14 Wedding Dress Ideas for Stunning Engagement Photos

There's nothing better than flipping through all the beautiful pictures once the celebrations are over. With engagement photoshoots becoming more popular these days, here's a perfect selection of stunning engagement dresses that will make your photoshoot truly stand out.

It's a great chance to try out a few wedding looks before the big day, too. Here are a few tips on how to look effortlessly glorious in your engagement photos.

1. Reflect Your Personal Style

Choose a dress that makes you feel comfortable. Think of this shoot as more of a wedding rehearsal. Find the dress that feels like "the one" or the dress you really want to wear on your wedding day but have some hesitation about. You know that feeling? We still recommend avoiding wearing your dream dress to a pre-wedding photoshoot, but what if your dream dress is actually a few different dresses?

2. Complement Your Better Half — But Don't Match

It is advised to avoid choosing matching outfits and busy patterns. Instead, opt for complementary colors and solid prints to keep the focus on you. If you wear glitter or beads, make sure your beloved also has some shiny details in their outfit.
