A wedding photographer has gone viral with her hack for ensuring a bride’s necklace stays in place on the big day and does not ruin the photos.
Wedding photographer Gabby Morgan Swaine, who is based in Springfield, Illinois, revealed how brides can ensure their necklace stays in place all day — by using eyelash glue.

In a viral video, that has amassed over 2.6 million views on TikTok, Swaine shared a video of one of her brides using eyelash glue to secure her necklace pendant to her chest while getting ready to walk down the aisle.
“Wedding day hack: eyelash glue on the back of your necklace to keep it in place all day long,” Swaine writes in the TikTok video posted earlier this month.
‘This Hack was Made For Wedding Photographers’
According to the Daily Mail, Swaine, who runs GM Photography with her sister Tori and her husband Matt, worked her first wedding when she was just 15 years old.
Swaine said that the hack was useful for both brides and photographers — as it ensures that jewelry stays perfectly in place for all the wedding photos.
“Dear brides, eyelash glue is your new best friend,” Swaine explains in the video caption.
“This hack was made for wedding photographers [because] it ensures the bride’s jewelry stays in place all day, making it one less thing to worry about in photos.”
Thousands of TikTok users praised Swaine’s ingenious hack and several brides lamented that they did not know this tip for their own wedding day photos.
“Where was this when I needed it? That’s all I notice in our wedding pictures,” a former bride comments.
Wedding photographers have various tricks up their sleeves to achieve great images and make their subjects feel relaxed. PetaPixel previously reported on a wedding photographer who asks her clients to pretend to be drunk for pictures.
Another wedding photographer has a similarly novel approach for breaking the ice: asking her clients to “teeth kiss.”
