This week our Wedding Photo Wednesday post is about the importance of giving a specific list of desired group shots to your wedding photographer. You can check out our other Wednesday Posts on the blog.
Today's Wedding Photo tip is another simple one that you may have already thought of but just in case, we want to let our loyal readers know what a good idea it is to give a very specific list of group shots to your wedding photographer. After you have your invitations out, RSVPs in and seating charts arranged, it is super important to think about and map out the group shots you want your photographer to get on your big day. Your wedding day is a day when family members who you might not have the opportunity to see each other often, will all be around and in their Sunday best. This is a fantastic opportunity to get some family photos. So think about who you would like pictures of and who should be grouped together, etc. You will want to arm your photographer with this information so that you don't have to try to remember during the whirlwind of your wedding day. Some group shots are obvious but make sure you get Aunts and Uncles and Cousins as well as your siblings and parents.
With a specific list from you, your photographer can make sure they get these important group photos and you can just enjoy yourself and time with all your friends and family.
This week our Wedding Photo Wednesday post is about creative wedding reception seating charts. You can check out our other Wednesday Posts on the blog.
We love to share the super cool ideas we see at weddings and lately we've been seeing some very creative reception seating charts. When planning your wedding reception your seating chart is one of the little details that can be fun to come up with and also make for very cool wedding photos. It's yet another way to tell the story of your day in it's entirety.
Christine and Rich (September 2010) actually put a California Lottery ticket in each of the envelopes which told guests where they were sitting. These envelopes were cleverly and adorably hung from a small tree on a table at the entrance to the reception. We love this idea! It was really quite gorgeous and so so unique.
Natalie and Ryan (October 2010) chose a more simple style of seating chart but still incorporated important elements. They used a rugged wood board which tied into the old winery theme as well as green tacks to incorporate one of their wedding colors.
This last example was unique and beautiful as well. The table charts were strung up along a curtain with lovely flowers. Each table was mapped out for the guests instead of each name being on a separate little card. We haven't seen this very often but love the idea.
What clever seating chart will you come up with for your wedding reception?
