    I am totally in favor of doing pictures BEFORE, because that way guests aren’t standing around waiting for the bride and groom as well as the families and bridesmaids and groomsmen to show up.

    IF you decide to do pictures before though, you HAVE TO make a special time to see your groom, just you and him, alone before.  I also suggest doing this with your dad.  THAT made seeing eachother for the first time on your wedding day more meaningful.

    Our guests would have to wait for us foreverrr if we did them all after. So we’re doing cute first look pics and the fun Bridal Party pics before… I’m hoping it will create some precious moments and make everyone comfortable for the ceremony. 🙂 I hated the idea originally… now I just keep seeing the benefits. I know it won’t steal the aisle moment b/c thats so special in itself and I’ll be wearing a veil. I want more in the church… w/ the fams.

    We did our bride and groom portraits before (we had a first look) and our bridal party pictures before.  The only thing we did after the ceremony was a few family formals (less than 5)

    All before. We’re doing a first look and getting everything done before so that we can spend the whole party with our guests.

    We are doing all the pics w/o us together before, because I really want him to see me for the first time as I’m walking down the aisle. However, guests will be shuttled to our reception 20 at a time so they will be standing around for a while anyway and they can go get a drink or two when they get there. We also don’t want lots of formal posed shots.
