I bought this dress about 2 weeks ago for our engagemenr pictures, looking through other engagement photos it seems like a lot of people went the more casual route (jeans and a cute shirt). Do you think this is appropriate for engagement photos? I realize everyone is different but I would love to hear some ladies opinions (all I have had was my fiances’ lol).
I don’t know if it matters or not but the photos are being taken outside, in a field with a rustic barn.
What do YOU think??
(The belt is removable)
Oh and the flash makes it appear brighter, the lace is white and underneath it is a nude color, not white.

It would be cute with cowboy boots or some flat oxfords. I think with heels it would look out of place with a rustic vibe.

I think it’s cute and agree with the boots suggestion! We had 3 outfits: jeans and sweaters, casual dressy (with cowboy boots!), and dressy dressy. If you’re still on the hunt, you should check out Spool72, they have adorable rustic/boho dresses!

I think that’s cute! I was also going to recommend pairing it with cowgirl boots, kinda like this photo (from Pinterest – don’t know these people, but they’re cute, haha!):

I bought the same dress 🙂 I think it would look cute with nude or not-too-flashy gold flats. As PP mentioned, you may be able to do some outfit changes during your session, if you want to wear something more casual too.

I wore a dress during my engagement photo shoot…..
But then again, I typically wear dresses so it was not out of the norm…..
I think the dress with a rustic background would really make the dress stand out….
You could change the belt to a colored one and perhaps get matching shoes… just an idea……

I think it’s fine.. I planned on wearing 2 – one casual and one dressy.. but my photog didn’t think our casual outfits would photograph well together since one was dark and one was light… so we wore 2 dressy outfits instead! it’s all about what you want . THat dress could be dressed up or dressed down too. I’d wear heels and go dressy… it’s your engagement, it’s allowed to be dressy
