Although during the bridal prep we are focused on you as the bride, it is also a moment where you’re enjoying time with your bridesmaids and your family.
It is helpful to have all bridesmaids and family who are present during the bridal preparation session that they come appropriately dressed (with hair/makeup done). This is to ensure they are looking their best if they end up being in any of the photos! We LOVE matching bridesmaid robes and it makes for cute bridesmaid portraits during this very exciting time!
Although it is nice to have bridesmaids and family to have their with hair and makeup done, they do not need to be in their bridesmaids gowns before we arrive. We love to capture these pretty bridesmaid gowns hanging as they make a cute keepsake in your wedding photos. We suggest matching wooden hangers because they help to keep the photo clean and pretty.
A tip is to check out Ikea for a set of some cheap wooden hangers which would complement the bridal dress. We’ve talked about getting a fabric, wooden or personalized hanger in a previous post in helping get the best photos of your wedding gown. So don’t forget a pretty hanger for your wedding dress!
But the best tip is to just treasure the moment and enjoy yourselves! You’ve reached this important time in your lives together and as long as you focus on having fun together then you will get the best photos regardless!
