Hey Everyone! I was just wondering how long before your wedding you are supposed to get your portraits taken. My sister waited way too long because she wanted to keep loosing weight, and it was cutting it really close to have it finished and framed before the wedding. I know that I have plenty of time, I'm just curious. Any ideas? TIA wink.gif

we dont do these up north. in fact i never heard of it until BDW!

 

engagement pics of the couple together are much more common up here, and usually an 8x10 or larger is displayed near/on the guest book table (at regular, non-DW weddings, anyways).

It's a professional picture of the bride that your photog takes months in advance of you in your dress, veil, hair, makeup, bouquet.... just like you would look on your wedding day. It's usually put on a canvas, framed, and displayed at the reception by the guest book and stuff. Maybe it's just a southern thing. Sometimes they are taken in a studio, or on location... depending on what the bride wants. Crazy... I've never heard of anyone not doing this.

Ooh, I've never heard of this. I can't imagine having to get all ready TWICE! lol Altho, it would be awesome to be able to get some of the photos out of the way beforehand. Hopefully someone else on here can help you with the timeline.

I've never heard of a bridal portrait either! We're doing engagement pics at the end of October. Normally I wouldnt bother with them, but we're not bring a pro photog with us to Jamaica and I want pro pics of us sometime, somehow!

You should have it done at least 3 months prior to your wedding. That way, you'll have plenty of time to choose the images you want to purchase (including the one you will want to have matted and framed and put up at your reception site), and your photographer will have time to get everything printed and delivered to you without having to worry about getting it all done at the last minute.

 

Hope this helps.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
