The engagement party is when you officialy get engaged. Even now you are technically not suppose to wear the engagement ring until the engagement party.

There is actually a couple different steps to the entire process of getting engage. In the American culture, sometimes the guy ask the father for permission. In the Vietnamese culture, it is actually the women of the family that goes and ask for permission from the other family. This is even before the engagement is to happen.

This page definitely helps with some things concerning the engagement party. Also check out Mrs. Hot Wings and Mrs. Perfume, they definitely have helpful hints.

Let me know if you have any questions, I will try my best to answer them considering now that I am part of the 2nd generation to get married in the US.

My FH is Vietnamese also *fist bump* and even though his parents are very traditional, we didnt actually do an engagement party. They really didnt seem to mind. Although, his family has not met mine, so itll be a little strange when they finally meet at the wedding, but whatever!

@Ceyx54:  Hi! Did you already have your Vietnamese engagement ceremony? Ours is in a few weeks and we’re using that as a proposal (so we’re not technically engaged as of now). It is of huge significance to the Vietnamese side, especially the older generations. Traditionally, not only do the families meet, but his family is essentially promising that their son will marry you. If you already had the ceremony, I’d love to hear how it went! 🙂

@Ceyx54:  Very cool! I’ve heard of many couples who have the tea ceremony the morning of or a week or two before the wedding. Although, I’m learning from FH’s family that the engagement ceremony is different from the wedding tea ceremony. But I agree with you, it seems very fun and I can’t wait! I’ll definitely let you know how it went.

I’m sure you’ll be beautiful in the red dress and gold crown! I went with that color combo for my wedding ensemble and pink and gold for the engagement ceremony.

Having the engagement the day before the wedding is getting more popular especially with some families living so far from each other. But it would definitely be jammed pack weekend with doing that. Since engagement, then tea ceremony then wedding all in the same weekend.
