I wouldnt think it was worth the money but its totally up to you if its bothering you that much.  The wedding pictures reflect the memories of the wedding day so I dont understand what you are getting from having fake pictures taken. If you do it though I think you should atleast offer to pay for their hair and makeup since its something your requesting and not required.

It wouldn’t have the same meaning to me. Maybe someday you can do a vow renewal and get your pictures then.

I would go with makes you happy, it is your decision I would do it if I wanted to. Don’t let something niggle away at you for yrs if you want to do it and it makes you happy do it, you don’t have to totally recreate it  just make it a fun photoshoot and have a great girly day after, lots of fun xxx

That being said, I just think focusing on missing out on some getting ready photos isn’t the end of the world and I’d try not to focus on it. If you’d told me that it poured rain and you got no photos with your husband, I’d say by all means get dressed and go back out. Some photos with your bridesmaids? Not so much.

socalgirl1689:  Okay, in my opinion the way you are going about it doesn’t really sound like it’s worth the money. If you want them back in their dresses, fine. But hair and makeup? Bouquets? Is this really all necessary? Why not have them come in just their dresses and do the shoot instead? That way it’s really not that much effort/work.
