Hi!!! This is my very first post 🙂 I need help on deciding my engagement pictures outfit. They are this coming Sunday! EEEeeekk!! Let me first explain our setting: We’re having them done at a friends farm (we live in the mitten) there will be cornfields, barns and a private lake. Our golden retriever will also be in the photos with us. We’re going for a natural look but want to fit in with our venue.
I have two dress options: A blue BCBG dress that I scored for $25 or an off white vintage-y american eagle dress. I want to do photos with no cover up, then with the jean jacket, then with the cardigan. I’ll wear my brown boots most of the time but may switch them out for some wedges to dress it up a little when I lose the cover ups. Let me know what you think.
SORRY about the quality of the photos!!
NOW THE WHITE:

I like both dresses but I think the white dress with denim jacket is adorable!

I voted white dress but that grey sweater over it really clashes with the cream color so I’d find a different color sweater if you need to have one.

@Laurenskii: I was thinking the same thing. I bought the sweater before I bought the dress. I was thinking of getting a wine colored one or a dark green.

@K.Stark: I really, really love the blue dress for engagement photos! (Without a jacket…unless it’s cold, then the cardigan)
But I think the white with the denim jack is ADORABLE for a bridal shower or something.
Congrats! And have fun!

Both dresses are really cute! Can you do both? The white is romantic and vintage, and the blue has great saturated colour. I’d skip the cardigan for both. Do the white with and without the jean jacket, and with the boots, and then do the blue with pumps…make it more dressy. What is the blue like without the belt or with a different belt? That way you’ll get two totally different looks!

I say blue with the blue jean jacket!

Oooh, white with the denim jacket!
But both are cute (I would do the blue with no jacket/cardigan).

I love the white dress with the demin jacket, and the blue dress with no sweater/jacket. Very cute!!

@K.Stark: I like the blue dress only without a jacket. I voted the white dress b/c it looks good on its own and with the coverup. My favorite look is the very last pic!

I voted both
For your dressier photos – go with the blue dress and wedges, maybe a skinnier belt. I also like the big belt, the blue dress, boots and grey cardigan.
Then for fav outfit I love your white dress, belt, boots and jean jacket
Mix it up! I love engagement photos that have a few outfits!!

I vote for the blue dress without the sweater. That dress is great. I like the whole “white because your the bride thing”, but that blue dress is definitely a winner.

I like both dresses. You could wear the blue one on its own and the white one with the denim jacket if it’s cold – or on its own, it’s very cute. I don’t like the cardigan as a coverup option though, it’s too long to go with either of the dresses, IMO.

I voted both, no cardigans though if you can help it! Or maybe do a cropped denim jacket 🙂 The cardis totally hide your awesome shape and make the dresses look a bit dowdy.
Can’t wait to see the pics!
