When you’re planning a wedding, it’s easy to feel like you’re handing over your wallet and your left arm to everyone and their brother. Some of the costs are easy to plan for. You know you will need to pay for your dress, food, drinks, and quality wedding photography. However, it’s the unexpected costs that really get you down. Costs like the fee for hemming your dress because it was made too long or the additional charge for the special color of Gerber Daisies you requested from the florist.
Today, pre-wedding photo shoots (engagement shoots) are a popular addition to wedding photos for many brides. And, I believe that if you are investing in these photos you will cherish for a lifetime you should be prepared for the costs that might come along with them. So, without further ado, here are the top three pre-wedding shoot costs you should consider.
1. A Timeless Outfit
For both you and your hubby-to-be you are going to want to choose an outfit that will stand the test of time for your engagement photos. Quality blue jeans and a cute top or simple dress for you, and jeans with a classy button-front shirt for him. If you really want to make an impression and elevate your engagement photos, check out Rent The Runway, where you can rent designer clothes for a fraction of the cost!
2. Hair and Makeup
Most couples use their engagement pictures for save the date cards and even gift them to their parents and other family members before the wedding. If you are having quality engagement photos taken it is likely you will do the same. Therefore, it is not unusual to want to have your hair cut/colored, eyebrows done, or purchase new makeup before the shoot so you can look your best!
3. Quality Picture Frames
Last but not least, I can guarantee that when you see your engagement photos, you will immediately fall in love. And, when you fall in love with them you are going to want to hang them in your home-which makes investing in new picture frames almost mandatory!
