Make save-the-date cards

It is time to send your save-the-date-cards and you are looking for a fabulous design? Print your engagement photos and send them out to your friends and family! Some couples like to make a special image for this purpose and holding a sign that says “save-the-date” or the digits of the actual wedding date is a lovely idea. You can also carve the letters or numbers in sand if you are having a photo shoot on the beach or write them on a balloon.

Personalise your stationery or bomboniere

Printing your best engagement photo on wedding stationery is also a good idea. If you want it to be just a subtle detail rather than the key feature of the design, then you can use the photo to make envelope liners or perhaps even design your own postage stamp. To add a special touch to your Bomboniere packaging, attach the photo to the bottom of the packaging or on the inner side of the box.

Make a cover for your wedding guest book

A beautiful engagement photo will make a great wedding guest book cover too! You can also ask your photographer to print out the entire album and use it as a guest book at your wedding reception. This is a great idea because you will have all the images in hard copy and the guest book will make a lovely keepsake.

Display them at your wedding reception

If you really love your engagement photos and you want everyone to see them, why not showcase them at your wedding reception! You can place them in classic frames or in glass jars to make unique centrepieces or attach them with wooden pegs on paper strings along with other family photos. You can even project your favourite ones on one of the walls.

Print a wedding newspaper

A wedding newspaper or magazine is a new wedding trend brides and grooms are crazy about. Be celebrities on that special day and be featured in newspapers printed especially for your wedding. Write your love story and illustrate it with engagement photos. Add a few pompous headlines and a few more quirky details and you will have the most amazing keepsake to help you always remember your wedding day.

Make souvenirs

Another great way to use your engagement photos is to make fun and creative souvenirs. It can be anything from a jigsaw puzzle, a set of mugs, fridge magnets, personalised bottle openers or notebooks. Give them away to your closest friends and family and keep some of them for yourselves. One day your children will appreciate these cute keepsakes!
