Me again, another little dilemma. We have decided on scrapping the place cards and replacing them with mini photo frames and have a photo of each guest at the table instead of a place card. This will also be their favor.
Some family and friends think this is too much hard work for myself and others think that some people may think its cheap?
My fiance and I thought it was cute and adds a personal touch…any comments??

I think it’s cute too. If you don’t mind the work I say go with it. Everybody is going to have an opinion. Just do what makes you happy.

I don’t think it’s cheap at all. If I were a guest, I would be wowed and touched that you put that much effort into it.

Could you find a photo of yourself or Fiance with that person? I think that would be really cute!

Do you really have a photo of each of your guests? If you don’t, then I’d say it would be a lot of hard work to try and track one down.
I’d say it was cute, if you could come up with a photo of either you or your Fiance with the guest, but if it is just a photo of them, I think it may be a little wierd. They may not like that specific picture of themselves and then in that case, they wouldn’t really enjoy having it framed. To be honest, if I wanted a picture of myself framed, I would have framed it myself. Unless, you do something themed like… baby/kid pictures of each person… that would be cute and fun.
I definately wouldn’t think it is “cheap” though.

I wouldn’t call it cheap by any means but it will be hard work tracking down a picture of each guest. I know we don’t have one of every guest on our list.
How will your guests know that is where they are expected to sit and that those are the favors? If you want it, go for it.

Thanks for that, i know I have pictures of everyone but I get what you mean saying that some people may not like that certain photo.
I think we’ll have photos of one of us with each person (may be young pictures, but that could be cute too).
It will be a lot of work but I think we’ll enjoy it, thats what a Maid of Honor is for too right? ha.xx
