 i’m not 100% sure, but shouldn’t someone other than the bride or groom host the engagement party?

are you having it at someone’s house or did you rent a venue?

your bridesmaids don’t have to match for an engagement party.

@MyOwnWoman:  Bridesmaids should not match. They can wear whatever they want to an engagement party…

But I must say, as a PP said, the Bride and Groom should NEVER host their own engagement party, even if they are hosting their own wedding. The engagement party is traditionally thrown by a family member, or even a member of the bridal party. For many, it is considered a “gift giving occasion”, and therefore, in extremely poor taste to be thrown for one’s self.

This is like a bride throwing her own bridal shower….. it is considered rude, and inappropriate.
