The proper and generally accepted etiquette is that you should NOT invite anyone to a pre-wedding party who is not also invited to the wedding. Sorry. 🙁
ETA: I suppose you could just have a party, and not call it anything engagement or wedding related? (I just cant think of what at the moment…)

yeah i don’t think you can do this, unless you are planning a brunch or reception for your other family/friends after the destination wedding

Yeah, sorry. It’s extremely rude to invite people to an engagement party who won’t be invited to the wedding. Can your parents just have a barbecue or other casual get-together, NOT call it an engagement party and invite both friends and family? That could be one way for your Fiance to get to know your parents’ friends better.
