    Nice to have I guess. I didn't even consider having one personally.. but on the other hand, any excuse to party is a good one! Smiley laugh

    Nice to have, definitely not a necessity.

    Nice to have-- we didn't have one and our families are spread across to the country. There'll be events the weekend before and week of our wedding. None are mandatory-- we understand our guests have lives and responsibilities. We're getting married in my hometown!

    Nice to have I guess, I was offered one but just didn鈥檛 want it. I don鈥檛 like attention.

    I agree, I don't really like being the center of attention.

    Nice to have but I didn鈥檛 want one. My parents and BFF from OT school offered but I just didn鈥檛 have the energy or time for it.

    Nice to have. We didn鈥檛 even consider one. Our engagement is short enough to not even miss it!

    I say nice to have. Parties are expensive and alot of people are already going to be celebrating you at your wedding and showers. We did not have an engagement party and we're just fine.
