What to Wear to Your Spring Engagement Session
From trendy to timeless, get inspired by these outfits for your spring engagement session.
No need to save your “something blue” for the wedding – ring in the season with a lighter shade. It strays from the darker hues of fall and winter, and it’s easy for him to match by wearing a blue button-up. Tips for accessorizing: dress up a more casual dress blue with tan or nude heels and golden jewelry to complement the hue.
Any fans of “The Devil Wears Prada” know this isn’t the most groundbreaking fashion statement. But floral prints are celebratory of the season, timeless and easy to accessorize for any style. If you’re not going for the matchy-matchy look with your fiancé, patterns like stripes or plaid complement a floral print dress.
No Shoes Required
If there’s no forecast of freezing temps to ruin your spring engagement session, spare yourselves the trouble of shoes. This is perfect for a boho style or beach e-sesh.
But if you’re living somewhere with an unpredicatable weather, layer up just to be safe. Start with a versatile piece, like a simple, chic dress, that works with interchangeable accessories. A dress like this one would work well with sandals for warm weather, but it’s just as stylish with a cardigan, boots and even a scarf for chilly temps. Win-win.
The Classic LBD
No matter the time of year, you can always get away with a little black dress. A sleeveless option like this works well for a warm weather black tie session, resulting in classic engagement photos that will never go out of style.
Take a cue from these two and channel your country side. Western, boho, whatever style you’re going for, a pair of stylish leather boots with a lace dress is perfect for a desert or rustic session.
Some say it’s only acceptable to wear white starting Easter or Memorial Day weekend until Labor Day, but it’s become more of a norm to break out the white outfits outside of that time frame. For an early spring engagement session, you don’t have to go overboard – try white pants with either a colorful top or a classic black blouse. After all, you’re the bride-to-be so the color is pretty fitting.
From ballet flats to tutu inspired skirts, channel your inner ballerina. Flowy maxi skirts and lace-up flats are on point (no pun intended) if you’re going for a more simple, boho look. Or, rock a tea-length tulle skirt to add a little prima ballerina flair to your vintage style.
If you’re planning on a late spring engagement session, break out the juicy hues of summertime. Complete with a colorful backdrop, you’re guaranteed some pretty eye catching, modern photos.
Do you consider yourselves more offbeat? Pick a fun theme to match your style and the setting. These two opted for a retro inspired city engagement session, sporting bright colors to enhance both the theme and sunshine.
