4 Handy Tips on How to Survive Your Wedding Photo Shoot

Our photo shoot alone lasted for about 2 hours, imagine of going around the resort with hundreds of rooms! What we were thinking about it was, we paid for it though and we must admit, that this was something that we wanted to get over with, so that we can get back to our guests and get the party started. However, this is creating your lifetime memories of your Big Day, guests won't go anywhere and will be there until everything is finished! So why not take time to enjoy and take as much photographs as the photographer like, you paid for it anyway.

For you to be able to survive with hours and hours of your photo shoots session, I would suggest you pack yourself a goodie-bag that you'd carry through while having it and for the rest of your day, or you can ask your maid-of-honor or one of your bridesmaids to hold it and give it to you whenever you need it.

1) Touch-up make-up - Standing around with a permanent smile while the sun is beating down on you is no joke, but at least you can ensure that you look absolutely beautiful while doing it. Pack some touch-up make-up, especially lipstick and powder to take away any shine left by the weather (or your nerves).

2) Brush and clips - The weather (wind) or just going through the motions might have an unpleasant effect on the hair style you spent so much time on - more additions to your goodie bag would be a brush and extra clips or hairspray, if needed.

3) Tissues and wet wipes - A session like this can be quite time-consuming and as a Very Important Person (if not the most), you want to be prepared to get through this and still look like a million dollars! Tissues and wet wipes will come in very handy when it feels like you are melting away - a great tool for damage control!

4) Bottled water and snacks - The bride is usually way to nervous to eat something before the ceremony and way to busy mingling to have something after the photo shoot. Pack some light snacks to have in between shots, like nuts, a banana and a bottle of still water (cheese curls and Fanta Grape would be a bad choice!)

With this life-saver goodie bag by your side, you are now geared for any unforeseen events. Take a deep breath, bum in, bosom out and smile!
