My fi and I have been engaged for over a year now and our wedding is not till next year. My family wants to have an engagement party for us in the coming months, I’ve had one person tell me we’ve been engaged forever and it’s stupid. What do you all think??

You can have an engagment party whenever it suits you. I was engaged for almost 7 months before I had mine. We wanted to wait until the summer to have a BBQ so people come sit outside, swim, etc. It was a lot less crowded that way and we didn’t have to worry about renting a hall, going to a restaurant, etc.
I don’t think it’s stupid considering your wedding is still 10 or so months away. I’d most definitely have it soon though because you will be having a shower soon.
Also, make sure to remind people that this is a celebration and not a way to get presents.
