How to Coordinate your Bridal Dressing Room. How to plan your wedding morningThe best place to start coordinating your wedding is at the very beginning, with your Bridal Dressing Room. You will wake up on your wedding morning and need to go somewhere first. This magical place where you will get ready and begin taking your first pictures {that will last a lifetime} is what we call your Bridal Dressing Room. Just like any other project, the Bridal Dressing Room requires ingredients, lists, and proper directions to be completed successfully.

How to Coordinate your Bridal Dressing Room

I want you to think about your wedding morning and all of the amazing people who will be there with you. Got your mental list? I bet you’re forgetting someone. Now think about all the moments you are going to experience in those fleeting few hours. Who do you want there and what should be captured? You cannot risk losing those moments… Your assignment is two part. First a list and then a Pinterest Mission.

 Prepare for the Memories…

  1.  Write down a list of names for everyone who is allowed entry into your room. Maybe you want someone there, and not someone else? The key though is to acknowledge on paper that you want them there so that you remember to tell them to be there. People won’t assume you want them there (or others whom you don’t want will assume they get to be there…just the way it works!)
    1. For example, It might be really important to you to have your mom see you when you first walk out and do a reveal in your wedding dress. She will need to know she is expected to be there and when. For all she knows she doesn’t have to be there until Noon for family pictures. Communication! Think about who needs to be told and then work out the photography schedule so that everyone is in the right place.

Bridesmaid Photo List

Go on Pinterest and start pinning pictures you love of the wedding party getting ready or girls only. Here is the GEG Project 0 Board if you need some inspiration. There are some really inspiring ones and hilarious ones too!Here is the Assignment for the List:

  1. Save your Top 9 Pins as Pictures in a folder on your desktop
  2. Go to print them by selecting the “wallet” size setting which will print all 9 on one sheet.
  3. Pack that in your Project Zero Bag

You’ll have it with you that morning for quick reference! No matter how great your memory is, that morning you won’t remember the poses you pinned.

Communicate with your Photographer

For courtesy and efficiency sake, make sure you inform your photographer that you have a Bridesmaid Photo List you want to try. Be clear that you aren’t imposing on their creativity, since after all, that is why you hired him/her, and that we are never asking them to copy some else’s work. They have creative license to use your inspirations. Show them the list prior and let them expand on it. The more information you provide them with for your wedding photography vision the better! Efficient Teamwork is key!

There are some emotional shots you’re going to want too. Be sure you communicate to those people what you want them to do for the sake of the picture. For example, of everyone in my dressing room I wanted to ensure it was my sister who put on my veil because I borrowed it from her. I also wanted the photographer to be clicking away because I knew we would undoubtedly catch these gems which are some of my all-time favorite wedding pictures! Doesn’t Kelsea’s makeup look stunning? Must be her beautiful face! 😉
