What to wear has always been a dilemma that us ladies face. Whether it’s for a casual day out or for a girl’s night out, it doesn’t get any less frustrating! So, on an important day as your pre-wedding, we can imagine that you may be anxious about what the best outfit would be for your photos. We have rounded down a few options for your Paris pre-wedding outfits that we absolutely adored and that really stood out to us during the shooting.

Dress with a Statement Bow

You can wear a simple dress that’s not too heavy or bothersome to walk in and add something to it that makes it pop, our favorite type of accessory is a big bow! Whether you wear a long dress or a short one, an attachable bow on the back of your dress that pokes out the sides is very flattering. This is also the perfect look for the ladies who want to keep it very elegant but at the same time add a little fun to it. Who does not love a bow?

You can opt for a big bow on your pre-wedding dress, it will look just mesmerizing. If you want to be fashionable, a birdcage as a hairpiece instead of a traditional veil can be a good option as our bride did. Don’t be afraid to try bold things for your photoshoots!

Also if the dress has a beautiful back, a bow helps to emphasize it and make it look stunning.

Bow dresses leave a lot of space for your creativity, not all of them are the same and even the bows differ in sizes and placement. For example, the bow can be settled on the side, which adds a touch of whimsy, femininity, and grace. It can be large and dramatic or small and delicate, depending on your personal style and preferences! You can be cool and elegant at the same time by mixing bow and pockets, or you can opt for a more classic look.

Another unique option is a short dress with the bow and tail dangling at the back. This speaks the highest volumes!

A Little Spice – A dress with a slit

Next up is an option for our sexier ladies out there who like to keep it spicy. A dress with a slit going up the side, giving a little peak when walking by. This is such a very glamorous and boudoir-esque look, so you want your fiancé to be stunned when he sees you then this is the one for you!

We do not recommend a tight-fitted dress as you won’t be able to move much in it and the pictures will not come out as natural, flowy, & candid. This daring design not only adds a seductive allure but conveys confidence as well. And we love a confident bride-to-be who is not afraid to embrace her inner femme fatal!

Be extra – Fashion-forward dress

Last but not least. For trendsetting couples who love to experiment with fashion, there are plenty of options to explore for your pre-wedding. This is your opportunity to go all out and make a statement with your pre-wedding shoot attire.

Consider bold prints, unconventional silhouettes, and unique color combinations. You can over the board with asymmetrical cuts, avant-garde designs, experiment with mixing textures and combining unexpected pieces.

The key is to create a look that is fashion-forward, daring and showcases your fearless approach to style.

You can also go for a simpler dress with a spicy particularity and add an accessory to level it up!

Daring colors

Paris pre-wedding outfits don’t need to be always with usual colors. You can dare also with colors and not just with the dress design.

Let’s show your true colors, which are beautiful!

Incorporating daring colors can add a touch of vibrancy and excitement to your pictures. Opting for a popping color dress can make you stand out and create a bold visual impact, adding a touch of drama. It’s not enough to convince you? Then there’s more to it! These daring colors can bring life to your photos and complement various backgrounds and locations.

You can go for neutral colors as well if this is more your style.

These create a more dramatic look and will make your pre-wedding surrounded by mystery, which we love!

Sparkling dress

If you’re looking to add a touch of glamour and sparkle to your ensemble, a sparkling dress can be a brilliant choice. These radiant dresses will make you shine like a star, especially if you’re opting for a night shoot! Here you go with some pics to better visualize how mesmerizing it is.

For a modern and edgy twist on a sparkling dress, consider embracing metallic shades. A metallic dress can add an enchanting element to your pre-wedding celebrations. Choose from shades like silver, gold, rose gold, or even copper, depending on your personal style and the theme of the shooting.

Remember, the key to finding the perfect sparkling dress is to select a style that reflects your personality and makes you feel confident and beautiful. So, embrace the shimmer and sparkle, and get ready to dazzle everyone around you!


Feathers have long been a symbol of opulence and grace, adding a touch of beauty to any outfit. Incorporating feathers into your pre-wedding dress can create a truly captivating look. Whether aiming for a bohemian, vintage, or modern aesthetic, incorporating feathers into your ensemble can create a stunning visual impact.

Consider a feathered skirt or a delicate feather-trimmed gown that will sway with every step you take.  It will create graceful movement which will be just amazing o pics!

For a more subtle approach, you can choose a dress with feathered accents on the bodice, sleeves, or neckline, providing a delicate yet impactful detail that enhances your overall glamour.

Flowy dress

I think at this point, you could have imagined that we love movement in the photos. It makes the pics look more dynamic and different than the static ones.

You don’t need to make big movements during your shooting. So, don’t worry, we will not ask you the impossible but just to enjoy your time!

Short dresses make it easier to move and this is an advantage for when you decide to shoot in particular locations. This couple, for example, decided to enjoy the Parisian sunset from a rooftop!

And, if dresses are not your vibe then fear not, because a two-piece might be exactly what you want but have not even thought about. It will still look fancy and make wonderful photos especially if you go for a material that has more of a sway in it. You can also add that bridal touch to your short dress with a veil. Long ones can create a contrast with the short dress and more movement, which will result in amazing pics!

Let’s keep it casual

You can go for a black long dress if that’s what makes you feel the most authentic version of yourself!

Or consider a flowy midi dress paired with the shoes you prefer, sneakers, heels or even sandals. The most important rule to follow for your pre-wedding outfit is “There are no rules, just be yourself”!

Don’t forget to accessorize with a hat, a scarf or sunglasses to add your own touch to the outfit. Our bride-to-be opted for Girl Boss sunglasses and a hat!

It will allow you to add a hint of mystery or a touch of sophistication to your ensemble.

If dresses aren’t your go-to, fear not! A stylish combination of a blouse and skirt is equally fashionable. This will result in a sophisticated yet relaxed look.
