Perhaps the most essential posed picture for a wedding is the group photo of the wedding party. This often includes the couple, bridesmaids and groomsmen, flower girl, ring bearer, and sometimes the couples' parents and the officiant. To keep it traditional and simple, pose the wedding party in front of the altar, a building or a garden. For fun, add some creative and funny poses that bring an instant smile when you reminisce through the years.

If you have a large wedding party, or you have special relationships between certain members like siblings or best friends, consider adding extra posed pictures that feature those special groups. Later, you can give prints of these photos as thank-you gifts.

If the couple isn't superstitious about the groom seeing the bridal gown before the big day, stage all the posed wedding photos a few days in advance. This can relieve the pressure of posing during the rush of the big day.
