Pre-wedding shoots have become an important wedding ritual these days. From choosing the right photographer to hunting for a perfect location, everything is trickier than what you believe. And on top of that, what’s more confusing is choosing the right set of outfits for you and your partner for your pre-wedding shoot.
We are here to make your hunt easier and give you a roundup of some of the best couple outfit ideas for your pre-wedding shoot:
While wearing matching clothes with your partner on a normal day might seem like dressing up as twin kids but it can definitely turn out to be a good outfit option for your pre-wedding shoot. For summers, you and your partner can, for example, opt to don matching plaid shirts over white tees and denims. It looks sophisticated as well as casual at the same time. And for winters, what you can do is pick out two pairs of matching custom-made hoodies and shoot against a bonfire.
Travel down the memory lane
If you and your partner have known each other for quite a while, there are chances that you remember what you both wore or what kind of hairstyle you donned in those early dating days. So, for your pre-wedding shoot what could be a better idea than taking outfit inspiration from yourself back in those good old days. For example, you can opt to wear some easy-breezy short dresses or dungaree outfits and throw your hair into two pigtails or ponytails for a not-so-mature look. And your partner can select a plain white shirt and pair it with Black Suspender Galas and matching Bow Tie.
One can never go wrong with a monochromatic look. It is the safest option as it never goes out of style. To rock your pre-wedding shoot, all you need to do is pick out some vintage backdrop to shoot at and go black and white with it. For example, you can wear a long white ball gown and set your hair into a neatly done bun with suitable silver accessories. And your beloved can layer a classic Tuxedo Suit over a plain white shirt and accessorise it with a black bow tie.
Break the rules
Instead of religiously following others and going by the regular monotonous trick of wearing contrasting colour outfits for your pre-wedding shoot, opt for dark shaded couple outfits. Break the rules and go from simple and romantic to bold and classy. Take some cues from this couple that is all eyes in this couple outfit. The combination of plum coloured gown, that the girl has teamed with sleek, straight hair, and Navy blue blazer, that the guy has layered over a basic white tee and teamed with black pants and black loafers, seems perfect to the eyes.
Try some floral prints
If there’s one trend that speaks from a mile off and is too good to ignore, it is the trend of floral print clothing. You should definitely consider it as an outfit option for your pre-wedding shoot. It may seem too autumnal for year-round wear, but you and your partner can actually wear it all year long and across climates. The only thing you need to do is choose your print wisely. See this couple outfit idea, in which the girl has donned a beautiful white off the shoulder dress in floral print and has paired it with lace-up sandals in tan, and the guy has worn a floral print shirt with beige coloured pants.
Comfort comes first
We all have seen people spending massively on unbreathable clothes for their pre-wedding shoots but what’s the point of spending so much when one doesn’t even feel comfortable wearing them. Try wearing something that is not just comfortable but also out of the box. Take outfit inspiration from this couple that is donning a matching, super comfortable nightwear. Won’t you pillow fight with your partner after marriage just like them?
Are you and your partner ardent lovers of bikes? If yes, then there is a great possibility that it gets hard for the two of you to go a day without talking about your babies (bikes). So why choose to do away your pre-wedding shoot without it? Use it as an accessory to make your pre-wedding shoot seem more exclusive. Grab your biker jackets, blue denims, leather boots, black aviators and most importantly your dazzling beauties and get started. If there’s something else that you both like in common for example say cars, you can use them as an accessory too.
Flaunt your Punjabi Avatar
Punjabis are famous not just for their big fat weddings but also for their traditionally rich dresses. If you and your partner have a thing for Punjabi dressing or are still not over the trends of the years gone by, then you can definitely try wearing some quirky Punjabi couple outfits for your pre-wedding shoot. For example, you can wear a salwar kameez in a vibrant shade say red or pink and team it up with a contrasting heavy embroidered phulkari dupatta. And your partner can wear an evergreen black or Navy blue pathani suit. Once you are done deciding over your outfits, choose a suitable village-like backdrop for your shoot.
Don the Wardrobe’s MVPs
No matter what your style is, one thing we can all agree on is that lehenga-choli for ladies and Kurta-Pyjama for guys are the wardrobe’s most valuable players. They can add the perfect tinge of ethnicity to your pre-wedding shoot. And if you have planned your wedding for this season all you need is this pair of Lehenga Choli in pastel peach and Kurta Pyjama in pastel blue that Pooja Banerjee and his fiancé wore for their pre-wedding shoot. If not pastel shades, this combo of a digital print lehenga choli for the girl and the evergreen black coloured tuxedo for the guy is a perfect pick for a pre-wedding shoot.
