My favorite photo from our STD shoot turns out to be one of us kissing. I’m torn. The safe side of me doesn’t want to offend any hyper-conservative family members. (Oh, and there are many.) And how could you regret keeping it classy, right?
The other half of me wants to scream…WHO THE HECK IS OFFENDED BY KISSING?! This is 2013 and we live in America! Does anyone really think we dated this long and haven’t locked lips? Besides, who wants to at their euology to be known as “the girl who played it safe?”
What are the Bee’s thoughts?

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a tasteful kissing photo, however I prefer the second one because it shows both your pretty faces and seems more inviting!

@sarahdearest: I think they both look great! and the kissing photo is definitely tasteful. I wouldn’t worry about it!

I agree! They’re both super cute, and while I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a kissing picture, I think I like the second one more because you can see your faces 🙂

Uhh, even for the most conservative people, getting married = sex, so why is a kiss so bad? It isn’t like a steamy snog, it is just a kiss.

I don’t think there is anything wrong with the kiss, but I think the second photo is better and feels happier! Your family may not have seen you recently (and may not have met your FI) a picture of the two of you smiling is a nice picture to send out, one that they can hang on the fridge or in their house if they choose to.

i agree with pp’s – the second photo is much more welcoming – it’s like you’re actually saying hello to your guests! the kissing photo is cute, but can you put it on a wedding website or something? you just can’t see your faces – it could be anyone’s kissing photo.

Super cute pictures! I’d be thrilled to receive either one.
I posted a similar conundrum (mom couldn’t deal with it) and was surprised by how many posters thought kissing was yucky. There definitely is a diversity of opinion! Here’s the thread.

I prefer the second one with you both smiling. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the kissing one, but if there are people out there who would find that type of thing off-putting, better to use the safe one.

(Make this a poll)
also–you are totally right with wondering who the heck would be bothered by kissing! Seems so silly! They are both really awesome pictures, but I agree with pp’s that the second option is so much more welcoming and showcases you as a couple!!! I can see how it would be hard to choose!!

It’s not too bad – I don’t like the ones that are just huge faces kissing, but you guys are pretty small in that picture and the background is cool.
Is there a giant creature looking at me from inside the heart, though?!?

I agree with a lot of people on here, the kissing picture is okay but the second picture makes a cuter save the date.

Like others, I like the second picture just because I can see you.
Honestly, the first picture is a bit busy… I had to “find” you. For that fact alone, I’d go with the second picture.

@sarahdearest: I agree with the others – the second picture wins my vote!
