Here at jesGordon/properFUN we are obsessed with photographs! But, do you ever wonder how to use photographs at an event? Incorporating personal touches is one our favorite design secrets. Below are some great ideas that we have used at previous affairs. Enjoy!

1. Escort Card Table: Everyone at the event must stop by this table so it's a great way to display important photos. For this event, we had a library theme. We used old library cards as escort cards and had the couple's engagement photos and personal family photos on display for everyone to admire.

2. Rehearsal Dinner Invite: Use your engagement photos (or any photos -- we support your decisions) as a way to set the tone, in a personal way, the night before your wedding!

3. Memory Tree: We took photos of the couple and hung them on this ribbon, memory tree for display during the cocktail hour. Guests really enjoyed seeing the large display and getting to know the couple more through personal photos.

4. Photo Booths: We LOVE these! Not only can you personally decorate them with photos of you, you can also get photos of everyone at the party! Have them dress up and be silly. Most of the photo booths give two copies. Have a book nearby so guests can give you one copy and keep one for themselves. It's a great way to remember the event (we know it can be a bit blurry after a few cocktails)!

5. Table Numbers: Use photos of family members, relatives or even your pets, attached to your table numbers, to tell people where they are sitting! It helps guests to get to know you and the people you love, and starts a great conversation at the table.
