1- Beware of the Weather!

That’s simply not possible and very inconvenient! That’s why the most important part of this whole journey is the pinpoint when you’ll be having your party. If you’re having your engagement in a closed venue, you can easily wear a strapless or sleeveless gown. Nonetheless, a long sleeved dress is always encouraged!

2- Pay Attention to the Grandiose of the Event!
An engagement is an event of celebration, that’s for sure, but sometimes the celebrations are small with only close family and friends. When it comes to parties with smaller audience, brides-to-be tend to go for a simpler, less over-the-top looks. Which leads us to cocktail dresses! Wearing a shorter evening dress doesn’t make the occasion any less important by any means. If anything it makes it casual and fun!

3- Match Your Outfit to The Theme!
Similar to a wedding dresses, engagement dresses should be matching with your theme, decorations, venue, etc.. It’s very aesthetically pleasing and very classy to have a unified theme when it comes to any occasion for that matter. And and engagement party is no different! Try to choose the color and style of your dress at a close proximity of your theme. You don’t have to wear pink for example just because you’re having pink decoration, but choosing a color from the same palette is a plus!
If you don’t want to stick to one color, or if you’re not heaving a colored theme, you can stay on the safe side and choose a neutral color. A gold or silver dress is a go to option, especially if you’re torn between your options!
4- Follow the Stars!
There’s no harm in getting inspired by your favorite celebs walking those fancy red carpet. Sure, you might not be looking for something as fancy or glamorous for your engagement, but it’s a good way to know what tp expect before hitting the stores. Seeing Reese Witherspoon for example if her all navy glitter mermaid gown can surely be a source of admiration when it comes to choosing your own! These red carpet events are a prime source of muse for anything fashion related, so make sure you tune in.
The most important thing to remember is to choose an evening dress that makes you look and feel beautiful.
