I was just curious, I am having two dresses. A more formal one with a train and the whole deal for the ceremony and cocktail hour, and then we are having a small reception at a restaurant so I want to change into something a little more comfortable. I am in love with both of my dresses, though, and the complete opposite styles of them both. So my question is, did you take posed pictures in both dresses? Or is it typically just the posed pictures in the ceremony dress and more candid type shots for the reception dress?
If you do a few quickie posed pictures in the reception dress, when? Should I squeeze it in right before the dinner? I’m just unsure as to what to ask of my photographer, who I haven’t actually hired yet 🙂

If you have the time and the vendor there I don’t see why not.

It really is all about the time factor. I had a wonderful plan to have all of my important pics taken before the ceremony so that Darling Husband and I could attend the hors d’oeuvres hour and mingle with our guests. However, that didn’t happen. We ended up not only missing the entire hors d’oeuvres hour but also most of our reception having pics taken, so I would never have had time to take formal pics in two different dresses. As it was, I don’t have a single pic of just Darling Husband and and me with his children, and I don’t have a single pic of myself surrounded by all of my bridesmaids. We also never had time to even greet the vast majority of our guests, and the only dances we danced were our first and last and the one with our respective opposite-sex parent. I never even had a single moment to speak to my own mother at my wedding. Your timeline may be much more forgiving than mine was. However, you may, like me, be absolutely blindsided by how little time you have that day/night.

If you have time for it maybe you could do a quick shoot of you changing dresses like the preparation shoot for your ceremony dress. Then do a cute posed pic in a doorway then a hallway and they can photograph you walking to the reception with your husband? Then it’s more like chronicling your dress change than taking formal posed shots. Might save you time.
