@LouLouAnnxxx:  That dress says more “club” than “engagement party” to me. I think I would choose something different.

I know it means a lot to you but since there will be a lot of family there, I think you should find some way to turn it down a bit or pick a different dress.

@LouLouAnnxxx:  I wouldn’t wear this one. Great dress to wear to a club or an evening with friends your own age but not a dress to wear when his grandma and great aunt are near. Remember: you won’t have a second chance to make first impression and you will probabely meet his extended family members for the first time.

You look way too sexy (and I mean that as a compliment) ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

BUT I think if you are having doubts/hesitations about wearing that gown in front of your party guests, then you should probably wear a different gown. You should be celebrating your engagement at the party, and the “inappropriateness” of your gown should be the furthest thing from your mind! 

As PPs said, first impressions are important, and you want to make sure that your lasting impression is a great one. At the same time, don’t completely change your style/compromise who you are (because that gives a false first impression); just make minor adjustments so that your look doesn’t cause unwanted pearl-clutching.

I’m going to be honest… I don’t think it’s appropriate. I picture a light airy dress… this is too “club” for my taste.

@LouLouAnnxxx:  Like other PP’s have said, I too would recommend a different dress.

I personally don’t think this is the dress you should wear.  You opened with “it is going to be formal” and that dress doesn’t look particularly formal to me.

I’m going to have to vote a different dress too. It looks fabulous on you! But it’s too sexy I think for a nice engagement party.

@LouLouAnnxxx:  I think a cocktail dress or a long gown would work best with a formal party. Skater dresses or jeans seem far too informal.
