5 tips to Walk the Aisle with Style on Your Wedding Day

Walking down the aisle on your wedding day can be an emotional and memorable experience. Here are five tips to help you feel comfortable and look your best as you walk down the aisle to happily-ever-after!

Tip #1 - Don't Block the Shot

The first time you see each other walking down the aisle is a special moment that you will remember forever. But if your wedding party, or even your celebrant, is walking down in front of you and blocks the shot, then that moment will be lost forever. Find out if your Celebrant likes to walk down the aisle before you and if so ask them to go quite some distance ahead of you so they don't block the shot..

Tip #2 - Leave a Gap

It’s nice to be able to get photographs of your wedding party as they walk down the aisle, so again ask them to also keep some distance in front of you and each other. Leave a decent sized gap between you and the wedding party, and this will give your photographer the opportunity to get some amazing shots of you walking down the aisle. It will also build anticipation for your entrance.
