What is the longest period after he proposes that it would be believable that we are holding an engagement party? (Trying to plan a surprise wedding, but want to make sure that the reason we are asking people to gather is believable)

I got engaged in December and we had our engagement party in August. You could plan a surprise wedding in 8 months for sure!

Personally, I’d be suspicious of an engagement party happening any later than 6 months after the proposal, but I’m naturally a suspicious person 🙂 One thing to consider, though, is that people might be more likely to attend a wedding than an engagement party, which could adversely affect your guest list and hurt the feelings of those who would have attended, had they known what was actually happening.
