    Yes, offer to throw her an engagment party and ask another bridesmaid to help (where at???) : (5 votes)

    No, it's unnecessary she wouldn't expect one of her bridesmaids to do that : (22 votes)

    I didn’t have an engagement party but the few I’ve been to have been hosted by family, not bridal party.  So I wouldn’t think you’d be obligated to throw one for her.

    No.  A bridal shower closer to the date? Yes.

    My SIL, who also happens to be a bridesmaid, had an engagement party for us. But it wasn’t expected and it was simple – a pizza party – which was perfect for us and we just had my parents, grandparents, siblings, and a few aunts/uncles. None of his family was there since they live out-of-state. There weren’t gifts or anything either. It was more just like a big family dinner.

    You could have a laid back girls night kind of engagement party. Some appetizers and games should do just fine!

    I do not know the bride in question so maybe she is expecting on her BMs to do it but I would think that if she is expecting anyone to throw a party, it would be MoH, although that usually only applies to Bridal Party not Engagement Party.

    I voted no, if anything you guys should save money and throw a shower or bachlorette party.
