@italksalot2u:  I would discreetly ask around if anyone took photos, take them off of FB, etc.  You can save a FB picture on your own computer, then send it to CVS or snapfish to print.  You’d be surprised how many wedding pictures you might have floating out there!  Some of my best shots were taken by guests.

I wouldn’t bother staging for new photos.  What about having an anniversary party and taking formal shots then and combining everything?

I have no suggestions but I am so sorry you are going through this. It would be heartbreaking. Was it a good day, do you at least have happy memories from the day?

You could also create a share site on a photo site (like shutterfly, snapfish…etc.) and then send out an email/fb message or whatever else with the link to the share site and ask that any friends or family who took pictures at your wedding to upload them to the share site. This is what we did and we have almost 1000 pictures from just our friends and family.

Good Luck!

Just a question (not trying to be snarky, just genuinely curious!), how come you didn’t take photos inside when it was raining instead of not taking them at all? And how come you couldn’t get any family photos? Was there not enough time because you were late to the ceremony, or for some other reason? Sorry, just curious!

It’s really unfortunate that you couldn’t get all of the shots you wanted 🙁 Are there any photos that the guests took that you could use?

I also like the idea of the anniversary party – that way you could get some family shots and also have a get-together, instead of just getting everyone together specifically just for photos.

Aww I’m sorry you didn’t get those pics of family, especially now since some of them have passed away 🙁
That sucks about the weather and the tent! And I can definitely understand your disappointment over not getting a lot of the photos that you wanted. Would it be possible to dress up again and get pictures just with your parents/immediate family members?

Hopefully you can get photos of your other family members at an anniversary party or family get together!
