Your wedding day can feel somewhat hectic; there are a lot of things happening, some of them in a relatively short period of time, and the expectations are always staying high.
More from a 'general day-run’ point-of-view, but also from the wedding photography-related point-of-view, the ideas and pointers in our Top Tips for a Better WeddingDay series, would help you - brides, grooms and other wedding planners - to enjoy a better, smoother, wedding day.
Top Tip #1: Be ready for a ‘Day of Modeling’
Although some people don’t like to be in pictures (in general), it is important to remember that anything that will happen throughout your wedding day (and evening/early night) will all be a part of a once-in-a-lifetime occasion. As such, it is needed for anyone involved, and especially for the BRIDE and GROOM, the WEDDING PARTY and the immediate family - to be a bit more flexible and accepting during that day, for anything that has to do with photos-taking. After all, these photos are likely to be seen by the next generations and the older ones alike, and will symbolize an important step in the wedded couple’s life – showing the story of their happy day. Some would say it’s a cliché , but whether you like it or not, those photos are going to be sweet memories that are created and/or captured, to cherish FOREVER!
Think of it as a day of high-fashion modeling; everybody during that day would be ‘modeling’ something; the bride and groom will be modeling and showing off their love and fun with each other, the family will be modeling their support and happiness about their newly wedded kids/siblings/parents, the wedding party will show their friendship or close relations with the bride and groom, and everybody at all time would be modeling their beautiful or even fancy attires, and fun times.
Everybody have to be aware of the fact, that a LOT of photos will be taken, and that anyone in the photos are expected to act appropriately and show their honest (yet not crazily faked) love and happiness; such awareness would normally need to be raised within the mentioned-above group of people, or refreshed by, the bride and groom themselves, hopefully only PRIOR the day of the event. Therefore – try to make sure that you, your other half, your wedding party and immediate families, are all mentally and smilingly prepared.
