Q. I can't decide between a real or artificial bouquet -- which gives a nicer shot?
A. For close up shots that capture fine detail, real bouquets usually produce a prettier image. On the other hand today's artificial bouquets can be extremely beautiful -- and I've also seen real bouquets wilt in the hot sun. So depends on your taste and the circumstances! (And don't forget your manicure for the bouquet shots!)
Q. Is it worth spending the money to get a bride's nails done just for the one big day?
A. Yes, all brides should have their nails done. There are 3 close-ups where the bride's nails will make or break the beauty of the shot: exchanging of rings, holding hands with her groom, and holding her bouquet. French nails are in, and soft neutral coloured nails are timeless. Go for it!
