"it still doesnt get light enough but the wedding dress is too exposed"
The age-old problem of wedding photography - the groom's in black, the bride's in white. If it's taken in direct sunlight you will get a huge contrast.... which can only be avoided by careful use of flash or taking the couple aside and into the shade. I'm assuming that the camera's meter, unaltered, has seen a generally dark shot so has given a little more exposure.... but that blows out the dress. You may be able to rescue the shots with Donoreo's advice, above, but I dare say 'something has to give'... either a blown out dress or a very dark picture.
Ah well, that's why professional wedding photographers charge big money.... it's not as easy as it looks. I think you said last week that you'd been invited to take "the" wedding pics.... certainly not something I'd do without a lot of planning, some experience, and a few bobs' worth of kit.
