Wedding Engagement Party: Who Hosts the Engagement Party?

by The Knot

Q:

Is it appropriate for a couple to initiate their own engagement party, or is someone from either of the families supposed to do that?

A:

Anyone can host the engagement party, although traditionally the bride's parents host the first soiree. But more couples are opting to throw their own engagement parties these days, so go for it! Also, you don't have to stop at just one party. If you and your fiance want to have a party for your friends and family, your parents can have a separate one later. The more the merrier!
