Nah. If you want nice photos, by all means go ahead and do it.

mg222 :  I don’t see anything wrong with that! You’re still (really new) newlyweds and you’ll be dressed in your wedding clothes.

My husband and I had an extremely private (just us, officiant, and two witnesses) ceremony. We took a few selfies for memories.

But then we got dressed again and had our professional photography done in multiple locations in Hawaii just a few days later. I love that we have those photos, and I still consider them our wedding photos even if they weren’t taken on the exact day.

What if you did a romantic photoshoot at sunset on your first anniversary? Maybe not in your wedding attire but you could still do a romantic beachy white flowy dress…

It’s ultimately up to you. I personally wouldn’t be able to “fool” myself (for lack of a better term, sorry) into loving photos as my wedding photos that are not from my wedding day literally, but that’s just me. I’ve seen people do photos days after in their dress but you can always tell since the hair and makeup are not the same.

chocolateplease :  Just because they’re not taken on THE day of doesn’t mean that they can’t be wedding photos… 

mg222 :  Do your hair. Do your makeup. Wear that dress. Take as many beautiful pics as you want and rock those wedding photos.

“I personally wouldn’t be able to “fool” myself (for lack of a better term, sorry) into loving photos as my wedding photos that are not from my wedding day literally, but that’s just me.”

How is it any different from people who “upgrade” their engagement rings and “fool” themselves into loving a ring that’s not from the proposal day literally?

mg222 :  You’re still newlyweds only one month into marriage. These can still be your “wedding photos” without necessarily being your “wedding ceremony photos.”

slothbear :  that’s not a good analogy. An upgraded engagement ring is an upgrade from the original. But this is getting too nuanced.

I’m not telling her not to do it. She can dig her wedding dress out in 10 yrs and call them “wedding photos.” To ME, as I made very clear in my post, it wouldn’t be the same as having photos from the actual wedding day, and I get the sense that she’s pondering this as well hence the post. 

Like I said, I’ve seen it done, and I’m sure it turned out great. But to ME, I wouldn’t be able to love them as much as if they were my wedding day-of photos.

I’m not here to hotly debate this. OP, it’s your call. I’m sure they will turn out lovely either way.

chocolateplease :  I honestly see no difference in logic with that analogy, and no it’s not nuanced. But yes, I agree that it’s up to OP to put whatever meaning she wants to put to it. And I also think she will love them in years to come.
