We didn’t really *use* them for anything. It was just really nice excuse for us to get pro pictures of us together that aren’t wedding pictures. We’ll probably print out our favorite, and hang it in our house somewhere.

Rehearsal dinner invites, coffee table book, photos for our desks at work, making drink coasters with them, used on our wedding website, had one printed and framed to be used as our guestbook, and I’ll probably find more uses for them as time goes on.

We are going to use them to make a photobook/guestbook – I figure that way I will look at my guestbook later 🙂

We included a photo magnets with our invitations and we’ve received so many compliments on them. MY FI’s grandma told me she took her magnet to church with her to show all of her friends…she’s so cute haha.

We’re also going to have one of our engagement photos in a frame at the reception, and guests will sign the mat (like in the image below). We’ll replace the photo with a wedding photo later.

We’re getting engagement photos done and using one for the STD. The others we’ll give out to family, since they’ve already requested pictures, and we plan on displaying some at the ceremony and reception.

We framed some for our house, gave some to our parents and grandparents, used some at the wedding and some on our wedding website. My SIL used a photo from the session in our program design. We actually did do save the dates, but we didn’t use our photos on them. We bought simple magnets with calla lillies on them.

We will be using our pictures for Save the Dates.  My future sister-in-law actually took our photos (we’re still gonna take a few more with her) to save some money!  She’s really good and is trying to break into the photgraphy business.  She takes photos of us a lot — helps her build her portfolio.  Now to answer your question…

We’re also putting lots of frames with the pictures she’s taken that won’t be on the save the date….they’ll be on the guestbook table/gift table scattered about so everyone can see the pictures!

We used ours to create a photo guest book and we are also using them to create photo lantern centerpieces for the reception.

We used them for Christmas cards. We also made a photo book and printed a few for our parents relatives that asked for them. I framed one for myself and one for our guest book. Of course, I used one or two as Facebook photos as well 😉

We made a photo album guestbook with them and had prints made of our favorites to frame and hang around the house. When my mom saw our album she loved it so much she wanted one for herself, so we made her one too. 🙂 You could also incorporate them into your table numbers.
