Hi bees, we’re thinking of ordering these as favours. Do you think people will like them? We’re trying to avoid having something people will just leave behind. Do you think people would put them on their fridge if we glued a magnet on the back? Thanks for your input!
Hmm I tried to comment on this before and it didn’t work. I love this idea, I think you should go for it.
I think they are adorable! But I’m thinking people would just keep the pic not the paper frame. But then again, no one keeps the wrapping to a favor, right? And the pics themselves would serve as momentos so I’m thinking you could get away with not having them but they would be an extra cute addition to have.
We’re running photobooth too. We purchased acrylic 4″x6″ frames from Dollarama. These are T-shaped ones that can hold photos back-to-back. Only $1.25 each and surprisingly sturdy/good quality.
We are putting one on each table setting. We’re printing inserts for them. One side showing the itinerary for the dinner reception. The other side thanking them for coming and I came up with this poem:
We have a photbooth ’till half past twelve
So take many photos of your wacky li’l selves
For our scrapbook, your souvenirs, our mem’ries, your fun
And use this picture frame to display the best one!
We figure if we give them a generic (read: no fuss) picture frame, our male and female guests are more likely to take them home to display (at home or in their office or wherever).
We picked the 4″x6″ size for photos. If you want 2″x6″, there are acrylic frames for those as well (online). Fridge magnet is not a bad idea. I’m just sharing what we’re doing as an alternative.
Thanks ladies! We’re haing a hard time coming up with favour ideas so I think this might just work. Initially we’d planned on making little s’more kits (pack of hot chocolate, 2 graham crackers, chocolate and a marshmallow) since we’re doing an outdoors/beachy wedding but my fiancé doesn’t think it’s a good idea since people can’t roast the marshmallows. So what do you think, these or s’more kits? We’re having the photo booth either way
I’d put them on my fridge if they had a magnet!
@Minimae- thanks for the suggestion about the acrylic photo frames, we’re thinking about those too. I guess people would be more likely to keep them than a paper frame. It’s just that these paper ones are so cute! Love your poem though… Might have to do something like that.
I love it!!!
I love it great idea!!
Love these! Are you making them yourself or did you find them online somewhere? I want to steal the idea, too! 🙂
I got something similar at a wedding and it has a place of honor on my fridge! No magnets, so I used one of my own. I think it’s a great idea…who doesn’t love a good photobooth picture?
We got an actual photobooth and when they take a picture they keep one strip and we get a copy. The company says they have sleeves to put the guests pictures in and ours goes into a scrapbook. I was worried if people thought using their pictures were cheap but in all honesty, my entire side of my refridge is covered with photobooth pics. I just need a lovely poem (like the one posted) to tell guests that is their gift. 🙂 I feel a bit better about it now, thank you.
