@robsgirl1:  I don’t think it’s silly at all.  I’d suggest getting a different photographer to hopefully avoid the problems you had with the other photog.  If you want to and it’s just you two, I don’t see the harm.  It’s not like you’re asking your wedding party to get dressed up again.  Good luck!

Do it. Ladies I know who have been married 15-20 years all tell me their one regret was not getting enough photos early on in their relationship around the time of their wedding. So, do it!

I think it’s a good idea, it’s like bridal portraits just taken after

I would definitely do that! It is still special because it will be a picture of you with your new husband and wearing your beautiful wedding dress! Some people do shoots with the dress the day after the wedding, so i don’t see how this is any different.

Go for it! And, of course, I would love to see pics when you do 😀

definitely do it, me and hubby didnt have enough photos together not even one together alone in the church, it felt something was amiss; so I found a  photographer in NYC here on weddingbee for free we did another round doing the dip in Times square where we met, on a horse carriage ride, getting shots at our venue and in the hotel room we had the same night of our weddng, me flagging a cab, some with a group  of military, him lifting me up in th  air, few shots around the city and the park, and lake in the park; I had a lot more favorite shots than our duo-pics at the wedding.

Plus, you get a lot of cheering and congratulations and people get you free drinks afterwardsWink

@robsgirl1:  Definitely. I know it’s not the same thing that he wore on the actual day, but to me it wouldn’t matter. He will look smart and you will look gorgeous again either way. My Fi refuses to wear any kind of typical wedding attire *sigh*, which leaves just a normal suit as the only option.

I personally think your idea is pretty exciting! To get to wear the dress another day is surely a good thing, as well as to get the photos you really wanted.

I think it is a great idea and you should definitely do it!  I did it too!  Well sort of.  I was really upset because my moh did not strap my internal bra straps and waist strap in the back of my gown so I asked my photographer to do some more photos of me in my dress at the same location.  I had my hair and makeup done the same way as my wed day.  I wanted my Darling Husband to join me but he refused.  It all worked out though because the photographer got to take some really cool pics and now I feel much better.  I only told one friend and you guys.  I felt really silly at first but it was a lot of fun and I am really happy I did it.  The photographer said that she has done retakes befores for couples who had rainy wedding days and she does a lot of trash the dress shoots.  Eventhough it is not the actual wedding day it will still be special to you and your hubby.  If you don’t do it you might always regret it. I would agree that you should prob hire a new photographer though.

@robsgirl1  I am so sorry that you were disappointed by your pictures, but alot of us in one way or the other are  disappointed too. At our wedding me and Darling Husband got really amazing shots together, but I am really disappointed with the shots I have of the back of my dress and by myself. I have 2 that i really like but thats it… So I decided that I am going to put the dress back on tmoro do my hair makeup and go to a park and have a friend take pics of me.. At first, like you, I felt really silly. But like MabelleBliss  said, its like doing bridal portriats but just taken after, so that should make us feel better.. Plus how awesome is it to put our dress back on again 🙂  So with that said, you should 100% take more photos with your huddy, if you dont You will most likely regret it, So go for it!!

Go for it.. I have a friend that re-did her pictures because she was pregnant during her wedding, they turned out great!!  You need to have wonderful photos to look back on, regardless of whether or not it was the same day. Go for it!

We pre-planned a day-after photo shoot with our photographer because we wanted to spend less time taking photos on our wedding day and more time with our family and friends. We loved our day-after shoot. It was so much fun. We could take our time, relax, have fun, and get some really honest shots that reflect how Mr. LK and I really behave. LOL
