Top 7 Photos You Need With Your Bridesmaids

November 14, 2021

There are plenty of photos you have probably considered taking on your wedding day. Images range from getting ready, the ceremony, pictures with your family, and of course with the groom. What about the ladies that are helping you and have helped throughout the entire wedding planning process? While you know you’ll have some time to take group shots of the whole bridal party; you’ll want to make sure you have these photos with your bridesmaids as you get ready on your big day. Here are the Top 7 Photos You Need With Your Bridesmaids.

1. Showcase The Back of the Dress

The back of a wedding dress has beautiful details you’ll want to capture. You can pose with all of the bridesmaids to show off their dresses as well or have some great close-ups of the bridesmaids helping button, zipper, or lace up the back of your dress.

2. First Look Photos With The Bridesmaids

I’m sure everyone, including you, has heard about the first look for the bride and groom. What about when the bridal party sees the bride for the first time? The bride first revealing her dress to her bridal party can result in some emotional and memorable photo opportunities.

3. Having Fun

As you are getting ready, everyone’s nerves are a little on edge because everyone wants to look their best. There will be moments when you need to let loose to relax a little, and having a little dance party, jumping on the bed or just being silly are moments that can make for great photo opportunities.

4. Matching Robes or Shirts

Most brides will have getting-ready attire for their bridesmaids, and you’ll want to capture everyone in their cute and thoughtful pre-wedding wear.

5. Bouquets and Bridesmaids Dresses

Bouquets won’t last a lifetime, but the pictures you have of them will. The bridesmaids and bride bouquet shot is one that you will want to have. There are many ways you can showcase the bouquets as well as the bridesmaid’s dresses. From lining everyone up and holding their bouquets out to the camera or hiding their faces to forming a circle around the bride, this is another shot that offers creative freedom.

6. The Shoe Shot

You can’t forget about the shoes and what about those pedicures? You’ll want to get a group shot that showcases everyone’s shoes.

7. Celebrating Shot

You’re getting married! There is bound to be a bottle or two of champagne opened in the bride’s honor. Take a minute to pause as you toast away your single life with your bridesmaids for a picture-perfect shot.
