    I don’t see why you shouldn’t throw the engagement party yourself, as an engagement party isn’t really a gift giving event as such. A potluck sounds great to me, but I really like potlucks! 🙂

    I think its totally fine to host the party yourselves. But I would be hesitant to ask people to bring food. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good potluck but I feel like they are usually done for community events, not a personal celebration. I hope this doesn’t come off snotty, I don’t mean for it to be.

    I think that both ideas are awesome!  Overall, the party really needs to reflect your style.  My FI and I are doing a dessert party (potluck style) in our own home.  We want our wedding to be laid back and fun and we think that treating the e party like any casual celebration will introduce our wedding style to our friends and family!  I’m sure whatever you decide will be really fun and personal and that is all that matters!  Cheers!
