A group of our family friends threw us a big grown-up engagement party this January, but right after we got engaged last January, we had an un-official dinner/celebration with our friends.

Maybe! I’d really like to go out to dinner with our families because they haven’t met yet. I have no idea if we’ll do anything with friends–or rather, my friends. For all I know they could by scattered across the country at that point.

My FI’s parents gave us a really great engagement party. I tell everyone – before the party, I was sorta “Meh” about it, but afterward I was so happy and grateful. It was a wonderful, low-pressure time and we felt so honored.

I’d like to have a little engagement party but with families only. Our parents have never met and they live in 2 different states with my bf in another state….sooooo…not sure how realistic that would be.

My mom has already told me she will throw me one once we are officially engaged.

well a strange thing happened in that we had already planned to have a housewarming party, and my now FH proposed the weekend before. it served as a very unofficial engagement party, but not sure if we’ll do a real one since his family lives in ME and VA and we aren’t sure when they’ll be in twon next. i don’t really want to do one but won’t say no if people offer to throw us one!

I know that I would really like to have some sort of get-together to celebrate!  I think it’s one of the coolest ways to “revel in the love” that gets magnified when you get engaged.  Friends, family – friends and family…it matters not to me!  Laughing

I highly doubt anything big, but possibly something small.

Probably not. I figure everyone will be like “it’s about time” and just carry on!

We had a dinner with our families.  There was cake and a few presents.  That’s all we needed.
