We know you are head over heels excited about planning the wedding of your dreams! From finding your venue, to saying YES to the dress, and booking your favorite photographer… you have so much to look forward to! While wedding planning is a lot of fun, it can also feel overwhelming at times. Which is why we put together 3 of our best tips to make sure you get the best getting ready photos on your wedding day.
That gorgeous wedding dress I was mentioning earlier, the one you said Yes! to, the one you’ve been dreaming about ever since you were a little girl, the one your groom is going to see you walking down the aisle in to be his wife, that dress is SO important. That dress will carry on memories that will last a lifetime! The moment you put on your dress is when everything starts to feel real!
If you are anything like us, the getting ready photos are important to you. You’ll want to look back at your wedding pictures and remember those moments before the ceremony. That’s why where you decide to put on your wedding dress is extremely important.
Tip #1: Available Light – The more windows your bridal suite has, the better. If you love the look of bright and airy pictures, natural light is the key to helping your photographer capture your dream images for you. Getting ready in a room that allows a lot of natural light in will go a long way.
Tip #2: Trust Your Photographer – Maybe your venue doesn’t really have the most spacious room, and that’s alright. If your photographer thinks that it would be better to step outside for a few “getting ready” shots, trust them. They know what they are doing. Sometimes, the tightest and darkest rooms don’t make for the best pictures. If wedding photography is important to you, trust your photographer! You won’t regret it.
Tip #3: Keep the Room Clean – Gently remind your bridesmaids to keep the room tidy while getting ready. A smaller room can quickly go from nice and clean, to cluttered and dirty by the time you get 4 or more girls, their hair supplies, makeup, and dresses all in one room together! By getting all hands on deck to do a quick clean up will ensure that you and your bridesmaids will stand out more in the pictures.
We hope you enjoyed these tips on how to make the most out of your getting ready photos!
