Engagement Photos Done, Now What?

Now that your engagement photos are done, what comes next?

Photos are a great way to make your wedding stationery more personal and memorable. Whether you choose to use engagement photos, holiday photos, or just casual shots, incorporating photos into your stationery is a great way to show off your personality as individuals and as a couple.

When it comes to using photos throughout your wedding stationery, there are lots of options available. For example, photo save-the-date cards are becoming increasingly popular for announcing the big day. These are an important part of your wedding planning, and they should be sent out 6-8 months before the wedding date. This is to give guests plenty of time to plan for the big day and make sure that they can attend. Save-the-date cards are typically much less formal than traditional wedding stationery, so couples have a lot of freedom when it comes to designing them.

When designing your save-the-date cards, you may want to include a link to your wedding website so that guests can easily access more detailed information about your big day. Your website should include all pertinent details such as dress code, registry information, and other helpful tips for attending your wedding. By including all this information on your save-the-dates, you can ensure that everyone has enough time to plan ahead and be prepared for what will surely be an unforgettable day!

You can also use photos on invitations for an engagement party or bridal shower. Or if you’re looking for something more subtle, consider adding a photo to thank you cards, programs, or even number cards on the table at the reception. Don't forget to order place cards for the reception to match! To create a cohesive look in your stationary suite, make sure that all design elements match up in terms of color palette and overall aesthetic. With these tips in mind, you can easily create an inviting atmosphere for your guests on your special day.

You can even include your favorite engagement photo on your wedding invitations. You can even find invitations that feature multiple photos if it's just too hard to narrow it down to one. Once you've narrowed down your photo choice, you get to work on the design!
