Choosing a wedding gown is probably one of the most stressful things to tick off of your list, but when you find the perfect fit, it'll surely be worth the time, effort and money. But nowadays, prenup shoots are held as well to basically give your families and friends a little "appetizer" for your wedding day. Couples choose a location and theme that suit both their likings — and it's usually the beach.
All sorts of prenup shoot themes come to life, so here comes another thing to add to your list: a prenup shoot gown. Not to mention the kinds of fabric, the cuts, the color, and everything that comes with it, you'll have to decide on these things or simply let your trusted designer do the magic for you.
Speaking of trusted designer, we know it may be overwhelming to browse all those Pinterest boards and online catalogs so you could have pegs in mind. But with Francis Libiran, a Filipino fashion designer, it'll certainly be a piece of cake.
Francis is an A-list designer whose original and high-quality creations have graced prestigious red carpet events and numerous fashion shows all over the world. He designs wedding gowns, evening gowns, menswear, corporate wear, dresses and even accessories.
If you'll be going for a beachside prenup shoot but you still haven't decided on your attire, here are three important tips from Francis himself:
Your beachside shoot will surely require a lot of turns and slow runs to get that perfectly timed shot, so remember to choose a dress made of lightweight fabric. With a flowy dress, you won't have to worry about restrictions in movement, especially if you'll be walking by the shore. Silk chiffon and fine soft tulle would be great fabric options for your prenup shoot gown.
You wouldn't want to trip over your gown train or have those cloth clips seen in the photos, so make sure that the gown fits perfectly and complements your silhouette. You may opt for a simple design for your beach wedding but the fit must be seamlessly perfect.
Do not just choose a dress because it looks good or it's what on trend. You should fall in love with your gown. Pick a design that will make you happy each time you see it. Your prenup shoot gown should boost your confidence and make you feel totally beautiful on that special day.
