Getting engaged could be a thrilling and remarkable experience – one that stays evergreen in your memory. It’s all bright and exciting and there are numerous butterflies in your belly until you have to choose a dress for your engagement party. Then you’re faced with numerous options: a comfy dress that looks rather too simple, a detailed beauty dress that brings discomfort, perfect style-wrong fit and many others. Choosing an engagement dress is fun but could also be stressful without the right knowledge. This article is designed to help you select the perfect engagement dress. Here are some points to consider when choosing an engagement outfit…

IN THIS ARTICLE

Body Type

In selecting an outfit, the need to consider your body type cannot be overemphasized. You should select a dress that accentuates your assets and flatters your body shape. If you’d also like to create the illusion of height, bust, or a slimmer waist, all of these should come into play when selecting your dress.

Comfort

While you might be tempted to focus fully on the pictures, it is important that you consider your comfort. It will be way easier to pose and enjoy your own party when you’re comfortable. 

Style and Personality

Remember, it is your engagement dress. Would you prefer a denim or a cocktail dress? Be yourself with your dress. Use accessories and pieces of jewelry that depict your style and personality. Minimalism or Maximalism? Do your thing.

Partners outfit

You should also consider your partner’s outfit, especially if you’d like to rock matching outfits at your engagement party.

Season

Since different colors look great in various seasons, taking cues from the season could be a plus. White and neutral colors look charming in winter, while vibrant colors are great for summer.
