Let Your Wedding Party Know How Important Photos Are to You
If you're planning on having a wedding party surround you on your big day, this is for you.
These people are your closest friends. The people you can turn to for anything. The people you love most. The people you want standing right by your side during the most important moment in your life. As a result, these are also the people who will be in a good number of your wedding photos.
Even if you expect them to (mostly) behave, it may be a good idea to remind them just how important photos of the day mean to you.
Speaking from experience, when a wedding party is just sooo over photos it can be difficult to get them back on track. Things can get uncomfortable during photos - maybe it's 100 degrees outside or 10 below or their outfits are less than comfortable or whatever. If photos are important to you, kindly remind them that this is your wedding day and you want to remember everyone at their absolute best.
I would recommend two ways of going about this:
1) Send them a special note and / or gift that mentions the importance of photos. Make it fun, memorable and you! They'll love it!
2) Have someone make an announcement at the rehearsal dinner - could be you, your maid of honor or the person who is performing the ceremony. This is a great time because everyone is already in wedding mode.
Let me know if you like this idea and if you decide to try it out!
