Perhaps your wedding photographer have sent you some sneak peeks of your engagement shoot and you’ve been so eager to get all your professional photos back.
Your amazing wedding photographer is probably still sorting and editing away… Don’t rush them! You want your photos to be perfect, right?
In the meantime, there are a few things you can do while waiting for your engagement photos! Something to do to kill time now and save you time later…
3 Things You Should Do while Waiting for Your Engagement Photos:
1. Find an amazing wedding invitation design
Something that suits you guys as a couple.
Something that both of you agree on.
Something that will work perfectly with your engagement photos.

You may not have the high quality photos yet but I’m sure your photographer would have sent you some sneak peeks!
Or you can go back to the day of your engagement shoot… Close your eyes and imagine what it will look like with your photos 😛

2. Get your numbers right
Ok here’s the deal…
Just because you are inviting 100 guests, it doesn’t necessarily mean you will need to send out 100 invitations.
Yes that’s right…
The reason being is that out of the 100 guests; some are couples and families. If you didn’t know, you can actually invite a couple or a family with one invitation set.
So the best part? By the sound of it, you may only need like half of that number (from your guest list).

Just in case anything happens though.. Be sure to order a few extra cards! 5-10 extra invitation sets sound about right..
You never know if Mary can’t make it, you may want to invite John instead to fill that empty seat.
3. Address the envelopes
Some of you may be getting your envelopes from your wedding invitation vendor, this is the best time to compile the addresses from your guests and put them into an Excel sheet.
Trust us, it will make your life so much easier. You can colour code the ones you’ve already done.
If you are using your own envelopes, then you can pretty much start addressing them and putting those stamps on.
Pour yourself a glass of wine and make this a fun activity for yourself (and your hubby-to-be! Get him to help you :D).
It may be a bit overwhelming looking at your guest list… However it’s only stressful if you make it to be. Why not put your favourite Netflix show on in the background while you address those envelopes?
Wait there’s more…
That means you can send your wedding invitations out as soon as they are done! Not having everything piled up at the same time sounds like a great idea to me 😛
There you have it, 3 things you should do while waiting for your engagement photos so you can kill time now and save you time later!
