I’m having mine on Wednesday–2.5 weeks before my real wedding! It’s an excuse to see how I photograph with my hair all done up and get used to holding flowers and being the "center of attention" etc. I did get a different dress tho…I don’t want to wear my "real" dress yet!

I actually took some time out during the reception fo a quick bridal session.  It only took about 30 minutes, and I think we got some really awesome pictures of me at our venue.  Honestly, it was kinda nice to get away from the super fun, but super loud and high-energy reception to have a few minutes of quiet time.  My husband came with me and the photographer and watched, so it was nice to get a second to just catch our breath.  🙂

I’ve heard bridal shoots are more popular in the south (our mamas want big portraits to hang over the fireplace?), but the idea has spread. Most people get them done a few months ahead. I’m having mine done a week before the wedding since I live in a different state and wanted to use the same photog as the wedding.

I got mine done already. I did them about 3 weeks before the wedding. It got me more comfortable wearing such nice, fancy clothes and having pictures taken. I was really awkward at first. Plus, it’s not every day you take pictures holding a bouquet, either.

A lot of times the bridal session is done about 2 months or so before the wedding. It’s a good time to try out your hair and make-up. There are way’s you can pose to minimize the dirt, but mostly it would be on the underside. And many weddings I have gone to they are printed large and framed in the entry way of the reception (also w/an engagement picture).
