    Amazing in person. I want to look the best on my actual wedding day. If the pictures come out so-so at least myself and my guest will know I looked amazing on the day

    In photos i guess, just because the photos capture the entire day and will last a very long time for many generations.

    Oh no!! I'm sure it'll look beautiful!!!! If this is something you're really concerned about, let your photographer know! This way you can ensure that they'll catch it at all the right angles and in the best lighting!!!
