- Wedding: June 2013
My husband and I are visiting his parents in Turkey in February, and will be taking “American style” engagement photos while we are there (we love to take pictures/have pictures taken and are planning to have more than our fair share of wedding/engagement pictures taken by the end of our marriage spectrum, — NYC City hall wedding photos, NYC engagement photos, Upstate New York wedding photos, “day after” photos, engagement photos in Mersin, Turkey, Turkey wedding photos…. and the list might go on, lol)
Our photos will be taken on a beach. Here are some photos of the location:
We were talking about our clothing yesterday, and he is planning to be in the typical “beach wear” for men… something along the lines of this but likely long sleeves:
So… I’ve been searching for an appropriate maxi dress for me (my husband specifically requested a maxi dress, and since I’ve been looking for an excuse to buy one, I thought “why not?”). Some things to consider: 1. It’s february, and though Mersin is more moderate than NY, it will likely be in the 50s. This might not be a huge deal, since the shoot will likely be less than an hour, but I don’t want to be totally freezing. 2. It’s Turkey. His family is very progressive, but I don’t want to look like a prostitute. 😉 3. These pictures will last a lifetime, and like all of us worry, I don’t want to look tooooo “trendy”. 4. My husband requested blue. The background is very blue, blue is our favorite color. Blue is “my color”. Enough said. However, I am also looking for timeless and romance. Hmmmm…
Ok. I’ll share the dresses I’m considering, and would love some input. 🙂
This one is my in the running for my favorite. That bow in the front is so sweet, and the colors are right up my alley.
# 2. This one has the right colors, but the pattern is a little “eh”, though I do really like the style of the dress. Not too sexy, not too frumpy.
# 3. This one could be nice. I don’t really have anything else to say about it. 🙂
# 4. This one could be nice… but I’m worried that its too “clingy” (ie. belly pooch could be a tiny problem).
#5. Pretty classic maxi dress.
#6. I like the style of this dress, but am not at all psyched about the fabric. The seller does custom orders, and is the maker of the dress above (#5) so she might be able to swing something for me. 🙂
# 7. Hmmmm….?
Dress # 8:
Not blue but so pretty!
