What to wear on engagement? What to do?

Consider these factors when choosing your engagement outfit.

The event’s time

If it is a day engagement, choose colors accordingly. Colors like yellow, orange and Fuschia pink are better for morning events. Choose contemporary colors, including ice blue, rose gold, green apple, peach, mint, and lavender. 

Evening activities require something more profound and darker. Wear marsala, emerald green, or midnight blue for a bold effect, or dusty pink, gold, grey, or sand for a more subtle look.

Try out different silhouettes.

In 2022, lehengas and sarees weren’t your only option, so get creative. Try dresses, sharara, chaniya choli, sarees, kurti, and more.


Consider the season when choosing an outfit. Most engagements happen outside, so a velvet lehenga in the heat is a no! Silk, velvet, and raw silk are ideal for winter, while sheer nets and organza work well for summer.

Engagement dress for a bride


A traditional lehenga choli is excellent for an engagement ceremony. A lehenga is never a wrong decision. If you’re wearing a lehenga to your wedding and reception, it makes sense to wear something else for your room. 

If you choose a lehenga, you should experiment with different lehenga blouse styles and designs to make it stand out. Modernize lehengas with cape sleeves, tassels, fringe, or even an off-shoulder blouse pattern. Experiment with colors and avoid reds and pinks for a unique wedding look.

Semi Bridal Lehengas

These are everywhere and go great with your engagement. Try a sheer ape over your choli and omit the dupatta when you wear a lehenga but want it modern and lively. Contrary to dupattas, semi bridal lahengas are more dance-friendly and comfortable to handle. 


Sarees are the most popular Indian wedding attire, and they also make stunning engagement outfits. If you, like most brides, plan to wear a lehenga, add some diversity to your wedding photos by wearing a saree for your roka. Choose from a wide range of silk sarees and add a modern twist to your outfit with a designer blouse. 

Consider the engagement if you wish to wear anything from your mother’s wardrobe for a sentimental reason. It’s easy to make an exquisite yet meaningful engagement outfit with your mother or grandmother’s heritage silk saree and a new trendy shirt.

With a saree, it’s easy to look mature, so plan your hair, makeup, and jewelry ahead of time for a youthful, traditional style. Cosmetics and hairstyles with fresh flowers and playful makeup can provide a stunning engagement party look.

Ready pleated lehengas

The pleated design is my favorite trend in the Indian wedding dress. Add metallic, beaded, or fabric tassel pleated to your blouse for a trendy and fun engagement appearance. Try the pleated style on saree blouses or indo-western gowns for a unique twist. Keep the design simple and let the pleated make its statement. Open hairstyles with heavy bangles look great with metallic pleated. 

The pant saree is perfect for fans of modern sari twists. A pant replaces the petticoat for a more elegant and comfortable look. However, there are several pre-draped versions available to buy and zip up without worrying about the pleats and whatnot. That is a strong costume choice, so make sure you have the charisma and confidence to wear it.

Ruffles saree

Ruffles are a popular trend right now, as evidenced by the several celebrities spotted wearing them. In my opinion, ruffled gowns are the best way to show off this style, but you can also sport the look with a stylish yet straightforward ruffled sari for a daytime engagement appearance. The roka look is ready if you choose feminine floral prints and a boat neck top. With this modern twist on the traditional saree, everyone will be wowed.

Chaniya Choli

All you need is Chaniya Choli to get the look great at your engagement. Full-length Chaniya or kurti, Choli, and dupatta are included. They complement one other and are often purchased as a set. Even the Chaniyas of the dress might be different styles and different fabrics, just like the Cholis of the outfit were mentioned earlier. 

The Chaniya Cholis are a traditional representation of several regions of India, and one glance tells you where they came from. Chaniya Cholis are a well-liked and popular choice for women’s engagement clothing.

Sharara outfits 

Anarkalis, sarees, and lehengas are tired engagement outfits. Shariah suits are the answer if you want to wear classic favorites but want something different. These shararas come with a lavishly embroidered or decorated short Kurti and lovely lacework dupattas. You can even get a job, which is popular now. This costume suggestion is for Muslim brides. Even if you aren’t Muslim, you can exude the Mughal era’s imperial grandeur.

Designer Gowns

If sarees aren’t your thing, try gowns. Gowns are the ideal engagement dresses, but you could experiment with gown types, like the bridal trendy this season. So if you want to look beautiful while pleasing the traditional elders. Consider a color that complements your skin tone, and add delicate embellishments and intense makeup for a stunning look.


A woman’s life truly begins when she becomes engaged. That is a day that should be remembered and treasured. Use one of these outfits to make you look like a diva and leave everyone awe. Beaded, sequined, or lace adorns the majority of the gowns, which are typically floor-length. You can choose from satin, chiffon, and velvet for your engagement dress. Try on several necklines and select the one that best fits your body shape.
