    We aren’t doing getting ready pics for either of us, because neither of us is that interested in them and we can use the photographer time for pictures we care about more.

    Sheesh!  Tell him to stop trying to be so macho and make a concession to make you happy… remember, “a happy wife equals a happy life!”  I’m so sorry he’s being difficult.  Sometimes they just don’t get it, do they!

    My Darling Husband didn’t care to and so we didn’t. Not a big deal.

    Didn’t vote because I don’t think mine cares either way. If they get taken, great. If they don’t, still great. I know it’s important to you, but like I said in your other post it may be that he doesn’t want every second of the day captured on film. And really, in the grand scheme of things, is it going to matter that you don’t have photos of him fussing with a tie or slipping on his jacket?

    Sounds like your SO is not very into the wedding, which I know can be VERY frustrating. You gotta learn to pick your battles and learn when to just let go and accept that he’s not going to be as interested as you are. I’m sure there are a lot of things that he’s obsessed with which you don’t care too much about, so try to remember that the main point of the wedding is getting married and making your commitment to one another. The rest is just the icing on the cake 🙂

    We didn’t do pics of Darling Husband getting ready, just the ladies.  The timing just didn’t work out with our getting ready locals.  I really don’t care that we don’t have them.  The photogs did get a few shots of the groomsmen having a scotch at the bar right before our first look photos and those will have to do.

    Darling Husband was whatever about it too and I was not offended in the least.

    Are you projecting your anger over him not caring about the other things too onto this one small thing?

    Dh didn’t want them taken, so we didnt. I really wanted them but didn’t make a difference when I was looking at photos. We ended up just taking before the wedding photos with his men.

    I don’t care about getting read pics either to be honest.  I hadn’t even heard of that until coming to this website.  I might ask one of my bridesmaids to take some because I’m leaving myself the option to care.  That certainly has been true of lots of details of the wedding the more I’ve been planning!

    Neither of us did. He didn’t have any – I had some – and didn’t really care about them (even though they take up a spread in our album).

    I think there’s a zillion wedding things that men don’t care about like we do, it’s just bound to happen.  Don’t force him into anything and respect his wishes if he doesn’t wan’t pictures.

    I would let it go.  You’ve had SO MUCH drama already with your dress. .  .your BIL’s Girlfriend wearing a lace dress to your wedding. your date changes, etc. . .   No need to worry about this particular set of photos.

    Darling Husband didn’t care about or understand alot of these kinds of things.  I even didn’t care about the getting ready pics so much myself. Like i would not have really been disappointed if i didn’t get them.  And i only did get them because my photographer was staying at the same resort as me and she said she would come by the spa when i was getting my hair and makeup done and then meet me back at my room later. If she wasn’t already there, i would not have paid her more to have more hours for this.
