We are not getting married until November 2013, but my parents are going to throw us an engagement party this summer. If we are having an adults only reception for the wedding what is the proper etiquette for inviting children to the engagement party. It is going to be a casual party in our backyard.

@duhjoy: You can invite the children to your engagement party. The etiquette rules don’t need to be in force for little ones.

I would invite the kids if you’re comfortable with that. I think people would rather be able to bring their kids to one event rather than have to find a sitter for two events for “etiquette” sake.
