"Bridal portrait sessions serve as the perfect opportunity to see how your entire bridal ensemble [ wedding gown, hair, makeup, accessories ] comes together. You can make any necessary adjustments before your actual wedding day. I also think this is a great opportunity to do a bouquet test run as well. Have your florist make up a mock wedding bouquet for you to use during your portraits, that way you can make sure it is exactly what you wanted. This was one of my biggest regrets for my own wedding, because come the day of I was left 30 minutes before my ceremony with a caked on face of makeup and heavy eyeliner that definitely was not my personality and left me in shock but no time for changes!"
