We’ve got you covered with some photo wedding invitation ideas and why you should totally go for them!
A lot of couples take engagement photos because it is the “engaged” thing to do!
We’re big fans of dressing up, having fun and getting photos taken as a couple… But, what do you do with all those photos after the engagement session? Surely you can do more than just putting them in a frame or an album…
What do you say we use your engagement photos to create your wedding invitation?
Without further ado, let’s get into it!
3 Reasons Why You Should Go For A Photo Wedding Invitation Instead:
1. Add A Personal Touch

“I feel like a photo adds more of a personal feel, especially since we were doing a more simple beach style wedding with only close friends and family.”
Photo wedding invitations are a lot more personal and one of a kind. It’s like “inviting your friends face to face”, Bali bride Stefie says.
We couldn’t agree with her more! It really adds another dimension to inviting your loved ones to your big day!

It no doubt brings a smile to your guest’s face when they first open your wedding invitation… There is more personalities in a photo wedding invitation because your photos reflect more of you two as a couple.

2. Get Your Guests Excited About Your Big Day
We imagine you want your guests to be as excited about your wedding as you and your partner are! Trust us, they’re more excited seeing both of your faces than pretty flowers and fancy fonts.
P.S. Nothing wrong with the above things because we’re suckers for them too!
“I have had nothing but positive responses regarding my photo wedding invites. People stated that knowing the type of people we are that best captured that.”
Engagement Photography: Jessica Noelle Photography
“I loved the idea of something personal, something that felt like us I guess. We aren’t really formal/fancy people and this felt right.
I made the decision to go this route but my husband loved the idea as well. We had nothing but positive comments, people actually didn’t want to send the rsvp cards back because they wanted them to keep and put on their refrigerators :)”
That’s definitely a good problem to have when your wedding guests don’t want to send your RSVP card back because they want to keep it themselves lol
Your engagement photos give your guests a glimpse of what your wedding will be like.
If you and your partner are a fun and adventurous couple, make sure your engagement photographer capture that!

Despite the fact that most invitations go straight to the bin, so many of our brides have told us that their guests still have their photo wedding invitations on their fridge YEARS LATER!
“Everyone loved the invites and said the elegant simplicity fit my husband and I perfectly. Some even still have them hanging on the fridge!”
How amazing is that!?
Just think about all the time, effort and money you’ve spent on them, we’re guessing you’d want your wedding invitations to last for a long time, right?
