Wedding Photo Musts: The Blindfolded Kiss

We are back discussing sentimental wedding moments. If you missed our previous posts, check out the grooms first look at his bride, the father and bride first looks. Today we are moving onto cute trend that I love. If you have not yet noticed, there is a pretty neat trend that is popular at the moment where the bride and groom come together for a private meeting before the wedding where they can meet. This may sound like it may be breaking with tradition, but it can be done in a several ways where tradition can still be observed. Sometimes the bride and groom meet behind the door so as not to break tradition {we will discuss this next time}. Other times, the groom may wear a blindfold in order to observe tradition. This way, the couple may meet to calm each other’s nerves, say a prayer or share a kiss as they prepare to stand up together in front of their friends and family. One of the sweetest photos you can snap of any wedding is this moment between the bride and the groom. Here are some beautiful photos of the bride and groom blindfolded kiss to give you some inspiration for your own wedding.


Hope you enjoyed this and got a few ideas of your own. Come back to see more wedding photo musts and other wedding ideas!

Wedding Photo Musts: Father and Bride

Last week, I discussed the grooms first look at his bride. We cannot overlook the sweet moment of the father of the bride’s first look at his daughter bride. It is just as tender as the groom first laying eyes upon his bride. These two men are both the main men in the bride’s life and their love is equally important – especially on the day where the bride traditionally leaves her parents and joins with her husband. It is always so sweet to see a father look at his adult daughter as if she were his little girl and that love permeates into photography. So, while the bride is getting ready behind the scenes to meet her groom at the altar, do not miss out on snapping some paternal photos of the bride with the first man of her life as she prepares to begin a life with her husband. To give you some inspiration for what you can look for, check out these photos.

Oh my goodness! These are just as precious!

Wedding Photo Musts: The Grooms First Look

A wedding day is the big day. After months of planning and a great deal of money spent, two families are brought together as a couple becomes husband and wife. With such significant moments happening all at once, it is very easy to miss the particularly precious moments and people that make a wedding special. Everyone remembers to take a photo of the wedding cake, but not everyone remembers to take a photo of the father of the bride when he first sees his daughter in her gown or the flower girl as she watches the bride get dressed. These are the tender moments that should not be forgotten, but can easily be overlooked. Since we like to help brides here at Inspiring Pretty, we are going to sharing the must-have photos for brides and examples to give you some creative inspiration to preserve the sentiment of your wedding.

Today, we are discussing one of my favorite moments of every wedding: the grooms first look at his bride. Usually this occurs as she walks down the aisle to meet him at the altar. For the couples that do not observe tradition, this may happen prior to the ceremony. Either way, getting the groom’s his raw emotion caught on camera will definitley make for an everlasting memory.



Be on the lookout for more wedding photo musts just like the grooms first look. They are coming soon!

Fourth of July Nail Art

A manicure has gone far beyond a simple application of nail polish to nail art. As we have mentioned before, we love nail art, and the birthday of declaration of independence of the United States is an ideal event to practice creating some creative nail art. To help you, I have some unique and creative Fourth of July nail art ideas for you to try out. There are many options to show off your patriotism through nail art. You can paint on Old Glory or creatively display stars. You can also take advantage of the day and paint on fireworks or  just show off the red, white and blue in creative ways, including true girl-fashion: in glitter. Whatever you choose, here are original Fourth of July nail art ideas to help you celebrate the day.

The most prominent way to show off your love of America is with the Stars and Stripes. And although it may seem common, there are many ways to do this, so it is easy to be original with your manicure {or pedicure}.


If you want something a little less on the nose, stars may be an option. After all, it still pays tribute to the flag, fireworks and the Revolutionary War. Plus, they are quite fashionable :)


If you simply want to celebrate the day , want to break away from the red, white and blue color scheme or if you just want something less common, try painting on some fireworks.


Or, you can make some nail art of your own by combining these elements or inventing your own. Tie die, ombre, polka dots, gingham and other designs can make for lovely Fourth of July nail art.


If you do try one, please send us a photo or leave a comment telling us how it turned out. Happy Fourth of July!
