One thing brides hate is a bad picture in their wedding dress. So brides, one sentimental way you can guarantee to get a good picture of a wedding dress is to have it painted by a real artist!

Hire a painter, no not that relative that can only draw stick figures, but a real artist like Joan Zylkin, The Event Painter, who can draw people and places at your wedding and wedding reception.
The New York Times recently covered live event artists in this article Captured Live, on Canvas.
You can even hang a picture of your wedding dress in your living room if it’s painted by a great artist like Laura Martindale.
Laura also painted the bridal party’s picture on these wine glasses.
Hiring a painter to paint at your event is a classic way to keep the day around you forever.
Karen Winters painted a couple in a gazebo from a distance, a scene that a photograph would make look too planned. If you can’t afford one of these artists, try going to a college art student or art teacher to paint your bridal party’s portraits (its a great thank you gift) as well portraits of your parents and other family members.
