So you’re engaged. Congratulations! What better way to commemorate the occasion than with a fun engagement photo shoot with your photographer. You could use these pictures to announce your engagement to the world, use your favorite pictures on Save the Date cards, use them on your wedding website and so much more.
But really, the best part in our opinion is the shoot itself. Planning it with your photographer, choosing the location(s) and the outfits and then getting dressed for it is so much fun. You and your fiancé could make a day of it and visit some of your favorite spots and hangouts, and have multiple outfit changes to suit your mood and tell the story of “you”. An engagement shoot is the perfect time to let your personalities shine as there are no rules to follow. From casual to chic and formal, you can have it all!
We rounded up some of our favorite dresses and accessories for engagement pictures and are certain you’ll love them too! Best of all, you’ll enjoy wearing them again and again. Check them out and get inspired by these five glamorous engagement shoot outfit ideas!

Rehearsal dinners are more than just an evening affair to “rehearse the wedding,” the night before your big day—it’s a wonderful occasion to meet members of the “other side of the family” or “ extended members of your new family” and bond with your loved ones in an intimate setting. It can be just as formal or informal as you like! Just remember to include everyone in your wedding party with their significant other and anyone who has traveled down specifically for your wedding as well as the officiant.
Start your wedding festivities off on a delicious note at one of these 5 hot Houston rehearsal dinner locations!
