I wore a dress from BCBG that I loved, I didn’t feel like I had to wear white because I didn’t want to end up with 5 or 6 white dresses that I wouldn’t necessarily wear again, and I already had this one.:

So you can see more detail:

And this was my party so you can see the level of formality:

We used my neighborhood clubhouse, which used to be a monastary, and this was the church part. I was so happy with the way everything came out, and no one thought it was weird that I wasn’t wearing white. Just wear something you really like.

I dont know a lot of women that do where a white dress. If you want to, go ahead but I think a lot of girls just where a fun pretty dress that they like.

@turkey22:  I agree- I forgot to say- This might be the last chance you have for a while to wear something that isn’t white, but can still be the center of attention. I probably wouldn’t wear the dress I wore to my e-party to someone else’s wedding unless it was really fancy/I knew other people would be wearing attention-grabbing things, but I sure could wear it to my own party!

Our engagement party was in December so I wore a sweater dress.  It’s much cuter when worn with a smile!

I wore a traditional Indian saree to my engagement party. My engagement party was at my uncle’s house in my home country.

Our engagement parties are a bit different. The ring is presented at the party. Now days it’s more modern and my fiance did do a proper proposal, with just us, hahahhahaha.

Excuse my nephew half way falling over in the corner.
