GETTING READY17 Aug, 2017 1000 Days Content Challenge Subscribe
“GETTING READY” is one of the most important sessions in a wedding for it kickstarts the whole mood of the wedding. Trust me, it does. If it is planned well, everything ahead goes on smooth and peaceful. But if it is rushed and haphazard, then chances are that the wedding might also be so too. There is a sense of haste that is hard to beat then. I always almost take a class for the brides I shoot, that all it takes to enjoy the big day is to be prepared and be ready a little early. That’s not asking too much, right? Just starting the make up session much before the time you have to be ready makes so may things easier. But almost always the brides are late. So what possible thoughts can we share with them in prior so they can shine in style? I want this to be a prep-list for wedding photographers to send it to their brides and say, ‘Just follow these points for a peaceful, enjoyable mood during the wedding!’
- Plan the timing right and plan out to be really early. If you have to be at the mandap or the stage at x hours try to plan your make up to be over by x-2 hours.
- Rehearse your makeup and hair way before your wedding day so you are not confused. There are so many times the brides are not happy with what they see and they want to change their look and it almost doubles the make up time. Its funny sometime the family members/so call experts take the call and say the style has to be changed.
- Do not have multiple choices for your jewels. So many times brides spend time contemplating which chain/ear ring/necklace to wear and waste a lot of time on it. Always remember, your smile is the most precious jewel you can ever wear. Everything else will fall in place.
- Pack all your stuffs in one suitcase and have it always with you. Searching or sourcing for something in the last minute will only make the situation worse.
- Do not let multiple people get ready in your room. It is your exclusive room and only you should use the space at ease. Its also a pain for the make up artist if people line up and but you paid him for only your makeup. You should hire a separate makeup artist for all your relatives, that way, everyone is happy.
- Try to get ready in the venue premises only. A lot of times, the event start time coincides with the peak traffic time oand you don’t want to spoil your make up and mood during the transit.
These are my two cents. I’d love to hear if there are any points that we can add to the list.
