My fiance and I were engaged on Christmas Eve and it is now July, we did not send out engagement announcements nor did we have an engagement party. We called everyone and our family reached out, so basically everyone knows and I dont need an excuse to have yet another party. So I am wondering if it is completely rude to not do announcements or have a party? I’m over thinking I know!

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.

Thanks! I’m not the type that wants a million parties etc. I’m doing engagement photos for the simple fact that it comes in my photography package otherwise I probably wouldn’t.

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.

Yes! Thats how I was thinking too. There are so many parties nowadays to celebrate getting married, then the wedding, then parties even after the wedding. I definitely feel better about now doing all this extra stuff.

I haven’t done anyone of that, don’t really think it’s rude. If everyone has been told there’s no need for a big announcement or something. Now if you want to send it out because you like the idea then go for it but it’s not rude
