What’s the purpose of an engagement party?
While some may think its an unnecessary way of gaining monetary gifts for your wedding day, others may see it as a way to celebrate two people and two families coming together. If you make it your own, why can’t it be just a fun party? If an engagement party sounds like a wedding- opt for a smaller just family & friends gathering at a relative home rather than a restaurant or hall.
