Right now, Tyler and I are probably on the beaches of Antigua sipping on margaritas and enjoying the married life! So it’s important to note that I wrote this post BEFORE my wedding and just scheduled it to be posted now!
Tyler will be the first person to tell you that I love, love, love pictures. I have pictures in frames all over our apartment. I love being able to see our family and closest friends everyday (even if I don’t get to see them in person).
So of course I want a thousand pictures of our wedding day. I mean, have we not been working months for this one day?! I want enough pictures to make sure I remember everything
Photo sharing sites are a really popular in the wedding world right now. By just creating a login on one of those photo sites (Flickr, Shutterfly and Snapfish are the ones I’ve heard positive things about) and then giving your guest the login information – people can easily upload their pictures from your day! So I knew right off the bat that I wanted to create a photo sharing account for our wedding.
On Pinterest, I saw some cute little “I Spy” cards that a couple used at their wedding.
I decided to draw some inspiration from this, but of course, I had to make it myself and make it unique for our wedding!
Every once in awhile, I get on these little rhyming kicks. Don’t get Tyler started talking about my little “rhyming kicks.” Ha! He usually just gives me these “are you serious looks” when I make something rhyme. But I think rhyming (in moderation) is cute… Sometimes. Hopefully in this case too since I decided to make my little “I Spy” wedding version cards rhyme! Ha! My rhyming skills aren’t the best, but I usually make do. PS I used rhyzome.com
I also wanted to have multiple version of our “I Spy” wedding cards so we could get a variety of pictures.
Here’s the front of the first “I Spy” card:
And here’s the front of the second “I Spy” card:
And the third “I Spy” card:
And, finally (!), our fourth “I Spy” card:
Of course I wanted to incorporate our bow theme into our “I Spy” cards so I added a bow tie to the top left corner of each card.
The top of the I Spy card:
Use your camera and look around
Hunt for these moments that need to be found
Just snap away and upload your shots
So the bride and groom have lots and lots!
And the bottom of the I Spy card:
Thanks for playing our silly little game
Sorry if you thought it was actually really lame
Make sure to log into our Shutterfly account and share the photos that you got
Of the day Tyler and Carolyn tied the knot!
On the back of the card, I put the login information for our Shutterfly photo sharing site:
I hope our guests enjoy our game (even if they actually do think that it’s really lame)! And maybe more importantly, I hope that people actually participate and upload their shots (of the day my husband and I tied the knot!). Ha! I guess only time will tell, but I can’t wait to see everyone’s pictures!!!
