    I say take them now and get it out of the way. You still have a couple of days to search for suitable oufits.

    Take it now especially if you plan to use the e-pics for your STDs!

    I would go now – I am sure you both have some suitable clothing in your wardrobe if worse comes to worse!

    I would say take them now…even if it’s just the picture for the STD..you can always take more later if it comes down to it. You probably have something in the closet that is suitable if you can’t find anything that coordinates. My fiance and I wore matching colors in one and than we did casual what we wear everything in another setting..

    I would just take them now and get it done. Tell your Fiance once you’ve shot the photos it will be one less thing to stress about! And I wouldn’t worry too much about wearing the perfect outfits. E-pics are usually pretty casual. I think of them as the photos of you two looking “normal” before the uber-dressed-up wedding photos. And the clothes are much less important than the feeling between you. Just pick out a few of your current favorite outfits and wear those, no need to shop for new unless you hate all of the clothes you wear now! Eliminating the shopping part would also eliminate some of the stress and probably help convince your fiancé that photos aren’t so bad. 

    Good luck and remember to have fun with this!

    Trust me… take them now. You will want them for wedding related things and last minute will be BAD! I just got ours 2 weeks ago (finished that is) and I wish I had them months ago for our March 2010 wedding.

    I didn’t read the other responses but I do believe you should take them now.  We’re doing ours this weekend too.  We had a horrible time trying to find outfits to coordinate.  If he found something worth buying I couldn’t find something that’d compliment it and vice versa.  It kinda got stressful because we’re both currently working a lot of hours so we didn’t have all the time in the world to shop.  So, in the end we just decided to do white shirts, jeans and nice shoes- done!  It’s not the most sophisicated look but we’ll be comfortable and we’ll have fun.  That’s what Im’ thinking your fiance may like.  You know how guys are simple!  Also, do them now because you’ll have a lot of opportunities to use them and frame them and show them off.  Have fun if you do decided to do it!
