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.
