With some wedding parties reaching almost two dozen people, it can be difficult to figure out how to pose everyone in an aesthetically pleasing way. This becomes an even bigger conundrum considering the modern trends of mismatched bridesmaid dresses, uneven bridal parties, and coed sides. While of course your photographer will have some ideas, it’s always better when you can give them a sense of what you like. That’s why we’ve gathered some of our favorite collections of bridal parties – all from real weddings. From classic arrangements to taking advantages of nearby steps to bringing chairs, there are plenty of photos to help you imagine how you and your nearest and dearest should pose on the big day.
Click each picture to see beyond the pose and view the whole celebration, and browse our galleries for brides and bridesmaids as well as grooms and groomsmen to be further inspired for your additional wedding party portraits.
