Before you walk the aisle, you’ve got to get the ultimate Instagram snap of you and your best girls and we’ve looked through thousands of viral Bridesmaid shots to find the 7 steps you need to take to get the most likes.
1. Baby Got Back
A back shot is a must. Ask the photographer to arrange your Bridesmaids on either side of you, layout your trains, hook arms and stick your shoulders back!

2. Candid, but Posed, but Candid
The trick to a perfect Instagram shot is to master the art of the candid-posed shot. The photos are posed, but LOOK candid. We’re talking girlie whispers, dressing the Bride and the Bridesmaid gifts.

3. The Supermodel Posse
No one does this pose better than the Kardashian/Jenner clan. Think like a 90s girl band and each have your go-to pose and look, so when the photographer yells ‘say cheese’, you know what to do.
