What Should I Wear at My Engagement?

Puneet asked

Can you suggest me some gowns or dresses?

Shilpa Ahuja answered

Hi Puneet,

Unlike the wedding itself, engagement is the time to make a statement and try trendy yet elegant outfit. You can choose something that suits your personality.

We have already written about engagement dresses and gowns, so do check those out here:

The latest trends in gowns this year are sheer, sleeved, off-shoulder and long trains. You can try a flared ball gown with a sheer top/back and embroidery. You can also go for a sheath gown with a train, or mermaid style. Find more trends here: 20 Designer Dresses & Long Gown Designs Straight from Dreamland!

Black and red never go wrong when you want to make a statement:
