7 Things To Keep In Mind Before Your Pre-Wedding Shoot!

Engaged? Check.

The next step on the road to getting married, for most modern Indian couples, is a pre-wedding photo shoot. Tell the world that you are going to be hitched with a beautiful photograph (or an album, if you want to).

Pre-wedding photography has taken the wedding scenario by a storm. In the age of social media, more and more couples are choosing to attach a picture to their ‘status update’. But a photo shoot can be confusing and without a proper plan, this endeavor can end in a disaster. Here are 7 things you must keep in mind before your pre-wedding photo shoot:

1. Budget

Firstly, and most importantly, figure out your budget. On one end of the spectrum you can hire ace photographers and hire exquisite hotels to shoot in. You can even go abroad to exotic locations like Dubai and make your pre-wedding shoot an extravagant affair. On the other hand you can choose to go minimalistic and have DIY photo-shoot with help from a few friends.

2. Theme

As more and more couples all over India are announcing the joy of their imminent nuptials to the world at large with a photo shoot, a lot more thought is being put into the theme with which they chose to tell their story. If you are a gym freak, then work-out can be incorporated into the shoot. If you are in love with Bollywood, recreate scenes from your favorite movies. Let your imagination run wild!

3. Location

Location helps add a dash character to your pre-wedding photo shoot. Now you can choose to go to a historical monument or hire a hotel or even go back to the scene of crime (a place of some significant emotional significance to the couple in question).

A picturesque setting immediately elevates the shoot to an enchanting level.

4. Outfits

The couple can adorn themselves with bespoke Manish Malhotra attire or wear their family heirlooms. They may even rent out clothes for this occasion.

On the other hand they may chose to “chill” and have fun in the sun, wearing summer clothes, floppy hats and flip-flops.

5. Props

Every marriage is a journey, try adding a ride to your photo shoot to bring highlight to joyous voyage that you and your partner are about to embark on.

Similarly, a number of props can be incorporated in the photo shoot to add a little element of fun to it. The high school sweet hearts could play around with books. Balloons are another way to float away to the highest of heavens.

Flowers can create a very romantic mood for the photo-shoot

 

6. Photographer

With the pre-wedding shoot becoming a norm, many veterans of wedding photography have entered this arena. Choose the right photographer who will do amazing photo-shoots with display great technical skills. The couple may go for a multi-location shoot spread out over a couple of days to capture their story.

Couples on a budget need not fret either. A friend with a DSLR and a beautiful location is all one needs to create a magical pre-wedding photo shoot.

7. Timing

If you are shooting in a public place, choose to shoot either early in the morning or late in the evening to get soft light settings. Furthermore, avoid a time when the place is known to be bustling with people who might enter your frame and destroy the perfect picture. Also make sure you have the required permissions.

For a successful marriage – Be the man you promised her to be!

You love the way she smiles, each time you look deep in her eyes the clock stops ticking for a while. Her pretty face makes you realize what you have gained and obviously you never want to see her in any pain. So just stop for a moment and ask yourself do her eyes startle each time she gets a glimpse of you? Are your arms the place where she forgets all? Are you being the man you promised her to be?

So get a checklist and start marking down as we bring out to you the Dos & Dont’s of being the man of her dreams.

 

Cook for her more often

young-nepalese-man-chef-fresh-vegetables-16692122

It does no good sitting in front of the idiot box and waiting for your lady to bring out the food. A so called ‘loving husband’ may argue that ‘I love watching her cook each evening. Looking won’t do it all. Get yourself in that apron and surprise her with a fabulous meal. This surprise is sure to turn out into a romantic one, you cook more often you have more good times together. Even if you are not good at it that genuine effort will surely win her heart again and in case you are a great chef you now how to mark yourself in your report card beside this point.

 

Don’t be over protective

Overprotective-Boyfriend-

You bring the world on her feet, you are her superman but one of the stupidest thing you might do is sheltering her from rain that she would love to be in. You should not forget that along with being a wife to you she is an individual who has her own dreams and aspirations. Don’t be that hiccup in the dream instead support and encourage her.

 

Compliment her

fmt_89_24_page-20-image-33.png

Nothing else will put a prettier smile on her face than a fine compliment. Women like to get compliments every now and then. Now she is your wife and don’t take her for granted, keep the relationship spiced up between you two. This will also make her feel confident about herself and the fire between you two is surely not gonna cool down between you two.

 

Don’t ignore her complaints

o-WOMAN-IGNORING-HUSBAND-facebook

You have a habit that bothers her a lot, you feel she just nags about it the whole time.  That’s exactly the place you really not want to be in if you care about your beloved wife or at least yourself. Its time you seriously look upon the things she does not like you to be in, have a talk with her or else times may come where you two will have to go through a bumpy ride.

