    @shaka:  +1  Exactly.

    @Anna10-05-2014:  If you want to go to the engagement party, then go.  If you don’t, then don’t.  If you can afford to bring a gift and want to, then do.  If you can’t, then don’t.  It’s pretty simple.

     I say card and wine. It may not have been the couple being rude, the person hosting the party might have done it unbidden.

    Also consider that if you are invited to the engagement party, you will be invited to the wedding, unless they are beyond the pale. You can shop from the registry in that event!

    I wouldn’t go. I’d buy a nice bottle of wine or two with a card, put it in a pretty bag and give it to her at work with some excuse of why you can’t attend.

    @Anna10-05-2014:  I really don’t see a big problem with the registry info being on the invitation (I see it a lot so I guess most people don’t know this rule) BUT if it’s truely an engagement party and not a shower, I wouldn’t bring a gift. Add that to the idea that they are inviting people to the party who aren’t invited to the wedding and I wouldn’t be going at all, much less sending a gift.
