I would maybe consider doing it after the wedding and calling it your “at home reception.” More and more Destination Wedding or eloping couples are doing this and I feel like it lends itself towards gift giving, whereas an engagement party is typically a purely social event without the anticipation of gifts. Either is kind of a “gray area” since traditional wedding gifts usually come from guests who were invited to the wedding. I feel that the AHR may be more of what you’re looking for. Plus, you could show pics of your beautiful private ceremony!

@byrdi:  I think when others have asked about similar situations most people say it is tacky to want gifts at an engagement party but you can do whatever you want and is accepted in your social circle accepts. Here in the NY area I dont see people doing this but if it is your close fam and friends maybe it is ok in the Cali area?
