So, we’ve decided to let FF’s mom throw a traditional Vietmanese engagement party for us in GA. I’ve been reading up on it, and there seems to be a tradition of a “ring exchange.” I know that this is when SO will give me my engagement ring, but my question is this: do I buy him an engagement ring, as well? Or is this his future wedding band?
Any advice or clarification from Vietnamese brides would be much appreciated! 🙂 Thanks!

@Ceyx54: I think it could be the futrue wedding band. Just asI FMIL. I don’t believe there is an engagement ring for guys. I didn’t have an engagement party. I just had a tea ceremony for the wedding so we exchanged wedding bands.

I have never heard of a guy engagement ring being exchanged ever at the engagement party. Usually the engagement party is just for the families to get to know each other and for the prospective groom to officially ask for the bride hand in marriage.

Ok, thanks for the input! I won’t stress about it. 🙂 I’ll just ask FMIL if I need to do anything of that nature.
