Bride and groom pictures at the reception??

Recommended Posts

Question for the bdw brides - the traditional wedding reception normally has a picture of bride and groom at the entrance of the reception. For those of us who has a destination wedding, how do you plan on having the picture place? Do you plan to have any at all? With the picture In a big frame, how do you manage to get it to your destination? Please help!

I am not planning on having this at all. I AM planning on having a sign on the guest book table that is fairly large - but not as big as you are talking about - that my bm used - and then gave me - for my shower. It says "Sandy toes and salty kisses" which is also on our website, and is all distressed and such. Our guestbook is a photobook of us too, so I think that eliminates the need for a big picture. Besides, I have been to lots of local weddings lately that do not use that big picture.

 

If you wanted to, you could do something similar to my sign - a larger picture - maybe 8 x 10 or larger - on a guestbook table or something like that. If you did a photo-wrapped canvas and wrapped it in clothing in your suitcase, that would probably be fine and a good way to transport it.

Thank you!  I'm just wondering if it would be weird if we dont have any big picture of us at the reception.

 

Btw, i just noticed your big day was a few days ago.  Congrats!  That's exciting!

If it helps at all, I've been to lots of weddings recently and not one had the big picture of the bride and groom. I think that's slowly becoming a thing of the past. There are lots of cute things you can do to incorporate pictures into your wedding/reception. Look on Pinterest, there are some great ideas on there! Happy planning!

I think the trend now is to have more natural photos, instead of the typical wedding photos. Im still not sure on our style yet but i think it will be more relaxed and spontaneous, it looks gorgeous xx

I haven't seen it being used anymore for some reason.  I have seen people use a smaller picture around the cake table or the card box.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
