Personally i think the ship has sailed. The dinner is usally an announcement of your engagement. By now everyone ( i would hope) knows that you are engaged. But if you just wanted to have a party i dont see why not!

Maybe not an “engagement dinner”, I wonder if there’s anything else you could call it? Almost just like a celebratory, we picked a wedding date thing?! Or you could always do it anyway and forget about how long it’s been … a party is a party 😉

I agree — maybe host it and call it simething else (like a yay we’re starting the wedding planning dinner) but an engagement dinner is usually within 6 months of being engaged maximum so calling it that may be a little strange since the family has likely already ‘celebrated’ your engagement. But a party with both sides of the family is never a bad thing so I would encourage you to do it for sure! 🙂

I had one late. Everyone knew we were engaged but I wanted our families to meet. Everyone was excited & had a good time
