In my last post I outlined some helpful tips for planning and scheduling your engagement shoot. Today I’d like to share some ideas for fun ways to use your engagement photos.
I have these awesome images – now what do I do with them?
The most popular use of the engagement images are for your wedding invitations or save the date cards. Though there are some other very creative and trendy ways to showcase this celebration:
E-vite slideshow This is a new trendy take on an eco-friendly way to get the word out! Very creative as well. Check this out for an e-vite example.
Save the Date magnets. It’s always on their fridge so they won’t forget!
Decoration for Reception. Hanging on the walls, or smaller prints for the tabletop.
Guestbook. Throw in some pens and you have a very sentimental souvenir from your wedding reception!
Framed image with autograph room… I think there’s a more definitive term for that one.
Reception slideshow. Very affordable and innovative way to take this showcase to the next level.
Newspaper clipping. Now you have something current to submit.
Photo Album. This is timeless, there’s nothing like having a physical compilation.Photo credit: Love N Joy Photography
Canvases/prints around your abode. This is classic and should be seriously considered as part of your “nesting” decor.
You should consider the engagement shoot as an integral part of your entire wedding experience. This is where your commitment starts, the “I do’s” just seal the deal, don’t miss the opportunity to highlight the beginning of your journey together. You already said yes! Now that’s something to celebrate.
