We got our pictures taken 8 months before the wedding and FI thought that was kind of late, but I thought it was fine. I’d say have them taken anytime.

  • Wedding: October 2010

We’re having ours next week, and are getting married Oct 2010… a bit early, I guess, but we want to use them for the Save the Dates, so it’ll be helpful to have early.

We got ours done by a friend this last spring… EARLY spring…it was FREEZING!! It was early, and honestly, we didnt really need to do it, but I wanted pics and our photog friend wanted to add to his portfolio.

our couples for next summer are encouraged to do it this fall….early fall – before it’s too chilly! It also beats waiting for real good spring temperatures to kick in and then you’ll have the photos with plenty of time to use them for something if you choose….

Our date is next May and we had them done the week before last.  We want them for save the dates and we also wanted to weather to be a general approximation of how it will be at the wedding (for no particular reason).

I’m the complete opposite of the rest of you – we’re getting married in October (like 2 months from now) and just had our engagement photos taken.  I think it depends on what you want to use them for – we’re using them for our guest book, but lots of people use them for save the dates and such, and for that you’d need to get them done much earlier.  We didn’t do save the dates…

  • Wedding: July 2009

We had ours taken at the end of May (2009), and got married at the end of July (2009).  Pretty late in comparison to many people, but we were very familiar with what to do the day of our wedding after the practice session, and we had plenty of time to order an 8×10 that we used at our reception!
