I am so excited to bring a new series to Coastal Bride where I will be featuring some of my favorite engagement style. As a wedding photographer I am constantly asked for engagement fashion advice. It can be really hard to select clothes that look good on camera and compliment your fiance’s outfit. For my very first engagement style post I have partnered with Southern Proper, a Georgia clothing company that has recently started designing women’s wear. Make sure to check out their adorable clothes for your gent as well! For your engagement it is important to chose clothes you are comfortable in. You want to look and feel like the best version of yourself. You are only a bride once, so take advantage of it and wear some white. This top has a subtle eyelet pattern which is not too distracting on camera and I love the feminine scallop pattern of this chambray skirt. I finished off this look with these shoes that I can see myself wearing throughout summer and into the fall and my favorite necklace that goes with just about anything!
Since engagement season is upon us, I thought it only appropriate to do a post on some of my favorite engagement style inspiration. When it comes time to choose an outfit for your engagement shoot it might seem like nothing in your closet will work! You want to compliment your fiance but not appear too matchy-matchy. And while you want to look your best, it is also important to stay true to yourself and your style so that years down the road you don’t regret your outfit choice. Pastels and solids look best on camera but if you must wear a pattern make sure that only one of you is wearing it and it compliments the colors of your partners outfit. So take a cue from these fashionable brides and grooms below and don’t fret, as long as you are wearing a smile everything will look good! Coco Tran via Style Me Pretty // via Jose Villa
