Hmmm.. I dont know what the proper rules are but I see an engagement party as a celebration of the engagement… separate from a shower or wedding where is its celebrating the actual wedding. I think its okay to have a e-party and not feel obligated to invite all those guests to the wedding.

One of our co-workers got engaged about a month ago.  Knowing that she would not be able to invite everyone from the office, we all pitched in to throw her an engagement party this week.  They got eloped last weekend, so it’s more of a "wedding celebration" party, but nobody expected to be invited to the wedding just because they were invited to the engagement party.  I think you will be well within the bounds of good etiquette to have people at the engagement party who will not be invited to the wedding.
