What Do You Wear To Your Own Engagement Party?

One of the things I've always wanted is an engagement party. Funny thing about an engagement party, though: you can only have it at a very specific time in your life. It's not like saying "you know, one of the things I've always wanted is a really awesome Mac computer" and then running out to the Apple Store and buying yourself a really awesome Mac computer.
