I am having what they call here a Serenata.  It’s an engagement serenade, sort of a send off, the last party before you’re married and a celebration and end of the engagement.  It’s supposed to be a surprise.

This is what I will wear (I made it):

I’m attending our engagement party on Saturday and I won’t be wearing white or ivory, because I didn’t shop enough to find one I liked in time! I would’ve loved to wear something white or off-white, but oh well. I’ll be rewearing a dress I wear to other people’s weddings.

I wore the teal dress shown in this blog post.

It was from The Limited, but I’m not finding it on their site anymore and I don’t have any good photos from the party that show the whole dress.

I originally wanted to wear a white dress, but I couldn’t find one that I liked in time for the party. Plus our engagement party was on St. Patrick’s Day, so the greenish color was good. Our party was hosted at my fiance’s aunt and uncle’s house in the evening (large old, remodeled home with lots of antiques). It wasn’t terribly formal, but a fairly fancy affair for my group of friend – not just a backyard BBQ.

I would say that you can wear white, but you do not have to. Wear a dress that you like and will be comfortable in. You will have other times you can wear a white dress if you want to (but again wouldn’t have to) while you’re engaged (bachelorette party, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner). Good luck! I’m sure you’ll find something perfect to wear!

Here’s what we wore.  I can from a wedding earlier that day so White was not going to work.  Plus I wanted a dress I could wear again.

I think white is popular, but what I did, was wear the colour that I am having my bridesmaids wear at my wedding – a little nod towards things to come!
