Is it appropriate to give a gift at an engagement party? Kimberly Schlegel Whitman gives you the answer. 

Engagement party tips from Kimberly Schlegel Whitman:

  • You do not need to bring a gift! 
  • The engagement party was designed to announce the couple’s plan to marry and was not specified as an “engagement”  announcement. Because the guests were unaware of this, they were not prepared with a gift, and thus where the etiquette rule originated.
  • For more tips and advice on engagement parties, check out Kim’s Wedding Workbook for all your wedding questions.

Just because you don’t have to bring a gift, you may want to be prepared to sing a little song.
