I didn’t wear a patterned dress but I have heard the same thing about them not photographing well. Maybe you could incorporate the pattern in something different like a pop of color in accessories. Personally, I think that it would look fine as long as your Fiance did not wear something printed. Otherwise I think they may clash a little bit. Best of luck!

Mine had a pattern and texture and I think it photgraphed GREAT~ Also the patten on this blanket turned out fine as well!

I think it’ll look great! Just make sure your guy wears a solid colored shirt – maybe in the same shade of blue as the dress print? 


Here are some examples of patterned engagement dresses at the place where my friend works http://www.pinterest.com/pin/148548487683969075/   http://www.pinterest.com/pin/148548487681901956/

I haven’t had pics done yet but I will in August in Hawaii. I plan on wearing this dress. I asked my photographer friend about it and she said as long as he is in a solid color it should be fine!
