One of the most exciting times and events to attend are engagement parties, weddings, and festivals. But, for the purpose of this post, we’re helping you with some excellent ideas for what to wear for an engagement party.
Knowing how to wear a saree is important when attending an Indus traditional wedding. The saree has been part of Indian culture for hundreds of thousands of years. Even now, these beautiful garments are masterpieces in fashion and high-end design.
There are many ways you could drape a saree including the following:
- Butterfly style – The butterfly or Bollywood is a popular way of draping a saree. One of the conic features t the butterfly is the exposure of the midriff and navel. It is chic and beautiful and often worn like this in South Asia.
- The Maharashtrian saree wrap – Wrapping your saree in the Maharashtrian way allows the legs to move with ease. This is an ideal way to wrap your saree for the party you’re attending if you want free legroom and ease of movement.
- Belted – With the belted wrapped saree, you will look sophisticated and elegant for the occasion.
As a rule of thumb, if you do attend an engagement party, since white is often associated with the bride avoid wearing white. Your engagement party outfits can be anything from a dress to a pantsuit but choose a fitting color.
Engagement party outfit ideas include wearing florals. Florals are a great choice, especially in the warmer seasons as it brings out the beauty of sunshine, color and flowers. Florals are energizing and associated with a happy mood.
Dress for the theme
Always dress for the theme to be on point with your engagement party outfit choices. If it’s a beach engagement, wear clothes suited to the beach. Keep the wind in mind and the sand and sea salt air that could sometimes ruin a good hairstyle and make you feel clammy. Wear suitable clothing for this occasion.
If the engagement is a high-end formal type, go with the attire. For instance, a black-tie event is strictly suits and dresses. Men would wear dinner jackets and ties and women floor length gowns and minimal jewellry.
Keep things simple and enjoy yourself
Don’t overthink the situation. Simply go with the flow, wear the attire made for the event and enjoy yourself. Dress comfortably because engagement parties can be a long event and tiring and you want to feel as comfortable and appropriate as possible. Don’t forget a gift for the couple to be. As part of good etiquette, bring along the engagement gift. No engagement is complete without a toast and a gift for the Mr and Mrs to be.
