1. Dresses & Bridal (Custom) Hangers
This one is obvious, right?! Of course you will bring your wedding gown to the getting ready room! But, it is quite common to forget the custom hangers at home. So, go ahead and put them in the bag with the dress!
2. Wedding Shoes

4. Bouquets (Talk to your florist)
So, this could easily be called a wedding hack! If you call your florist and have them deliver your flowers to your getting ready space early in the day, this kind of gorgeous can happen! Sometime about a bouquet in detail shots makes everything seem so beautiful!

6. Bride and Groom Rings
Of course, this is a must! We have to take pictures of your rings! And, yes, they will look fabulous!
Your veil is more important than you think! I use it for backdrops for details, and then they are so gorgeous during portraits!! But, don’t worry if you don’t have one! I bring one with me for every wedding! 😉
8. Bridesmaids Gifts
Photographing bridesmaids opening their gifts is so much fun! The smiles, laughter, and excitement… it’s a highlight of the morning!
9. Perfume Bottle
If you plan on wearing perfume on your wedding day, bring the bottle! It’s such a romantic addition to the portraits!
10. Any Extras That You Can Think Of
Girl, if you have something you think will be cute, bring it!
