5 Tips for Preparing for Your Getting Ready Photos

Preparing for your getting ready photos is just as important as preparing for any other part of your wedding day and it will save you a lot of time too. You don’t want to feel rushed in any way on your big day. ​

Below are 5 ways that you can better plan for your getting ready photos:

1.The Flowers. Make sure that your flowers are delivered on time so that your photographer can spend some time taking detailed shots of them. The same goes for the boutonnieres. Weddings can sometimes run a little late though so a good guideline is to have your flowers delivered about 15 – 20 minutes before your photographer is scheduled to arrive. Also ask your florist some loose flowers that didn't make to bouquet that may be use for details styling photos.

2.The Room. Carefully choose the room that you’ll use to get ready in. If possible choose a room with a window so that you can take some beautiful photos with natural light. The bride and bridesmaids will usually use one room to get ready in, which means it can quickly get cluttered and messy. Let everyone know to keep their purses, water bottles and other smaller items in one area so that you have a clear space to use for photos when your photographer arrives.
