2024 Luxury Summer Engagement Photo Outfits for Brides

As someone who adores fashion, I love keeping an eye out for outfits brides would love for their engagement sessions. If you’re currently planning yours for this summer and have a healthy budget for wardrobe, you’ll love these ideas for luxury summer engagement photo outfits!

2024 Luxury Summer Engagement Photo Outfits for Brides

Zimmermann Summer Engagement Photo Outfits

I am truly, utterly in love with Zimmerman. Their use of so many natural fibers in tandem with their incredible style has kept them high up in my list of loves for designers. Opting for their linen or cotton pieces ensures that you will have breathable engagement photo outfits for a warm summer session.

If you are someone who wants to incorporate a white dress into your session and also desire for that dress to have a pop-up color, here are two beautiful options. They are very close to being the same dress, but one has the color pop in the bodice while the other has the color pop farther down the skirt.

Looking for something colorful and playful? I adore this darling little dress with its pleated skirt. You can choose to style it with a belt, as shown, or let the dress shine all on its own.

If you want your look to be playful in a more resort-style fashion, this golden dress is perfect for you.

Don’t love dresses? Opt for a colorful pair of shorts that you can pair with a blouse of your choice. Dress your look up or down depending on your shoe choice.

Marchesa & Marchesa Notte Summer Engagement Photo Outfits

For my own engagement session, I wore a stunning Marchesa Notte dress. For my wedding, I wore a ready to wear colorful Marchesa dress. Needless to say, I am in love with this brand.

For brides who want something that looks quite formal for their summer engagement photos, I recommend this stunning silk dress.

Giambattista Valli Summer Engagement Dresses

I receive so many ads for Giambattista Valli on Instagram and love the dresses, but they are a bit out of my price range. However, if they’re in yours, you’ll love these for your engagement photos. These luxury summer engagement photo outfits will never be forgotten.

This floral dress looks so effortlessly chic.

Other Summer Favorites

I actually purchased this matching set from Cara Cara and loved it, but the color wasn’t right for me. As soon as they come out with a Cavin-flattering color in these fits, I am absolutely buying it.

For brides who love matching sets with texture, this purple set fits the bill.

Staying on the purple train, this Carolina Herrera top and skirt set lives rent free in my mind.

The design of these two Bronx and Banco dresses has me swooning. My only complaint is that they’re made of viscose, but perhaps others won’t mind.

A little bit more of an affordable price point, relatively speaking, this Reformation dress is 100% silk and is perfect for brides who like to be more modest in the front and wow people with an open back.

At even more affordable price points, Jessa Kae has beautiful, girly dresses and an extreme variety of sizes. Her dresses look beautiful on every size and I love how playful they are. The dress on the left reminds me a little of the Oscar de la Renta dress Taylor Swift wore to the 2021 Grammy’s.

Needle and Thread has a similar size range and many of their dresses can be purchased in maxi, midi, or mini dress lengths. I adore their designs and own a floral mini dress from one of their older collections.
