I don’t think so, no. You hosted them at a party, so there’s nothing to formally thank them for unless they gave a gift. They will likely bring a gift to the wedding, after which you will have the opportunity to thank them for something in a more formal capacity.

@cupcakesxoxo:  Nope.  

Actually, all your guests should technically be writing you a thank you card….thanking you for hosting.  🙂

You don’t need to send a “thank you for coming to my party” thank you.  🙂

No, I don’t think for an engagement party you need to.  I think for a wedding, it’s a courtesous thing to do, but an engagement party, which is much less formal, does not require you to thank your guests for their attendance in a written card (when you obviously thanked them for coming at your event in person).

@cupcakesxoxo:  Nope you have already thanked them both verbally at the reception, and through the provision of food, drink and merriment.

To send a note CAN be considered fishing for gifts.
