Hey Bee’s! I need some advice on what colors my fiance should wear for our Engagement Photo session.
I have three different dresses I am likely to wear throughought the shoot, so I want soemthing that will look nice with all of them.
We are an old fashioned couple and I am very into the 50’s, so I want him to match my 50’s swing dresses with some nice pants, a nice button up and suspendors. Possibly a jacket as well, but I need the right colors!
I have put images of the dresses I will be wearing below. Any ideas on what colors my fiance should wear? I am also including a poll for peopel to tell me which dress they like best!

I actually love the lemon dress the most, BUT, I think that the royal blue dress is timeless, and that you won’t regret having worn it when you look at your photos in 20 years 🙂

I’d wear the first two of o were you. The third is too similar to the first with a white background and too similar to the second with the bow.
How about a red shirt for him?

Hm I say he wear blue or black pants with a white button up shirt and suspenders. Also the first two dresses are my favorites!

I personally would get rid of the lemon dress and do the first two only.
As far as what he could wear, I would do navy pants and a white button up.

I don’t know why, but the lemon dress reminds me of a 50s housewife scrubbing the floor on her hands and knees. Maybe I’ve seen it in a photo or something. I think the blue would work best because it’s a solid color.

Totally the blue one!!!! plane colours are so much better in photos because they are less cluttered.
Think about where you are having the photos taken. Location? what dress suits the location best.
All photographers i have spoken to prefer people in solid colours.
As for your partner. i would have in in a solid colour shirt that is either white or compliments the blue or the accessories that you are wearing.

kristin36890 : This is actualyl a bit of a compliment to me. I am really into the 50’s style so if the lemon dress honestly makes you think of an advertisement from the 50’s, it is exactly what I want!
becstar1102 : I liek the blue one alot, I think it is classic, but I will likely do a wardrobe change part way through, as I want a few options. We will be doing our shoot outside in a large park that has wood-sey pathways, concrete wakl ways, a lake and many other options for beautiful photo’s. Will likely wear neutral small heels with the dresses!
jade31 : I agree, I will probably wear 2/3 on the day of. Definitely the blue one, and I am leaning towards the lemon dress for the other. I just love how classic 50’s style it is, plus, it fits my personality and style to a T!
Thanks for you advice Bee’s! I think I will have him wear Navy pants with a white button up and suspenders! ^_^

I love the second two. With you on the 50’s look because it’s so feminine and pretty.
