I bought a super-cute dress this summer for our engagement photos. It was very much like another one that my FH had admired a year or two before, and it is white, which he likes. However, we had intended to shoot the photos a few months ago and got bumped by various work commitments annd a hurricane. Now we’ve rescheduled the photos at last and I am trying to figure out if a new outfit is required! It is only in the high 50s here and most or all of our photos will be taken outside.
Can I wear some tall light brown boots and maybe a scarf or wrap to bring this eyelet dress into fall? Or is it time for a shopping trip?

I say wear it! Its just a white dress and its a great idea to “fall” it up with scarf and boots. I think it will look great. Maybe if you were asking about white slacks and white blouse…be something different 😉

@vilthuril:Wear it ! It’s very cute , paired with a scarf and boots would be perfect! or you could get a colored sweater.

I don’t buy into the no white after labor day nonsense but it would depend on your surroundings. Eyelet does say summer to me and I’d find it odd it you were like frolicking through piles of leaves in that dress.

I voted no, but not because of labor day.. my photog actually suggested that we not wear white (unless it was a very small amount) because it is distracting.. She said jewel tones work best

Honestly, I think it looks a little summery. I’m not opposed to wearing white after Labor Day, but with the eyelits and such, it does look like a summer dress. It is really cute though.
If you do decide to wear the dress, be careful about the panties you wear underneath it. I can kinda see them through your dress in the photo.

I think the “no white” rule is cancelled out by the fact that it’s wedding related.
My personal opinion is that you should wear whatever you want anyways.

I voted no, not because of labor day but just because it looks really summery and wouldn’t really look right with boots and a scarf.

I think if you did wear it, it would have to be accessorized out the whazoo–I don’t like the sleeve and it’s a bit boxy. Maybe with a belt and a cardigan and some boots and an awesome necklace.

I don’t think the white is as big of a problem as the eyelet fabric. The fabric is just so out of season. Sorry–normally I would say color doesn’t matter!

Im not opposed to wearing white after labour day. That dress is super cute but it is very summery. Plus i find it to be very see-through so I don’t think it is the best choice. Sorry!

i dont think its the color that’s an issue, I think the eyelet fabric of the dress would look odd paired with boots and a scarf. It’s just not a fall dress.

I like it! Where are you going for your e-shoot? I think that will make a difference in terms of how it reads in photos. I think some heavy accessorizing will bring it into fall nicely. maybe scarf, boot, and definitely a belt to break up the white. Even a cute hat for some of the shots!

The dress looks great on you! I never worry about what people say I “should” wear. If you want to wear it, it’s no one else’s business. You will look fantastic!

Will many people know when you took the photos, really? What’s the weather like? If it’s like here in Canada where it’s cold, grey and there’s hard frost and snow this time of year…. no.
But if your photos can still look like it’s early fall or even late summer, then wear it! Brides wear white after Labour Day all the time, and don’t get called savages. ^_~
Unless the weather gives it away: who is going to know you didn’t take the photos when you had originally planned?
