Our engagement party is in a couple weeks. It is being held at my fiance’s family home. It is winter here…very cold…no one wears white. Is it typical for the bride to wear a white dress? I’m looking on pinterest and that is what it seems like…Or does it matter? I know you don’t have to follow all the traditions I’m just curious…

For my engagment party I didnt wear white. We had a theme for our party so I wore blue. No one commented about it. I dont think its a big deal to wear a color at your engagment party.

I wore white at mine but only because it was July when we had it and super hot. I would have chosen another colour if the party was in winter

@emma34: I wouldn’t think it odd at all for a bride not to wear white at her engagement party. But I do think it’s cute:) Here are some ideas. They definitely could be super cute and wintery wtih boots

I don’t understand the obsession with “wear white to all the things!!!” The engagement party, shower, bachelorette, reshersal… we get it, you’re the bride. If white looks good on you and you find a white dress you love, go for it. But don’t rule out other options you like just because they aren’t white. Wear whatever you want.

You can wear whatever color you want to wear.
There are no hard and fast rules about what one should and should not wear. What’s important is that you are dressed appropriately for that particular event and that you are comfortable.
Pinterest is great for ideas and inspiration, but there’s no need to base what you do and don’t do on what you see there. That site features many options and ways to do things, not the only option and the only way.

I just bought this dress for our engagement party! It’ll be sometime in late March though. I was thinking I’d wear white, but… I figured I love pink, and the print is super cute and it does have a bit of white on it – best of all worlds for me! I say wear whatever you feel cute in!

@emma34: I agree with a p/p and don’t understand the obsession with wearing white to everything. I say wear what you like and looks good on you– regardless of the color. Everyone there knows you’re the bride anyway…
We’re not doing an engagement party (and possibly not a shower), but I don’t plan on wearing white to my bachelorette or my rehearsal dinner.
