    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.

                  We will not have a big picture of us. I don't really like the idea of having a life size photo of us. We will have our guest book filled with photos of us instead.
