Yup. I kinda wanted one, but we’re not going to have one. No big deal. 

Relatives can throw you one if you really want one. Do you have a sister or a close female cousin?

We didn’t have one. I would bet only about 30% of people have them.

I didn’t really have one, and by that I mean – Everyone congradulated us on our engagement at his Doctorate Graduation Dinner and did toast and we didn’t have to pay for a very expensive dinner. But we didn’t get gifts or anything

Ya, I don’t know anyone that’s had an engagement party either- although I do wish I could host our own withuot seeming gift grabby or an etiquitte snub… It would probably be different if we had any family nearby.

I really wanted one, and we did not get one. I was a little surprised, actually, but whatever.

Nope we are not having one. No one offered and I don’t really care if I had one or not.

We aren’t having one either. I have a lot of friends but nobody has mentioned it. Also, he is in the military and doesn’t have many friends at all. His family is 5 hours away. I’m not that bummed about it.

I don’t know anyone who had on either. We got engaged Monday and we already talked about not having one! You’re not alone 🙂

We didn’t really have one.  After we got engaged, we did meet with some friends for dinner, but that was it.  Nothing fancy, no gifts.  Just a congrats and full tummies.  I also don’t know anyone that has had one.

All of my close friends had E-parties, and we did too.  My Maid of Honor was all over it, about an hour after I got engaged, she offered.  🙂  We didn’t do gifts, though, just had some friends over to celebrate.

I never even heard of engagement parties to I came to WB. They are not common in our area at all. I do not know a single couple that has had one and I typically attend at least 5 or 6 weddings a year.

Yes! I wanted one too! 🙁 We had a small one for my sister when she got engaged and even though she’s my MOH she didnt offer to throw me one. They are not very common where I live but I still would have been thrilled to have one.
