Kacie209:  my mom and sister helped me get dressed, I didn’t take getting ready photos as I was really self conscious of my body. So we just took bridal and wedding party pictures at my mom’s house

Kacie209:  I had my aunt as my PA. She helped me get into my dress and lace it up. As far as pics, I had my Maid/Matron of Honor help with pictures. My whole goal was to have the least amount of people with us when we did pictures so we could get through them (plus I didn’t want a ton of other cameras when my photog was trying to do her job). My Maid/Matron of Honor and brdiesmaids were capable of laying the train of my dress out for pics.

Kacie209:  My girls are the ones who will be lacing up my dress (they actually have to come to an appointment to learn how to do it) and than we have 2 photographers which they will help with the pictures when it comes to my dress placement/how it will look in photos. My photographers are a husband and wife team and she has a background in wedding planning. Than my girls will bustle my dress up when we finish pictures (they learn that when they learn how to lace the dress). Hope this helps

I mostly had my mom and my sister there the whole time, and then my Mother-In-Law, SIL, aunts, and a handful of friends came and went.  We didn’t have a wedding party so no bridesmaids.  So I guess my sister was kind of my “personal attendant”, but I certainly wanted her to feel free to come and go and not be obligated to stay by me the whole time…

My mom and bridesmaids helped me get dressed.  The photographer pretty much ran her own show– we met with her a week in advance, provided the requested list of shots we wanted, and she did the rest.  We had no problems.

I got ready at my parents’ house as well.  I had 3 BM’s (no personal attendant) and one helped me into my dress but I really didn’t need much help.  My dress did not have a train so there was not much for the BM’s to do besides get themselves ready.  I did not want any professional pictures of us getting ready.  Our photographer was a friend of my mom’s (he’s a professional photographer) so he was great in telling us how to pose and even would come up and fix our hair and dresses.
