Engagement Pics– Great Ways to Use!

Now that we have taken our engagement pictures, I have become obsessed with using them! Here are some great ideas from fellow knotties.

  • STDs

Save the Dates are probably one of the more popular ways to use your engagement photos. Here’s a sample of a picture that really fits with the layout of the postcard.

  • Holiday Cards

I’ve never been a fan of photo holiday cards. My main problem with them is that there is no way to prop them up on my mantle. Yet now I have my engagement photos, I want to send them out!!

  • Wedding Website

The home page of our wedding website is more of a visual treat than informative. I use the page to showcase photos of us. I’ve been changing the photos on a regular basis.

  • Stamps

Photo stamps are not cheap…but they certainly make your invitation stand out from the crowd! I’ve also seen them used on thank you cards.

  • Newspaper Announcement

Although I am not close with my Mother, her one request is for us to announce our engagements in the paper. Four of ’em. I agreed…but that was before I knew how much it cost!

  • Cardbox

In some parts of the country as well as certain ethnicities, cash gifts are given. When this is the case, a cardbox is a must. Instead of using a generic white box from Michael’s, why not DIY and use your e-pics?

  • Guest Book

Our package comes with a 6 page guest book. Our guests can sign around the pictures. Other knotties have made a book at Shutterfly, Snapfish, or My Publisher.

  • CDs

The cover of a CD– which can be used as a favor or OOT gift bag stufffer– can include a picture from your engagement photo.

  • Rehearsal Dinner Invitations or Shower Invitations

In the past, I saw a knottie that used an engagement photo for their rehearsal dinner invitation. It was really cute!

  • Photofetti

Photofetti can be used to dress up high-boys that are used during the cocktail hour. They can also be used on the various special tables: gift table, guest book table, etc.

  • Table Numbers

Table numbers that have engagement photos in the background are super popular on theknot.

  • Slideshow

A slideshow can be done before the ceremony, during the cocktail hour, or during dinner. It’s a great way to showcase many photos.

  • Photo Coasters

Photo coasters are one of the most popular favors for a shower, rehearsal dinner, or even the wedding. Simply print your picture on a color printer and insert into the frames.

  • Program

Your wedding program is a great place to add a picture of you and your FI!

  • Centerpieces at the Bridal Shower
  • Guestbook Frame aka Signature Mat

The signature mat, made popular by Pottery Barn, is widely available and has become very popular in the past few years. It’s a wonderful way to display your engagement pictures!

  • Framed Pictures at the Placecard Table
  • Calender– Countdown to your wedding
  • Christmas Ornaments
  • In your Home!
