I agree! It would not even cross my mind to send a thank you card for essentially attending a party we are throwing. I think for those who have helped with the set up/organisation then definitely - but for just attending no way!
I think my POV comes from my impression that the OP had organised an official occasion to celebrate her engagement - not just thrown a party. I guess engagement parties can straddle a line between official function and casual get together; I wouldn't send thankyou cards for the latter, but I wouldn't send official invitations either.

So for me - written invitation = thank you note, regardless of gift.

Ive gotten our thankyous made up already (not written just the card) and our engagement party is next week. My partner managed to have a friend taking photos when he proposed (not that i knew!!!) and I have had them printed in postcard form.

But no matter what ill be sending one to everyone, but my situation may be a little different as we have asked for no gifts as we have lived together for a while and have everything we need. (although this really isnt being listen to much! lol)
