Pics w/ groom before ceremony? Taboo?

Recommended Posts

I want to take some romantic photos with my future husband on the beach in our wedding day attire… but, I donâ€t want all the wedding guests to have to sit and wait on us, and I will be ready to party after the ceremony! Is it totally wrong to meet with my groom, just us, out on the beach before the wedding ceremony?

I have been thinking about this as well and am torn between the two ideas! I think I will wait to take pictures after the ceremony because I want to see his reaction when I walk down in my dress!smile72.gif

Their is a thread about this already. But to sum it up, many brides did photos before their wedding. I was one of them and it worked out great for us.

getting pictures before hand together is usually a good idea because after the ceremony everyone will be wanting to congratulate you and its tough to get away from it all and have some privacy together for photos. plus you will have to rush back to the reception....

 

i always try and advise that you have a little "first look" series of photos where you might be hidden somewhere and you walk out and he sees you. or he is blind folded or something like that. it ends up being a much better shot then when you walk down the aisle because you can capture the two of you right there and not you all the way down the aisle and him up front. plus its more intimate and personal and you can have a little time together to just enjoy the moment.

 

then i like to take a few pictures of just the two of you and maybe the wedding party photos. then after the ceremony you can get the family photos done and some more pohtos of just the two of you maybe later on with the sun setting or wherever. dont try and get it all done right at the end. it always ends up getting rushed and photos sacrificed..

 

BUTTTTT if you are really traditional and want just have him see you when you walk down the aisle just make sure that you stand firm and give yourself plenty of time and get them taken care of.

 

just realize that the tradition of only seeing you down the aisle for the first time and the veil comes from pre-arranged marriages where they didnt want the groom running off if he saw the bride. and im willing to bet that isnt the case with you two...

 

just dont see each other before reveal photo and it really makes for some great photos

 

hope that helps :)

I had read a knot bio where they did pictures together before the ceremony and the pictures of them seeing each other for the first time was a beautiful and emotional moment and captured on film.

I think I still have that link bookmarked at home.

 

My sister had some taken before the ceremony, but she and the groom were in the same pictures, but could not see each other!

They were very well done... for example, she was upstairs looking out a window - window open, and he was downstairs.

 

We did group and family pictures afterwards and then once we were on our honeymoon we had a pro photographer take our romantic pictures.

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now. 
    • I think that would be a great idea. I have tried it once and loved it.!
    • That's really sweet. I am sure she would love that.!!
