Dresses For Your Engagement Party

Your engagement party marks the first of many wedding-related celebrations, and of course the first of many matrimony-inspired looks in the lead up to your big day. When searching for the right dress to celebrate in style, it’s important to consider the venue, season and your personal style to find that ultimate piece that makes you look and feel a million dollars.

Whether you’ll be keeping in line with tradition in an all-white ensemble, adding a pop of colour or opting for a classic Little Black Dress, we’ve handpicked some standout styles to try when you celebrate the beginning of a new chapter in your fairy tale romance. 

All White 

Give your guests a teaser of your wedding day look with an all-white piece. A traditional and timeless option, an all-white outfit can be as casual or glam as you desire to suit the venue and formality of the celebration. For a more understated daytime look choose a graceful, A-line midi or tiered maxi dress and pair with heeled mules and fine gold necklaces, or dance the night away in a tailored jumpsuit or fitted mini dress. Keep it monochrome and team your evening look with white heels and a slick ponytail or updo.

Pop of Colour

If you’d rather save the white dress for your big day, take advantage of your power as hostess and shake up the tradition. Explore bold, bright colour palettes and look for romantic shades of pinks and reds or touch on tradition with ‘something blue’. For the ultimate aesthetic look, request your guests dress in white to stand out from the crowd, or coordinate your venue décor to compliment your ensemble. Pair a statement colour with coordinating heels and keep accessories minimal.

Little Black Dress

Elegant and chic, the classic Little Black Dress is perfect for basically any occasion, and your engagement party is no exception. From a glamorous cocktail party to an intimate celebratory dinner with your nearest and dearest, there’s an endless choice of mini dresses, midi dresses or stunning two-piece sets to complement any figure and showcase your unique style. Level up your look with a pair of sparkly heels, statement earrings and a bold lip colour. 

Regardless of the season or occasion, a black dress will always be in style and on trend. The plunging neckline and side split of the Marta Dress (top) adds a flirty finish to a classic silhouette. The Mauris Set (bottom), features an all over sequin finish for a showstopping look.

When searching for the perfect piece to wear to your engagement party, don’t be afraid to stray from tradition. Choose an outfit that makes you look and feel beautiful and shows off your own style, so you can enjoy the first of many celebrations as a bride-to-be!
