Helloooo fellow Bees,
My FH and I will be having our Engagement Party in about 3 weeks and I was just wondering if people normally give gifts at these things? My mom and aunt (and a few other websites/blogs) are saying that we need to register beforehand…and some people are saying you don’t?? I’m just a little confused…
We aren’t really expecting people to bring gifts (nor are we asking them to); I just wanted to make sure before the day came along.

Some people will likely bring gifts, but I wouldn’t start a registry yet.

I recieved a few gifts but didn’t register and would recommend waiting until before the bridal shower to do so.

I only got a couple gifts at mine and had not registered. I don’t think people are expecting you to register this early.

We had an intimate e-party for our wedding party, and we received a few gifts…..a 3 gift cards and a really nice bottle of champagne.

I always bring a gift to an engagement party. If the couple has a registry, at least I know I am getting something they want. If they don’t, I usually give something like a platter or something kind of universal, that many people would probably like and be able to use.

At our engagement party, we received a few gifts, but nothing off our registry (we registered because my shower is coming up soon, not for the e-party specifically). I think in your case it is too early to register (many of your items will be discontinued by the time your shower/wedding rolls around) and it might seem presumptuous.
