So I’ve been trying to find an outfit for my engagement photoshoot next month. I really wanted something that was cute and flirty, and dressy without being FORMAL. I had stuck in my head that it would be nice if the dress was in our wedding colours, since I’d like to use the photos on a Save the Date card, as well as in our guest book.
So I find the following dress, and am trying to decide if I should keep it or not!
Do you like the dress, or think I can do better?How would you accessorize it?Should I consider more than one outfit? Any suggestions for a different look?
Thanks in advance!
And here is a shot of my FI and I, in case it influences your decision at all!

Cute dress! I would definitely pick out more than one outfit though just to have a little more diversity in your photos.

Very cute dress and I love the color! I think you can make it look even better with some good accessories and a cute bag. I agree with bubbly, definitely have another outfit to change into. Since you are doing a dress already maybe a pair of jeans a cute top? Anthropologie has some adorable tops

That dress is lovely! looks great on you – i definitely think you should keep it! BUT i don’t think it goes with the cute and flirty idea you’re going for. I’d save that for a nice dinner on your honeymoon. I’m thinking something more like this:

I think it’s adorable! It does have a bit more of a formal feel to it. For some reason I’m picturing a big floppy hat with it… Anywho, I do agree, pick out another outfit or two to get different vibes in your photos. Plus you want to be as formal/casual as your FI. It’ll look funny if you’re in a pretty dress like that and he’s in jeans and a T.

Thanks for the opinions everyone 🙂 I’m definitely going to look into a second, more casual, option as well! FI tends to dress fairly formal, so it wont be a problem for us to match in some more dressy shots, and then do a second set of more casual ones!
I appreciate all the input!

OMG I love the dress!! I can see where it’s a little too dressy for what you’re describing. Maybe simple to minimal jewelry and some really pretty flat sandals, that would really dress it down. I think it’s the fabric that makes it a little more formal, but it really is gorgeous! Where did you get it?
If you use it, I would def do some flat sandals and as another look, dressy jeans and a cute top.

What about the white dress you are wearing in the second pic? I like that one!
