@CocoBellaF I sort of have and haven't. Finding outfits for engagement photos has been more stressful and difficult than finding a wedding dress was and I don't even know why. For the more casual pictures I'm wearing a pair of blue jean capris, a green cardigan, and a navy blue tank top with a pink floral print. I've bought THREE dresses now for dressier pictures and I am torn. The first dress I bought I loved (and still do) but I started thinking it was TOO dressy so now I'm worried and I've bought two more casual dresses and now I just don't feel great at all about any of it. I have a pair of camel brown strappy sandals to wear and they go with all of them.
This is the original dress (you can't tell but it has pockets).
This is the second dress I bought.
And I bought this one yesterday.
@lmhollister where are you having your e-photos done? I LOVE the first dress. I'm torn on what to pick too, I have my casual outfit picked out (black pants, white shirt, cropped denim jacket) but I'm on the same boat as you.
I LOVE the first dress, it's not too dressy at all. Ballgown, that's too much, the first dress is perfect.
@KeptInStitches - Yeah!!!!
@lmhollister - Good luck with the photos! H and I had so much fun with them (akward at first then we relaxed).
Today I'm winding up some work (one more week to go at this job), hitting the gym, and grabing lunch with an old friend. He's going to be shocked I'm changing jobs.
Tomorrow I'll work out in the morning, try to sneak away in the afternoon to buy H's birthday present (no idea what I'm getting him) and we are getting drinks with H's friend and new girlfriend.
Sunday will be a cleaning day mostly. How exciting, eh?
@buddysmom80 We're having our e-photos done in a garden on a historic estate in Atlanta. It doubles as a wedding venue and there's a beautiful massive old stone staircase.
@lmhollister that looks gorgeous! I think the first dress would look great with it, but I also agree with what @cocobellaf you have to wear the dress you feel most confident in!
@lalalaurita White House Black Market for the dress. Alison recommended 2 to 3 outfits and everywhere I've read says the same thing. You start losing your time with your photographer to outfit changes and so it's best to just stick to a couple so you have more time for pictures. We're just doing two. FI would prefer to stick to one...mostly because he just wants to wear his shorts the whole time and not have to get dressed up. He's stubbornly casual.
Thanks @CocoBellaF! I'm really just having such a hard time and I don't know why. I'm probably overthinking it honestly. They all make me feel pretty, although the first one and the last one make me feel prettiest.
@CocoBellaF Who knows??? Lol! Sort of kidding. He wants to wear a pair of khaki shorts for the casual pictures. I have no idea what sort of top to put him in. He has a white soccer jersey I got him for his birthday last year. We could probably put him in any sort of t-shirt or polo and he'd look fine.
For the more formal outfit I don't have a clue! My mom bought him a new white button down and she'd like to see him wear that. He wants to wear blue jeans but I don't know if jeans match the formality of the first dress. He absolutely hates wearing his khaki dress pants but I think they would match the dress better. What do you think? I think jeans and his white button down (he also has a really nice red one that I love him in) would be classic and would look really nice. If he wore his khakis I'd probably put him in a button down we got him from Banana Republic this year that has green, white, and dark purple vertical stripes.
@keptinstitches those are so pretty!
Ah 3 months from today we're getting married!!! My how time flies

@lmhollister, have fun doing your photos! I love your dresses, especially #1, and the setting you posted!
My weekend is dumb. I have no plans for tonight; probably just some studying for my final and maybe watching a movie. Saturday and Sunday will be sad. This is the third out of two months' worth of weekends (except I DO get all of next weekend off, thank God). So this will be me after two twelves:
Can we please skip to NEXT weekend's thread???? I actually have fun plans for that weekend!
ETA, because I don't know who the hell "swizzle" even is.
