I’m planning to give my bridesmaids a photi gift of some sort once we get our wedding photos.
im just not sure what I should do. What would you prefer?
a single photo of me and you
a single photo of me and you and a group shot in one frame
a flush mount mini album (likely 8×8) with a collection of wedding photos – made specifically for the BMs wouldn’t be the same as what we’d get for us
a mini scrapbook handmade by me (probably 8×8)
Just a mini album with some prints
obviosuly these are all different and will cost me varying amounts of money, I just want to make sure they have some photos from the day and a keepsake – or am I nuts and I shouldn’t bother?
(keep in mind 2 girls are my sisters and te other 2 both display pictures of family and friends in tier homes)

I think a mini album would be nice, but NOT just a collection of wedding photos. Not to be mean, but I honestly don’t think anyone but the couple and immediate family really cares that much for items completely centered around someone elses wedding. However, a mini album including pictures throughout your friendship would be nice imo. I was a BM in a wedding and that was actually part of our gifts which I thought was really nice (she did a 8×8 regular shutterfly book). It was great to see pictures and little story of our friendship. In your case if you do it after the wedding, definitely add wedding pics in the end.
ETA: I display pictures of friends and family too, but I wouldn’t display a picture of me and and a friend at HER wedding. I mean, that’s her day. I would much rather display a picture of a fun special memory that was equal to the both of us, if that makes any sense.

I wouldn’t mind having a photo of me and the bride. However, I really think it depends on the person. Some people just aren’t into photos.
This is just my opinion, but I think framing implies that you expect them to display it in their home. Maybe just give them the print in a nice thank you card. Let them decide if they want to frame it.

I wouldn’t feel the need for an entire album of pictures from someone’s wedding. I would like/display a picture of the bride and me though.

I’d rather get chocolate, or something else that’s edible. I keep all my photos on Facebook, where they belong, lol.
Seriously though, I don’t really like receiving photos as gifts because then I feel obligated to display it somewhere in the house.
