Allusion Photography - APPROVED

Choosing the wedding party is one of the most important Big Day-related tasks. While most brides-to-be have many friends, making the choice for the bridal party can honestly be a daunting ordeal.

How to choose your bridesmaids? How to make sure nobody’s feelings get hurt? Even more, how to make sure the ladies standing by your side at the altar are happy? We have gathered some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Whatever you do, remember that this is your Not your mom’s, not his aunt’s and definitely not your sister’s. It is your wedding and you choose who your bridesmaids are. Don’t let anyone tell you what to do when it comes to this.
  • You might actually want to include in-laws. Yes, you read that right. You may not be very close to them right now, but you will be. Soon enough, they will be part of your family and you will be part of theirs. And while friends may move to other states and relationships may cool, family will always be there – including in-laws. Start on the right foot by including your future sister(s)-in-law in the wedding party.
  • Also, you might not be able to include everyone you want. We mean this. You may have lots of friends who might not make it to the wedding party, but that doesn’t mean you cannot assign them important tasks for the Big Day. Some of them may play a song or have a reading during your wedding ceremony or reception. Others may have a beautiful toast to dedicate to you and your spouse. Whatever you choose for them, it will surely make them feel really special in your life!

Being prepared by knowing what no one tells you about taking wedding photos will assist you on your big day!

 

Allusion Photography

Your wedding day is such a special event in your life that capturing its candid and beautiful moments is a “must” regardless of what type of wedding you want to have.

 

Therefore, it is highly important that you properly prepare yourself for the wedding photo shoot. How to do it, though? Here some of the things that nobody tells you about taking wedding photos.

 

Read on and find out more.

 

  • It is important to talk to your photographer about the types of photos you want as there are many different types that can be taken. Your photographer however will be able to offer guidance and input on the great photography styles and poses which will make for your gorgeous photos!

 

  • You will smile so much that it will start aching. Be sure to take a break in between photos and relax your face muscles. You want this to be a happy moment and not something you associate with pain.

 

  • Your photos will not be ready immediately after the wedding. It might take some time for your photographer to carefully select, edit and enhance every photo from your event. Also, making your photo album may take a bit longer as well. Keep in mind that this time taken will only enhance the beauty of your final products.

 

  • Budgeting for a photographer can be quite hard. Choosing a photographer will be much about the “feeling” you get from his/her work, the products they offer as well as the experience they can provide. Be prepared to allow a small cushion in case you fall in love with someone who’s a little more expensive than what you originally had in mind.

Day-after photo shoots: Likewise, if you don’t want to rush through your wedding photos, you can also ask your photographer to schedule a day-after photo shooting. This will give you and your spouse plenty of time to get ready and do as many double-shots as you want to, so that everything is absolutely flawless in your wedding pictures. Make sure to ask your photographer if there is an extra cost for this option.
Father-daughter first look: Have your father see you when you are ready to walk down the aisle and ask your photographer to capture the moment. This is bound to be an amazingly emotional photo shoot, so it will surely look amazing!
Social Media: Because Facebook, Instagram and the other Social Media networks have become a routine part of our daily lives, many brides choose to incorporate them in their wedding too. Create a special hashtag for your wedding and your guests will definitely enjoy the idea.

If you are on the fence about having engagement photos taken, don’t be, they are a must!

Allusion Photography

Undoubtedly, getting engaged is a huge moment in your life. If you have yet to decide whether or not you should take engagement photos, you should definitely know they are a must. Why is it so important to have a special engagement shoot? Here are some of the reasons you might consider:

  • Having an engagement photo shoot will help you know your photographer or company. This way, you will not be nervous about the wedding photos, because you will know exactly how your photographer works and what you can expect from him/her.

 

  • Having a professional engagement shoot can also help you settle on the best makeup and hair style too. Scheduling these before the actual wedding will allow you to see exactly how they look on you (so that you have plenty of time to decide if you would like to keep everything this way or change something about you look). Plus, it would be nice to wear professional makeup and have your hair professionally done for the engagement photos, right?

 

  • Your engagement photos can be really fun and creative, so you will definitely not want to miss out on this pre-wedding experience. What’s more, you can use the engagement photos for your Save the Date cards and/or wedding invitations too. Sure, this depends on what type of wedding stationery you want, but it is still an option to consider.
