Should wedding invitations include photos?

To add an extra-special touch to your upcoming nuptials, choose a photo invitation template with one or more spaces to include your favorite pics. If you and your partner have been together for a long time, showcase your transformation with a photo from when you first started dating next to a current candid.

If you’re worried about space or you want to add more photos than our templates have room for, try our customizable Blocks, which appear directly below the main invitation. It’s easy to add a Photo Gallery Block to your invitation, whether it’s a classic, modern, rustic, or romantic wedding invitation.

How do you choose a photo for wedding invitations?

Choose a photo for your wedding invitations that includes you and your partner front and center, without much background noise—a gorgeous sunset photo is lovely, but a concert selfie with multiple strangers in the frame, not so much. Use your engagement photo, or choose a picture from a memorable vacation, your first house together, or a family snapshot that includes your kids and pets.

Sending photo wedding invitations through Paperless Post

It’s easy to send invitations and manage your guest list with Paperless Post. Upload your contacts or add them individually, and send your invitations via email, text, or shareable link. Track opens and RSVPs in real time, and use our guest messaging platform to send reminders and communicate with invitees individually or as a group.

What do you include in a photo wedding invitation?

Include the five W’s in your photo wedding invitation: Who, what, why, when, and where. Traditional invitations list the parents’ names first, but many couples opt to use only their names. Include the date, time, and location of the ceremony and reception. Read up on wedding invitation etiquette for more tips on sending your invitations.

Our unique wedding invitations with photos are thoughtfully worded, but you can alter them as much as you like—change certain words, or delete all of the text and start from scratch. The wording should feel natural, match your personality, and reflect the formality of your event—use casual language for an easy-going backyard wedding, or opt for traditional wording for a formal wedding at a luxurious banquet hall.
