- Wedding: May 2014
I was always under the impression that engagement parties fell under the same rules as other pre-wedding parties: they are hosted by someone other than you, and whoever hosts pays. Based on other responses, my preconceptions may be incorrect, though.
We didn’t have an engagement party. They aren’t necessary.
Regardless, I wouldn’t invite guests to a party in my honor and then ask them to pay their own way.