 

A Weekend getaway

weekend-getaway-india-travel

You spent all your weekdays away from her, been busy with work, a long time since you held her in her arms. A surprise weekend getaway for your wife is sure to spice things up between you two. This getaway can also be a chance to work out things between the two of you if somethings have been off for a while. Your wife will realize that you love spending time with her and not just sitting around the bar crashing with your guys.

 

Be ready for her mood swingsc98

There is nothing in this world that can save you from your wife’s mood swings. Though you might not be the prey to this but you will get to feel its wrath in some or the other way. No husband would like to see her queen going through tough times so during times like these try and be a good listener. Do not be a judge instead be an attorney for whom his client (wifey) is always right. Later when she realizes that there was no need for being so crass she will understand that you are the perfect man for her.

 

Don’t leave her out for anything else

Dear Wife, I love you ‘unconditionally’, but …..

There is a story of a man who died and went to heaven to find two signs above two different lines. One sign said: “ALL THOSE MEN WHO HAVE BEEN DOMINATED BY THEIR WIVES, STAND HERE.” That line of men seemed to stretch off through the clouds into infinity.

The second sign read: “ALL THOSE WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN DOMINATED BY THEIR WIVES, STAND HERE.” Underneath the sign stood one man.

He went over to the man, grabbed his arm and said, “What’s the secret, how did you do it? That other line has millions of men and you are the only one standing in this line.”

The man looked around with a puzzled expression and said, “Why, I am not sure I know. My wife just told me to stand here.”

We have all heard jokes about the husband being dominated by the wife but ladies jokes apart your husband might actually be annoyed of some of your habits that you might do just out of love and concern. So just immediately stop any of those habits that might match with the pointers given below.

1. Spooking around everything he does:

Spying-on-spouse

Be it a lone ride on his bike or talking to a friend, always poking around and asking for reasons to everything is surely going to harm the understanding between you two. Everyone needs to have that personal space in their lives. The thought of ‘do jism ek jaan’ thing might not be amusing to all. Try and approach him in a comforting manner and have a good talk which might end up to be a great night. Pinching him for no reason might compel him to hide things just to make things comforting for you.

2. Thinking that your way is the only right way

slap

You might be good at things but doing something differently is also not wrong. You married the man knowingly that he is a responsible man and can take care of the situation whenever the circumstances are not favorable for you. Just overruling upon your husband’s opinion may first of all annoy him and also in some cases lead him to lose his self-confidence. Have a talk with him on issues that you should both work out together no matter big or small.

3. Telling him that ‘these are just not the right guys to hang out with’

91653749

Remember ladies that your man has friends whom he knows even before he went down for you. Instructing him to stay away from that guy just because he has bad table etiquettes or ‘he knows nothing other than making fun of others’ might not ruin their friendship but might totally give a scratch to your relationship. Your man is mature enough to be in the right set of guys, thats where the trust factor kicks in. He trust upon all his dudes and also expects you to have the same trust from you towards him.

4. Taking your husband to be a mind reader:

unsociable-media-man-ignoring-woman-date

Your husband might fall prey for the fact that all men are perfect mind readers, but sorry to correct you ladies, your husband might be great at making up to you or cheering you up at times you feel low, but please excuse them if they are unable to realize that you wanted a tight hug from him during that last over of the match while you were having a tough time realizing in your mind that you have loads of work upon you lined up for the next day. Do not create an issue just upon this instead what you can do is that have a chat praising him over his cute habits and bringing in something that you expect from him but framing it in a way that he likes. This will surely spice-up things between you too and you never know he might actually turn into a great mind reader. (#ladies never get their facts wrong)

5. Expecting your husband to be the perfect prince charming at all times:

9caaf4b32d610fcda4a20858aa83b700

There is no such thing as a perfect prince charming given that your marriage has its existence in the real world. Instead of focusing on your man’s shortcomings try and recognize the wonderful things about him. “What’s good with that?” your husband might be encouraged to be more of the prince charming you want him to be. Men surely would die for ladies who could see the good across all the bullshit within them.

6. Bringing up issues from the 16th century during a fight:

landscape-1439415773-gettyimages-148360742

You might have a tendency to use the weapon called ‘Don’t you remember what you did that summer evening’ , warning:  summer evening might even refer to that time when you cried for the first time. This weapon is considered to be highly dangerous carrying within it the power of ‘taking the discussion nowhere’. It is requested that this weapon should not be bought to use until it is the end of the world. Ladies you are strictly advised to handle the issue like a sensible person and not like a complete maniac.

 

7. Dishonoring him:

Angry couple mad at each other

This might hurt your man from the very core and might affect him severely. Any person in any scenario does not expects disrespect. Getting this from a person whom you swore to live and love your whole life is sure to give out an ever-hurting scar. Be careful of what you speak to you husband even at times you are going through a fight. The fight will be temporary but those harsh words will surely be permanent.
