The 7 Essential Photos You Must Get of Your Wedding Dress

Since you're only going to wear your wedding dress once, it's important that you cherish every moment in it and get lots of photos to capture you looking stunning in it, as well as all the unique details. You spent plenty of time choosing it, after all. To give you some inspiration, we've put together this list of 7 essential shots you must get of your wedding gown. 

1. On the Hanger

No competition here. A shot of your dress languidly hanging on a wall or in front of a window or mirror gives it all the attention it deserves.

5. The Train

If you have a train on your dress, get a photo with it fanned out so you get a true sense of what it looked like.
