Our ceremony is at 6 pm and my fiance doesn’t want to see me in my dress until I walk down the aisle, so we won’t be doing any pics beforehand. I’d like to get a few “getting ready” pics with the bridesmaids, though, because I got us all cute robes lol 🙂 I’m not sure how early the photographer should get there because I’m not sure when I’m supposed to be all ready with my dress on. I’ve heard people say that an hour before is too late for pics of me getting my dress on, etc (I don’t want pics of me getting ready ready–makeup, hair, etc)
So I’m Kindof confused. Am I supposed to be dressed and stuff THAT early?

Our ceremony was at 2:30. I put my dress on at 12:45, and I was completely dressed by 1:15. We left for the ceremony around 1:50, and then sat on the bus, ready, until it was go time. Our photogs were scheduled to arrive at 12, but actually showed up at 10am. They did detail shots and some getting ready pictures with the girls, then did getting ready pictures with the guyA (who left for the ceremony at 1), then came back for my getting dressed pictures

kortizi0: We are not taking pictures before the ceremony either so this is how I have it worked out with the photographer. The ceremony is at 4:30p.m and I am going to be ready to go by 12:30. He wants to take pictures of me alone between 12:30 till 1-1:30 and by 1 he wants all the bridesmaids ready to go so he can take pictures of them as well. Then we take pictures of all of us girls, then picture of myself with my parents, in laws, and the party that is going to be going down at my in laws house (that’s where I’m getting ready, their staircase is sick, my FMIL is dying for someone to use it for pictures so I’ll be taking them there). And then that’s it! off to the church.
My FI is doing the exact same thing but at our house. The other photographer is basically following the motions the same as mine. This way after the ceremony all we gotta do is take pictures with the entire bridal party, entire family and us alone.

Thank u ladies!! That helps 🙂
I should also add we are getting hair and makeup and everything done at the venue, so we won’t have any travel time to account for. I hadn’t thought about the fact that she will wanna take pics of me before probably and detail shots, good point!! I thought I had to be all ready in my dress hours before and just sit there and wait haha!
