Perfect Bridal Checklist

Planning a wedding? This Perfect Bridal Checklist is for you!

he perfect bridal checklist all the details! Happy Tuesday gorgeous person reading this! Today I am going to cover Bridal details and why you should allow time for them to be photographed. When it comes to creating the timeline for your wedding day and thinking about your must-have shots and the things you want to be photographed a lot of brides tend to forget the detail shots during the getting ready portion of the day. For both themselves and the groom.

Now, most people haven’t gone through this process before and they only think about the basic pictures like the dress, shoes, bouquet, and rings. These are the obvious ones but there are many more MUST HAVE shots for your details! These detail shots take time to style and photograph. Ladies leave at least an hour for your photographer to get these shots plus candid’s of you getting your hair and makeup touched up. Bridal details are so pretty to style! This is one of my favorite things on the wedding day to photograph. Styling your details allows you to see all of the little things that matter in one seamless photo. It is a great way to look back at all of the time and thought that went into making this day special for you both. It helps set the tone for the wedding day vibes and when you get your final images back I think it’s the best way to start your wedding album or gallery. The aesthetics of the bride and groom details are always fun to share later and it’s a great way to preserve those memories. It’s also a great way to elevate your getting ready images. Things like personal hangers, ring boxes and keepsakes ads an authentic, and elegant touch to your wedding.

If you are incorporating something that was passed down or has significant value to you and your family, it’s a great way to capture that memory and then share. Maybe it’s a pin or broaches passed down from Grandmother to mother and now to you. Or a tie clip that has been in the family for years. Get those details photographed! They are pieces to your wedding day puzzle that helps tie everything together. It’s also a fun way to share that memory with those who would find meaning to those details. It can be a great gift and a great way to say thank you to your loved ones!

Also, think about all of the time and energy you put into picking out your wedding attire, colors, stationery and so much more. Don’t let all of that hard work be forgotten! Set time aside to have it photographed so when you look back on your wedding day you can see all of that hard work come back to life
