    But as peanut says, I think an engagement party is a bit different. If I was so broke I couldn't pay for some salads and meat, then I would either put it off or have a late 8pm start so people have already fed themselves and just have some cheese, dip and bickies to line the tummies of the guests lol
    This ^^^

    What happened to people actually doing the entertaining at a party? I'm the same if we have a dinner or BBQ friends will always turn up with a bottle of something plus will usually bring steaks or special meat but its not expected. You have a party, you cater for your guests, especially an engagement party. That's what being the host of a party is. Otherwise what are you supplying, the tables and cutlery so guests can bring their own dinner.. And drinks.

    I had never heard of people having engagement parties until moving to oz... Dink and dessert and money.. Seriously!?

    The BBQ thing - we always do BYO meat and drinks... Host provides sausages, bread and salads but guests bring anything else they want.

    DH and I believe that if you're going to host something you provide for it.
