I wouldn’t think it weird, you might even say something like ‘another chance to celebrate halloween’.

In my opinion it’s a good idea, and it’s better (being your engagement party) not to have it on haloween day cause in that case it’ll be more about halloween than about your engagement (I swear that makes sense in my head).

@Crabbabs:  You can just call it a costume party instead of Halloween.  But I think you can still use Halloween candies since it’s a fall theme.

I’d say past Hallowe’en is too late, yes, because the whole point of it is the demons and monsters go away on November 1st. I’d say it’s never too early though, so all of October is fine but November, no, I never would. Plus, November 5th!!! That is a whole different celebration over here but I guess you guys don’t have Bonfire Night! Shame because that would be a mega-romantic engagement party with fireworks and snuggles 🙂

Coming from someone who absolutely LOVES Halloween, I would probably think it was a little weird…actually no, weird isn’t the right word.  I guess I’d feel like it was over…it’s like having a Christmas party in January?

Our honeymoon extends over Halloween, and I’m really upset I won’t get to have a Halloween party this year, so I’m saving it for next.  Why not just have this your engagement/housewarming party, and save Halloween for next year?

I wouldn’t really find it weird, as long as it was RIGHT after Halloween.

Non-Hallowe’en decorations then! Bunting? Pirate decorations? Beach party?

It’s a little after the fact. But what about celebrating the Day of the Dead. It starts on November 1 and goes through the second. The decorations and the sugar skulls are beautiful and keeping with the spooky theme. It’s kinda different too. Just a thought.

It could be a Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) costume party… Day of the Dead is 11/01 & 11/02
