I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for this, however, my question is about engagement photos and a party.
Are they necessary to have? I got engaged two months ago when my fiancé and I visited Iceland. We have not thought about photos, really, we just announced it to Facebook and to other family via word of mouth. Is this something that has to be done or could that be overlooked?
Also, my MOH keeps telling me to have an engagement party, because it means more presents (which does not really mean much to me). Is that something has should be done, also? I don't want to pay for 80+ people to go out, since I am paying quite a bit for the wedding itself.
I definitely nee some advice, I don't even know what to think at this point.
