Trend Forecast: Bridesmaid Photo Shoot

And it's Wedding Wednesday!  (Can I get a 'woot'?)  We have so many amazing things going on this week, I had to remind myself to pause and write this blog post!

I think it would be SO. AWESOME. to have a photo shoot with your bridesmaids before the big day.  I don't mean a 'wear your bridesmaid dresses and smile pretty' shoot.  I mean a 'let's have fun and show some personality!' shoot.  Take this opportunity to let your bridesmaids wear their prettiest dresses (you can wear your favorite casual white frock!) and get some props together... Why not?

What better way for your girls to get to know each other, and for you to get comfortable in front of your photog?  I can totally picture this going down during the day of your bachelorette party or bridal shower.  (And heck, hire that photographer to document the rest of the festivities, too!)

How fun would a photo shoot like these be?!

I love it too! If there are any brides on the east or west coasts considering a bridesmaid photo shoot, I'll be darned if they don't use the beach! It's too beautiful to pass up for photos with friends.

I love that one too! I kind of wish I could go back and get a second chance at planning my own wedding... I would TOTALLY take the opportunity to have a fashion-y photo shoot a la JCrew!

I love all of these! It's such a fun idea to just take it easy with the girls. It makes for really cute photos, too!

That is a fabulous idea and I would have loved to do that! My Bridesmaids were only linked through me and not friends with each other so we will likely never all hang out again! A shoot would have been so fun!

Alicia, I was the same way! I think I almost had every bridesmaid from a different state... And what are the chances of having all of my best friends in one spot again?! Wish I would have done a girls' shoot, but my bridesmaids got along so well that I'm sure they wouldn't mind a reunion to do one someday!

I really, really wanted a shoot with my maids the day before the wedding but due to it being a destination wedding it just couldn't work out. Darn it!
