@robsgirl1: Sure you may think that but your choice is to A) have only pictures that you hate of your wedding day and nothing else or b) have a chance to get some more beautiful shots of you and your husband.   You will not never get your wedding day back so why not make the best of it and take the oppertunity to get some more beautiful photos.

Do it! I was planning on doing a shoot of the two of us later, but we ended up getting more shots of us than we thought we’d have time for.

Because I didn’t end up having any pics of myself without my veil, I also wanted to have more photos taken after my wedding. However, my DH definitely did not want to rent a tux again, and, honestly, the logistics of trying to bring that idea to fruition given 1) both of our crazy, busy schedules, 2) the fact that DH lived three hours from our venue (and I lived 1.5 hours away at that point), 3) the need to schedule myself for hair and make up all over again, 4) the need to be able to schedule the photographer on the same day as the hair and make up artist, and 5) the ability to do all of that on a day when our venue was available just seemed utterly overwhelming. Also, my DH really thought it was totally unecessary, and he was not at all in favor of our even trying to do it. Besides that, our venue would have charged us a fee (about $500, I think) for the right to use the grounds for a photo shoot. 

Eventually, I instead decided to just have a formal bridal portrait of myself taken without the veil in the studio of the photographer who had taken our formal engagement portraits.  This turned out to be a great solution for me, and I loved seeing DH’s face when he saw me looking like I did the day we were married.

If your DH will do it, and you are able to make it happen logistically, I think you should do it!
