What to wear to an engagement party

An engagement party is a significant milestone in any couple's journey into marriage. If you’re lucky enough to be included in this special journey, it’s essential to find the perfect outfit to celebrate the occasion. Finding the right outfit can be overwhelming, but with a few pointers from the team here at Nadine Merabi, you can easily dress to impress. Let us give you some inspiration for some outfit ideas for engagement parties.

What do you wear to an engagement party?

Now, when it comes to finding the perfect outfit for an engagement party, it’s all in the planning. You’ve got to understand the dress code for the event.

Understanding the dress code is crucial to avoid being over or underdressed. If you're unsure about the dress code, don't hesitate to ask the special couple for clarification. Some couples decide to go for an informal dress code for an engagement event; perhaps a simple lunch or a few drinks, so a formal outfit wouldn’t be fitting.

However, some couples decide to go for the big engagement party vibe and this is where you’ll need to go all out with your outfit choice. Don’t worry though, we’ve got some stunning suggestions for you!

Outfits ideas for engagement parties

Wear a dress to impress

A simple, yet sophisticated, outfit idea for an engagement party is a dress. 

A wardrobe staple, dresses make for perfect outfit choices regardless of the event. Take our Victoria Hot Pink dress, for instance. This statement hot pink midi dress is designed from crepe fabric with boning in the bodice for a fitted look that sculpts and attenuates your figure. Featuring beautifully designed bow detailing to the shoulders, this sleek dress makes for the perfect engagement party outfit.

Another fabulous dress choice for an engagement party is our Lola Red Dress. This dress is made from luxurious lace and features a plunging v-neckline and a figure-cinching 3-tier waistband. It is fully lined with mesh for a flawless finish, ensuring you’ll stand out from the crowd. This dress oozes sophistication and is the kind of outfit that you can wear again and again.

Jump into it with a jumpsuit

If you’re not feeling a dress for your engagement party, why not consider a jumpsuit?

Comfy, versatile, and guaranteed to match the party vibe, jumpsuits make for an easy yet statement outfit. Take our Lucinda Gold Jumpsuit, for example.

Outfit tips for engagement parties

To make your life a thousand times easier, we thought it would be helpful to put together some outfit tips for engagement parties. That way, you’ll feel 100% prepared to start shopping for your engagement party look. 

Consider the venue

The engagement party's location can and should influence your outfit choice. If the party is at a beach, you can opt for a flowy dress or a skirt and top combo. If the party is at a hotel or an event hall, you may need to dress more formally.

Accessorise in the right way

Accessories can elevate your outfit but you need to choose them wisely. Avoid wearing too many accessories that can overwhelm your outfit. A statement necklace, earrings or a bracelet can add a pop of colour to your outfit. Just be careful not to overdo it.

Comfort is key

You'll be mingling and dancing at the party, so it's essential to wear comfortable shoes and clothes that allow you to move freely. No one wants to be struggling halfway through a party because their heels are making their feet hurt! 

Dress for the season

The weather can have a huge impact on your outfit choice. In the summer, you can opt for lighter fabrics and bright colours. In the winter, you may need to wear warmer clothes and darker hues.
