We haven’t set a date yet. It looks like we will be looking at Late 2013 to mid 2014. When does the engagement party happen? I’ve heard its supposed to be within a few months of the engagement, but does that still hold true when our wedding may end up being two years away?

I would say have the engagement party now. It should be closer to the engagement, not the wedding. It’ll be a good way for your families to meet and start forming relationships if they haven’t already. Congrats!

Hey :). The general rule is just that the engagement party happens closer to the engagement then the wedding. If I were you… I would just keep it on this “half” of the engagement, if that makes sense. Good luck!

I’d still have your engagement party sooner rather than later. Maybe within the next few months? It’s still celebrating your engagement. You’ll have plenty of showers and parties and things to mark the latter half of your engagement. 🙂

I was having the same debate because we were originally thinking about getting married Nov/ Dec 2013 with the engagement party Sept 2012. What I read was that if you’re having a longer engagement, the engagement party can be like a “kick-off” for the wedding planning. Not sure if you’re starting to plan right away though.
