Choosing what to wear is never easy and when it comes to pre-wedding shoots, it can be a truly herculean task.

There are a variety of clothes for you to choose from and as they say, having too many choices can be a problem as well.

There isn’t much space for experimentation on your wedding day. However, that’s what pre-wedding photoshoots are for! You can experiment with your outfits, locations, setting, etc on your pre-wedding photoshoot.

It can be the perfect way to tell your own story and make it as close to your heart as possible.

In this blog we hope to solve your confusion, here are some outfit ideas for your pre-wedding photoshoot:

1. Know your pre-wedding Location

The most important thing while picking a pre-wedding outfit is to keep in mind the location. The location and setting play an important role in the choice of your outfit. For example, if you are shooting in a field of grass, colors that stand out like red or white would be most suitable.

Here the couple chooses a traditional outfit that goes well with the backdrop of the Choki Dhani Chennai, a Rajasthani themed resort and restaurant.

2. Bring out you style

Try choosing outfits that represent you as a couple for your pre-wedding. Don’t be afraid to try something unconventional if that’s what defines you. Bring out those neon colors and stand out accessories.

Our suggestion is you to go with a semi-formal or casual outfit and make sure you both match your outfit in terms of color and the overall vibe of your dress.

3. Make sure you sync

Color combinations play one of the important roles in your pre-wedding photoshoot. You want to be sure that you both are in sync and your colors click.

For example, if she is wearing green, he may want to wear black and if she is wearing pink, he may want to wear navy blue. These combinations ensure that you both don’t stand out individually but compliment each other.

If you are constantly worried about how you look or getting your clothes dirty then you will not be able to have fun. Remember pre-wedding shoots are supposed to fun and expressive of yourselves as a couple. Choose clothes that make you feel comfortable, this will surely translate into your photos as well.

5. Go Formal

This is a relatively safe bet and can make you look really good. Although pre-wedding shoots aren’t supposed to be the place where you would go with formals, sometimes it works. The bride will look plenty gorgeous in her dress and the groom will look handsome too in a tux — you really can’t go wrong with this one.

As you can see formals works really well in this above pre-wedding shots that we took. It Mostly depends on the location you choose, how grandeur it is, and how the couple looks in accordance with the location of the pre-wedding shoot.

6. Try a Punjabi themed Shoot

There’s a reason why this is popular in the north— a kurta pyjama for the groom and a salwar kameez for the bride is a match that is made in heaven. If you are up for it, you can have an authentic Punjabi look for your pre-wedding on a beautiful location looking across the shores, and that’s a sight to behold.

7. Go traditional

Why not a small teaser before the actual wedding? This can give you a sneak peek into your actual wedding. However being a pre-wedding photoshoot, you can experiment and add some playful elements to make it look more casual. Hey, not every photo you take ends up in the pre-wedding album anyway, so why not experiment a little.

If are looking for choosing the colour for your pre-wedding outfit we suggest a Solid pastel colour will do the job, as it gives a very classy and modern look.

A solid navy blue and bright red as you see in our pre-wedding shot above is a wonderful colour combination to go with, as it gives it a more traditional and rich look in the photos.

9. When in doubt choose white and denim

Too confused? Say no more, you cannot go wrong with classic white. A plain white top with denim tends to look great in your pre-wedding photos. It will also look casual and give you the comfort to play around especially if you are a relatively younger couple.

10. Make sure the level of your dressing syncs

If she is wearing a formal dress and he is dressed in casuals — you may run the risk of not being coordinated. This can’t be stressed enough —  if you are going for something formal, make sure both of you are dressed in formals. If it’s a casual look, make sure both of you are casual in picking your outfits.

we recommend you to have a talk with your photographer to get a better idea if you are still a bit confused about what to wear.
