Beautiful Bridesmaids Photo Ideas

The photos of you and your bridesmaids will no doubt be some of your most treasured from your wedding, so why not take advantage of having all your girls around you and create some fun photo opportunities that you’ll love? Capturing those picture perfect moments on the day of your wedding is crucial. Make sure you get the best pictures possible, you need to be prepared by making a photo checklist. Not only will it save you time and energy on the big day, it will help the photographer plan accordingly. You can take Wedding Velvet who captured these beautiful pictures of bridesmaids. To help you get started, we’ve picked out our top must-have wedding day picture ideas!

The bride

This one’s a classic, but a surprising number of brides forget it! Whether it’s a natural shot of you all prepping for the big day or a posed group photo of you all together (these work particularly well if you’re wearing matching outfits), make sure you capture the atmosphere of excitement and anticipation before the ceremony.

The pout

Take a picture of all the bridesmaids with the bride, preferably when they are getting all glammed up.  You can also use fun props to make the picture that much unique and silly. This one is easy peasy – apply lipstick and POUT! We especially like images like this if the bridesmaids are wearing a bright pop of color on their lips, but it’s a funny, girly photo to have in your album whatever your maids are wearing.

A group shot

This cheeky photo brings a whole new meaning to the term ‘group shot’! Although it may be more traditional to have a photo of the groom and his ushers enjoying a tipple in the bar pre-ceremony, we love to see brides and their girls partaking in a little Dutch courage!

Fun time

We love this photo! If you’re lucky enough to be marrying overseas, make sure you take advantage of it and get a photo of your bridesmaids enjoying their beautiful surroundings. This works really well at sunset, as the lighting will be extra flattering.

Helping bride

While one of the brides’ sisters is helping the bride to get ready make sure your photographer clicks a photo of that too. This shot is a double whammy we love that the bridesmaids are twirling in their pretty dresses, and large round balloons like this one are very popular for a quirky wedding photo opportunity. Action shots may be a good option for bridesmaids who don’t feel comfortable posting, too.

It’s selfie time

These day girls are very much into a selfie. While bridesmaids clicking selfie you can get a picture that will look amazing. With photo booths becoming more and more popular at weddings, brides these days know the importance of a funny prop! Mustaches, glasses, hats, and wigs make for hilarious photo opportunities with all your guests, but make sure you get at least one with just you and the girls!

At the party 

It’s hard to say no to a bachelorette party weekend. Who wants to miss the fun, the stories, or the memories? But if you know your budget is tight, ask a few questions before you RSVP with an enthusiastic “YES!” Get in touch with the ‘maid in charge of planning to see if she has an idea of what the weekend will cost. Ask your photographer to click a picture while your bridesmaid is having fun. The designer will help you out to get pictures clicked. You can take Megha & Jigar for your wedding dresses.

The dress

The biggest job is to select a dress for your bridesmaid. The colors in the lehengas she wants for different activities are different too. With the boom in the fashion industry, the market has been loaded with numerous options for wedding dresses, accessories, jewelry and other items that are required to give that ultra charming look for a bridesmaid. While selecting the lehenga you can get a shot of you and your sister. The makeup of your bridesmaids can be done by Priyanka Baweja.

Getting pictures clicked with your bridesmaid is a fun, bonding activity that you and your closest girlfriends will get to experience together. Make sure they don’t become fashion victims with horrendous styles and colors that don’t flatter them. Be open and honest with these women about your ideas and goals, and ask them their opinions. Keeping a clear line of communication with them throughout the process will result in everyone’s happiness.
