    Have him throw you a fun couples shower! You’ve been engaged for a while, so it wouldn’t be what you are celebrating. Your upcoming wedding would be.

    I think it’s a little late for an engagement party since you have been engaged for a while and the party will happen so close to the wedding.  Maybe you could wait until the end of the summer and have a pre-wedding party?  Not necessarily a shower (unless you wanted it to be one) but more of a "let’s introduce the families and friends to each other before the big day."  I think engagament parties are often held to introduce families and make everyone comfortable with their new relatives.  I don’t see why your party couldn’t have the same intentions, and just be worded differently on the invitation.

    Things were busy and most people who know you will know that! My sisters baby came early and things were totally nutty! there is still plenty of time to have one! just do it before your showers start …

    We are getting married in 2 1/2 months and we are having a small engagement party with our closest friends in mid May. It’s more of a time to thank them for their help and celebrate us getting all the "big stuff" planned.

    I say go for it!

    I don’t think that’s too close at all. I’ve seen engagement parties done a year in advance or 3/4 months in advance. Have fun!

    My FMIL wanted to throw a second reception for guests in her town that won’t be able to travel for the wedding…but timing isn’t working out.  So it’s now going to be a few weeks before the wedding and she’s calling it an "engagement" party.  Though my FI is not Indian, it’s actually really common in India to have the engagement party like a week before the wedding.  I don’t think it’s ever too late, whatever you want to call it.
