    We got engaged April 2011 and our friends and family threw us an engagment party in July 2011. We loved it!

    We didn’t have a party because my Fiance works out of town and the timing never worked out but I don’t mind! 🙂 There are enough celebrations coming up! We celebrated with our parents separately (his parents live out of town) when it was convenient.

    @kb7:  I’m sure it depends on your area.  Everyone has engagement parties (coed) and a bridal shower (just females).  My aunt threw mine, so when my cousin got married, my mom threw hers.  It’s nice to reciprocate!  We were engaged for a year and a half, and the engagement party was 4 months before the wedding.

    Here’s me at my shower (in the middle) with the hosting aunt (left) and godmother/aunt, who bought my wedding dress as a gift (left).

    We did.  We just had a bonfire at our house and lots of drinks.  Nothing wrong there!

    We didn’t have one, but it’s very uncommon around here. I don’t think I’ve ever attended one.
