Weddings 101: Engagement Party Style

Now that the bridal shower is over, it’s time to shop for an engagement party dress! Although the tone of engagement parties can vary widely, they tend to be a slightly fancier affair than the afternoon bridal shower. For this reason, we searched for dresses that are sophisticated, elegant and could double as a Friday night cocktail option. We provided a range of choices so everyone will be covered, from the easy house BBQ to the schmancy new hot spot downtown. Here are CC’s picks:

Less than $100:

Modcloth: Burst of Energy Dress, $57.99

Modcloth: Windy City Dress, $64.99

Anthropologie: Grand Island Dress, $98

Forever 21: Shirred Knit Dress, $17

    Mere, you have a dress just like “Windy City Dress,” right? Such a great neckline. Love it!

    Ohhhhh my god, I have been lusting after ModCloth’s Windy City dress for MONTHS now. And the Hotel Particulier dress. If only my own wedding weren’t sucking up all my extra income…!! Gorgeous picks, ladies.

    • Hahahaha really? I love it! It’s actually quite comfortable, but probably not the best pick for a windy day (a little on the short and flowy side). You may not get the Windy City dress, but you DO get a wedding dress. Not so bad!

  3. Oh, how to choose?! I love all your selections! Great blog 🙂

    Delightful Bitefuls
