Weddings are the most exhilarating events of a woman's life, but it can be very stressful. Once you're engaged, you will be filled with excitement and you just don't know how to deal with it. But one thing is for sure, your friends and family need to know about the big step you're about to take. So, now that you're about to be Mrs. Right, you'll need to find the best engagement party dress for brides. Here are some great steps to take before you set a date for your engagement. So, no worries! We're here to help you out every step of the way until your engagement party is set.
Who should I first inform about my engagement?
Who'd ever want to find out you just got engaged on Facebook? Your friends and especially your parents wouldn't find that appealing at all, would they? Let the most important people in your life know that you've gotten engaged rather than making a hasty announcement on social media.
Is it right for me to post my engagement ring on social media?
Everybody practically posts everything on social media but be very careful about what you post and how you post it. Once you've let the most important people in your life know about your engagement and also have the approval of your fiancee, then you can go ahead and post. But make sure you take a picture of you with your ring—and better yet—with your betrothed rather than just a huge close-up of the engagement ring. An engagement ring close-up is quite unethical and flashy.
Can I throw the engagement party myself?
Traditionally, it's the couple's parents who throw the engagement party, but nothing is traditional nowadays. You can surely throw an engagement party yourself or plan it with your family and friends. There's no guideline in whoever throws an engagement party.
When should I throw an engagement party?
As soon as your engagement is announced, you can throw an engagement party. Two or three months after the engagement is quite an appropriate time to prepare for the party and other stuff. If not, you can set and engagement party six months before the set wedding date.
What should wear on my engagement party?
This would depend on the party itself. A formal evening engagement party requires a more formal evening gown. Since you are the star of the event, it's alright to wear a dress that's a little too flashy but dressed in a wedding gown is quite over the top. If it's a more casual event, whether it's in the middle of the day or the evening, the setting will surely dictate the type of bridal engagement party dress you should wear. Cocktail dresses are ideal for these less formal events.
Should I wear white on my engagement party?
Well, not really. You can wear any colored dress you want; you have all the liberty to do so. Some engagement parties make the bride wear a tiara or a sash stating 'bride-to-be'—also the groom—for distinction. If you want to call more attention to yourself as the bride-to-be, then you can go ahead and wear an appropriate white engagement party dress for brides.
