I wouldn’t worry about the shoes at all – we did a first look and the bottom of my dress got quite a few dirt stains on it, and the shoes got mud about a centimetre up them.

Nobody at all noticed or cared when the ceremony rolled around – they all look at your face, the dress and the groom. Unless your shoes or the bottom of your dress and designed to stand out, no one is really going to look at them at all.

ETA: If you could keep your makeup person back for an affordable amount (or free) that would be great. Otherwise, make sure one of your bridesmaids is handy with makeup and willing to do touch-ups.

As for the rings – didn’t even notice the lack of ring photos. The photographer got a few of those after the ceremony, but we’re not planning on filling a photo album with pictures of our left hands, so we really only need a few of those photos.

You may want to wear flats if you’re going to be walking on grass. Another option is getting sole mates to protect your heels.

My make-up artist left before the first look and I was fine. I teared up a little during the ceremony but I wasn’t bawling or anything. If you’re worried you can ask your make-up artist what he/she suggests. 

I’ve honestly never even thought about how the first look photos don’t have our wedding rings. I’m not fussed for details though.
