WEDDING DETAILS CHECKLIST
The last thing you want to do when your photographer arrives on your wedding day is scurry around gathering your jewelry and shoes and everything for photos. You want to relax and enjoying getting ready! So I've put together a general list of item to have ready for your wedding photographer for getting ready and detail photos.
My advice is to gather these items the night before and put them in a box or a bag so they're ready to go when your photographer arrives :)
Obviously??? It's traditional for the best man to hold onto the rings before and during the ceremony, but keep them all in one place with the bride so the photographer can take photos of all of them together! Don't worry, the rings will make there way to the best man before the ceremony starts.
You're probably wearing a long wedding dress so we don't get to see your shoes throughout the day - you'll definitely want photos of them!
Necklace, bracelets, earring - whatever you plan on wearing, we want to photograph it!
Ring Box or Ring Dish
If you have a fun or personalized ring box or ring dish, bring it! It adds such a fun element to the photos.
Ask your florist to leave a few extra florals for details photos. This is obviously something you can't put together the night before, but it'll be nice to have once the florist arrives :)
If you have cute little personalized vow books, let's get some photos of them!
Wedding invitations, save the dates, envelopes, stamps - all of it! Pro tip: if you don't have it in your wedding budget to get fancy invites and save the dates for all of your guests, that's okay - you can order one set for yourself for photos!
You didn't buy an expensive dress just to get photos of it on a plastic hanger! Bring a couple nice wooden hangers for your beautiful dress and/or suit jacket.
Shoes + Watch
The guys' details matter too!
Cologne, flask, all the man things
If you're using it to get ready, I want to document it!
Tie, sunglasses, cuff links, etc.
You get the point ;)
