Summer Engagement Outfit Ideas for Her and Him

June 6, 2018 | nicole

The sun is out and we’ve rounded up a whole slew of summer engagement outfit ideas for her and him to help you beat the heat and nail your engagement session! When it comes to choosing your engagement outfits, there are a few things you want to keep in mind, no matter what you wear. First, you want to coordinate, but not match. Rather than wearing the exact same colors, choose a color palette of complementing hues. Find pieces that speak to each other through color with tone, warm versus cool, and sticking to shared neutrals. Second, consider how the pieces will move when you’re wearing them. Movement in fabric makes for beautiful photographs, so find pieces with elements that flow as you move like long skirts, fringe, scarves, etc. Third, be sure to pick outfits that won’t wrinkle as you go from sitting to standing during your engagement session. Removing wrinkles is typically not part of your photographer’s editing process as it requires a heavy amount of retouching to make look natural. Save yourself time and money by looking for wrinkle-free fabrics. Lastly, don’t forget to show off your personalities! Print, color, silhouette, and accessories are all ways to make your personal style shine through in your engagement outfits.

Ready to get inspired? Check out our picks and mix and match them to create a couple of stylish summer engagement outfits!

Summer Engagement Outfits for Her

We already mentioned the importance of movement in your engagement outfits and ladies, you’re in luck, because loose and flowing is totally in this summer! Whether your dress is mini or maxi, there are tons of flattering, flowing styles to choose from in your favorite color or print. When it comes to separates, we recommend contrasting volume in your top and bottom by choosing a looser fit for one and a tighter fit for the other. For instance, pair culottes with a fitted crop top, or a flowy blouse with a slim-fitting skirt.

20 Engagement Outfit Ideas for the Guys

February 22, 2017 | nicole

When it seems like most of your brain cells are being used to plan your wedding, choosing outfits for engagement photos can be a chore. Whether you’re looking in your closet or shopping your favorite store, knowing what looks great in photos isn’t always obvious, especially when it comes to putting together cohesive looks for couple portraits. We know the ladies get most of the inspiration when it comes to engagement outfits, so this post is just for the guys. Check out our best tips for putting together outfits that feel as good on as they look in photos!

Do Coordinate, Don’t Match

Coordinating your outfits is one of the easiest ways to dress for your engagement photos. Keep the majority of your looks neutral and choose one element to coordinate. A few elements you can choose from are color, texture, pattern, or layering pieces.

Add a Blazer

A blazer can be your greatest weapon when it comes to dressing for your e-sesh. Having a top layer dresses up your outfit, and you’ve got a built-in second look just by removing it!

Elevated Simplicity

If your style leans more minimalist, choose pieces with visual interest. A textured sweater, unusual neckline or hem, or great looking pair of boots can take your look from basic to ballin’.

15+ Outfit Ideas for Spring Engagement Photos

February 18, 2020 | nicole

photo by Kylie Morgan Photography

Getting ready for your spring engagement photos but haven’t figured out what to wear? We’re here to help with over 15 super cute (and super fashionable!) couples whose spring engagement outfits really stole the show. From pastels and floral prints to sweaters for not-so-warm spring weather, these ideas will help you both get dressed to celebrate your engagement in style.

Before diving into our inspiration, here are a few tips for what to wear to your spring engagement photos:

  • Pastels scream spring and look great paired with neutral colors like white, tan, and navy
  • Select a color palette by pulling hues out of a patterned item
  • Mix patterns with a printed shirt for one of you and patterned bottoms for the other
  • Choose a jumpsuit instead of a dress to feel more comfy moving around
  • Speaking of movement, pick pieces that flow as you move for beautiful pictures
  • Show off your personal style by getting inspired by your home decor
  • Don’t forget to accessorize! Having a hat or sunglasses doesn’t just look good — it can be helpful if you’re not sure what to do with your hands (besides, you know, snuggle each other)!

That’s enough from us — get inspired by these fresh spring engagement outfit ideas and shop similar items below each look!
