- Wedding: October 2013
I’m attempting to figure out what to wear for my engagement photos and was hoping for some advice.
Let me preface this by saying that my guy is always dressed a little nicer than I am! I am a jeans and t-shirts girl (although I can pretty up when needed), whereas he does not own a single pair of jeans. I know he would like for us to look nice in our photos — not formal, but definitely nice. I’d prefer a jeans/flats/cardigan sort of feel, but when the man voices an opinion about anything wedding, I like to try to oblige, even if it means putting on a skirt 😉
This is where I struggle. Everything I own suddenly feels way too formal or way too casual. I found this dress and was thinking of wearing it with nude wedges, gold jewelry accents, etc. —
The fabric is sort of summery and breezy, the shape works well for a curvier girl, and the color won’t compete with my hair (red) or our backdrop (botannical gardens).
Thoughts? Part of me feels the look will be too dressy and I will not feel like myself, but is that just my inner worry about being schlubbier than my guy talking? 😉
