I haven't a clue... Help!!!

Really, I am sort of out of touch with what's going on in the Young People's world. I don't quite know what to do. We (meaning spouse and I both) have been invited to an Engagement Celebration.

Now is this like a shower, with gifts? Or is it just a get-to-know-you party? He's one of our step grandkids. We had planned to give money as a wedding gift, but I don't want to spend a dime (cautious me) until I am sure they will make it to the altar.

So, what is an Engagement Celebration?

Dunno............I haven't crawled out from under the rock lately. Sounds like a good enough reason to celebrate, however. My g'kids aren't at the almost/planning to be/ or pretending like we are married stage yet, so I haven't run into it and I am not asking them and putting any ideas in their heads, either. LOL.

It's just like the parties people have always had when they announce their engagement. It's supposed to be somewhat intimate, with only family and close friends who will be coming to the wedding. An informal chance for everyone to get together and celebrate. No gifts is the usual. I checked google to make sure it was still what I thought it was..lol.

I agree, if it matters. :) Just another name for an engagment party.

Party on Garth! Party on Wayne!
