What to do with Your Engagement Pictures | Part I

You prepared big time for your engagement pictures.  Your makeup was perfect, your outfits were on point, and maybe you even decided to take it up a notch and rent a dress from Rent the Runway.

Alas, you receive an email that your engagement photos are ready, followed by a properly placed smiley face emoticon, and you are overwhelmed.  It’s a good overwhelmed because as you look through your engagement photo gallery you can’t help but love every single picture.

You both immediately change your Facebook profiles, you each receive a million likes and comments such as “oh my goodness you two are adorable”, “I can’t wait for your wedding”, and “that dress is stunning”.

Your love tank is overflowing from each dose of affirmation.

After you’ve shared your pictures on Facebook, what other options do you have.  In this 3-Part Series, I’ll give you a few ideas for what to do with your engagement pictures.

The first idea is an autograph signature mat.

This is a fantastic idea because it is something that you can hang up in your home, and read sweet comments that were left by your family and friends. Love this!


A few places that you can purchase a signature mat are Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, and Amazon.  Also, ask your photographer if this is something that they offer to eliminate one more thing from your wedding planning to do list.

I hope that you find this helpful as you think about what to do with your engagement pictures.

Happy Wednesday!
