I need some advice…
Both friends and family members have offered to throw parties for my fiance and I which is super nice and generous. The way things worked out, the party thrown by friends will be first, in November. It will be an engagement party and friends and cousins our age will be invited. The family party will be a couple of months later in January and will be aunts, uncles, cousins and closest friends. My question is: should both parties be “engagement” parties? Cousins and close friends will be invited to both so it seems weird to have two. However, if the second one thrown by aunts/uncles will be a “couples shower” I’m afraid it might seem tacky that we are having a “shower” (which implies presents, not my intentions) with them but not an engagement party?
Am I thinking about this too much? I don’t want to be tacky but I think it’s a little weird to have two engagement parties. The other option would be not to label the party and have the invitation read “A party in celebration of…”
Advice please, thanks!
