Do you think that a white dress should be worn for engagement pics? Or does it even matter? My fiancé and I are getting engagement pics done at the end of January but it’s never too soon to start planning ahead in my opinion lol. Just wondering other brides opinions!😊
I wanted to do this but i didnt think of it until after i bought a new dress for the pictures. I did wear a white sweater. I had to incorporate white somehow. I don't think theres anything wrong with it.
I’ll probably wear a navy blue floral dress for formal pictures and a hockey jersey for our more laid back ones (FH is a HUGE St Louis Blues fan and we got engaged the same week they won the Stanley Cup), so I won’t be wearing white, but if you wanted to I see nothing wrong! You are the bride!
I think engagement pictures should capture the couple in their true form. So you should wear your favorite color and style that you would normally be drawn to. You’ll have enough formal pictures in white (or some shade of) from your wedding, so have fun with the engagement photos. I wore a dark teal dress which totally fits my personality.
Personally I am not wearing white for our engagement pictures! I picture my engagement pictures next to my wedding pictures and that’s just a whole lot of white lol. I’m going to wear a floral dress instead!
I think that there are going to be other times to wear white like your shower or bachelorette party so I would choose a color that you love for these pictures. And maybe 2 outfits with one being something causal that shows you and your FH and then maybe one dressy.
I don't think so. I feel like it takes away from you being in white on your wedding day (depending on how fancy you're going). If its a short white cocktail dress, I think it's fine. I chose to wear a long red tulle dress for my engagement photos!
You can do what you want. To me, how special a white wedding dress is ( to someone who wears one) is somewhat diluted by wearing white at other wedding parties. One of my sister's in law has pictures framed and displayed. In a long white dress ( engagement party), in a white dress (1 shower) and a white jumpsuit ( shower 2) , in a white summer suit ( last day at work shower) and dinners at her bachelorette and rehearsal wearing other long white dresses. Sadly, white is not a good color on her natural complexion, so she wears a heavy masque of make-up in all of them. And not much like herself. The invasion of the woman in white is boring. It always seems like a bad joke to me when someone celebrates such a great time in their life with neutral, colorless fashion choices.
It is honestly whatever YOU want! We did two sets of pictures (one we were gifted with) and I wore white to one and then a mustard yellowish summer dress to the other and I love both sets of pictures. I would say, look for an outfit you love and if it is white, thats a plus!
