Aside from moments shared with the groom, a bride has her own wedding moments that she will cherish for years to come. From the makeup session to the bouquet throw, countless moments form a bride's memories of her nuptials.

Below, we've compiled our favorite shots of the bride on one of the happiest days of her life. Make sure to add the ones you like to your wedding inspiration board and show them to your wedding photographer.

Early in the morning, the wedding day starts with the hair and makeup session. Some brides stay calm throughout the whole process, while others are already very excited at this point. Whichever bride you may be, be sure to have this moment captured.

Don't forget to also get a shot of your wedding hairdo taken from behind, since you won't be able to see the back of your head yourself. Wedding-day hairstyles, especially for traditional weddings, are usually very intricate and too beautiful to miss out on.

After the makeup is done, don't forget to take a beauty shot of your face. Focus on the details of the makeup, like your eyes or lips. If you're taking the DIY wedding makeup route, ask your photographer to snap a picture as you are applying your makeup.


Hand Shots

If you're planning to throw a festive Indian wedding, don't forget to capture your henna. It is said that different patterns of henna symbolize different blessings for the marriage. Some traditional Indonesian weddings incorporate this ritual too, as you can see in this couple's vibrant Koto Gadang wedding.

Some couples prefer to not meet in the morning of the wedding day. However, they sometimes give little gifts to one another. Make sure to have a shot of yourself writing a note for the love of your life, and another one of you reading a letter from him.

And when everything is in place, a bridal shot is definitely necessary. You can take a shot of yourself from any angle as you may please. From the side like this lovely bride,

Or from the front. A tip, if you're wearing an exquisite backless dress, take a shot facing away from the camera and show off that sexy back!


Holding the bouquet

A bride holding her bouquet is a pretty sight to see. There are plenty of ways to this kind of shot. You can ask your photographer to play around with the depth of field, focusing on the bouquet while keeping your face blurry. Or, you can also take the shot neck-down and focus more on how well the bouquet sits with the dress.


Bridesmaids

Bridesmaids make every wedding celebration so much merrier and a shot (or twenty) with them must never be forgotten.


Flower girl moments

Don't forget about the little flower girls! Having flower girls in your wedding is not only cute; they will also add a sense of innocence to the wedding.


Veil shots

Before wearing your wedding veil, play around and take some photos with it. A veil will add a dramatic effect and when styled correctly, can make a wedding photo look so artistic.
