Never heard of it and I’m sure some of the Debby downers will poopoo it, but if you want too, then do it. Lots of people get pictures after the wedding so why not? I think it’s an even cuter idea to get them on your one year anniversary.

It’s not a tradition, but some people do it and have fun. I have also kept my dress and hopefully I’ll be able to wear it for pictures in some anniversaries (not in first though – I’ll be 7 months pregnant then ๐Ÿ˜€

I have a friend who did that – wearing her dress on their 1st anniversary – but they didn’t have a photo shoot. They just took a selfie. I think it could be fun, but probably not something I’ll do – we plan to have my dress cleaned and preserved for future generations who may want to use it.

Mine is all boxed up and preserved, so I don’t know if I’d want to take it out and then not be able to get it back in the box again.

I’ve heard of it before! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a tradition, but not one that is observed very much anymore. Kind of like saving a piece of your cake in the freezer and keeping it until your one year anniversary.

I don’t think I would have even fit into mine, one year afterwards. Grrr…

I’ve never heard of the tradition of wearing your dress again… but I love it! You pay so much for the dress and never wear it again, any chance to give it more use is fine by me!

I’ve definitely heard of one year later photoshoots (and by heard of I mean seen pics on Pinterest!) My fiancee and I plan to have one (although not in our wedding attire). 

I think having a shoot and wearing your dress is a great idea! It’s a way to relive the wedding and remind yourselves of what it represents. Plus it’ll be loads of fun! If you have the wedding somewhere close to you, you could even do the photoshoot at the same place, that would be cool.

Never heard of anyone doing this. It sounds pretty weird/pointless to me, but whatever floats your boat!

katjep:  I had been planning on doing this, but I’m pregnant and will be in my 9th month on our anniversary, so that dress won’t zip!

It’s not a tradition but a lot of people pretend it is so they can get all dressed up again.

never heard of it but, I saw a couple do something like that idk if it was their one year but, On the day I got enagaged in Virgina Beach there was a couple who stood in line behind us for the ferris wheel in her wedding dress and him a suit with their photogrpaher and they were re doing the day they got engaged and some favorite places and getting pictures …. Now looking back this is even more ironic and cute since about 6 hours later I said yes to my finace unexpectedlly ๐Ÿ™‚  so i really think that is a cute idea if you had something to take pictures at/ of from your enegament day
