Are Engagement Pictures Really Necessary?

Recommended Posts

@@TinkerSofi - I have the same thought. It's like, I really like e-photos and it's nice to have some professional photos of the two of you AND I've seen couples re-use the photos for several things. BUT at the same time, I would like to save the money and splurge on a great wedding photog and do a trash the dress session. So many decisions!!!

We are not doing eng photos but instead using pics we've accumulated through the years on our wedding website. We would rather use the money for something else.

Not necessary. Do as you wish. I didn't do any. We always take pics and have so many of us together that we felt it unnecessary.

Rather put that money elsewhere.

I think they do end up looking really nice but I find they can be a little cheesy

Definitely! I think it all goes in hiring the right photographer. However, those are always the expensive ones haha

We didn't do official engagement pictures so to speak......my FI proposed in Cancun last year, while we were at a wedding there.  That resort offered resort credits and we used some of the resort credits for a photo shoot.  It was really nice to have some memories of our trip there since that is where he proposed.

I've never really understood the importance of engagement photos.

 

I personally would rather use photos from vacations that FI and I have taken together instead.

 

To me it just seems like an unnecessary added expense... there's way too many ways to waste money when planning a wedding!!  You just gotta filter through everything and decide where you want your money to be spent.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
