I can’t find anything online about this surprisingly so I’m going to ask. Aside feom making photo invites (which I don’t want to do) what are some ideas for including a photo with the invitations? Do people just put a normal 4×6 in there or did you come up with something unique?

nestle: I don’t think people “do” that… at least not normally. Can I ask why you want to include a photo?

My assumption was that you were supposed to include one? Do people not usually do that?

I’ve never seen it done. I wouldn’t consider it unique if I saw a photo in with the invitation – I’d just question why you thought including it was a good idea. Instead, create a wedding website and include that info on your information card. You can post photos there. Another option is sending photo STD’s.

I have never seen this and would find it quite odd.

We didn’t have our engagement photos before the STDs went out, so they were just little postcards. I got a little holiday card with one of our engagement photos on it after they came in. They’re Thanksgiving photo cards. I’m pretty excited!

I have seen invites with the couple’s photo on them. (I used one of these myself.) But I’ve never heard or seen anyone sending a 4 x6 with their invitation. That seems odd to me. If you want to include a photo, pick an invitation that has one printed on it.

We will be using digital save the dates so we wanted to include a photo with the invitations to give people something to “put up” on the fridge or wherever. We had a photo printed on the back of the invitation, which would have otherwise just been blank. Personally, I don’t think it’s weird at all! But our invitations weren’t exactly traditional, and I’ve received some criticism about it…In the end, do what makes you happy! If you want to include a separate photo, do it! If you want a separate information card (times, addresses, website info), maybe you could have a photo printed on the back side of it, so that would be doubly useful when your guests stick it up on the fridge!<br /><br />

I have never seen where a photo is included and separate from the invitation. But, I have had friends use a photo as part of their invitation… whether it be a background, or one one side (left or right) and the info is on the other.

Just because other people don’t find it “typical” doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it. Older relatives, especially, would probably be thrilled to get a chance to see your photo. I can’t imagine someone opening up an invitation, finding a photo included and going, “gee, I wish this HADN’T been sent”

I plan on doing these save the dates that include photo stickers for guests to stick onto their calendars. http://somethingturquoise.com/2012/03/30/diy-instagram-save-the-dates/ I’ll have left over stickers too that I will probably use as “envelope seals”.
