I don’t think its worth it, and I won’t be doing them. I know in the South, it’s a big thing. I just think it’s a waste of money, since you’ll have a photographer at your wedding taking pictures of you then anyway.

I’m having bridal portraits because I’m going to be wearing the most beautiful garment of my life and I want pictures of it.  I’m not going to hang them around the house or anything, but I will show them to my future daughter.  And sure, I’ll look at them from time to time and think “damn, I looked good.”  I do not plan on doing an after-wedding photo shoot because I think its odd to wear a wedding dress when you’re not a bride anymore (just my personal opinion).

If its not a priority for you, I think you should definitely exchange it for more hours of wedding photography!

It’s part of my package, too, and I honestly can’t wait. I agree it’s a tad awkward to think about, but I will never do something like this again in my life. It’s also a cultural thing, I suppose. I am from the South and my entire family has done them. I like that I will have my Grandma’s, Mom’s, and mine.
