With so many couples still not realising the value of an engagement shoot, we’ve created a comprehensive list of ways you can use your engagement photos before, during and following your wedding day. Not to mention, you can use your engagement shoot as a trial run for your actual wedding day photos. Getting your practice in will make you a pro in no time.
#1 Bridal Shower
Shower your bridal shower with pictures from your engagement photo shoot. This is such a nice added touch that your guests will love.
#2 Hen Party
Incorporate them into your hen party by attaching them to the end of helium filled balloons for your bride tribe to discover. They will love this added touch.
#3 Slideshow Video
You could also create a slideshow to share with your nearest and dearest.
#4 Save The Dates
This is a great way to create a personal save the date cards announcing your upcoming wedding!
#5 Wedding Invitations
Why, don’t stop there! You can even add them to your wedding invitations for that added personal touch that everyone loves.
#6 Thank You Cards
Including your engagement photos on your thank you cards just makes it all worthwhile for your guests when they see just how happy you are.
#7 Photo Stamps
Personalised photo stamps are the perfect way to subtly include your engagement photos into any correspondence such as the save the dates, invitations and thank you cards.
#8 Wedding Website
This is an absolute must! Include them into your wedding website so that everyone can see how happy you make each other. Giving them a bit of insight into who you are will make them just as excited as you are for you to get married.
#9 Wedding Favours
You can frame them and hand them out as little wedding favours or better yet, you can print photo stickers and stick them to miniature bottles of prosecco!
#10 Wedding Decorations
Print your engagement pictures and hand them on string with little pegs and use it in place of bunting.
This is ultimately our favourite use for engagement snaps! Incorporate the images into your guestbook to add a dash of individuality to the signing of the wedding book.
When the wedding is done and dusted, send postcards with your engagement images on them to your friends and family to let them know you are thinking of them and that you are grateful for all they’ve done.
#13 Social Media
And when all the festivities are over, you can share them with the rest of the world.
#14 Fridge Magnets
Turn them into fridge magnets so you can remember that exciting time in your lives for many more years to come.
