If people know you’re engaged the engagement party is pointless, really. They’re meant to announce the engagement to everyone.

I don’t think it’s too late, especially since you still have a long while till your wedding. What’s the etiquette on engagement parties–is it officially cool to throw one for yourself?? I can’t remember.

Fiance and I got engaged in September. We had our engagement party in February.

We had to figure out a time when everyone could get together, since my parents live on the other side of the country. And Future Mother-In-Law was throwing it so it had to work for her too.

I don’t think it’s too late at all.

We just had a fun, relaxed, informal brunch with a small group and everyone loved it.

We are having a party, which will have mostly just the people in our wedding and parents. I was talking to someone and they said ‘like an engagement party’. Not really, but I guess you could say that. We got engaged in Dec ’10. So its not to late for you. We are only really doing it b/c we live in different states and are having my family come to town and meet his friends, so it is def. not an engagement party by any means.
