Alright bees, advice needed! On November 9th it will be my one year anniversary to my amazing man. I can’t believe how time has flown since it seems like just yesterday we were walking down the Isle to get married. Here is my delima…
As much as i think my wedding was amazing there is still one thing that sticks out that I hate…The photographer did NOT get any pictures of just me and my dad or me and my dad and mom together. ..In fact their was a lot of things my photographer didn’t capture that I was sad about. So I thought this plan up….Why not get back in the dress on our one year anniversary and my family dress back up and we hire a better photographer to capture the pictures we didn’t get? Then after I have booked the same room that me and my hubby stayed at on our honeymoon night. We also will be going to Las Vegas for our anniversary and we will be leaving the same time and from the same place we did on our first day of being married. So it’s sort of like a redo kind of thing…does this sound crazy? I don’t even know what to tell a photographer when I call and ask them to shoot me back in my wedding dress?

I could see this being a good thing to do if your photos were entirely ruined [like you never got your photos, or your photographer really sucked], but it sounds like you were just missing a few pictures that you had wanted, in which case, this happens to many brides.
I would just do a fancy portrait with everyone you want, no reason to get back into your dress for a few formal photos.

Missbigdreamer: if these pictures in your dress are super important to you, go for it! Be prepared for some side eyeing though, as it can seem a bit self involved like you are dragging out the one day thing. But if you want pictures with your family and they are amenable to getting dressed up again and posing/ pretending it’s the wedding day, why not.
not sure you should blame the photog for this, though, because the family portraits should have been scheduled. It’s hard to understand how you didn’t know this was missing in the day Unless the photog ruined these pictures somehow.

It seems a little odd to me since you can’t recreate your wedding day, as in, no matter what, you would know that those pictures weren’t taken on your wedding day.
However, if you just want pictures of you and your parents in your dress, then I would just go to a photography studio and get those pictures taken. Or you can wait for a milestone anniversary, and have a vow renewal with immediate family members and get a photographer for that since it’ll be more meaningful.
On the other hand, if it bothers you that much, then you should just do it if your husband and family members agree.

I agree with dojx that its sort of odd because the pictures are supposed to reflect the memories of the wedding and the most important factor of the day is you and your husband. I can understand being upset about the pictures but why not just do a nice family portrait or something. If your kids or anyone asked about the photos it would seem strange to explain it.
