What’s a bridal portrait? Is this like pictures of you and your hubby dressed up before the wedding? Or after?

Your hair looks really pretty.

TO @FortiesFlare:  Bridal Portrait… is a formal pic of the Bride (solo) taken before the Wedding (usually in-studio) and once upon a time, published in the local Newspaper to announce the upcoming Wedding.

A common Victorian practice, that now only exists in certain cultures / parts of the country (common in the US South) or in some circles of society (Society Pages)

Hope this helps,

TO @Britt214: to be honest it isn’t totally a southern / Texas thing… as I said it is a hold-over from the Victorian era…

I had Bridal Portraits done before my first marriage (circa 1980) as it was quite common then here in Canada… less so now.  But certainly not unheard of either…

(A lot of Canada still has a strong Victorian / British Commonwealth influence).

PS… LOVED your hair !!

@Britt214:  Pretty hair! Looks like it held up really well with the humidity too. 

I had never heard of them until I went to law school in the south. I figured they were a regional thing since I’d never heard of them growing up in NY.
