Are you looking for a way to involve your bridesmaids in your wedding day? Start by including them in your getting ready photos!
Getting ready for your wedding day is an exciting and emotional experience that you may want to share with your bridesmaids. Having your bridesmaids included in this portion of the day is a great way to capture the beauty and joy of it. Discover the reasons why you should include your bridesmaids in your getting ready photos on your wedding day.
One of the most common ways to include bridesmaids in getting ready photos is during the hair and makeup portion. Your bridesmaids can have their hair and makeup done with you. During this time you will be able to create memories that you will cherish forever.
I love when a bridal party has matching robes, shirts, or outfits. This helps you all feel connected and gives a sweet memento of the day. This can also help you look more put together in photos that mismatching casual clothing.
Photos during the getting ready portion also capture the sweet moments when your bridesmaids help you. With the right photographer, these photos will be some of the most special and meaningful shots of the day. Moms are often a part of these moments as well. But when bridesmaids and family members work together, it makes the efforts seamless.
This is a wonderful time to read special cards to or from your bridal party members and family. These moments of reflection can be some of the most heartwarming moments you’ll share with them over the course of the day.
If you are a spiritual person, having time for a few sacred and still moments on your wedding day can be very important. Whether it’s simply a few minutes to calm and meditate, or to have a personal prayer, this time should be set aside for you. Some couples choose to do a first touch / first prayer together. For this bride, her wedding party and female attendants surrounded her in prayer to bring blessings for her marriage.
Bridesmaids help ease the nerves on your big day. In the hustle of the day, your best friends are there to help you be you and shine! A good joke, a fun memory, or a quick hug can all be game changers on what is sometimes a stressful day.
If the sound of coordinating that many people during hair, makeup, and other getting ready photos sounds a bit too stressful, do a first look! First looks with your bridesmaids are fun and so memorable.
From the moment a bride says yes to her partner’s proposal, her bridesmaids are there to help her every step of the way. On the wedding day, they are both a source of comfort and a source of fun. These photos are sure to add a unique and special touch to your wedding day album.
