Bridal Details vary at every single wedding. They are a way to pull in meaning, personality, and style. But what should you have on hand?
I’ll go through possible ideas and then at the bottom you can find an easy list of common bridal details you might consider for your wedding day!
TIP! Have these all gathered in a bag or box a day or two before your wedding to make it easy to find them and for your photographer to photograph them!
I LOVE when a bride will set aside TWO copies of the wedding invitations with all inserts, photos, and envelopes. Two copies means I can get front and back all in one photo with layers and colors.
All three rings. His and Hers! They can be given to the best man later, don’t worry!
The dress! Of course! If you want to level up the dress shots, a simple wooden hanger really dresses up the shot over the plastic one it possibly came on!
If you and your Bridesmaids are all getting ready at the same location, it’s always fun to grab a quick shot of all the dresses together!
The Veil, if you are wearing one. I will often include this in shots of the dress or the shoes.
Your bridal jewelry. Sometimes I’ll snap photos of the jewelry by itself and other times I’ll mix it in with other details. Think earrings, necklaces, bracelets, toe rings, decorative hair pieces, etc.
Shoes! Oh I love all the different options of shoes!
Florals! The bridal bouquet is the big one here but if possible I love getting the bridesmaid bouquets and the boutonnieres as well. AND! If your florist is willing to give you a few loose stems that I can use in the details shots, it’s a super fun extra touch!
Other possible details to consider having is your wedding perfume, the garter, your old/new/borrowed/blue items, a handkerchief, personalized pieces, gifts, vows, etc.
And to make it easy, you can just screen shot or save the list below straight to your phone!
