    Default Engagement party - how much notice do you give?

    When DH and I got engaged we had a party and invites went out 5 weeks before the date.

    Whats the normal amount of noticce to give for this sort of occasion?

    I have just found out that my GF is engaged and is having an engagement party. Another friend has an ivite for me (GF is interstate, I am assuming party will be here as this is where her loved ones are) but I dont have it yet.

    Anyway, would you think it would be before 9th Feb, thats 4 weekends from now?

    Rayray i am pretty hopless with invites and things. I sent invites out for engagement party two weeks before..... not sure what protocol is though. So i guess if the friends are hopeless like me.......maybe if could be before then.......
