A friend of mine had her engagement party in april and she got married in June (Got engaged for Christmas). Another friend of mine did not think she needed an engagement party. Like yourself, she thought she didn’t need the extra expenses.  Her Future Mother-In-Law kind of pulled through at the last minute and they had a backyard casual style engagement party. Really, it all depends on you. If you do not want an engagement party, then its not mandatory. Simple explain to your Future Mother-In-Law that you do not have the money for it right now. In which case, if she really wants you to have a party, she will throw you one herself (she pays). If not, there is always the option of maybe getting together with the rest of his family and having a casual back yard BBQ of some sort to meet everyone. It doesn’t need to be sometime fancy. Heck, if you want, go for the casual backyard BBQ and label it as an engagement party. Free gifts right? 😉

@future.mrs.campfield:Well, since the wedding is in May, you could have BBQ closer to the wedding date if weather allows. If not, what the heck, go for a winter party. Could be fun!
