People also ask, is it OK to wear white for engagement pictures?
It is perfectly fine to wear white for your engagement pictures, and in fact, some couples even choose to go monochromatic and wear all-white or all-black outfits for their engagement photos.
Do engagement photos have to match wedding theme?
As a pair, you should complement and coordinate each other, as well as wear ensembles at the same level of dressiness; however, you should not match exactly. – Don’t let feelings of awkwardness take over. You want to look happy, relaxed, and in love.
If you still want to feel dressed up for the proposal without the gusto of a gown, semi-formal attire feels a touch more relaxed. A flowy skirt or cocktail-style dress and a button-up shirt, pants and a jacket still feel special for both partners.
Wearing sarees for engagement is definitely a timeless choice that one can make. You can either go for bright colors and fun patterns or simply opt for something minimal and classic. If not, a little customisation does no harm for you to look like a diva on your engagement.
Black might be slimming, but I generally advise couples not to wear it since it leads to every speck of dust and hair being easily caught on camera. Wearing white should be saved for your wedding day, so go with bright hues that will pop from the background.
Getting a professional photographer for your engagement photos is not necessarily mandatory. But having high quality photos give you permanent tangible memories that you can look back on and show your children. This makes engagement photography well worth the time, money, and effort.
Wear clothes that are naturally flattering.
Avoid horizontal stripes, as they are known for making people look larger than they really are. Opt for vertical stripes, which are slimming, instead.
All white is the traditional outfit choice for brides-to-be. While it has a timeless quality, it is very “bridal” in nature, which can really make an impact at your engagement party.
