Does anyone remember their beloved View-Master toy as a child? This classic toy is making a comeback! These fun View-Masters are making their way into the wedding world. Many couples are incorporating the classic toy into their own weddings as fun detail … and a way to customize!
If you are not sure what a View-Master is, it shows stereo images (3-D photos) through the toy … and brides and grooms are using them in all stages of their wedding. From their engagement photos to their invitations, couples are incorporating this well known classic into some super fun wedding details. You could give out personalized View-Masters as wedding favors … Think about handing out custom made View-Masters full of sentimental photos of the happy couple. Great idea!
The image below is from a couple that used View-Masters for their Save the Dates. The couple had reels made that included 3d photos of themselves, other vintage toys and their wedding location and date. Each of their wedding quests received a package in the mail which included a View-Master and the Save the Date reel. What a great way to inform your guests about your wedding!

I couldn’t resist sharing this last detail with you! The photo shown below displays the genius idea of incorporating ViewMaster style photos into a wedding ring! Luke Jerram made this ring for his wife. Isn’t this just the best? I don’t think a ring could be more personalized! You can read more about the ring here. He also created a “Talking Ring” as an engagement ring. The ring has a 20 second message (his proposal) etched onto it’s surface and can be played back with a miniature record player.

Happy Planning :)
