I know this has been discussed before, but I think it might be worth getting some new opinions and ideas.
How long do you all think would be a -minimum- amount of time to plan for pictures before the ceremony? I am planning on doing most pictures before the ceremony, but will do a few married pictures afterwards. I also don't want TONS of pictures, like the whole one of us with his parents, one with us with one set of siblings, one with that set of siblings and parents, one with the next set of siblings, one with the next siblings + parents, one with both sets of siblings, one with both sets plus parents, then add nieces and nephews and then repeat with the other side of the family (sorry, that was a little much!). I'm feeling the need to start sketching out a day-of-timeline, and I just can't quite figure out how much time we will need to plan for pictures.
I know of course that it will vary depending on all kinds of things, and our photographer gave us guidance but obviously left it up to us. For some reason I can see this as being the one thing that brings out my inner bridezilla. I have no patience for dilly-dallying around, so I can see myself doing the whole "You, here, NOW, or you're not in the picture" kind of thing.
Sorry for the way-too-long post! Any advice or guidance would be appreciated!!!
