A Beautiful Wedding Present

How To Make Sure You're Ready For Your Bridal Photos

If you are newly engaged, then you have a lot of planning to do. One of the things that you have to plan for is your bridal photos. Traditionally, bridal photos are done before the groom ever sees the bride and are then displayed at the wedding reception. However, the latest trend in bridal photos is to photograph both the bride and the groom together so that they have some pictures to frame and hang in their house. If you have your wedding dress but do not have anything else ready for your bridal photos, then this article is for you. Read on to learn more about a few things that you need to do before you get ready for your bridal photos. 

Bridal Jewelry Set

Your wedding gown is not going to look complete unless you have jewelry to go with it. Whether you are more of a diamonds or pearl person, invest in some bridal set jewelry that includes matching earrings, a necklace, and even a bracelet. Even though bridal set jewelry usually comes with a hefty price tag, it's something that you can wear on every special occasion moving forward. Plus, who doesn't love an excuse to buy some fancy jewelry? 


Sure, you may know how to do your everyday makeup, but you should make sure to have your makeup professionally done before your photos. Before the actual day of your bridal photos, however, you should do a test-run with your makeup artist to really nail down the makeup look that you want. Make sure to really communicate with your makeup artist about what things you are looking for. For instance, do you want more bronzer, eyeliner, and lipstick or are you going for a more natural look? 


Yes, you need to have a beautiful bouquet for your wedding day, but you may want to consider having a bouquet for your bridal photos as well. Wedding flowers are every bride's best accessory (other than their groom), and so they are extra fun to show off in your bridal photos.

Getting ready for your bridal photos does not have to be stressful. Work with your photographer ahead of time to pick a location that will give you the best pictures possible and will give you pictures that you will want to look back on for forever. Use the tips in this article to really complete your entire look.
