I want to give you a few tips for beautiful bridal prep photos as you plan your wedding day! Together we will get the images you’ve been dreaming of! My focus for today is on custom hangers, wedding prep robes, poppin’ champagne, and the first look with your bridesmaids! 🙂
Details are the key for the perfect wedding album, and I am a sucker for your wedding day details! You’ve spent months and months sorting out your wedding colors, the bridesmaid dress colors, the shoe colors, you name it, so why shouldn’t I capture all of those pretty things for you?!
Tip #1: Custom Hangers
Whether it’s just a custom hanger for your own wedding dress, or a custom hanger for you and your bridesmaids, the little details count! Not only are custom hangers gorgeous, but they end up becoming a take home gift for your bridesmaids to hold onto for years to come. Who doesn’t love little keepsakes?!
Tip #2: Wedding Prep Robes
I don’t know about you, but I absolutely adore matching bridesmaid prep attire! Not only does it make for beautiful bridal prep photos, but you and your ladies will feel great wearing them. It also guarantees that your bridesmaids will be wearing something cute as they get ready for your wedding day! Win win in my eyes!
Tip #3: Poppin’ that Champagne!!
Who doesn’t love a little champagne shot?! Not only is it a ton of fun, but you also get to have a little cheers to the start of the wedding day! It adds candid moments to the final pieces of your wedding prep once you have hair and makeup finished. Thank you element of surprise! Who knows when that cork is actually going to pop?
Tip #4: First Look with the Bridesmaids
Once you and the ladies have finished your hair and makeup, and enjoyed a drink, it’s finally time to get into those beautiful dresses! One of my favorite things to do is a first look with the bridesmaids. Generally you will be getting dressed after your bridesmaids have already put on their dresses, so this is the perfect time for them to see you. Grab your top girl to help zip your dress, and have the rest of them waiting outside of the room!
Once your wedding dress and shoes are on, it’s time to sneak into a naturally lit room and let everyone admire how gorgeous you look!
