They’ve been with you through late-night Maccas’ runs, chocolate binges, bad boyfriends and mean bosses – they’re your best girlfriends and on the Wedding Day, you’ll want to capture photos that all of you can treasure for years to come.

Here are seven must-get photos of you and your ‘maids before you become a Mrs!

1. Matching Outfit Shot

A pre-dress shot with your bridesmaids is not only classic, but necessary! Whether you’re wearing robes, shirts or matching tracksuits, this is a perfect way to document your day.

2. Champagne

A few champers is a great way to kick off your special day and the perfect cure to any pre-wedding jitters.

3. Getting Ready

Most wedding gowns are too much dress for one girl, and that’s where bridesmaids come in! Whether your maids are tying your back or holding the dress while you slip your leg in – this kind of photo is sure to trigger an out-pour of memories when you look back.

4. ‘How You Met’ Signs

A photo like this truly does tell a thousand words. This idea is quirky, yet sentimental and will transform your photos from ordinary to bespoke.

5. Candid Shots

Candid shots are little treasures that you keep close to your heart. Behind-the-scenes snaps of you and your bridesmaids capture the genuine happiness felt on your special day.

6. The First Look

The only thing that comes close to capturing the Groom’s face when he first sees you is capturing the face of your best girlfriends when they get the first peek. Seeing their eyes light up when they get a glimpse of you in your gown will be a picture you’ll treasure forever.

7. Finishing Touches

Whether they’re taming some extra frizz, fixing your jewellery or putting your shoes on – your bridesmaids are your posse for the day and they make sure you look your absolute best. Getting a photo of them in action is a ‘must-have’!
