Can you find somewhere inside to take the pics?

I’m in the same situation as you. Winter wedding and BM breastfeeding, but I believe she’s pumping for the wedding. We’re doing most of our pictures inside, then just a couple outside of the church.

I feel like you would miss them if you skipped them. Plus, people are going to work hard to look goodm might as well get a picture of it, even if you only print off one… which is likely, it’ll be worth it.

sunflower22:  I would not like it if we had chosen not to do pics with our wedding party. I also feel it would have been disrespectful to ask them to spend money to come to our wedding, get their outfits, stand up for us and then find out that we didn’t value their participation enough to take a few pics.

It needn’t be an endurance event. You can take a few pics of the bridal party and the bride, and the groomsmen and the groom before the wedding, then take a few of the whole wedding party after the ceremony.

Just do the pictures in the church. We had a bunch in there and they were great. My BM also pumped for the wedding, she was with us from 10am – reception at 6. I do love the pictures with my girls and DH with his guys. They live far apart so it was awesome having pics with all of them.

sunflower22:  To me, the bridal party photos weren’t the most important. The most important (and the only one on display in our house) is me and DH. Next most important is family photos. The bridal party photos are ok but they’re just one part of the album.

By all means do a few, but they don’t need to take a huge amount of time.

I would have missed having them. You definitely don’t need 3 hours to do pictures with the BP. We did most of our pictures with our BP in under an hour. We could easily have done it in less time if we weren’t walking around in a park.

We had a photojournalist photographer who does very limited posed photos, I have a few posed of myself and the bridesmaids but there is none of the total bridal party together. But there are lots of each of the bridal party and I can tell you stories and see real emotions in those photos which to me was more important then a bunch of posed photos with fake smiles! It all depends what you are looking for when you receive your photos if you will miss the posed wedding party photos!
