"Rain or Swine! 2-0-0-9"
We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!
We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

Also, a very good point about holding the bouquet low when you're walking down the aisle. I never thought about that at all, and just happened to look at myself in the mirror with the bouquet just as I was leaving the room and noticed that the way I was holding them, the way they felt most natural to me, was way too high. The top of the bouquet was almost at my chin and covering the top part of my dress, which was my favourite part. So yea, very glad I was able to catch that before I walked down. It felt kind of unnatural to hold the bouquet low, but it looked better. Definately experiment with this with your bouquet beforehand!

- don't go overboard of the permutations/combinations of people on the required photo list. We were only 10 people (us, parents, sisters and one boyfriend) and I gave my photographer a list of probably 20 different combinations of those people. Looking back, some of the combinations were kinda dumb and definitely not that important (i.e. just the four parents, the two of us with his parents, the two of us with my parents, the two of us with all 4 parents, multiple groupings including my SIL's boyfriend and then the same groupings without him). Because my list was so long, my photographer missed one of the essential groupings - my family with my husband! So I have a picture of just my family (without my husband) and a picture of us and my parents (without my sister). I am pretty sad about not having my family and husband in one photo, and my mom was really really disappointed because she only wanted to frame 2 pictures, one of just the 2 of us, and one of the 5 of us (which we didn't get).
-Since people were talking about how to hold the bouquet, my photographer was good at this, for close up pictures (like from the stomach up) she made us hold the flowers just under our chest. It looks awesome because the photos are right at the bottom line of the pic, but not covering any important stuff. At my AHR I remembered this and tried to copy it, but I held the photos higher, like chest level, which covered the nicest part of the dress (the chest). I wish I was holding them just a bit lower.
Here's some pics to show what I mean
wish we were holding the bouquet a little lower
- Also, if you are taking pics with just one other person, it's nice if you both hold your bouquet (gives the other person some place to put their hand).
-Oh yeah, and my photographer's number one thing, always put one foot in front of the other, makes everyone look so much nicer, more relaxed (and gives you a bit of hip/attitude like in the pic of me alone. I would have looked so awkward if I had my two feet together!)

We had a lot of pics of DH's family, because they are very animated, I presume, but very few of my family ... and I never got one of just me and my Mom, which I regret.
Regardless, we have sensational pictures ... just wish I had taken the time to give our photogs a list ahead of time, as recommended.
