If you’ve had a recent engagement session with us, chances are you’ve seen our engagement session style guide. Dressing for a photoshoot is way harder than choosing an outfit for going out to dinner, and just a little less stressful than finding your wedding dress – after all, it’s not uncommon to plaster your engagement photos on your Save the Date’s, officially announing your wedding to all of your family and friends. That’s why deciding on what to wear for your engagement session is so hard – talk about a dress with a purpose!!
So, you want to be dressy but also don’t want to look like you’re decked out in a prom dress, you know? You ask yourself, and your friends, where the heck do I find a dress with length and flow that’s kind of like a bridesmaids dress, but also not really? The answer? Lulu’s!
We may be on the topic of engagement session looks right now, but Lulu’s is the place to be for your engagement party dress, bridal shower, bachelorette, and even the rehearsal dinner outfit! This is the dream destination for timeless, neutral, feminine dresses that leave it clear as day that you are the star of the show.
We suggest wearing a floor-length, flowy dress in a neutral, solid color. Think dusty blue, champagne, blush, sage, and more! That pastel family is the place to be. Typically, we prefer you avoid deep, bold colors like plum or fire-truck red, as the contrast can alter that ‘light & airy’ look we’re known for. When choosing a color, also take your surroundings into consideration – you don’t want to blend in, but you also don’t want to clash. Neutrals tend to keep everything from looking too busy, but don’t camouflage yourself – avoid flesh tones against the sandy beach or sage in a garden of greens!
