Who Should Host the Engagement Party?

Engagement party etiquette says that a couple should not host or plan their own party (the same rule is generally applied to bridal showers, baby showers, and bachelor and bachelorette parties). Traditionally, the bride’s parents organize this event.

However, with more couples opting to pay for most of their own wedding expenses, it’s not uncommon to see them also throwing their own engagement soirees. If you go this route, though, be sure to foot the bill – these are your guests.

There is no etiquette rule that limits the amount of engagement festivities a couple should have. So, if you have willing hosts, celebrate to your heart’s content! You should, however, generally avoid hosting multiple parties in the same city. Also, be wary of your guest lists – you don’t want guests to be worn out from parties, showers and other events before they make it to the wedding day!

When to Throw an Engagement Party

Timing is essential for the bash, and will depend on the length of your engagement. For longer engagements, aim for up to month four. For shorter engagements, try for the first month or two. The key is to celebrate before save the dates or invites to other wedding events (showers) are sent out.

Different type of gift than a wedding gift. For an engagement gift people usually give silver picture frames for the future bride and groom to display their wedding photos.
If your brother is invited to the wedding it is proper etiquette to send a wedding gift. It need not be an expensive item off the wedding registry. He can select anything he wants to give them, anything within his budget.
Even if he attended the wedding he would not need to bring a third gift to the after wedding party. That would be way to much.
If he can't afford two gifts a card will suffice

Registry Etiquette

I'm registering for my honeymoon only (I really have no room for any household items at all lol) and I know it is inappropriate to put any registry info on the wedding invites, but can I have an engagement party and a bridal shower and put the registry info on those invites?
I just want all the guests to be aware of it so I can get as many donations as possible so I thought if I could put it on both those invites then all the guests invited to the ceremony will have the registry info.

If it is a fancy venue, then it may be appropriate to have a black-tie event, but if it is a casual venue, it is not necessary to wear something so fancy as a ball-gown or a tuxedo.
