What to Wear to an Engagement Party

Say yes to your engagement party outfit!

You said yes and now it’s party time! Specifically, engagement party time! Being your debut as a bride-to-be you’ll want an extra-special look for the celebration! From little white dresses to pretty prints, we’re sharing dress ideas to inspire your engagement party outfit (modeled by DB bride-to-be, Grace!).


The jumpsuit is our current favorite silhouette! The one-piece is a fresh take on a little white dress with a modern flare. Oh-so-flattering and easy to move around in, you’ll look chic and feel comfortable all party long! With the option of varying necklines and fabrics, you’re bound to find an engagement party jumpsuit that suits your style. Make this blank canvas your own and opt for some fun jewelry and shoes to add your own personal touch.

Animal Print

We’re wild about this look! Animal print is a huge trend this season, which makes it a stylish, go-to option for your engagement party look! If you’re having a more casual affair, a printed dress paired with a flattering silhouette (from a faux wrap to form-fitting) is sure to wow your guests. Accessorize with neutral shoes and a touch of sparkle to not compete with the statement print (or your new ring!)

Floral Prints

Channel your future bridal bouquet and opt for a floral print dress for your engagement party outfit! Floral prints are the perfect way to bring some color into any look. From a pastel spring palette to rich winter tones, a pretty blooming print is in season all year long for your engagement party and beyond. Play off the floral motif with flowering jewels and a matching lip color to complete your look.
