Husband and I were really strict with pictures. We requested for an unplugged ceremony (no one listened, of course), so there were pictures being posted on social media right after the ceremony.
I don’t know if it’s a cultural thing but our families are obsessed with pictures (definitely my mom more than his though. My MIL in chill about pictures).
Our plan was to keep it a secret once we got pictures back from our photographer (my parents have asked me everyday). We’ll be sending “thank you” cards and making copies for our big group picture we had after the ceremony with our photographer. We wanted to make “brag books” for our parents.
my question is how did you format them? My mom is very particular and critical and she could care less about my husband’s side of the family with pictures. Same goes for MIL. I also don’t want to give away too many pictures bc it is our wedding and we have our own “brag” book”, per se. (also, my husband’s side of the family was huge). Here’s the events I was thinking:
-immediate family pics
- bridesmaids/groomsmen wedding party pic
- pics with bride and groom
- pics with parents in it
- events within our ceremony
- reception entrance
- cake cutting
- first dance, mother/son, father/daughter
Then the few spaces I have with family members I’ll switch acc to bride’s side vs. groom side.
thoughts and ideas?
