3 Things That Can Ruin Your Wedding Photos

The pho­tos are one of the most impor­tant aspects of your wed­ding. The pho­tos help immor­tal­ize the day. You may be run­ning around with only two sec­onds to catch your breath, but at least you’ll have pho­tos to look back on. So every­thing has to be per­fect. Not a hair out of place. To help you get the wed­ding and the pho­tos of your dreams, we put togeth­er a list of the three biggest things that can ruin your wed­ding pho­tos.

1. Wrong Colors

Col­ors mat­ter when it comes to your wed­ding pho­tos. When choos­ing the col­ors for any­thing from brides­maids dress­es to bou­quets, keep in mind that the eye is drawn to col­or. If you’re opt­ing for a bright­ly col­ored bou­quet, that’s the first thing any­one is going to notice. When, real­ly, you want the beau­ti­ful lady in the big white dress to stand out. Of course, if you can’t live with­out your red or oth­er bright col­ors, there are still ways to include them, with­out them play­ing star­ring roles. Just make sure to fol­low any advice from your florist and design team.

2. Cell Phones

You may have heard of an unplugged cer­e­mo­ny before and thought to your­self that there’s no need to explic­it­ly tell your guests not to take out their phones to take pic­tures dur­ing your cer­e­mo­ny. Well, you would be wrong and severe­ly dis­ap­point­ed when you get your pic­tures back and your pho­tog­ra­ph­er could only get a shot of the bride walk­ing down the aisle sur­round­ed by dozens of cell phones. It will look more like the red car­pet than an inti­mate cer­e­mo­ny. A no pho­tos pol­i­cy is def­i­nite­ly some­thing your offi­ciant should men­tion before the start of the cer­e­mo­ny to ensure you have the best pho­tos pos­si­ble. Plus, your guests will have a bet­ter expe­ri­ence when they’re focused on you and not watch­ing through the lens of their smart­phone cam­era.

3. Ill-Fitting Clothing

Whether it’s the bride, the groom, or the grooms­men, wed­ding attire that doesn’t fit quite right can be detri­men­tal. For the bride, your last fit­ting is usu­al­ly about a month before your wed­ding. If you’re on a wed­ding work­out reg­i­men or a strict diet, this should be hap­pen­ing lead­ing up to your wed­ding, but don’t try to lose (or gain) 20 pounds in the last month. Not only is that unhealthy, but it could also mean an ill-fit­ting dress and no time for alter­ations. For the men, it’s as sim­ple as mak­ing sure you get your suits or tux­es sized accu­rate­ly and in your hands enough time in advance to fix any prob­lems that come up. Bag­gy jack­ets and short pant legs do not make for great wed­ding pho­tos.

Tak­ing a few extra steps to ensure any of these detri­men­tal things don’t hap­pen at your wed­ding is well worth it in the end. Espe­cial­ly when you get those pris­tine pho­tos back. You’ll be able to look upon them fond­ly and remem­ber your spe­cial day. There will be no eye-rolling at Aunt Sally’s giant iPad or the best man’s sleeves hit­ting his knuck­le.
