Okay, so I’m really doing battle with myself on this one and it’s an issue I think I need to submit to the hive to help solve. To display at our wedding, Fi and I got a beautiful wooden photo frame that says on it “Today I marry my best friend, the one I laugh with, live for, love” and then the wedding date and our names. I need to decide THIS WEEK what 5×7 photo to get printed for the photo opening … and I’m having a hard time.
Fi and I are very, very silly people. We drink a lot — we’re the kind of people that have dinner parties that are more about the wine than the food, etc. So we get our smile on a lot, and our wedding guests (only 60 people, family and close-close friends) know this.
Well, this past weekend we were out with friends and they got us dolled up in fake veil and a “Groom” hat for Fi. This picture was taken at some point in the night, and everything about it would be perfect for our photo frame except for one thing: I think we look TOO DRUNK. In fact, I’m quite sure of it — but Fi thinks it is a wonderful picture that accurately reflects our personality as a couple.
I know I don’t want just a regular picture where we’re just smiling at the camera all cutesy, so I’m wondering if this would be a good backup picture:
Or shall I just go back to the drawing board? I mean, the main picture of us in our wedding program is this one below, so obviously I’m not shy about looking a little stupid Haha this is also Fi’s favorite picture of us. And it was ME that bought him that shirt. Sigh.

You two are so adorable!! You remind me of a younger version of me and my Fiance, lol. We’re silly people sometimes, too.
I chose the first pic. You don’t look drunk, you look HAPPY!!! YAY for happiness!!!

I like the first pic the best of the three. I don’t think you look drunk.

1 and 3 are lovely. I don’t “get” number 2, but I understand that you like its laid-backness and love no matter what message. But I think 1 or 3 would be great and since you already used 3, 1 gets my vote.

I love the first picture and you guys look great. And so happy. So what if that happy had a little help. It’s cute and real and people enjoy real. Not enough of it in the wedding world if you ask me.

you can tell you’re a bit… *tipsy* in the first one haha but not in a bad way, like you said, people know this about you, and its a cute pic, and you both look genuinely HAPPY, i’d say go for it, esp with the frame, I think it matches the idea.

@VickyAurea: Haha I think I like picture 2 because I don’t really get it either — every time I look at it, I’m like, what in hell is this a picture of?!
I’m glad we don’t look too hammered in the first picture. I guess because I know what I look like when I’m drunk, I’m afraid everyone else will see it the same way I do

I love all the pics! Nothings better than originality!
BUT the best one in my opinion is the first one, its perfect for what your using it for since you have the veil on and he is wearing the grooms hat.

@Happy Hopeful Bee: That’s what I was thinking originally — when they dressed us up in the veil and hat, I was like “we need to make sure we get a good picture for the frame!” Then this one was taken, and I loved it while I was drunk. Then today it was emailed to us and I was like, ummmmm … yeah … we look hammered. This is not good.
I’m sure we’ll switch it out for a cute picture from the actual wedding afterwards, but for now, I think the silly bachelor/ette picture might be the winner!!!

I do think you look drunk, but hey, if it makes you happy, then go for it.

I think picture 1 is just fine you don’t look too drunk at all and it’s cute and silly, and picture 3 is just hilarious!
