I'm going to be 25 years old in November but I have yet to hit that sweet spot where I'm getting five wedding invitations a month and going to two weddings a weekend. I attended my cousin's bridal shower and wedding last year but that's pretty much it.

A few of my sorority sisters have gotten engaged/married, but not anyone I'm super close too. That's fine with me because I'm in no rush to grow up and the sooner I can put off bridesmaids dresses and Bachelorette parties, the better!

On that note, my co-worker got engaged this summer (while she was on vacation in Japan!!!) and her festivities are starting. It's really exciting to hear about wedding planning and to actually personally know someone getting married.

Her engagement party is in a few weeks and truthfully, I have no idea what to do. Gifts? No clue what to get. Etiquette? No idea what to do. Outfit? Someone help me!

After talking it out with a few of my friends and other co-workers, it seems that for this occassion, simple is best.

But I also found this incredible style guide to help first time goers like me figure out what to wear to the wedding occassion of your choice.

Sometimes I think it's almost easier to be a dude because all you need is a tux or a suit, you just have to figure out which one is appropriate.

After all of this knowledge, I decided that I'm going with a simple, black J.Crew dress that still has the tags on it. I bought it at the beginning of the summer because I figured that I could always use a simple, black dress and I was right! (The one I have is out of stock, but here is a similar one)

Below are a few of my other picks for a Semi Formal Dressy Casual engagement party, bridal shower, wedding!
