I think most people on weddingbee do!  That was the hardest thing for meto get used to on the board, actually….everyone’s intense interest in the pictures. (I don’t share this interest, but I’ve gotten used to it)

As long as  you aren’t making yourself totally crazy, I think you are fine!

Absolutely! This was what I reeeeeaaaaaaaalllllllly wanted for our wedding because it looked so cool in the photos. It just didn’t work with our venue though, the ground was too sloped 🙁

Oh and when I burned myself a couple weeks ago, the first thing I thought was “Thank god this didn’t happen before the wedding, I would have ruined my photos!!!”

Other than the marriage itself, the most lasting, tangible part of the day will be your photos, so I think it’s perfectly acceptable and probably the smartest idea to look at things from a shutterbug’s point of view first. I’ve been doing the same thing. When I had my makeup trial, the first words out of my mouth were, “I want you to make my eyes look awesome in pictures.” 🙂

Is it okay? Sure, it’s okay!

 

…For me, though, I don’t want to see my wedding as an editorial spread (and my budget doesn’t get me anywhere to do that anyway!) and I certainly don’t want to forfeit actually being present at my own wedding for being too worried about how it’s going to look. Yes, photographs are memories, but I want to remember the EXPERIENCE and that comes from…being present. For example, we’re doing a buffet using plain ‘ol chafing dishes and serving on disposable plates–not too photogenic, but by saving on that stuff, we can afford better food! So I resigned to doing things the way I want to do it and have faith that a good photographer can capture the wedding in its best light (no matter how modest it is)

So sure, go for the fancy salt shakers and worry about your eye shadow and all that. Just don’t go overboard 🙂

I have a solution to your worry…get a photographer that is great at editing!  They can photoshop everything just as YOU desire!  lol

@MissTattoo – Heck, they can move things around, make blemishes disappear, etc.  Wish we could do that in real life!  haha

I think that line of thought is actually very normal.  At the end of the day, the only thing you have left are memories and pictures so it makes sense to want those pictures to capture your day in the best possible light.

Plus – it’s some of those fun, personal details that you incorporate that make you look back on your wedding and smile.  (well those along with the fact that you’re married!)
