All the crazy things you did your friends, will be the best memories you will ever have!

The coolest bachelorette party is when you have all your friends in one place, wearing coordinated pajamas, drinking tons, playing games, and having loads of fun! But one thing that you should not forget is to take many photos as possible to make it more memorable.

I can't keep calm, it's my BFF's wedding!

Why keep calm when you can dance your heart out and be a part of your BFF's most special day? Make sure you prepare a dance performance with the bride and surprise everyone. Pick a song that you both relate to or something that's the bride's favorite and ask your photographer to take the photos and even, videos, especially when you all are twirling. We are sure that you and your bridesmaids will cherish these moments for eternity.

This is one of the poses that will never go wrong and is super easy to follow. All you have to do is - either take one of your hands up and pose or use both hands and pose a similar way. Just make sure you and your gang are all smiling to get the best photos.

No wedding is complete until your friends and family take some crazy Haldi photos and ace the fun to the next level. Take some shots while you apply Haldi to her face, and one with the gang putting Haldi together. Get crazy, get wild, get all Haldi-fied. 

6. Dropping The Kaleera Pose

Kaleeras are beautiful accessories worn on the wrists of Indian/Punjabi brides during the Kaleera ceremony that takes place on the day of the wedding. They are hung with bangles or choora looking like gorgeous chandeliers. There are multiple options to choose from - from dainty kaleeras to personalized kaleeras, to elaborate ones. But the best photos of Kaleera ceremony are taken when the bridesmaids sit in line for the bride to play with her kaleeras and drop some on their heads. It is believed that if the kaleera falls on your head, you are next in line to get married. It's a fun ritual and taking photos here would only seize this moment to glorious memories.

14. Walking Down the Aisle

We are spellbound looking at grand bridal entries, especially with your bridesmaids. One such entry that we have loved in recent times is this one from Indian actor, Mouni Roy's South Indian wedding. The way the bridesmaids are all coordinated and are carrying traditional diyas, lanterns, and thalis is just very serene and pretty. 

PS: Love how there were flowers and lanterns kept on the stairs leading to the Mandap area.

15. Phoolon Ki Chaddar

While we have mostly seen the brothers holding the phoolon ki chaddar, but here, at Indian actor, Katrina Kaif's wedding, her sister holding the chaddar for her is wholesome. The love and affection these Kaif sisters have for each other are pretty evident in this picture. 

We also loved how pretty they all looked in coordinated outfits, showing their biggest smiles.

More importantly, dress up nicely and make lots of memories with your dearest sister on your wedding day and other wedding events, just like good old times.

You will always need your sister, no matter what. When you want to share your secrets, need someone's support, go shopping with you, get you ready for your big day or even give final touches to your bridal look and set your dupatta. Make sure you capture this moment in a photograph, so you can always look back at this sweet memory whenever you are missing her a little too much.

We love when the bride and bridesmaids' photos are on point. You can go for portraits or simply take natural, candid shots. They both make for great photos. 

20. Look Away from the Camera Pose

Candid shots are the most fun shots, but the beauty of portraits or planned poses is to another level. You can choose to look in the camera or look away in opposite directions while getting this classic shot that's going to be one of your most beautiful memory with your bridesmaids.

21. The Emotional Pose

The solace of a sister's love can never be felt than in her arms themselves.

The one when you cannot get enough of her. Hold her close and take the photo as you two feel like. It just needs to be unfiltered emotions coming your way, with nothing to pose.

No one can ever replace the love and affection you have for each other. Give the most heartfelt kiss to your BFF/sister, and save this memory for years to come. You can later print this photo and frame it so she is always there for you.
