Engagement Party Dresses
Most wedding and party planners agree an engagement party is neither a mini-wedding nor a dress rehearsal for the big day. While it should be festive and fun, it should not compete with the main event to come. That doesn’t mean you can’t match your celebrations in style. For example, if you’re having a traditional wedding, it makes sense to plan a less formal but still classy and elegant engagement party.
Dressing for an engagement party is easy as long as you do a bit of research before the event. If it’s your engagement party, you get to set the rules and wear whatever you would like, but if you’re attending a friend or family member’s party, it’s important to dress appropriately for the event. If you know the couple well, you’ll probably have a good handle on what they’re expecting, but there are a few clues as to what appropriate attire will be.
If the engagement party is at a bar or casual restaurant, the couple is likely hoping for a relaxed celebration. If the party is at a posh venue, your attire should be more formal. Engagement parties at a couple’s apartment may be a bit more like a party depending on how they typically entertain, whereas if it’s at a parent’s home, it may be more of a formal gathering.
Once you have a clear idea on the venue, and dress code, it’s time to fine the perfect engagement party dress!! Be aware that this look should be a rehearsal of what you’re going to wear for the big day….don’t give too much away, keep it simple but stylish and make sure you dress to fit and accentuate your figure and body shape.
Pales and pastels are the norm for engagement party dresses, but stay away from white, that’s the brides colour palate. Keep on trend with bold, regal colours such as purples, blues and reds. Keep your dress simple and compatible with your body shape and add killer heels and statement jewellery to include touch glamour.
