5 Tips For a Picture Perfect Getting Ready Session With Your Besties

Dawn Strong

Take it from us - some of the fondest memories you'll have of your Big Day are those hours spent pre-wedding, getting ready with your besties. So today we're running down a list of five tips to make sure you and your crew are camera ready. Because, let's be honest... remembering all of those fun-filled moments and having them captured in gorgeous images are two very different things. PAMPER YOUR PARTY Guys, we love that t-shirt + lounge pant combo just as much as the next person, but when it comes to your wedding day, you and your ladies most definitely need to toss aside that comfy getup and rock something a little extra special. We suggest gifting your bridal party with a beautiful bridal robe (check out the White Collection by Le Rose - we love it) and calling in the professionals for a little hair and makeup pampering. You'll never look so good. CREATE A GOOD PLAYLIST Whether you love a good boy band or want to calm those nerves with the soothing sounds of Adele, putting on the perfect tunes will definitely make a difference when it comes to the images your photog captures. Because a happy + relaxed bridal party means happy + relaxed photos, so don't be afraid to host your own little dance party. BUST OUT THE BUBBLY... AND SNACKS! There's no better way to tell your besties just how much you love them (AND appreciate all of the help with cake tasting and dress fittings) than with a champagne toast. Plus, it makes for a great photo op. But don't just stop at the bubbly. A hangry bridal party doesn't make for amazing images, so make sure to put out snacks that will keep everyone happy. You'll need it. REMEMBER - PRESENTATION MATTERS From choosing the right getting ready venue (hotel room, apartment, etc.) to making sure all of your accessories are camera ready, presentation really does matter. Which means opting for matching hangers (those aforementioned robes need a place to shine), monogrammed jewelry cases, vases full of flowers and even matching shoeboxes. Trust us, you'll be happy your photog was able to capture all of the little details you put so much thought into throughout your planning process. TAKE SOME TIME TO RELAX When it comes down to it, the morning of your Big Day is really about you and the ones you love - your best friends. So take some much-needed time to really relax and just enjoy the girls who have been there with you through thick and thin. You'll be so happy you took a break before all of the hustle and bustle of your celebration... and will forever cherish those snaps of you and your besties laughing and smiling in anticipation.
