Checklist for Bridesmaids and Groomsmen for Stunning Wedding Photos

This list is for you as Brides and Grooms to give you your Bridesmaids and Groomsmen to achieve the best photos you possibly can. It should be given to them about a couple of weeks before the wedding, becasue some of these are things they might want to do in preparation in the days prior to the wedding. Feel free to download and print it out here.

Clean Eating-In the days leading up to the wedding make sure to eat non-greasy foods, foods that won't break you out, or foods you have skin or stomach reactions to.

Water-In the the 4-5 days leading up to the wedding, drink plenty of water. This will help your skin to have a nicer glow and appear better all around. If you drink 2 liters upon waking up every morning this well help to clear your body of toxins.

Skin and Lips-In the 4-5 days prior to the wedding, remember your facial moisturizer and a nice thick lotion for the rest of your body. If your lips are prone to drying, keep them moisturized for the week prior.

Nails-Trim your nails the day prior to the wedding. If you are femaie, have them polished and ready for the next day.

Hair-Men if you are going to have your hair cut, do so about 4 days before the wedding Women, if you are going for a trim-then a week before is fine. If you are going for a whole new look, then 2 to 3 weeks before the wedding would be best. If something happens to go wrong, then you have some growth to offset that.

Make-up-If your make up is not going to be done by a stylist, then try a photofinish foundation. Make sure to conceal all blemishes with concealor first, but don't go too heavy on your make-up. Ask the bride if she has a preferance on make up style. Practice your wedding make-up a few days in advance, so you can be set to put it on well the day of the wedding.. Please see my in depth make up guide here.

Alcohol-Do not drink excessively the night prior to the wedding. Alcohol dehydrates your body-this is visible mostly in the skin and eyes. Don't forget visine if you have a problem with redness around the eyes. Don't drink prior to the wedding-wait until after the formals have been taken.

Punctuality-Be on time! Know where you need to be and when. Many times pictures are done before the ceremony. For the day to run smoothly everyone needs to be present and on time.

Dissappearing-Don't dissappear for any reason after the ceremony or whenever all of the formals are scheduled. Get your pee/smoke breaks out of the way prior to these. When people can't be found it puts the day behind and stresses the bride and groom.

Speak up-If you are doing something weird with your mouth accidentally, or you blinked, or you just feel like you were making a weird face, SPEAK UP! A Wedding Photographer will not just magically know that cousin Bubba blinked when they are concentrating on a party of 15 people.

Thank you for reading!! Hope these things help you to achieive stunning wedding photos! As always, please message me with any questions you may have.
