The breeze seems to flow in rhythm and the sun seems to rise and set in harmony all of a sudden. While the wedding date seems to move closer, the time for a dreamy pre-wedding shoot is here. While you and your partner are discussing the details, here is how you could dress for it.
1. Do The Opposite: Photographs find harmony in imperfection, so don’t blend in with the background. Dressing opposite to the setting is poetry in visuals. If you decide that your pre-wedding shoot is at an upscale and urban setting, dress traditionally. Wearing your traditional dresses, would enhance the beauty of the picture. For instance, wear a sari to a beach photoshoot and ask your partner to wear a kurta. If your shoot is at a historical monument, wear your dresses and let your man shine in a well-tailored suit.

2. Don’t Wear Similar Colours: No matter how cute it might seem to you, similar colours would spoil the shots completely. It would not only look tinted with the same shade but would also make your images end in the ‘awkward family photos’ bin. Just wear complementing colours and trust us, it looks stunning. It enhances the grace of your silhouette which naturally reflects in the picture.

3. Be Dramatic, But Subtly: Photographers love a bit of drama. Actually all of us do. You could oblige the photographer’s creative senses by wearing something that is dramatic yet subtle. If you are planning to wear Indian, wear something with a flowing ‘dupatta’ or a flowy ‘pallu’. If you are wearing western, go for something that has a considerably longer train. They would flow dramatically and would help the photographer frame stunning shots that will echo its beauty for a lifetime. Be careful with the drama though, an overdose will spoil it completely. Remember, it’s a pre-wedding photo shoot, not an audition for a Yashraj movie.

4. Mind The Makeup: The pre-wedding shoot is a visual narrative of your love. It is important to look like yourself. Don’t apply makeup in a way that your ‘would-be’ forgets to recognize you. And advise your hubby the same. Just do your primer well and a subtle layer of matte products. The hair needs to be done well though, so oblige the photographer with a blow dry at least. Ensure that your better half also follows the same.

5. Be Yourself: For most couples, posing is quite a task. Some take hours in leaving behind the awkwardness while some just take minutes. While you think it’s the strength of their relationship, it’s something absolutely different. It’s about being yourself. If your hubby is a jeans and tee shirt guy and you have got him to wear a bow tie and tuxedo, don’t you dare blame him for being awkward. The awkwardness can be left behind by just being normal in front of the camera. If you’re not a born poser, wear what you and your fiancée would generally wear. Just be comfortable and let the photographer do the rest. He is charging a lot anyway.
