    We're having our Epics done next weekend in a park, so we're doing the casual thing. Jeans and heels for me. Depending on how cool it is we might be doing light jackets as well. October in SW Ontario is unpredictable - it could be snowing or it could be 30 degrees (30C = 86F for my American sistas)

      My photog suggested that we wear black shirts, saying that it really makes the pictures pop. We ended up both wearing white... Hahaha... oops... Oh well, I'm so happy with how our pics came out... even in all white.

        I say wear whatever you feel comfortable in. For ours, FI and I both wore old worn-in jeans with holes and frays because our first shots were on his harley overlooking lake Michigan. Then our second half were taken on the beach and I wore a white cotton flowy skirt and he wore a light weight button down and khakis.
        In an old mission you could get away with casual/jeans...maybe some funky jewelry..or even a fun sundress. I wouldn't go too formal.

          You do have to stick with clothes that are you guys! But on the flip side... you should stay away from anything to "busy" for shirts. They will distract from the main show... YOU! I find regular earthy tones work best. But if your punk-rock with purple hair... that won't work either! So be yourselves and see what you can come up with.

            i would personally pick something i knew i looked good in, that flattered my body. if you are in any way uncomfortable with how you look that day, it could show in the photos. just make sure his level of formality matches yours, and wear something that is typical of what you guys normally would wear.

            pick a couple options, set your camera timer, take some pics, and post a poll! BDW brides love to tell people what they should wear, LOL!

              Black, blue, and brown all look good, as they will help lead the viewer to your faces rather than your clothes. Casual clothes like jeans or khakis work great, but one time I photographed a couple and they got all dressed up and their images looked really cool. So, just go with what you like the best and have fun!
