2017 Wedding Trends: PolaroidsSeptember 18, 2017 by The Marquardt Ranch
Choosing a photographer is one of the biggest and hardest wedding decisions. While you are trusting your photographer to capture all the special moments of your big day, why not give your guests the chance to capture some of their own?
Polaroids are the perfect old-school touch for your big day, and we wanted to share some of our favorite ways you can incorporate them in your wedding.
Provide a Polaroid camera and let your guests take a photograph of themselves to put in a guestbook. Set up a station with some fun stickers and pens so they can decorate their spot and leave a sweet note. Rather than looking back and just seeing a list of names, your guestbook will be an album full of memories of your favorite people.
Create a memory wall of polaroid pictures to display your favorite memories of you and your groom over the years. You could also make a picture wall of your bridal party, with a little blurb about who each member is and how you know them. This is a great way for guests to get to know your bridal party!
Save the Dates
Get the polaroid vibes started before your big day arrives. Make the cutest polaroid magnets to use as your save the dates. You won’t have to worry about guests losing them, since they’ll stick right to the refrigerator. (Bonus: Thank your guests after the wedding with these adorable DIY polaroids!)
Make a life-sized polaroid frame for guests to take their picture in. Have guests take pictures on their own to remember your day, or set up a digital camera for them to use so you can print out the photos and create an album or guestbook.
Disposable cameras are another old-school touch that will make your wedding day memorable. Leave a disposable camera at each table during the reception, and ask guests to take pictures of the night. Once you get them developed, you’ll get to see your big day from so many perspectives. And you may even get some awesome shots that the photographer missed!
Polaroid and disposable cameras are the perfect touch to any wedding: traditional, bohemian, edgy, or any other kind! Your guests will have a blast, and you’ll have a ton of sweet memories to cherish forever.
