I had no idea how hard it would be! If I hadnt grabbed some of the pics off of FB, I would not have had at least 5 of them. One of my BM’s didnt even respond to my request. So I just went to her profile page and picked the best pic I could find.
Ive asked the Best Man at least 4 times for a pic. He says he keeps on forgetting! sigh
I have learned through the process of planning this wedding. People are very unreliable. This is why Im doing most of my planning and tasks by myself. My own wedding party cant send me a simple pic.
Oh well. Things could be worse, its just annoying. Did you have any difficulties??

@Earlybride: I had the same problems. One of my bridesmaids emailed me a picture, my hostess and the best man. Everyone else no email with pictures. So I stole from FB, if they don’t like the picture only person to blame are themselves.

@DestinBride85: Thats what Im thinking too. If he doesnt send it to me by Sunday, Im going to put one up from FB. Its one with him on his Harley. Its not a bad pic, but I gave him a choice. He did say he will give me the pic by the end of this week. And that is tomorrow. If I dont get it by Sunday, Im putting the other pic up until he gives me the one that he likes better.
I know people are busy. But Ive been waiting for a couple months now!

Haha… I never even asked ours for photos… I just used photos I already had! I take a lot of pictures, so it wasn’t really an issue. I guarantee though… had I tried to get our groomsmen to email me a photo, I would’ve NEVER finished our wedding website!!

I would just use one from facebook.
I wish I would have not done a wedding website, its turned out to be a waste of time becuase nobody has gone to it. :/

I straight up stole pictures of our Bridesmaid or Best Man and Maid/Matron of Honor off of Facebook. No shame! 😉

@Captain013: What????? Thats the first time someone has said no one they knew went to it!!!! Are u sure there wasnt a malfunction or something??
Ive already had people ask me what our website address is, though Im not telling them. Told them its on the STD’s. They can wait. 🙂
Good idea. I will put the pic up now. If I dont get it from him, I just dont care anymore. sigh Ironically I thought that this guy was going to be the responsible one of the group!

Honestly maybe one or two people have looked at it. We sent it out with our save the dates, and really nothing that we’ve included on the website wont be in the invitation.
But don’t stress over not getting things from people, you’ll just waste your breath.
Good luck ! 🙂
