Do it! Do it! Do it!


My Fiance and I planned our own potluck, casual get together on the beach as our engagement party. It doesn’t have to have anything more formal than a few friends getting together for beer and cake.

We got engaged in January 2012 and our engagement party was July 2012, so that was a little more than 7 months after the fact.

It was amazingly fun even if we planned it ourselves. We live far away from both our families and so it was a reason to celebrate our happiness with our Honolulu family.


I say go for it! If your Future Mother-In-Law wants to throw it, go for it! I don’t think there are any formal conventions that need to be observed. Just enjoy.

I went to an engagement party two weeks ago. They got engaged last summer and getting married this coming March. It was a backyard bbq. We had so much fun! I think it doesn’t matter when you do it as long as it’s not too close to your wedding. If your engagement party, bridal shower, and wedding are too close to each other, I think people would be skck of gifting…. Just my thought cuz me, I cannot go to any of those parties without a gift!!!
