Is this a stupid idea?

I don’t see why not! You could find a gorgeous venue and I’m sure the photography/makeup/hair would be significantly cheaper seeing as it would only be for a shoot and not an entire wedding day.

Imo you can’t get your wedding day back. Putting a dress on and getting new photos won’t erase the pain you felt. I think doing a nice family photo shoot is a lovely idea, but I wouldn’t try to recreate wedding photos. I’d probably pick out a brand new dress.

I had some post wedding photos that I love! Go for them!

I didnt wear my veil or my wedding shoes/accessories or the crinoline/underskirr that made my dress more puffy and my DH didn’t wore a suir, but a shirt and pants.

I love those can check them on my older posts!

Not a ridiculous idea in my book at all, unless finances would be an issue. All the best!

I’d have no issue with reshooting some of the formal shots with just the two of you. Adding the baby and putting your older child in the same outfit seems a lot more like reinventing history, though. If you want some family photos with the kids I’d do a wardrobe change.

Not ridiculous at all. Wedding dresses are expensive, so the more use you can get out of it, the better.

I think a lot of people do this. You’re not trying to redo your wedding, you just want nice photos.

cherryade :  oh girl, you need to book this photoshoot now!! wedding dresses are not cheap and you need to have some pictures in it that you LOVE! Ignore all the haters and include the kids in a couple of pictures, but not all of them. These pictures will be so special to them when they grow up, and so special to you once you have your dream wedding(dress) pictures! I can’t wait til after my wedding when I can do fun photoshoots with my photographer bff.
