    Is there anything in particular that we are suppose to wear? We are suppose to be getting our pictures done this Sunday and I have no clue what to wear... Ive seen casual photos where the Bride and Groom are just wearing hoodies and Ive seen dressy in dresses...HELPPP!

      What is your style? I think pics look best in your normal clothes, turned up a notch (I mean you do want to look your best).

      Are you super casual - then jeans, sandals, casual shirt would work.

      Always dolled up - then go for a dress.

      Somewhere in the middle - jeans and heels are always good.

      Think of shapes and colors that compliment your figure and skin tone.

      And dont forget...you can always change and have 2 outfits!

        We both wore white button down shirts, faded jeans and flip flops.

          Thank you for your advise, I guess the location where they are shooting us was what was making my wardrobe confusing

            we kept it casual, because that's "us"

            the most dressed up i got, was jeans and heels.

            acutally my siggy pic is probably the most "dressed up" we were.

              Where are you shooting? That might help narrow the suggestions.

                Also, if you are expected to walk around - wear comfortable shoes!!! This is a must!

                When my clients ask me this question I usually say something like smart casual, which can be jeans and a nice top. It's really up to them.

                One thing I do mention is to ensure that the bride and groom have the same level of formality...you don't want him in sweat pants and a hoodie and her in her best Sunday dress...DYKWIM?

                  Oh, and anything with big logos generally doesn't look great.

                    My favorite look is jeans and heels. Then you can switch it up by bringing multiple shirts... maybe a black nice shirt, then maybe a fun purple shirt or something with a flash of color. And then your FI can wear a sweater in some of the photos and then a button down shirt in the others.

                    Just some examples.
                    Stay AWAY from horizontal stripes and busy patterns.
