What season?


I’d probably wear a cute dress. Something simple that won’t clash with what your DH is wearing.


I like this girl’s dress


– not too dressy, not too casual.




 ETA: You already said summer. I missed that 😉

what’s your body type, can you walk in heels, what colors usually look good on you?

@MrsPanda99:  I would wear a couple of outfits. A nice sundress or skirt and blouse and sandals for one outfit, and jeans or linen pants and a top for the other.

@MrsPanda99:  With your skin and hair color, I would wear red/coral/dark pink. Probably a red simple casual dress, and if you prefer not to walk in heels but you’re not totally clueless, wedges.

how about one of these?












If you feel insecure about your weight you could always add a cardigan on top

Do you have any ideas?


Also – this isn’t an engagement shoot – you already were engaged and married. Yay! Let’s call it a love shoot – because that’s what it is. And, if you are planning on having another ceremony/party – that’d be a vow renewal and celebration. Nothing wrong with that – embrace it!!

@MrsPanda99:  I have engagement pics in 2 weeks and I plan to wear a solid colored sun dress, then jeans and a dark top. However, its accessorizing that I struggle with. I’m not skinny, so I have to layer to make myself look slimmer, so I’m going to need to pair both outfits with cardigans and jewellery that take the attention of my problem areas. (stay tuned for that post lol) I’d go for something fun and flirty, and something casual so you have a nice mix of both. My FI will likely wear jeans in both sets. Maybe a more dressy shirt when I have my dress on.

@MrsPanda99:  Modcloth is an online retailer only 🙂 I’m not sure of their shipping policies, but I’d THINK that they’d ship to Canada!

@MrsPanda99:  what about something layered like a nice summer dress with wedges and maybe a cardigan or a blazer that you can remove for some pictures and leave on for others, that way you get the wardrobe change without having to duck behind a vine to actually change!

Maybe something like this gal is wearing?


Or, if you don’t like dresses all that much and want to be more casual, a flowy, solid color top with some dark skinny or bootleg jeans and a big, chunky necklace might look nice… something like this:


OR, you could go the tank+ maxi skirt route, which would be really appropriate for a vineyard shoot in the summer!
