Photo 19-24: Gentle Ideas With Accessories

Rather than a specific style, consider naming an accessory as your party theme. Instructing your guests to adorn hair accessories like antiques, pearls, or flowers will ensure continuity while allowing your guests to do whatever they want with their hair. Often enough, the wedding gown defines the style, but your guests will arrive in an assortment of colors and styles. A common accessory goes to great lengths to find common ground and an adhesive style. Perhaps your best option, accessory-based themes merges flexibility with continuity.

Telling your guests “you do you” may be the absolute best option. Although they respect your theme wishes, they are multi-generational, have their own look, and have their own style. The best photoshoots capture your friends and family the way that they truly are. Removing rules and limitations to design cues will provide you with photo memories of the guests you love.
