Hmmm. I think those photos are great, but they really do look like something out of a magazine which you would not display in your home... I don't think that those gowns look completely ruined either though. There was a bride on the WC who had a post-wedding photo shoot done in NO when a photographer came to town for a canceled wedding (she couldn't refund the airline tickets). Her dress was filthy, and after sending it to the cleaners it came out like new!
Looks like fun, but I wouldn't do it. My dress wouldn't fit at all either as I am smaller than I was when I got married.
