I am sooo super excited!!! Just wondering if anyone had any last minute advice? Cute ideas to show off our date for a fall wedding?
P.S. I have never really had professional pictures taken — Do I need to wear more make up than normal?

I would say the amount of makeup depends on your skin. If you have relatively clear skin, I would do a tinted moisturizer and powder. What you’ll really want is some sort of powder to keep your face from shining too much, and the tinted moisturizer will keep it in place.
Just remember to smile genuinely! Our photographer had to keep reminding us of that.
As far as showing off the date, I cut out numbers on the Cricut and covered them with teal glitter, then pasted them onto textured rustic gold paper. I’m not sure how it turned out, but my photographer said they looked good! 🙂

What about outfits? Did you coordinate with eachother or with your wedding colors or neither?
Right now I have two outfits chosen for both of us
A green sweater, skinnies, tan boots for me
Blue jackets, white t shirt, jeans, brown shoes for him
a purple and grey t shirt with jeans and grey heels
Grey sweater with jeans and grey tennis shoes for him
What do you think? the second outfit goes with our colors (pumpkin, plum, charcoal) BUt do you think it will look weird to have me in short sleeves while he is in a sweater????

Personally, I did a grey dress with a red belt and red shoes and he did a white button up with a Batman shirt underneath (we’re dorks :)).
Our colors are blue and white, so we’re far from coordinating with the wedding. We didn’t want to be too matchy-matchy, but you definitely won’t want to clash with each other.
If his sweater is really bulky it might look a bit odd, but if it’s not a heavy knit, I think it will be fine!
