    Pst…your poll only lets us choose one option! So we can only pick a picture or date…not both!

    I love 1 and 4 they are so cute. You should definitely hang the one with your puppy up in your place. Such a cute family picture Smile. I think 3 months before the wedding is a good time

    Gorgeous pictures!! It was hard to pick just one. 3 is my fav but number 4 is a very close runner up!!

    @MrsN14:  I voted #2 and 0-3 months before. I would suggest (if you’re having trouble picking) that you look at engagement/wedding announcements in your newspaper. You can get a good idea of what poses work well for that type of announcement and you can see when people usually announce it in the paper (the announcement includes the wedding date, so it can give you a rough estimate).

    @MrsN14:  3 & 4 are summery. 1 is pretty but its fallish and assuming it will not be posted next fall, after your wedding- I think your summer looking options are the best! All are very pretty! I think 3 or 4 would be perfect (Im more partial towards 3 because of the adorable dog Laughing)

    I was going to vote for number 3 solely because of the doggy :p but the fourth looks better! Hmm maybe PhotoShop that lil fella in there hehe.

    I chose # 3 because of the puppy. Although I also liked # 4. In my area the engagement pics in the paper are always in black and white so #4 would probably be better if it ended up in B&W. Just a thought

    #3 – what an adorable family photo. #1 kind of looks photoshopped haha.

    I love the fourth picture!

    We submitted our engagement announcement last June. That’s the norm for our area (small town in rural NJ) – you pretty much submit it right after you get engaged and set a date. Then after the wedding you submit a wedding announcement.

    I couldn’t decide between 3 and 4.  In 3 you both look so happy and your puppy is absolutely adorable, but 4 is a more flattering photo physically.  I don’t think you can go wrong with either!
