Did you do a group photo? Do you plan to?

Recommended Posts

I would very much love to have a group photo done right after the ceremony but I have been told by a few DBs that it's hopeless trying to get everyone assembled etc. How many of you did it at your wedding? Can you post the pic?

For those not yet married, do you plan to have a group photo done?

 

(sorry if this has already been covered and I missed it, I searched!)

We did!! And then we had it blown up really large and it's hanging in our entry hall. It's great when people come over and see themselves.

 

We when we reached the end of the aisle on our way up, we turned around and asked everyone to stand and join us for a photo.

I've seen a few group photo pics on here and on other sites. I think if you had a small group it could be easily done ...I see though you have 65 guests booked so far so it might take a bit of work to co-ordinate but I say if you really want to have one done, advise your photographer and guests of when the photo will take place and go for it!

We are going to have a pretty big wedding (130 people) and we are planning to do a group photo! It might not work, but it's worth a shot!

 

We went to a destination wedding last year with about 80 people and they did a group photo...the photog got up on a small step ladder and took the pic that way. It was so nice because they sent the pic out with their thank you cards. I really liked the idea and I plan to copy it. So hopefully our picture will work out and we can do the same!

I'm definitely going to try to have a group shot done. I dont' know how big our wedding will end up being, but we're inviting 80 people total. Even if all guests show up we're going to try for an awesome group shot.

I think it's a great idea and it's the only real portrait photo I want to have! I think if you make sure the photog knows and let everyone else know - maybe the officiant can mention it before the end of the service.

I was at a destination wedding in January with about 35 guests, and it really didn't take very long to take the group photo. After the cocktail party was wrapping up, they just asked everyone to stand together for a photo before leaving. They then did one with the groom and his guy friends, and the bride and her girl friends.

We did ours right after the ceremony. It was the first formal picture we took. We had no problem getting 32 people together. I say definitely do it!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
