    Honestly I’m not a big fan of either. I think it’s weird to have memorabilia of someone else’s wedding (other than a parent or child) displayed in my house.

    As a guest, I’d probably just take whatever was in the photo frame out and use the frame for another photo.

    I’m in the same boat at KatNYC2011.  I rarely, if ever, keep any kind of favor from a wedding that has the couple’s name and date printed on it.

    Maybe you could do the Corinthians verse without your names and date at the bottom.  It’s a beautiful verse, and when your guests see it in their home later, they’ll remember that they received it at your wedding.

    I admit, I wouldn’t keep someone else’s wedding poem in my house either, though I might stick the couple’s photo on my fridge.

    I’m with the other ladies.  I’d probably toss whatever was in the frame but keep the frame itself if it is cute and not engraved.

    What if you put pictures of you guys growing up, together, etc in the frames and used them to decorate your venue? I bet people would definitely go around and look at them and enjoy seeing both of you as you grew. 

    Then, after the wedding, sell the frames on Weddingbee!

    @mirezj: Are the frames plain or engraved?

    If they are plain, you could find fun postcards or images from places in your relationship to put in them.

    Or, if your guest list is small and intimate enough, put photos of you or your Fiance with the guest in their frame (might be too labor intensive).

    You could also maybe see if your photographer has access to a Polaroid type camera and could take pictures of all the guests to go into their frames.

    Or like others have said, just put the poem in the frames (without your names & wedding date).
