Whether you’ll be celebrating with an evening cocktail hour or going out for a weekend brunch, we’ve rounded up our best outfit ideas and tips on what to wear for an engagement party, so you’ll look and feel your best at your special event.
Embrace your unique style and get ready to be the star of the show with our favorite engagement party outfit ideas!
Keep Things Classic
Whether your engagement party consists of a fancy evening cocktail hour or a classic garden party with your closest friends and family, you can’t go wrong with an elegant white lace dress. Opt for a lace dress in a classic, sophisticated cut like our Selena Lace Midi Dress, and finish off your outfit with colorful accessories or your favorite purse. This is a great engagement party outfit idea for any bride-to-be who identifies with a classic vibe!
Make a Statement
If you’re the sort of bride-to-be who wants to steal the show, go bold with an over-the-top, ruffled option like our bestselling Waldorf Tulle Mini Dress. Let your self-confidence show and make some amazing memories in a bubbly, whimsical number. If you want to make a bold statement with what to wear for an engagement party, opt for show-stopping fabrics like tulle, sequins, or mesh. Pair your dress with minimal jewelry and accessories to really let your dress shine.
Wondering what to wear for an engagement party, but looking for an outfit idea that is a little more subtle? Keep things simple with a minimalist number, and let your ring do the talking. Simple yet refined pieces, like our Alexa Tweed Mini Dress, are perfect for smaller affairs, like a family-only dinner, or for bride-to-bes who prefer a more understated style. Pair your dress with simple makeup and accessories for a special, low-key look that’s still bridal.
If following the rules has never really been your style, consider a white jumpsuit when choosing what to wear for an engagement party. These modern styles are anything but traditional but can be a great way to stay comfortable during the event and make a bold statement along the way. We love our Elyse Sheer Back Jumpsuit for just this reason – it’s guaranteed to turn heads while you stay comfortable and relaxed. Finish off your new jumpsuit with accessories or pair it with contemporary, angular pieces to go all-in on the modern theme.
