    Well... just wondering.
    A friend of mine(17) is having an engagement party.

    Am I suppose to buy a gift or something for her?
    LoL.

    Yes ... it is normal ... I would go for something inexpensive and humorous ... like a plastic ball and chain ...

    I think you do yes. I couldn't really suggest anything in particular but something that would benefit both persons would be ideal.

    Key word is party.

    If you got invited to a person's party, odds are a gift is involved.

    Condoms.

    No, really, "serious" gifts are given on the actual wedding. Engagement parties call for gag gifts.

    Engagement parties?

    No, you don't give gifts to a newly engaged couple.

    Next we will divorce parties [​IMG]

    If that's true people owe me gifts X2 [​IMG]

    I think it is also that I got engaged and married later in life. I wonder if the engagement parties are the new fad [​IMG]

    Nah ... definitely not new ... I have been going to them for decades ... I even have a few friends who have had several over the years lol

    ... and it's not just a UK thing, before you speculate on that ... I'm originally from the US, and I went to them there, too ...
