Having a set wedding day timeline is very important for how the day will
go, and it starts with getting ready. When planning timeframe of your
day consider that the wedding photographer should arrive at least 1 hour
before the bride is ready. During this time, the photographer can get
detail shots like the bride applying her last bit of lipstick, getting
ready, dress, rings, invitation, bride sipping a glass of champagne,
gathering with bridesmaids when getting ready for your wedding day. Make
sure you have enough food for your and your hangry bridesmaids while
everyone will be getting ready.
Schedule a time for a first look. This sentimental moment is really
unique and you will never regret doing this. The photos of pre-ceremony
first look photo session will make more sense as you can schedule it in
better lighting place and it will be a much more intimate moment then
seeing each other for a first time at the ceremony.
When planning your day you should keep in mind that the worst time for
an outdoor photo shoot or outdoor ceremony is from 12 pm till 2 pm
because of the very harsh light. The best time is one hour before
To better understand when to start getting ready, begin with the time
that you need to arrive at the ceremony venue, and work backward. Ask
yourself what do you need to do before that and it will help with the
planning the timeline for your wedding day.
