Hi Bees! So I have a question..
Fiance and I are getting our engagement pictures done on October 13th in a floral-y spot. It’s called the Myriad Gardens and is full of beautiful, colorful plants. So here’s my question…
Would it be tacky for me to wear black on black? I got a simple, flattering black dress from Express that I wanted to pair with some cute, black, fall boots. Is that too much black? I figured with all of the color of the plants, that black wouldn’t try to compete and clash with the colors. Plus, I feel comfortable and not self conscious about my body in this outfit. I may bring my hot pink heels as well (our colors are pink and black).
Would you suggest another color outfit? Or is black on black okay?

Not tacky at all! And I think bringing the pink heels would be really cute as well. However, two things to consider:
1) What is your Fiance wearing? If he is also wearing black, your torso will disappear into his when you are close to each other in pics.
2) Does it wash you out at all? I love black and wear it all the time but I usually avoid it for photos because I’m super pale. (Although, you could always wear a colored scarf or something if this is the case?).

@bellasperanza: He is going to wear a pink or white polo and dark jeans with black boots. That’s a great point about the torso disappearing! I didn’t even think about that! Thank you!

For our engagement pictures, we both wore jeans and black t-shirts. We didn’t have the disappearing torso problem. I also brought a hot pink sun dress to change into because I just love clothes and couldn’t resist an outfit change. We did ours at the beach and I loved the way the black shirt/jeans shots came out.

We also did our engagement photos in a park/garden place. That said, we wanted to avoid black because of the feel we were going for. I did change into black afterwards for a different feel.
No black when were were in the field and grassy areas.
Changed to black and took a few photos in the fields…
… but IMO, the photos where we are in grungy building areas looked better with black clothing.

i dotn think black works in a garden. you will look out of place. I would wear something lighter.
