We classically think of engagement photos as wedding announcements used in save-the-date cards and wedding guest books. But don’t limit yourself. Engagement photos are far more versatile than that! They’re a can-do treasure trove for personalizing your big day (particularly for the DIY bride).
Want some examples? Try one of these fun and easy decoration ideas at your wedding:
1) Photo Ring Pillow
Get your favorite image printed onto fabric and sew your own wedding ring pillow! Fabulous fabrics can be printed at spoonflower.com by emailing them a photo. Get out your needle and thread and use this simple tutorial on how to create your own personalized ring pillow.
2) Gorgeous Garlands
String up your photos and decorate your wedding or reception sites with beautiful garlands. Print photos and cut them into creative shapes (pendants, circles, squares) then attach them to ribbons with thread or clothespins. Mix ‘n match your engagement photos with goofy images of the couple as babies for a fun “now & then” theme.
4) Prints on Chocolate
We thought photos were sweet to begin with, but it turns out they just got sweeter. Print your photos onto chocolate treats! Give chocolate photo-truffles as wedding favors, or dress up your centerpieces with these tiny treats. From lollipops to entire boxed sets, check out all the delicious ways you can use your photos on candy at: prints-on-chocolate.com.
3) Cocktail Coasters
Decorate your cocktail hour with custom coasters featuring your engagement photos. These classy rounds can also be strung up to make an elegant garland that hangs above the bar! Order stylish coasters at pinholepress.com.
5) Bubbly Photos
Celebrate with wine and champagne! Decorate your bubbly with a romantic image of the wedding couple using Pinhole Press’s custom labels! Give bottles of wine away as gifts or use them as the signature drink of the event.
