Congratulations! You got the rock. Have you been staring at your finger nonstop? The fun is about to start. Before you go wedding crazy, now is the time to share that beautiful ring with the rest of the world with some country engagement photos. At Sheplers Western Wear, we have the western style clothing ideas you need to walk away with the cutest, Instagram-worthy photos of you and your future hubby.
Country Wedding Engagement Photo Ideas
The first thing the bride needs to do is figure out what to wear for engagement photos. This task can be daunting, but our online western store is here to help.
A popular option is a flowy western dress. White is an obvious choice, but you can also go for fun colors like pink or yellow. Make sure the dress is not too short or tight so that you can sit comfortably and easily change poses. Look through our new selection of women’s western dresses to find the perfect piece for your rustic country engagement photos.
If a dress is not exactly your style (that’s okay too, it’s your engagement photo shoot), a pair of flattering jeans and a cute top works just as well. Avoid shirts with words or logo as they can look tacky. Try instead a solid-colored women’s sleeveless top or a Ryan Michael western wear shirt.
When it comes to country engagement photos, you of course need a pair of pretty women’s cowboy boots. While it may be tempting to get the most glamorous pair you can find, keep it simple. You want the focus of the pictures to be on that diamond and your love story, not your feet. Make sure you follow our guide on how to clean cowboy boots if you are not buying a new pair.
You can add some accessories, but once again, do not go overboard. A pair of stud earrings, a small necklace, or a plain belt can pull an outfit together without taking away from the real focus, the ring.
Engagement Picture Outfits for Him
Do not forget about the groom’s outfit. Unless your man has some serious fashion style (not likely), you may want to step in to help him get western cowboy clothing that you approve of. Remember, the last thing you want is for your outfits to clash or for your future husband to show up in a tacky shirt you cannot stand.
A tasteful men’s western shirt from Stetson and a pair of good jeans is a classic look that never goes out of style. Don’t forget a clean pair of cowboy boots. Make sure your fiancé doesn’t try to wear his favorite pair of work boots that are permanently stained in mud and have soles that are practically falling off. If your man is in need of a new pair, our men’s cowboy boot store offers thousands of styles to choose from.
The most important part of planning your country engagement photos is to have fun! When you look good, you feel good, so take your time finding an outfit you love. Browse our western store online for a wide selection of country-style clothing and accessories to get that perfect look for both you and your new fiancé.
