TIP 29 - WEDDING DRESS

TIP 29 - WEDDING DRESS

Far be it from me to advise you on which dress to buy, I’m certainly not an expert in that area, however I do have vast experience of photographing brides in them, and have some indispensable tips for you.

1 – Ask yourself if you will be happy walking around outdoors in your dress. Would you walk on grass? Wet ground? Is it easy to bundle up and carry? Will it require another person to assist in this? I always think that you should buy a dress which you are comfortable in and can walk around in, which gives you more freedom to socialise and head off for outdoor photos. I’ve seen more than a few brides unhappy with aspects of their dress on the day, which could have been avoided with this info :-(

2 – Can you sit down in it? It’s always a big trial when sitting down for signing the register and again sitting down for food. How big is it? Will you actually fit into a small doorway or tight seating arrangement?

3 – Always get shown how to spread your dress out for walking up the aisle and delegate a chief bridesmaid to make sure it is looking perfect at this critical time, and then once again when you arrive at the top of the aisle. It takes a knack to spread a dress out beautifully, I can only describe it as like spreading a duvet out! You need to grab two points and shake it all out and the natural circle of fabric will sit flawlessly. I’m always on hand to help, but it’s far better if a bridesmaid gets involved, because I can photograph that too.
