I’m not sure I’m understanding your suggestion. Are you basically “photoshopping” them into the photo? I’m not sure that’s the best idea. They obviously weren’t there so whats the point of a fake photo? Could you get dressed up again when you get back home and take family photos?

Why not? If I was your photographer I’d be happy to make that happen for you.

I wouldn’t do it for 50 shots. Haha. Maybe pick the ten most important. Most of the work will be done before hand anyway. Just make sure to let your photographer know.

@jenjenn1804:  You know, I think the intention behind this is great….but if people aren’t there…they aren’t there and wishing or photoshop cannot make it so….

if it were me, and congratulations by the way, Venice is lovely.  Take as many scenic shots as you can…the bridges, restaurants whatever you can and when you get back, if there’s a reception or other party for your family….see what it would cost to have one of the scenic shots blown up for people to take pictures in front of…I would almost make it a little kitschy, with hats and things….like a Wish You Were Here kind of thing, that’s fun and accessible.

My best friend and i did this  at her wedding with a photo of us from 25 years earlier, dressed up as brides.  The professional photog took several photos of us holding the picture, but it did not turn out nice at all.  It also wasted a lot of time. 

I think if you are having a reception back home, you need to embrace your Destination Wedding and celebrate only with the people there.
