As we all know the wedding goes by in such a blur. Mine was only 3 weeks ago but I’m having a hard time remembering all of the moments in the day. We still haven’t received our professional pictures yet, but in the previews provided by our photographer & some that guests have shared, I look VERY tired. Not the wedding glow I thought I had 🙁 I’m probably just over-thinking it, but I am very concerned that all the pictures will have me looking this way (at no fault to our photog…she was GREAT!). I was EXHAUSTED the entire day…woke up at 5:30am (didn’t have to get up until 8am) on less than 6 hours of sleep with puffy eyes & the tiredness just increased from there. So my question, Hive…do you think it’s crazy to want wedding portraits done AFTER the wedding? Re-do hair + makeup, put the dress back on & go to a great spot for some bridal pics! Am I crazy?!

@steph99ucfkd: I know some Bees have done that, but wait until you get your entire set of photos back before you decide! There could be some great gems in there!!

I think you should go for it!!! If you weren’t happy with how you looked on the day definitely go get ones you do like, you’ll probably be really happy you did in 50 years!!!

I would wait until you see all your photos.
You can always do another photo shoot later.

Where I’m from, everyone does bridal portraits before the wedding. It’s just the bride though, but it does cut down on the need to detail shoot the dress on the day.
I’m doing mine in June, I’m pretty excited! I say go for it!

I really like the idea of getting bridal portraits done before the wedding! Seems like it would be a lot less stress!
