It calms nerves!
Will Mann of wmannphotography says the pre-ceremony reveal “actually relaxes the bride and groom, and they enjoy themselves.” What better way to calm pre-wedding jitters than to be able to be with the person that calms you best- your fiancé. Couples can forget about any problems before the wedding, whether it’s late bridesmaids or the wrong color flowers, when they see the reason why they are having their wedding in the first place- the love of their life!
It provides for an awesome photo-op!
Many couples are opting for a pre-wedding reveal for the awesome photo-op it provides. A pre-ceremony reveal can be one of the, if not the, most emotional and special parts of your wedding day. The pictures during a reveal are some of the most candid and beautiful pictures you may get on your wedding day- so if you’re looking for some real, un-posed pictures, opt for a reveal!
It saves you time later during your day!
Taking pictures during a reveal can free up more time during cocktail hour, says Mann. Traditionally, couples hold a cocktail hour for post-ceremony pictures. With a pre-ceremony reveal and photo-op with your family and parties, couples will have “more time to enjoy the cocktail hour and mingle with their guests,” says Mann. Without a post-ceremony photo-shoot, couples can enjoy those butternut squash soup shooters they specially ordered for the cocktail hour!
When deciding to keep or break traditions, it’s up to the couple. “It is all about finding your style, what you like and don’t like,” says Mann, “Blogs, Pinterest, and all forms of social media are the best ways to keep up with current things. If you have an idea, go with it- maybe you will be starting the next big one!” To see some of wmannsphotography’s beautiful work, or to book him for your next event, visit www.wmannphotography.com.
