Be sure to have a hair and makeup trial at least a month before your wedding. This will give you peace of mind to know exactly how you will look and give you the opportunity to change things in advance if necessary. Make sure to bring all jewelry to the trial to see how makeup shades work with the pieces.

Have your florist deliver your flowers to where you are getting ready, not the ceremony ce venue. You’ll want your flowers there and ready to go.

Find out what the r ules for cinematog raphers are at the ceremony location. All venues are different, some restricting the location of cinematographers and even the times in which they are permitted.

If possible, arrange to have your for mal photographs taken before the ceremony. Getting this step out of the way early in the day frees up the rest of your time to spend with your guests. You will be able to go straight to cocktail hour and catch up with loved ones without stress.

Have food delivered to your getting ready location. It may be hectic, but take the time to have a bite before the wedding since it will be a while before you have the opportunity to nourish yourself during the reception. You’ll want to make sure you feel your best!

P repare an emergency bridal kit with clear nail polish, mints, a sewing kit, stain treater, Visine, safety pins, bobby pins, pain reliever, and mini deodorant.

Allo wing 50% more time for hair and makeup than you originall y anticipated alleviates the number one reason wedding schedules end up running late. This will assure you have plenty of time for all the portraits you want to take before the wedding.

Make sure su you discuss a rain plan with your venue just in case Mother Nature doesn’t see sunshine in the cards.

AN UNPLUGGED CEREMONY

WHILE WE DO everything we can to create a stunning keepsake of your day, there are a few simple things you can do to ensure that you’ll love your film.

DITCH THE GUM

Consider requesting that your guests put their cameras and phones away during the ceremony. Oftentimes guests will raise their arms up or lean into the aisles to capture their shots, obscuring the view for your cinematographers and photographers.

Some couples rush their first dance, cutting the song early. Take your time! This allows us to capture the dance from a variety of angles, as well as the expressions of your nearest and dearest as they look on. Soak up the moment—you only get one first dance.

D ANCE LIKE YOU MEAN IT

Spread the word among your wedding party and Sp family—chewing gum on film is not an attractive look, even for the most beautiful brides and their attendants. Keep your mouth free from distractions so that we can capture your natural smiles, laughs and tears throughout the day. KEEP IT CLEAN

Task a few of your attendants with keeping the bride and groom’s preparation rooms free from clutter, to allow for a distraction-free setting. LISTEN UP

If you would like to have music playing as you get ready, choose something tasteful and keep the volume somewhat low. Don’t let the latest Top 40 hit ruin the some footage of Mom helping you into your dress!
