The only recommendation I have is regarding pictures before the ceremony. I have been to weddings where the guests start to arrive and the bride and groom are still taking pictures in the church and guests sit down and kind of watch because they don’t know what else to do. It kind of takes away from the bride walking in later I think.

evabostonterrier-wow! i never thought of that. i really dont want our guests seeing this. but since our pics are over an hour before our wedding i thin we will be ok. i just mentioned this to FI and he agrees. also, he hates the fact of us having pics at 2pm in june. he wants pics around sunset but this cant happen day of b/c i will be looking pretty crappy by then i am sure. he just threw out the idea of doing our pics on another day like a couple days after the wedding.
what do you ladies think of that idea? pros cons?

I really didn’t want to see my FI before the ceremony, so our photographer recommended doing the pictures of the two of us after the cake cutting (around sunset time). Basically we’ll just sneak away for a few minutes to get some pictures and then come back. All the other pictures will be done before the ceremony.

nevermind…this wont work bc of family…ugh
i think we will push back our pics time so our guests wont be seeing us taking pics. we will also be taking pics after the ceremony (not sure if you saw that). so if we run into guests arriving that is our other option. 🙂
Thanks for bringing this to my attention 🙂
