My best friend since childhood is an amazing, in-demand wedding photographer. I asked her to be my bridesmaid (sister is MOH) and she informed me that she was going to do my wedding photography and that it was her wedding gift to me. I want her IN the wedding, so we compromised. Her husband, also a photographer, will be her second shooter. She will walk down the aisle and as soon as I begin to walk, her husband will hand her her camera. I don’t want her to be overly encumbered, so I was thinking of getting her a wrist corsage instead. Am I over thinking this? Should I just let her hand her bouquet off to someone, or is a corsage a good idea? Thoughts? I may end up doing this for all my brides maids.

I’d be worried she may end up crushing her wrist corsage- good photographers end up in some strange & awkward positions to get that perfect shot!

I would let her hand the bouquet off to someone. My first thought is that she might look a little ‘off’ standing next to your other bridesmaids/MOH who have bouquets. Though it may be a nice gesture to get her both. 🙂
EDIT: If all of your BMs have a corsage, I don’t see why not.

I would ask her what would be best.

Think crosage is the least of your worries. You’re gonna have a MIA bridesmaid in your pics. Think you should get a reccomendation for another photog. It’s all generous of her, but she’s your childhood frend. She should be enjoying herself and helping you as a BM rathar than working.

Atalanta: Her husband is going to be her “second shooter” and will be doing all of our bridesmaid pics. I told her that I would hire someone, but it’s something she really wants to do and part of what I want for my wedding is to have everyone I love enjoying themselves, and doing wedding photography is something that she loves. I have 2 other bridesmaids, my mother, a cousin doing my makeup, and a friend doing my hair, so I will have PLENTY of help. This is something special that she wants to do for me. I am inclined to let her. <br /><br />Thank you everyone for your advice. I am just going to go for the bouquet and let her hand it off when it is time to take pics!
