What to Wear for Pre Wedding Photo shoot
Deciding what to wear on your pre wedding photoshoot can be a tricky task. A lot of confusions go into this, as to if the couple should wear matching outfits, or should you go with outfits that match your personalities or just go with outfits that are casual or should it be a time turner. If you ask us, we would say it should be the outfits that make you look and feel good, as simple as that. At the same time, we can’t find words to stress the importance of these outfits. Have a look at it and you’ll know.
1. Wear Something Flowy
Let the flutters of your heart reflect in your dress. Pick an outfit that flows in the wind. Like the movies you’ve seen growing up, be the lead in your very own love saga. It is so easy to manage on a photo shoot and so versatile and you’ll not go wrong with any funky poses possible.
2. Wear It For The Location
Before spending on the dress, sit down and decide on the location. What you wear for your pre wedding photoshoot should solely depend on where you are going to shoot, the backdrop and the setting. For example, bright colour outfits work well for urban locations and for a dreamy location like this stick with classy.
3. When In Doubt, Stick To Classy
Pre wedding shots are going to happen once in a lifetime even if you’ve planned two or three locations in your mind. They are going to stand still for 30 to 40 years to come. So when you are in a doubt, pick the most classy and timeless outfits ever.
4. Coordinate Your Clothes
As much as you coordinate your outfits to the location, and backdrop it’s way more important that you coordinate with your partner’s outfit. Your outfits may stand alone perfect with the location but they have to go hand in hand with your partner’s. Pick outfits that complement your style and your partner.
5. Stay Comfortable
If being casual is your style, then go with it. Choose clothes that you can easily move in. Do not worry about worry sucking in your stomach or covering up your arms during the shoot. In short, wear something you would wear to a nice dinner date and enjoy the feel. Hands down they are the perfect choice for summers!
6. Play With Colours
Remember your location backdrop and add a pop of colour through your outfit. There is no better show stopper than this idea! Pick colours to round off with your partner’s outfit along with the backdrop. A deep red paired with black and a lush green, a classic black and white with pops of colour in the background can never go wrong.
7. A Gown Can Never Go Wrong
A bright and vibrant colour maxi with a perfect light that will enhance your photos. They are traditional and classy and never go out of fashion. They are flowy, you can twirl, give a lot of motion to your picture that will always bring back memories when you did that. Plus they are a lot of fun and comfy to wear.
8. Choose Royal
Vintage and royal are timeless. Go for an elegant, royal and timeless theme when you can and create a lifelong memory. It’s hard to dress up this way in our daily lives and be in love at the same time. Grab this chance and unveil the royals in you.
9. Know Your Location
If you are like most couples, a little camera shy and people staring at you when you are at the most comfortable self with your partner, pick a location far away from the crowd. Like a beach house, a private beach or a farmhouse. Grab outfits that play your part in the location.
10. Pick The Retro
If you guys as a couple love dressing up and want to experiment with the styles, pick retro. It is so fun and will be the most unforgettable experience in your life. Tweak changes from your daily wear and take a little effort for a fun memory to tell your grand kids.
11. Flaunt The Casuals
You can re-create the first place you meet each other, the first date you went, the first location you shared a moment in the most casual attire possible or add a twist to it. Depending on the theme, go ahead, give the casual look a go!
Yes, matchy-matchy is a cliche. But who else you can be more comfortable and playful around than your partner. It will still be your very little and favourite cliche. Wear matching denim shirts or pants or both. But bring out your style just so you don’t like twins.
13. Pick elegant colors
Another way to coordinate your pre wedding shoot outfits is by picking elegant colours for both your outfits. It will add a classic and rich feel to the frames.
14. Avoid Stripes and Checks
Stripes and checks look jarring on the cameras and sometimes they do more hindrance to your body shape. So it is best to avoid them a full way. Go with solids and colours that compliment each other.
15. Go Full Board On Traditional
Create a sneak peek into moments you’d probably expect in the future, like the wedding you are about to have in a few months. It can add more lifestyle-looking shots in your to be (not exactly) looking wedding dress with a pinch of playfulness.
16. Stick To Solids
Solids colours that are in similar hues add a lot of depth to the photographs. Pick solid colours that you can pull off, and choose different shades in them.
17. Choose Classic Colours
Remember, this picture is going to stay for another 30 years to come and you don’t want to look outdated to that time as well. Pick classic colours that complement each other, as well as they, make you stand out with the backdrop. A good grey and yellow is a classic colour combination that will make you picture timeless.
18. The Classic Black And White
There will never be a time, the ever classic black and white will go out of fashion. A good indoor colour palette will create magic with black and white. You will forever be grateful for this combo!
19. The Pure Whites
A pretty white and a blue denim is a good outfit choice. They will match your casual look and your outlook on life that is to begin. You can play an activity or pass messages like these to add more story to the picture.
20. Show off your style
Play cool with dresses you’ll wear to a date. Or even the ones you wore on your first date to recreate a memory. Your pre-wedding shoot is all about your story, so say it your way! Add theatre and drama to it to take it up a notch.
