Yours Truly Wedding Albums

We have seen them get left behind on thumb drives, old picture CD’s and even photo gallery sites. Some get misplaced, popping up years later scratched or piled high in dust bunnies. Sadly, some never show back up. Ever.

Imagine one day down the line, wanting to share your wedding photos with your kids.  You run to find the thumb drive, only to realize your computer no longer has a USB port. This could be you! It sounds scary, but imagine if got married 15 years ago and you received a floppy disk of photos. How would you see them now? Please be warned ladies! Nothing is worse than storing your favorite memories on obsolete digital media and getting left behind.

Let the excitement begin because….you’re engaged! By now you probably have engagement photos, printed out the ones you love, facebooked all 385 shots taken and entered them into every cutest couple contest across the web! (because obviously, you are the cutest couple!). But now what?

These days, many couples use their engagement photos on their save-the-date cards, but aren’t always sure how else they can be used. We have some amazing ideas on how to use those “cutest couple of the year” photos!

 

1.  Custom printed puzzles

Choose your favorite engagement photo and turn it into a puzzle! Allow guests of your engagement party or bridal shower to write words of advice on the back of each piece! In years to come or on anniversary’s, rebuild the puzzle together while re-reading each piece of advice!

 

2.  Sign in Guest Book

Gone are the days of signing your name and address in a book. Today’s brides want a more personal approach. A lot couples order brag books of their engagement pics, but take things one step further with a sign in guest book showing off your most amazing engagement photos! Guests can leave you a note of congratulations and you’ll have an amazing keepsake that you will cherish forever!

 

3. Add photos to table centerpieces

Another great idea is to add your engagement images to your reception table centerpieces. You can put them in an old mason jars, use them to show table numbers, or put them in frames on each table.

 

4. Wedding favors

Engagement photos are great for creating custom treat labels at your reception! Add your images to things like candy bars, wine bottle labels or even water bottles.

 

5.  Custom Postage Stamps

Make a custom postage stamp for your wedding invites using your engagement photos! These stamps can also be used for thank you cards and bridal shower invites as well.

Are you a budget savvy bride looking for a ideas on how to create the most beautiful wedding known to man….without blowing your budget? We have some tips that can help take your dime a long way!

Wedding venues can be quite pricey, but with a little research, you can find a great place for a great price! Did you know that many public spaces, like parks or the local village green, may be available to rent at a low fee? How about renting someones space, like a friend who has a beautiful property or search online for private space rentals. Recently we came across shareyourspace.com and found a ton of great places to rent on the cheap!

 

The Brattle Lawn at Wesley University (Boston area)

Outdoor weddings and receptions are one of the hottest trends we saw in 2014, and with a little research they don’t have to be expensive. Check local schools and parks, like the Brattle Lawn at Wesley University. They rent the lawn on weekends for a much lower cost that most venues.

Small intimate Loft Rental (Chicago area)

Having a smaller more intimate reception? Research loft spaces for daily rental. Loft spaces are more easily found in cities, and if you are located close to a larger metro area, this may be the perfect spot!
