What to Wear to Your Engagement Party, Bridal Shower, Rehearsal Dinner
You can't go wrong with a simple white dress. This one works for daytime and evening showers, depending on how you accessorize it.
If girliness isn't your thing (but you still want a shower, and presents) opt for a tuxedo-style white dress paired with a tough accessory.
Maybe you want something other than the traditional white. We get it. In that case, florals are always sweet and safe, but you can add a slick ponytail and a bright shoe to jolt them with a little energy.
Go ahead and wear a head-turning color and big earrings (Lulu Frost makes the best vintage-y ones both your best friend and grandma will like). Just keep your nails simple. People are gonna wanna see that ring.
If you're gonna go for something super-fitted, the engagement party's the best time to do it, since during the wedding weekend you'll probaly want to opt for more ladylike silhouettes. We'd suggest something in a grown-up color palette, paired with elegant accessories.
Bright blues like this one are ladylike but eye-catching. But what we particularly love is the swingy '50s silhouette—it's so glamorous.
If you're not switching from your gown to a short white dress for your reception, wear one for your rehearsal dinner instead. We love this one, with its ridiculously flattering fit-and-flare shape.
Lacy dresses and deep red lipstick both fall into the flirty-yet-polished category. Guys will love it, girls will love it, moms and moms-in-law will love it.
