using photos in wedding stationery

There are so many creative ways to use photos in your wedding stationery – it adds such a personal touch that guests really cherish. We’ve helped our clients use photos in so many different items – from the save the dates through to the wedding programs.

These are just a few of our favorites!

This save the date is so much fun and is one of our favorites. The bride and groom made this save the date sign, which they brought along at their engagement session at Gasworks Park. The back of the save the date contains additional information for their guests – accommodations, etc. {As a side note, we display this save the date at wedding shows that we participate in and it’s always the one item that garners the most attention! It’s a hit!} Engagement photo by Barbie Hull photography, product photo by Kruse Photography.

Another save the date – this time using adorable photos of the bride and groom as kids! The childhood photos are a perfect complement to their theme, “Our story continues…”

This couple was engaged while traveling through Argentina and wanted to share the excitement of that moment with their guests. Their save the dates featured a photo of them immediately after the proposal and you can just read the excitement on their faces. The save the dates also incorporate some vintage, feminine details that are a perfect prelude to the wedding invitations and overall wedding style.

Here’s something a little different: this couple didn’t use photos of themselves in their wedding stationery, but used vintage photos from their wedding location. They were married at the Copper Creek Lodge in Rainier National Park and received permission from the Lodge to use really fun photos of the lodge itself and of vacationers in the park in the 1930s and 1940s.

This couple wanted to add a personal touch to their wedding invitation, so they chose to use an rsvp postcard with their photo on the front of the postcard. Product photo by Kruse photography.

These programs both feature engagement photos in their wedding colors on the programs – a fun way to use beautiful engagement photos and give your guests some eye candy to look at while waiting for the ceremony to begin!

This couple used fun photos taken throughout their time dating on the table numbers throughout their reception. They have traveled together all over the world, so their photos were a great international reflection of their explorations.

These thank you postcards were printed in the wedding colors and feature an engagement shot of the couple. I love the idea of using postcards for thank yous – save a little money on postage! Engagement photo by Bella Rock Studio.

    For my sisters wedding, they did the pictures with the table numbers. Table 1 had pictures of them when they were 1, table 2 had pictures of them when they were 2, etc. Table 17 was them at Senior Ball when they were dating in high school. Cute!

    I agree that a photo gives a much more personal touch.
