What time of day do people host their engagement parties? My fiancè and I are hosting ours at my dad's house as most people invited live in my hometown. I've never been to an engagement party so I have no clue what time they start. I looked up online what you do at engagement parties but we don't really want to play a bunch of games as we will be doing that at our stag and doe/ bachelors and bachelorette party. Any ideas?
