so I just all the sudden set our engagment picture photo shoot for Friday..becaue with FI schedule it is hard for him to get in to town and it worked out with our photographer for late friday afternoon. but i was trying to figure out dates that would work, and randomly added in this friday in the dates because he is coming to town. and it happened to work. my FI is very much not looking forward to doing these or pics on the actual wedding day but is because he knows I really want them. and his response to this friday was “ok yea fine schedule it let’s just get it over with so I don’t have to keep thinking about it” that’s fine i’m not upset by that response at all becaue I know it is a lot for him to do it at all.
now I’m just feeling unprepared because it was all the sudden and I’m not really sure what I want us to wear and these pics are going to be used on our tables at the wedding as well as save the dates, and our home, etc. Should I have not rused into doing them Friday or will it be fine and they will work out?
I also don’t really know what to wear or to pick out for him-cause he would wear whatever

You seem to have plenty of time to have your engagement pictures, with a wedding date almost a year away. If you’re wedding was in a couple of months, I might understand the rush. Or if your FH was going to be away for an extended period of time, or your photog out for an extended period of time. If none of those apply, can’t you just schedule it for a month or so in advance.
If you still want to keep this Friday — I know there are pics everywhere of other Bee’s engagement sessions and they look great! Google some pictures of attire and ideas. Do you have anything in mind of where you want the pictures? Do you have a theme for them?

I scheduled my e-pics on very short notice, a few days before we took them. We are getting married soon and honestly were not going to do them because of budget constraints. The photogs we interviewed offered to do a preliminary session to make us feel more comfortable with them since they are just getting into weddings and have been shooting for about a year. I stressed and was not looking forward to the pics, then ended up having to work late so I had no time to get ready! They turned out great, and now I feel silly for stressing over everything. Take a deep breath and relax, I sure wish I would’ve. I am sure they will turn out great whichever you decide!

Just wear something that you would wear out to say a night dinner or lounge, be yourself.
