Who can envision their big wedding day without photos? Especially without photos of the bridal party!
When thinking ahead to the special day, brides should be considering what kinds of photos they want. Whether they want serious poses, fun and silly photos, or beautiful and timeless pictures, there are plenty of ways to do bridesmaid photos and to do them right!
So for the brides who have been searching high and low for bridesmaid photos that are fun, creative, and unique, look no more! There are plenty of cool bridesmaid photo ideas out there, and we want to help you narrow down your search a little bit! These ideas are worthy of stealing, or even if they just get your creative juices flowing, they should provide you with a little more clarity!
1. Use mirrors!
When prepping with your favorite girls in the morning, this new fun and creative way of incorporating a mirror into the scheme of things! Whether the bride is holding it before she is dressed and ready to go, or is standing in awe of her beauty and her dress with paired eyes around her, a mirror is a unique route to take.
2. Steal the Groom!
This puts a fun twist on things, especially if your bridesmaids are super close friends with the groom! But even if they are not, pretending that they are stealing the groom away from the bride, or at least making him the star of the show, will give a laugh to anyone looking through your wedding photos!
3. Incorporate the Photo Booth Props!
Want to add a little humor into your photos? Using the props from your photo booth, or maybe grabbing something silly that you brought along, is a fun way to act silly with your girlfriends. Even if you do not have a photo booth, make sure you take a break from the smiling and serious bridesmaid photos and add in some crazy faces and funny poses along the way!
4. Flower Children
Are you a bohemian bride looking to incorporate your flowers? Standing in a row and showing them off is only one way to do it! Although the flower corsage idea is super cute and stunning as well, you can also take several photos of the bridesmaids holding their bouquets instead. Whatever the case may be, be sure to show off those flower crowns and breathless bouquets.
5. No More Jumping on the Bed!
If you want to be a kid again, what better way to do that then jumping on the bed? This is a silly way to add your childhood into a photo, and is especially useful if you are at a hotel or in your childhood home! Although a fun idea, this can obviously only be done if there is a bed around the prepping place.
6. A Little Party Never Killed Nobody
Obviously, we are not advocating that you go with your bridal party in the morning and get completely wasted at a bar. But posing at one is a humorous way to remember that morning! Or having the bridal party go a little crazy in front of the flower girl is another funny twist that you can add to your bridesmaid photos!
“L, is for the way you look at me. O, is for the only one I see. V, is very very extraordinary. E, is even more than anyone that you adore can. Love is all that I can give to you.”
8. The Priceless Maid of Honor
Whether you want to do something unique and plop on down in a bathtub, or want some very emotional shots of you hugging your best friend, sibling, or relative, the maid of honor photos can be very heart wrenching, fun, and emotional. Many of these shots only the photographer can catch candidly, they cannot be posed. But believe me, if you ask the photographer to photograph you hugging your maid of honor, either the smiles will form or the tears will flow!
9. When the Prayers Go Up, the Blessings Come Down.
If you want to incorporate your religious views somehow into your day, what better way to do so then to ask your bridesmaids to pray for you? Prayer is an emotional, spiritual, and strong aspect of faith. If you ask those who are near and very dear to your heart to pray for you, not only will you feel blessed in the process, but the photos afterward will be a timeless reminder of the faith you and your friends share.
