Did any of you ladies have an engagement party and if you did, did you accept gifts? I have been engaged over a year and didnt have one but i do plan on a bridal shower when i do get married? My cousin is getting married in Feb '10 in riviera maya mexico and her engagement party is next sat and gifts are expected!!! So she wants an engagement gift, bridal shower gift, wedding gift PLUS if i go to the wedding for me and my SO its going to be $1700!! Anyone else think thats a little greedy?

  • the reason it sounded off to me was because my other cousin got engaged this summer and did have an engagement party but really big and bold it said NO GIFTS....he just wanted us their to share his excitement!

  • my in-laws wanted to throw one for us and we put the big nix on that... just another excuse for asking for presents... in my opinion.

  • No I didn't have one and yes she sounds greedy. I wouldn't travel to her wedding unless she paid for it....of course she didn't invite me but that's insignificant.

  • You're not obligated to go to any of the events.

    No, we didn't have an engagement party.
