Soooo, we are supposed to take our epics this month and I swear I have no idea what I want to wear!!!! I have an idea but then again I don't, I see clothes but either it's too pricey or it doesn't fit!! I am getting very frustrated and annoyed but at the same time I can't wait to take pics.. Ugggh my life I tell you...

My question is how hard was it for you ladies to find something to wear or even try to match the MR? Im wondering if i even need to match or even if we should worry about getting all dressed or should we just wear something casual????

  • Like with everything else we're still in the planning/idea phase. We both like dressing up, so we know we'll take those pics. We need to decide if we want the kids in the pics or not.
  • I wore something simple - sleeveless black dress w/ skinny belt (think michelle obama), magenta heels and a yellow statement necklace.  My FI wore jeans, a graphic tee in yellow with black writing and a light sweater with black & white thin stripes.  We matched but it wasn't matchy-matchy.  Don't over think it and just try to glam up your everyday style a bit.

    I actually got my dress from Forever 21 for like $25 and I got tons of compliments.

    Good luck!

  • Well Tira I went along with what the theme of the wedding was to be...Vintage!

    We were going to the WWII museum in NOLA and taking pics our outfits were him in pants, vest, button down and bow tie with a kangol style hat (but the dressy vintage one) me in a halter jumper with sheer gloves, and vintage hair...Then we decided to do a dark, distressed jean with white button downs and banging shoes in the French Quarter, then we were doing sorority/fraternity pics, college shirt pics, and a family pic oh and we did pick out something dressy too...girl we had a two hour window and our photographer allowed as many clothes changes as possible...

  • We just wore clothes we had. Since we did it with the littles too we all tried to be in the same color family. But not too matchy. Peach/red/cream colors. And jeans.

  • And think of location. I wanted casual since we were at a nature park. So we just wore regular clothes we would wear to take a walk.

  • Loving the dress!! I would probably pull out the blue for him. Dress him in dark slacks, dress shoes, and a tie for a Sunday casual look. Or do a full dark suit accessorized with the blue from your dress. If he's not a suit/slacks guy, you could do a dark jean with a button up collar open, a nice shoe (not tennies), and maybe a hat. Dress your son in maybe a polo, same jean/shoe/hat idea as your FI. Whatever you decide it'll come together, I'm sure of that. Good Luck, and I of course wanna see pics when it's all done...LoL.
  • Thanks He wants to do pics in Miami now lawd smh this man lol
