Engagement Party Cocktail Dresses

At Fashionably Yours, we love to style you for every bridal event! We have an extensive range of wedding dresses, bridesmaids dresses, mother of the bride, mother of the groom and engagement party dresses to help dress you for all things bridal. We have a wide range of designers and when it comes to finding you a dress for your engagement party, Jadore, Elle Zeitoune and Shona Joy have some gorgeous styles and designs. 

For engagement parties, most people will opt for a cocktail dress. Usually engagement parties are relatively small and are a lot more casual than the wedding. I love the idea of wearing white, to continue the bridal theme throughout all celebrations, but we have some gorgeous cocktail dresses which will be perfect for your event.

These are two of our newest arrivals and by far my favourites for an engagement party cocktail dress. I absolutely love the white lace detail and the fact these both look like cocktail length bridal gowns. The nude lining highlights the white lace and I love the floor length lace. The bodice comes in two different styles, for different kinds of coverage and cleavage as well!

These are two other gorgeous new arrivals from the Elle Zeitoune collection. Both of these still have a bridal feel with the white lace if you want to continue the white theme throughout your celebrations. Both of these dresses are also great cocktail dresses to have in your wardrobe for any event! 21st's, work Christmas parties etc, it's always good to have a nice cocktail dress ready to be worn.

Shona Joy is one of our newest labels at Fashionably Yours and they have some gorgeous cocktail dresses, perfect for engagement parties. The style is quite different from Elle Zeitoune and are a bit more casual if you're engagement party is during the day or something smaller. Shona Joy is great, as each style dress will come in up to 19 colours, making them perfect for bridesmaids dresses as well. The emerald green colour is very in this season, and the porcelain nude colour is a nice classic colour.

If you're engagement party is more formal or at night time, then a full length formal dress might be a better option for you. A lot of couples who have destination weddings have bigger engagement parties, so all those who can't attend the wedding overseas can still celebrate with them before hand. These formal gowns are both available in other colours, but I do love them both in white! A lot of people wear these gowns as second wedding dresses, or if their wedding isn't very formal, will opt for a style like these.

Continuing with the white theme, these gorgeous evening dresses would also be perfect for an engagement party. These would also be gorgeous bridesmaids dresses if you are daring enough to go for the white bridesmaids trend! These would also be gorgeous as school formal dresses, or debutante dresses.
