I think polka dots would look fine..just don’t have a bunch of different crazy patterns at once..my Fiance wore a striped shirt and they turned out fine

Sounds like a simple print and polka dots are always cute, IMO. I’m no pro but I would wear a simple print, I think it should be ok

I agree that a simple print would be OK.  My photog recommended solids but I’m sure he would have been ok with Dots.  I wouldn’t go all 70s psychedelic….for a multitude of reasons.  ;o)

My photographer just recommended that if one of us wore a pattern, the other wore solid. Didn’t want to clash.

I think polka dots would be fine, but you may want to camera test your outfit with his to make sure that it’s not too distracting to the eye.

EDIT: I just realized that you asked for a photo. Here are 2 from our shoot. We both had prints on.

We did one person with print and one person with plain for both of our outfits.  I think *almost* any print would be fine, but just make sure your other outfit doesn’t clash. πŸ™‚ I actually loved having prints for ours!  Here’s a couple of ours to show prints:


(sorry so big! Still can’t figure out how to change that even resizing in photo editor!)

I wore a print and my photographer loved the dress and it looked fine through her view finder. I’m still waiting for the official photos. I think the issue is to find a not too busy print with just a few select complementary colors. As such, I think yours is okay. It probably also depends on the setting of your photos too. If you do print, especially a big print/pattern, then Fiance should be in a solid or a very fine print, like pin stripes.
