    I think bridal portraits are a great idea if you can afford them. They let you feel what it’s like to walk and move in your dress and shoes. Kind of like a dress rehearsal for your wedding. I’m contemplating doing this and I think I would choose different hair and makeup, just to have fun with different looks. I think the only regret you might have is if you feel you look better one way or the portraits turn out better than the wedding photos (or visa versa). I don’t think I’d regret them not looking the same.

    I think the portrait is a great idea. I would love to do that but I am on a tight budget and have already gone over as far as the guest list. I would think doing a different look might be cool so you get some variety of shots. Even if you do it the same I bet its worth it to have more to pick from. I wouldn’t stress it. I bet you will look beautiful both times if someone good is doing hair and makeup.

    I’m planning on doing my bridal portraits on the same day as my hair and makeup trial, figured I’d kill two birds with one stone! So by default mine will be the same. Plus I’ll be able to see how my look will turn out in photographs the day of and tweak it here and there if necessary. I think the half-up half-down sounds pretty though!
