

How about you suggest a cool shower theme instead?  I wanted to have a “Stock the Bar” party where people bring you a bottle of alcohol to help stock the bar at the wedding.  It’s pretty cool because the guests ensure there is something for them to drink, it saves you money, and you get lots of variety!

I would just call it an engagement party….that way people won’t feel obligated to bring a gift…too many parties that require gifts makes it hard on guests….

that being said, we had our engagment party a couple weeks ago and we ended up getting gifts!  We didn’t expect anything though….

Since you’re having a shower in august, I think maybe it’ll be a little odd to have an engagement party in the same month. Maybe just have the party without labeling it an engagement party?
