I know you have researched, planned and picked the brains of all your friends on everything that you need for your wedding day. But let me tell ya, after shooting 1.6 zillion weddings, this small list of items are vastly overlooked by most brides. I actually do try to carry these items on hand, but not every photographer will have them, so it’s good for you to be prepared girl fran.
Command Hook (& Hanger). While I would say a good majority of people order a custom hanger, it is worth mentioning if you're at crunch time and you can't order anything, at the very least a wooden or satin hanger. Either of those hangers will be a huge step above the plastic! In the past, I have also been able to find a generic 'mrs' hangers at Tuesday Morning. Now on to the item you may not have been expecting, a command hook! Here's why! When your photographer is looking for a spot indoors to hang your dress and has extremely limited options, they will love you to itty bitty pieces when they can't find a spot and you have this on hand to create more options. While my personal favorite place to do dress shots is outdoors, this isn't always possible, and creating more options inside is *awwwwwe-some*. (Please sing that when you read it!)
Solemate Heel Protectors. If you are wearing heels and you are walking through grass, you deffff need these! While they're not really ideal for walking on regular surfaces, pop them on before walking on grass because it will make doing photos SO much easier for your life! Buy now, thank me later!
Crochet Hook. I know right? You're probably wondering why the heck this made the list. But seriously guys this is probably the number one handy little tool you can have on your wedding day *if* your dress has a satin button closure. I would say about 60% of my brides have these buttons aligning the back of their dress and this handy little tool makes it SO much easier! This is especially a day saver if you're running behind time at all, because this will make this process much faster!
That's it, the three vastly overlooked items that can be your wedding day life saver!
