I’m looking for some advice about a wedding I’m going to be in next week. I am a bridesmaid in my good friend’s wedding, and even though temps have been and according to the forecast will continue to be around 0 and below with windchill, the bride insists on taking outdoor photos. Wahh!
Our dress is strapless, and it’s unclear whether my friend will be gifting us any sort of wrap or stole, but even assuming she is, I think it’s a little crazy to expect us to stand outside for three (yes three) hours for pictures before the ceremony. Popping outside for a shot or two in the snow would be one thing, but the plan for the full three hours is to take pics in one outdoor location.
What would you do? Part of me thinks she’s my friend and it’s her wedding day so I should smile and bear it, but the other part thinks I don’t want pneumonia! Realistically, what are my options? And yes, definitely planning to take a coat for in between pictures along with hand warmers, leggings for under the long dress, etc.
