Fall Engagement Session: What To Wear
Hello, beautiful people! Welcome to #FASHIONWEDNESDAY! It is officially the middle of the week so, only two more days until the weekend. That’s dang exciting. I hope you all enjoyed the Zombie Tutorial feat. Adam on Monday (if you missed it — catch it here), I have watched it like 20 times and I laugh every time. My husband’s a comedian I swear. I still have 2 more Halloween makeup tutorials coming so don’t forget to come back for those. BUT FOR TODAY: I am focusing on my pretty ladies who are getting engaged this season! I am going to show you all 3 outfits that are PERFECT for your fall engagement session.
WHAT TO WEAR TO YOUR FALL ENGAGEMENT SESSION
Outfit #1: Dress up with a skirt and booties.
This was one of my favorite pictures. I knew I wanted fall colors the second Adam proposed last year, so I booked our photographer (Michelle + Logan Photography) literally three seconds after Adam got on one knee. We talked, and I told her that I wanted bright leaves and outdoor shots. That meant, weather permitting, I could wear those fall colors I so desperately wanted to break out. I found this purple skirt and matching necklace literally the day before our pictures. It is just the right pop of “berry” to the turning leaves. I had Adam in a navy button up for contrast (also he looks really good in navy) and khakis. ALSO: Michelle found a matching colored leaf to display my engagement ring on. #fate
Outfit #2: Casual with a sweater and jeans.
This outfit was perfect because it was way neutral. Adam wore the pop of color with a navy+red button up. We contrasted nicely with the red and yellow leaves. It was less dressy than our first outfit so we can show the world that we get ~d o w n~. It was very classic “fall”. Make sure you and your honey aren’t wearing the same colors at the same time. There needs to be neutral/pop of color balance between the two of you or it starts getting messy with too many colors.
Outfit #3: Cardigan + floral layers.
I am the world’s biggest cardigan fan, and it really reminds me of the autumn season, so it is no surprise I chose to wear one for our engagement session. I chose a neutral grey button up for Adam. He stands out from the leaves, but doesn’t detract from the overall picture. I love berry, so I made sure to include that color in each outfit selection. I made sure that was really the only pop of color in each picture so that I didn’t have a mess of color.
So. Those are my 3 outfit suggestions when deciding what to wear for your fall engagement session. It is definitely my favorite time of year, and I will always be so happy that we got to take ours last fall when the colors were so spectacular. SO. My takeaway tips for you?
- Choose an accent color and plan all your outfits around it. That will help you create a cohesive look on your wedding invitations.
- Make sure you switch off who wears the accent color. Because it’s just plain rude to hog it all to yourself.
- Make sure you choose the right photographer. I love these pictures because they really capture the excitement and love Adam and I have for each other. That is the best part. Michelle is amazing because she makes you laugh and you are completely comfortable with her.
I hope that all my sweet engaged ladies find help in this post! It is such an exciting time in your life, to be engaged. I loved wedding planning. Our wedding could not have turned out any more perfect. I am still in awe. And, the best part is, after the wedding…you get to keep the love of your life forever! 🙂
