We completely forgot to do them 🙁 so I’m hoping that our photographer got lots of the family when he was wandering around, fingers crossed!

That sucks :(. We haven’t gotten our photos back yet (our wedding was a week ago), but I know it’s always running through my head “did we get a picture of z? What about with z?” our photogs are amazing and between them and the help of our DOC I know we hit every group combination on our must take list, but I’m still worried. For example, our engagement pixtures were amazing and lovely- except out of 300 pictures there wasn’t a single one where we were both looking at the camera and smiling. Not one! I’m 99% we got one at the wedding, though, but I won’t know for sure until I see them!

lperry83:  Girl, I had a very similar situation happen to me. We had immediate family pictures done but I was not in my husbands family pic and he wasn’t in mine. We have one group one of both of our families but somehow along the way us getting into each other’s family pics didnt happen. <br /><br />I beat myself up over this for months and months. Our wedding was July 27, 2013 (one year tomorrow!) I will say that it’s best to think about all of the things that went right and how much fun you had with your husband that day. After all, that is what it is really about! <br /><br />I will say though, I completely understand where you’re coming from and can just say that over time, you will start to not think about it as much and realize that there are more important things in the world than specific pictures from one day of your life. This is really just the beginning of a lifetime of many pictures to come! 🙂 I also keep teling myself that it could be a whole lot worse. I could have no wedding pictures or couldn’t have had a beautiful wedding at all. Focus on the positive. It’ll help you get through it!!

It’s so sad that this happened, but unfortunately it happens a LOT.  Can you look forward to the future and plan a one year wedding anniversary party, give them all plenty of notice that it’s on, and hire a professional photographer for an hour or two at the anniversary party?  Or maybe if they all live fairly locally can you do a trash the dress party, have some nice photos with them first, then trash it?  So sorry you’re feeling these regrets but it wil pass, I promise. I missed some really important ones at my wedding but after a few weeks I stopped thinking about it all the time, and it dulled down.
