This doesn't leave a whole lot of time for any portraits of the bride and groom together.
The groomals usually take placea few weeks before the wedding, in time for the portraits to be put up and displayed all over the reception place. It's really fun to wander around and check them all out.
I won't be doing them, as I am planning on creating my own artificial first look moment the day of the wedding. Do you think it's a trend that will ever catch on?
