- Stand up straight! I am slouching in so many of my pictures - don't let that happen to you!!!
- The bouquet is going to be BIG and HEAVY! My coordinator gave me some very helpful advice - hold the bouquet so that your arms kind of rest on your hips. That way, your arms don't get as tired, and the bouquet won't block the pretty top of your dress during pics!
- Bring a snack to the ceremony! At the last minute as we were leaving for the ceremony site, I grabbed a box of Triscuits - saved me and my bridesmaids from starvation during pre-ceremony and post-ceremony photos!
Wear the right sunscreen! If you're having an outdoor wedding, sunscreen is a must - but which one? My make-up artist Sherrie Long suggested Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15 because it doesn't have a certain compound (can't remember...zinc oxide? titanium dioxide?) that reflects light when flash photography is used. I actually liked the moisturizer so much that it's what I use every day - it's light, leaves my face feeling moisturized all day, and gives good everyday sun protection without the stinky-ness of most sunscreens.
