    Soooo awkward.

    I probably wouldn’t go just because its so last minute. 

    It kinda sounds like she’s nagging him now for a big celebration (that no one else has offered to host).

    @MrsEdamame:  That actually sounds like what one of my friends would write. I don’t find it awkward at all. It’s FB for goodness sakes, not a formal invite to the royal ball. Y’all are going barhopping. I don’t know why people think everything wedding related needs to be so prim and proper.

    @MrsEdamame:  “To me, it seems like she has rushed into proposing, and now somehow forcing him  to plan her an engagement party. It’s one of those things I wish I could somehow find a way to talk to him about  it, and just say “Whoa, what’s the rush?”

    It’s not your place to judge whether it’s a rush, or whether she pressured him into it. He’s an adult and he’s made his decision.

    Sounds like they are very casual people and he was trying to be funny. My only problem with it is the whole “throwing your own party” issue.

    I think you should go only if he promises to start listening to Grammar Girl every day.

    Kidding aside, if this guy is your friend you should go to support him.  No matter how the relationship seems to you, you don’t know what going on in their personal lives.  Obviously what they have makes him happy, otherwise he wouldn’t have proposed!  If you’re free, stop by and have a few drinks.  Maybe after getting to know the bride-to-be a bit better you’ll be happier about the engagement.

    So weird that he had to make it tomorrow, why couldn’t he have made it even a week later to give people more notice??

    The virginity comment sounds like he’s just joking around… it’s the last-minute part that would bother me. If they were close friends and I had no plans I might go, but I’m the type of person who needs a plan and a heads-up!

    @Missy_Star:  +1. He sounds like the idea literally just occured to him.

    Geez, and i was worried that sending out invited to an e party a month early wasnt enough time.

    id go out of pity, have too many drinks and hopefully liven up the (no doubt) weird and forced atmosphere.

    good luck to them though!
