Okay, I've been engaged for four months now, and your girl is ready to throw a dang party. My fiancé popped the question pre-vaccine, so I've waited quite some time to plan something that all of my favorite people would be able to attend. And because I'm me, I'm actually having two parties: one garden party in Los Angeles with friends as well as one at my parents' home in Northern California with family. So yes, I'm going to buy myself two dresses for both weekends, and I'm not sorry about it.
I just need to start off this roundup by saying I had so much fun creating this—maybe too much fun. (There may or may not be a total of 50 dresses in this article.) I'd catch myself oohing and awing at pieces, screenshotting things to send to friends, and just flat-out smiling while I shopped. I guess the truth is that anything wedding related just makes me so happy. Some of the options are on the formal side, some are a bit more casual, some are all white, and some are incredibly colorful. Quite honestly, I haven't quite figured out my vibe yet, but hey, I've got options. So without further ado, keep scrolling for the 12 engagement dresses in my cart that I'm deciding between, plus 38 more that I'm eyeing.
There's a lot to unpack with this dress: first, the pearls lining the seams; second, the V-shaped bodice, which is bubbling up all over the fashion space; and lastly, the crystals surrounding the buttons. Obsessed would be an understatement.
