My fiance and I have engagement pictures this weekend (I know a little late in the game) and I don’t know what to wear. I was engaged before to a different guy some few years ago and him and I had engagement photos taken (we never got married) now I’m trying to think of something to wear but I keep falling back on what I wore the last time I took engagement pictures. I wore and black dress with iridescent navy blue stripes on the sides, blue tights, a black cardigan sweater, and black wedges. Any bees have any suggestions?

jordanl1027: I like engagement pics when there is a change of clothes- something casual like jeans and something more dressy.

maybe go for a completely different look! Jeans and a sweater with boots or a pencil skirt and a nice blouse.

What in your closet makes you feel most beautiful? IF you could only wear one outfit the rest of your life, which would it be?
Wear THAT. Your confidence will show!

I wore a white dress for mine and a blue cardigan to add some colour. What is the weather like this time of year where you live? Also where are you having them done? Our’s were on the beach so the white and blue was appropriate but your outfit choice may very depending both on weather and location!

We just did ours on Friday! We did a casual look and night out look. For casual i wore jeans(not sure why i wear mostly dresses) and a white top while for night out i rented a dress from rent the runway. If your shoot is casual and you wont be doing a change of clothes, find a dress that doesnt have a lot of patterns, that’s comfortable and makes you feel sexy lol.

I would suggest wearing something different than what you wore for the previous engagement photos. What you choose could depend on the type of settings, the colors of your surroundings, the weather, and what colors are most flattering on you. I think solid colors or subtle, non-distracting patterns tend to be best.
My fiancé and I took outdoor photos with green trees, purple flowers, and vineyards, so I chose a beige dress and a light pink dress. They both had texture and one had gold details, but they weren’t bold enough to detract from us or the scenery.
I also suggest searching on Pinterest or online for engagement photos that can provide some fashion inspiration. It helps to give you ideas 🙂

It’s still warm here. Some days are hot others are starting to vool off a bit but all around still warm out. We’ll probably be by one of the nearby lakes or fields. (There are lots of lakes and lots of fields around here haha)
I should probably mention I’m pretty tall (5’11”) too. I have glasses or contacts but I’m trying to decide which to wear
