You don’t have to do either of those things. It’s not rude at all.

We didn’t do either. It’s definitely not rude at all.

We didn’t do it and it was a nonissue 🙂

I think in lots of cases engagement parties are just another way to have the spotlight a little longer. Nothing wrong with that per se, but it’s definitely not rude to forego the announcements or party.


When people start getting wedding invitations, I think they’ll catch on 😉

We didn’t do a formal announcement, turned down an offer of having an engagement party thrown for us, and didn’t do engagement pictures. We’re married now but I didn’t miss not doing any of those things.

In the past, NO ONE did engagement announcements or had engagement parties. It is a non-issue. They are not required, and indeed, I think it may be a relief to many of your guests that there will be one less made-up “event” to attend.
