We've all heard the rules about celebrating a friend's engagement and wedding: NEVER wear white, and never outshine the bride. We agree with these rules (after all it is her special day, she'll do the same for you on yours!), but there's nothing holding you back from looking fabulous yourself!

Choose a pop of color or a hint of sparkle, and you'll be able to party in style. Check out some of our picks for an engagement party outfit above.
