Are Engagement Pictures Really Necessary?

Recommended Posts

If we had the money and liked our weights we would have done some but we decided against them because the fiancée hates pics and we didn't want to spend the extra cash and we also were planning to lose a lot of weight before our wedding so we didn't feel comfortable taking engagement pics at our weights at the time. I would've liked them had none of these factors played a role lol.

Yeah I can understand that. You guys can still get some professional photos done on your 1st year anniversary or something if you still really want them :)

To save on the cost I didn't seek out someone advertising 'engagement photos'  because they were soooo overpriced. I just looked for a photog who charged per hour who would let us do a mix of everything!  We did us, the kids, and family photos. I spent $200 for 90 minutes and get them all edited on disc.  Will let you know in a couple weeks if it was worth it!!!

 

EDIT: and once you are at your goal weights it will be a nice reward for that too :)  I love taking pics now.... it's a nice memory to look back over when I am having a bad day!

Yea I def don't wanna pay a ton of money after we're already married lol! I can't wait to get to my goal! It feels so slow. I can see the change in my clothing but that's about it. To me I look the same, even though everyone else sees a change. I wish I could see what they do!

You will get there!  Takes a long time for your brain to catch up!!  Some days I wonder what people are thinking too, but you will get there.  All numbers, big or small, add up to big numbers.  That is why I took a lot of pictures during my journey and I kept one outfit from the beginning. When I have a downer day or forget what I have accomplished I put it on.  You may not believe this, but I can fit in one pant leg of my old jeans!  Even though some days I feel like the old Kim - which is completely impossible!

Yea even though I see no change I'm trying to take pictures because I know later I'll regret not having any to compare lol. Wow that's amazing! I'm definitely keeping some old clothes....a lot of my clothes right now have to be donated. I have one pair of jeans I just bought because all of my jeans were too big :) Luckily I had a couple of t-shirts and tanks that were fitted so now they're pretty loose but still wearable. The good and bad thing about losing weight is having to buy new clothes!

We haven't done engagement pictures, eventually I hope to get to them but it doesn't have to be immediate I guess. It can be anytime we are ready to head outside with either a tripod or a friend shooting us

You know we don't really regret it most of the time. Once in a while I wish we had done them but really more for a keepsake rather than because we actually needed them. We can always do them after the wedding when we have a bit more money :)

    • 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
