Alright my engaged friends, when is the best time to do an engagement party? I have been engaged since May. Do you wait a few months or years? When is the best time to start planning and throwing it?

    As close to your engagement date as possible. They are optional and are rare or unheard of in many areas so don’t be surprised if people in your crowd are not sure what’s going on.

    My brother and SIL had theirs within 3 months of getting engaged, but they’re also the only people I personally know that even had one.

    It's not within etiquette to throw a party to honour yourselves. Engagement parties are usually planned and hosted by someone close to the couple. Is someone doing this for you? If not and you just want a meet and greet type thing then plan that but I wouldn't call it an engagement party.

    Congrats on your engagement!

    We decided to do ours one year out from our date 9-25-21. I love to plan, and this gives me time to have things the way I want and not rush.

    That is somewhat true, however celebrating yourselves is totally acceptable. What if you don’t have parents or others that are able to do it for you? Enjoy yourself and make Love special anyway you see fit!🥰

    We have been engaged since April and did not plan on having an engagement party. To me, it’s just another expense but it is important to some people. I’ve since thought about it, and I’d like for us to celebrate in some way. Our anniversary is at the end of the month, and we were thinking about inviting our nearest and dearest out for pizza and beer. Nothing too spectacular. Just a super casual time with our loved ones. I’d say if you plan on having a formal engagement party, don’t wait for more than a couple of months.
