    I'm a bit confused. I've seen engagement photos before of a couple dressed up in a wedding dress and tux which is not their wedding dress but they chose to get photographed in a wedding dress.

    Are engagement photos suppose to be that formal?? Am I suppose to buy two wedding dresses?! I thought engagement photos were suppose to be more casual and laid back!! What on Earth do you do with the engagement photo wedding dress?? I guess if the engagement photo wedding dress is like a shorter dress you can wear it while dancing after the reception?? Help, I'm so clueless. Haha. Thanks!!

      I've never seen this before. IMO...you should go with the more casual approach. But if you didn't, you could always use you e-photo dress for you TTD.

        Hmm...that is interesting...I haven't seen that before.

        I like the casual dressed, be yourself, in love photos myself. There are a lot of girls who have posted their pics on here (myself included). If you did a search, you could probably get a good idea of what most of us have done.

        Good luck :)

          I've never seen engagement pics taken in formal clothing either. Are you sure they were engagement pics?

            Yah I was blown away by it too!! It was my friend's cousin's wedding photos!! I saw them and I was like, "Wow nice wedding!!" And my friend told me it wasn't her wedding and they were just her engagement photos that she was sending out alongside her invites. Maybe it's a Taiwan thing??

              Yeah, I think it might be a cultural thing. I've seen brides on other boards who booked a day-long wedding shoot, complete with hair, makeup, various dresses and scenery changes, way before the wedding. They had a book made up with the pictures.
