3 Wedding Photo Poses to Retire in 2016
Here are the shots that never make it into albums.
From the pretty (ranunculus are the new peonies!) to hashtag-worthy (hello, #manbunmonday), wedding trends covered the spectrum this year. And while we can't wait to see what 2016 brings for brides and grooms, there were a few popular photography poses that we think are best left in 2015. Click through to see which made the list—and why!
Re-creating That Scene From Twilight
What works for the big screen may not IRL ... Case in point: The Bella and Edward-inspired pose was everywhere this year, even though Twilight film was released in 2012! But before you get one with nature, remember that you are in a beautiful, expensive wedding dress! Stay right side up; the grass is greener when you're standing, not lying, on it.
Tapping—More Like Grabbing—That You Know What
No butts about it: this picture is proof that some poses are better said than done. We get it: You can't keep your hands off each other, but tone it down one tier. Would you really want to put this in your wedding album for your grandkids to see one day? Ew, Grandma!
"Trashing" Your Dress
Just like we don't recommend lying in the grass in your wedding dress, we also don't recommend jumping in the ocean or a chlorine-drenched swimming pool in your beautiful gown! There are other methods to expressing your joy at a job well done, like dancing your heart out on the dance floor or dropping the mic at the after party.
