Making a fashion statement at your engagement party doesn't always mean giving into sticker shock (there is already plenty of that when it comes to weddings!). It means picking the best pieces that truly reflect your personality and respect your budget. This probably will be the first time your friends and family see you engaged so you'll definitely want to make an entrance! Whether you opt for a classic white dress or experiment with color or even with the ever so popular jumpsuit trend, you can be sure to stun well within your budget. While it's easy to obsess over what clothing you'll wear, don't forget that adding a statement earring or a really great bag can totally elevate your look. If you're looking to wear white at your engagement party, think about incorporating a fun shoe for a pop of color to really make it your own. We probably don't need to remind you of this, but this is the start of your highly photographed journey to marriage, so make sure you let your personality shine through!
