Me and the finance have been engaged for a year now, we wanted a two year engagment to save as we are funding the wedding without any help. My question is since we have not really introduced our families together and our having a Destination Wedding which will involve them all being there for a long weekend, should we now have an engagement party? I was thinking something casual or at a favorite resurant. any advice is helpful!

@tonysbabyg: I think that’s a great idea. =) We had an engagement BBQ about 7 months after our engagement and our wedding was still over a year away. It was a lot of fun and it was nice to get our families together to meet.

I agree that its definitely a good idea. We were in the same situation where neither of our families had met and this was the perfect place to introduce everyone. It was also an amazing evening. My Future Sister-In-Law was actually just talking about how great it was last night and its been 7 months since we had it.

it is a nice way for everyone to meet family and friends.

Do it. You don’t want for the family to be meeting at the rehearsal dinner.
