Once all the excitement of a successful proposal and getting engaged settles in, you’d most likely be moving on with planning that engagement party to celebrate this milestone in your life with the people closest to your heart. So, what will be the theme? Who will be invited? What will you wear to your engagement party?
Of course, the obvious must-wear at the party and the highlight of the show is the sparkling bling on your finger, which is one of those diamond engagement rings Queensland couples purchase from Diamond Brokers Queensland. But aside from this newly-acquired bling, the outfit that you decide to wear will likely reflect your personality or your bridal style.
Since you will be the centre of attention during your engagement party, make sure that you pick the right outfit that will definitely impress your groom and your guests. If you’re looking for some engagement party dress styles to take inspiration from, take a look at the following considerations so that your engagement ring isn’t the only thing sparkling at the party:
What is your engagement party theme?
While these celebrations usually have a cocktail motif, you can opt to do a lot of other themes. You can have a laid-back outdoor picnic or backyard barbecue get-together or you can have a more formal gathering and host an intimate soiree at a fancy restaurant. You might want certain colours as a theme, like black and white or pastel-themed parties. Whatever you decide to wear to the event should be appropriate to the theme.
Wear a dress style you love.
Feel free to wear any engagement party dress style you want as long as it expresses your personality and is comfortable enough to party the night away. Are you an ultra-glam bride-to-be? Then pick out the most glamorous ensemble you can find and wear it to your very own engagement party. Do you fancy a full-length gown with high heels for an evening soiree? If you are more comfortable in a casual outfit of floral culottes and a breezy top, then go wear those. It’s your celebration, so there’s no better time to wear what you want than now.
Always go for comfort.
Whatever dress you decide to eventually wear, make sure you always consider how comfortable you are in the ensemble. While you might want to show off those curves with a body-fitting outfit, you don’t want to wear a dress that is too tight that you can’t move in it. Remember that you will be the centre of attention for the event, so you’ll need to mingle with the guests. Depending on the activities set for the party, you might be asked to play games or dance, and if you can’t do that with the super tight outfit then you might not enjoy the party as much as you should. So make sure that when you finally decide on what to wear, you choose an outfit you feel comfortable in.
Keep your accessories simple.
Again, the most important accessory you will wear to your engagement party is on your ring finger so there’s really no need to over accessorise. Simply choose one other statement piece and you’ll still be the most sparkly subject at the celebration.
For many, a white or cream-coloured dress is a traditional choice for brides-to-be. Also, typical choices are cocktail dresses that are slightly above the knee and paired with comfortable heels that you can enjoy the entire party in. However, if you refuse to be boxed in as a traditional bride, you can definitely choose to wear whatever you want on this special day.
