Just wondering if anyone had any experiences with pictures they wish they could do over or had done differently.
For instance, do you wish you had positioned your hands differently when kissing your husband or during the first dance. Perhaps you would have held your bouquet a different way or made sure you had a moment captured that wasn’t, etc.
I think some of the examples shared could be helpful to those that will be walking down the aisle in the near future.
Thanks in advance!

One thing I am keeping in mind is to not kiss my FI in EVERY photo.. I have heard multiple brides complain of having no nice “non kissing” pictures.

@mstellah: Some tips from a wedding photographer:
– remember to hold your bouquet low as you walk down the aisle. A lot of brides get nervous and the bouquet ends up being held up around their neck or even their face.
– during the ceremony, kiss and hold for 5 seconds. This will allow your photographer to get more than one quick shot of your kiss.
– don’t stare right into the camera as you walk down the aisle. Look to your guests and your new husband/wife. most of the time your spouse isn’t going to be looking at the camera too and it makes the photo a little awkward.

Don’t smile with your mouth closed and make sure you and the other ladies hold your bouquets under the flowers, not at the middle or base of the stems. Also, hold the flowers by your belly button, not up in your boobs.

I’m a stickler for a bride carrying her bouquet down the aisle too high. Carry it a little bit below your waist, with your thumb in the back of the stems at around your belly button.

Yeah, don’t pick your nose! Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

Dont do the same thing in every picture. If you change it up you wont have 300 pictures of the same expression which in the end you may not like at all. I wish I had dropped my bouquet more as well.

Don’t always pose ith your hand on your hip like girls do in every single picture ever these days! I think it’s so cheesy and takes away from natural movements!

My husband always comes up to kiss me and puts his arms around my waist and grabs my butt – then I put mine around his neck and lean up to kiss him. So of course that’s what he/we did for our first kiss and all I can see in the pictures is my fat arms. 🙂 And of course our first dance… same thing.
If you’re shaped anything like me – make sure you get a look at yourself in a mirror SITTING DOWN before you let anyone sit you down for photos. I looked fine standing – not too much cleavage, no armpit boob. And then the photog sat us down for a bunch of family pics… ugh. The boning in the dress pushed up so much that no matter how straight I sat my boobs were under my chin and it wasn’t pretty.
