I was wondering how many of you have had an engagement party?!? Is it tradition to do so?
My lovely FI proposed on Christmas Eve and we are looking at doing a fabulous outdoor engagement party in May since that's when the rain stops and it's warm enough to do, we are planning our DW wedding in October 2011 but since my FI's family is HUMUNGOUS, we'll invite everyone to the egagement party and only the close members to the wedding.

However, I've been told you have to be careful though about inviting ppl to an engagement party that aren't going to be invited to the wedding (unless this is your substitute for an at home reception). You might have to make it understood that only your closest family and friends will be invited to the actual wedding or you could get some hurt feelings to ppl down the road who celebrated with you in the beginning.
Has anyone else heard this before? Not that I want to discourage anyone from having a party, I think we should get to celebrate our engagement every weekend!! But just don't want you to unexpectedly have to deal with an unhappy friend or family member once the invites are sent out!
