We’re getting our engagement pictures taken next month. My photographer suggested getting a bouquet for pictures.
Is this becoming a trend? I don’t know anyone personally that’s done it, but I have seen some engagement shoots with bouquets.
Do you think it’s too much or do you like it?

I never saw engagement shooting with a bouquet or heard of it. I probably won’t do it myself because I would like to save something like that for the actual wedding day.

So you think it’s too bridal looking for engagement pictures? I’m really stuck. I think it’s pretty and adds to the pictures, but I also kind of seeing it being over the top too.

I think it would be odd and would look too much like your wedding photos but just not in wedding dress & suit/tux. Can you do something like a flower crown if you really want flowers, or maybe do a few shots holding a flower, but save the real bouquet for the wedding?

I have never seen engagement pictures with bouquets. That is usually reserved for bridal and wedding pictures. You could hold some flowers for pictures if you want, but I wouldn’t have a full blown bridal bouquet.

I see this all the time and I do think it’s weird. One flower or a flower crown looks pretty, but a bouquet makes it look like you’re practicing your wedding photos with props.

I have an engagement bouquet, although it’s much plainer and simple than what I would have for my actual wedding (it was a bouquet of red roses). This is because we were having very formal pictures taken inside a studio. I think it would be weird unless you’re shooting in a studio, if you’re having engagement pictures outdoors, it makes more sense to have a small bunch of random wildflowers as props than a carefully arranged, ribbon bound bouquet.

Nope just an unnecessary way to spend more money

I like the idea of having a few flowers but a full bouquet seems over the top.

I don’t think it’s “too bridal” but I do think it’s an artificial expense. It makes it look like you’re spending money just because you can. I hope this isn’t a trend.

Seems like an odd suggestion but if you like it go for it!

I think it’s odd. And although this is off point, I have to say that I now regret wearing a white dress for our engagement photos. Granted, it was a short sundress and nothing like my formal wedding dress but still – it’s seriously the only other pro photos we have of ourselves and I just wish ithey looked even LESS bridal than they do…..if that makes sense. So applying that logic, I’d stear clear of a bouquet too.

I’ve only seen this once, and I thought it was very weird and confusing. I was trying to figure out if they were actually wedding pictures or like a post elopement shoot.
