also one thing that’s not a bridal pose, but connected to pictures – BAD PHOTOSHOP.

I can’t stand the pose where the bride and the bridesmaids are at the bar pretending to get smashed.  Klassy!

I hate the shot of bride with all the bouquets on the train and groomsmen picking up the bride, or anything shot at a russian angle, horizons are supposed to be straight!!

@JellyFeet:  Haha! I want to see one that says “I stole her heart” … “So in 5 years, I’m stealing half his shit.”

Anything posed bugs the crap out of me. I also hate the bouquet on the dress pics. Thankfully our photographer is unconventional, and also hates posed pics

I’m surprised so many people hate the “last chance to run” sign, its funny. I’m doing this at my wedding, but I’m a very laid back girl in general. It was my idea to do the sign, nothing wrong with a little humor, I think it will help break up the nerves for my fiance before I walk down the aisle. Thats just me. 🙂 Coming from the bride who will be having a Beer ice sculpture because my fiance wanted one. Its his day too.

I cannot stand the bridal party holding up the bride or groom! They never, ever look good or natural and who really wants that as a pic anyway?

Also, although the jumping ones seem like a fun idea, they almost never turn out good either because it’s SO hard to get everyone jumping at the same time.

I was also pretty adament about not doing any overly bridal pics from like the 80’s/90’s where you do the Olan Mills pose resting your hands on your face like you’re doing your senior pictures.

haha…some of these I don’t mind, like the bar one.

I am not a fan of cutting off peoples heads in some attempt to be artsy.  I also don’t like anything overly posed and cheesy…so ones where the Bridesmaid or Best Man will hold their hands up to their mouths like they’re shocked about the kiss, etc.  Anything overly posed.

I also don’t like the signs: she is stealing his last name…,etc.  They just scream Pinterest to me in a way that makes them completely boring now.  Whereas they would be cute if EVERYONE didn’t seem to be doing them.  But more power to you if you want them!

Otherwise I also hate any editing or way people shoot where they look like 80s photos…that fuzzy effect or fuzzy white border crap.

I also really dislike the “last chance to run” or the bride pulling the groom down the aisle.

I am probably alone on this, but i really don’t like pairing the bridesmaids and groomsmen up with one another for photos, like they are “couples” too. I think this is what finally made me decide that it’s totally cool to have an uneven bridal party. I was recently in a wedding and the photos where I had to link arms and flirtatiously laugh with some random groomsmen just look stupid.
