You’ve jumped over all the planning hurdles and you’re ready for your big move. You’re about to ask the girl of your dreams to be your wife. You have the ring, the perfect spot, the speech ready. But wait…what are you going to wear?
Clothes aren’t the most exciting topic for many guys. However, if you’re going to have a photographer documenting your proposal (and we really think you should! 😉 ), you should really dress the part. Here are a few ideas for picking your outfit.
If you’re taking your future Mrs. to a fancy restaurant, a theatre or a classy cocktail bar, you’ll naturally dress nicely. You’ll probably wear a suit or maybe a shirt with stylish dark jeans. A t-shirt with a blazer on top is also a very elegant combo.
In contrast, if you’re going for a hike and then having a picnic, athletic attire is perfect.
The key here is — don’t overthink it. Wear something comfortable and appropriate for the activities you planned.
One thing to note — make sure that your clothes are clean, stain, wrinkle and hole-free and that they match each other. If you’re struggling to pair your clothes together, your girlfriend is your best advisor! However, if you don’t want to give her any ideas, you can always ask us!
If you want to take it one step further, try to match what she’s wearing. When we say match, we don’t mean wear red if she wears red. Try to find complimenting colours. For example, white, black and grey all look good with red.
If you are inviting a photographer to capture your magical moment, you’ll want the pictures to turn out well. That’s why we recommend staying away from neon or very bright/saturated colours that may clash with each other and take too much attention away from you, your loved one and your beautiful surroundings. Pastel and neutral colours look good on most people!
