The most important year of your life kicks off the minute that ring goes on your finger — and that goes for your fashion choices too! Your engagement party dress is the first opportunity to show off your killer bridal style. We've got something for every bride-to-be, from classic to bohemian to modern.

From engagement party to wedding day, the year (or more) that you're engaged is full of opportunities to break out the best your fashion sense has to offer. And it all starts with the engagement party dress!

It's the first of many wedding-related events; so all eyes are on the bride-to-be (and sure, the groom too!). Many of your friends and family have come to celebrate you and it's most likely the first time you're seeing them since that ring went on your finger.

Before you hit the bridal salons looking for THE ONE, take some time to consider the ideal engagement party dress. It might be the perfect opportunity to set the tone for not only your bridal style, but also your wedding style to come.

Thinking of a destination wedding in the tropics? Maybe opt for a more casual bohemian engagement party look. A modern wedding in the city more your speed? There are plenty of chic and striking dresses to make a powerful statement. Or, maybe you're thinking of a classic wedding full of tradition? We've got you covered!

Set the tone for the rest of your wedding wardrobe (you still have the shower, bachelorette, rehearsal, and, of course, wedding day to contend with) in one of these gorgeous dresses perfect for your engagement party.
