So strange!! That’s the point of an engagement party, for the two sides of the family to meet, mingle, and congratulate one another.

@sassypants: Fiance should give contact information for your side of the family that you wish to invite. That way theres pointing fingers just a “hey, heres Mary Sue’s list of family that should be added to the guest list.” Thats what I would have Fiance do…

I would definitely ask Fiance to bring it up to his family. Is it possible there is a miscommunication and they didn’t realize your family would want to attend?

That is quite strange. My FI’s father has passed away and his mother is not very involved, but his cousin wants to give us a “engagement party” (really just a causal get together). But she asked me for a guest list.

What was the response when you asked if your two friends could come?

Oh, see I would’ve taken that and run with it. At least your parents should be there for sure! I would call and just ask her if we can add them. I doubt that they would shoot you down.
