Engagement party? ARH?? HELP!!
Posted 09 November 2009 - 06:08 PM
Based on everything I have read it seems it is not "PC" to invite people to your engagement party who are not invited to the DW?? If this is true then it seems we have to have an at home reception? This would mean we have to have an AHR during the 2010 holiday season which my FI and I would both like to avoid. We just aren't sure we are going to be able to use more vacation time so soon, $$, etc.
What would you do Did people have engagement parties? Bridal showers? AHR Who did you invite??
HELP!! Thanks :-)

IMO I think it depends on who it is and your relationship with them. I think especially with a DW, it would be fine for your parents to have a party/celebration for you guys. It's not like you are doing it begging for gifts they just want to celebrate the happy occasion. With a small guest list people will understand you are just doing family and close friends.
I don't think you need to have a AHR especially with your family from all over the US it would be like another "destination wedding"

It doesn't necessarily have to be a full reception, just a fun party so that your parents can celebrate your recent marriage with their friends.

Keep it simple... if they come to other parties, I think everyone will see that as their chance to celebrate with you.
