Other than your actual memories which will fade and distort with time, your wedding photos are one of the best ways to remember your wedding day. In order to look back on that day with fondness, you want to do what you can to make sure your photos and everyone in them look flawless. That means some strategic planning and stepping up your beauty routine, and encouraging others in your wedding party to do the same, months before the big day. These photos and the memories they evoke will last a lifetime, so make sure you are doing everything in your power to make sure they turn out the way you want them to,

Here are a few tips on how you can make sure everyone looks their very best in your wedding photos.

Be wrinkle free.

As the bride standing there in your gorgeous gown, the last thing you want is for your groom or wedding party to be in wrinkled clothes in your pictures. Or, knock on wood, if you remove your dress from the bag and find it wrinkled. In either situation there is a solution if you find yourself and your wedding party getting ready somewhere without access to an iron. While having hair and makeup done, hang the wrinkled item of clothing on the outside of your shower then put your shower on the hottest setting. Come back in about 20 minutes and the clothing will be picture ready.

 

Ensure a good hair day.

Believe it or not, the journey to having a good hair day on your wedding day begins months in advance; in fact probably from the moment you get engaged. On average hair grows at ¼ inch per month, which is something to keep in mind when deciding when to get your hair cut for the big day. Develop a plan in advance of what you want your hair to look like and go from there. To make sure hair is strong and full looking try taking vitamins that contain biotin for at least three months before the wedding. For the bride, try two HUM Hair Sweet Hair vitamins daily. For the groom, try one hims multivitamin supplement daily.

 

Long wear makeup.

Just like your hair, you want yours and your bridesmaids makeup to look flawless throughout the long day. Let’s face it, makeup on its own tends to wear off and smudge after a few hours no matter what brand you’re using. This is why, on your wedding day especially, you should use a setting spray. Urban Decay’s All Nighter Long Lasting Setting Spray comes in a two-pack and is known throughout the beauty world for actually working and keeping makeup in place for long periods of time. With the two-pack you can even include them as a gift for your bridesmaids.

 

Smile for the camera.

Your photographer will probably include a variety of close-ups and full body shots. For those close-ups, you want to make sure everyone’s smile is gorgeous, gleaming and genuine. About a week before the wedding, start using Crest 3D White Whitestrips 1-Hour Express. By using these once a day while you watch a hour long television show, you’ll see full results after one week that will last about nine months. That way everyone will have pearly white teeth and big smiles for the photos.

 

Photograph throughout the day.

There is nothing worse than getting your wedding photos back and finding out someone was missing or didn’t look right in them. To keep this from happening it is best to have photos taken throughout the day. Start with some candids of getting ready and pre-ceremony. Then immediately following the ceremony, and shortly after arriving at the reception take some photos of the bride and groom, the bridal party, and immediate family. This way no one has had a chance to get food on them or start visiting the bar too early. Plus everyone will already be together so there is no searching for people or risk of them not being in the photos. To capture the rest of the day, get some more candids throughout the reception, especially early on.

From steaming clothing in a pinch to ensuring your wedding day is also a good hair day, there are plenty of ways to make sure that everyone is looking their best in your wedding photos. With this, they become priceless mementos of one of the best days of your life that you can look back upon fondly even as your actual memories begin to get foggy.
