Engagement party invitation question
Posted 26 July 2008 - 10:26 PM
I have told my friends that I really dont want a shower but am ok with an engagement party since you dont have to bring a gift to that. I know some people might bring gifts, but it's not a given that they will.
Is it ok to invite folks to the engagement party who wont be invited to the wedding? I think generally the answer would be no, but everyone knows we are having a small wedding, and since it's a party more than a shower I am wondering if that rule still holds.

i think that if you are NOT having an at home reception after the wedding then yes, invite anyone and everyone to help you celebrate your engagement party. just let people know that you're having a small, intimate wedding in Las Vegas next year and that you may or may not (depending on what you're doing) have a reception at home afterward and that's why you're inviting them to your party. Most people aren't offended at all when you explain your situation to them.

We want to have an AHR, but a lot of that will depend on whether or not we have gotten settled into a new house. We are planning to sell both our houses and buy a new one, and I've always envisioned our AHR to be in our new house.
Everyone knows that we dont want some huge formal affair which is the biggest reason we aren't getting married at home, and they completely understand.
