We are taking our e-pics next March (the wedding is in May), but we do not plan to send them with the invitations. We might feature some of them at the wedding – something like a frame on the guestbook table – maybe that is something you could do too?

I don’t think it is weird at all to take engagement pictures just to have them for yourself. I’m in the same boat in that we don’t usually take very many pictures of us together, so I want to have some quality professional ones.

You could buy a fake ring. Sterling silver with a fake stone of whatever your real ring will look like! So you will have a ring on in the pictures. The ring I am wearing in our engagement pictures is not the same ring I have now. I’m already married & my husband upgraded it because my old one was two tone silver & yellow gold with a cluster of diamonds. It was tarnishing.

So my white gold e-ring is completely different & a solitaire. It doesn’t bother me at all!

If you really want them to go with your invitations, I would just buy a “stand in” ring.. For me, when we took our engagement pictures, we didn’t even take a close up of my ring or anything, so just to have a stand in one, you’d be able to tell from a distance that I had a ring there, but wouldn’t be able to tell if it was the “real” one or not..

I wouldn’t worry about it, most E pics don’t even showcase the ring.  Just use a tight headshot.
