Whether you just said yes and are planning your engagement party or if your wedding is a few weeks away, here are some of my favorite winter looks from Rent The Runway for all your parties (and a few picks for your friends too).

Engagement Party

Think dressy when it comes to your engagement party. You are celebrating your upcoming wedding for the first time so wear something festive. This M Monique Lhuillier little black dress with a gold lace overlay makes a sophisticated statement.
> Rent it:, $85

Bridal Shower

For your bridal shower, you'll want to dress up but try not to look too formal. A cute pleated skirt silhouette is playful while the darker hue and leopard print of this Mark and James by Badgley Mischka dress give it a fancy feel.
> Rent it:, $70

Bachelorette Party

Even if you are planning a night of debauchery, that doesn't mean you have to wear a skin tight spandex mini. There are lots of classy going-out looks. This Tracy Reese dress is undeniably short but the dressier jacquard fabric and higher neckline give it an elegant touch.
> Rent it:, $75

Rehearsal Dinner

The actual day is just around the corner now! Play up the vibe of your wedding style and dress. For instance if you are planning to wear a boho wedding dress, choose a rehearsal dinner outfit that gives off that same feel. Going for a classic style? Wear something similar to this flowy A-line Badgley Mischka dress.
> Rent it:, $125

Guest Wear

While this is your day, your guests are pretty concerned about what they should wear too! If they start asking you what your dress code actually means, here is how you break it down. Casual means a simple short dress without a lot of frills. Cocktail attire implies a short dress in a darker hue or with beaded details. Black-tie is ultra formal so tell your friends to pick a floor-length gown in a dressy color (like this gold Issa gown).
> Rent it:, $285
