- Wedding: July 2015
I’m not really into all the hoopla surrounding grad merchandise; I have no intention of buying any graduation wear, or class rings (although I plan on getting a ring when I get my Masters degree, because at the university where I’d like to earn the degree, the rings are worth more than the diploma itself). I do want to get some graduation portraits done though, because I know my family will want some, plus they do some casual photos which will really come in handy for promoting my small business.
I know where I’d like to get the photos done, but I’m not sure when the right time would be to actually get them taken. I graduate in January, but the formal convocation ceremony is not until next May of next year. I can’t decide if I should get the photos soon so that I can give them to family when I am vacationing in July, or if it is better to wait until closer to my actual graduation date and I’ll just send them out in Christmas cards.
Are there any other graduating bees ordering grad photos? How many months before graduation did you/will you get the portraits done?
