    Do you plan/are you printing out photos of you two for your thank you cards or christmas cards?I am going to put a photo in our Xmas cards, but we didn't do a 'thank you' shot and knwing us, we'd pick a picture WAY late and I'd still be writing thank yous.
    Do you plan/are you giving your parents albums?Yes, and I am using blurb. Hopefully they will be done in time for xmas.
    What is/was on your must take photo list (and DIDN'T get taken)?I wanted a family photo without my father's mother because she abandoned him when he was 3, but somehow she got in the photo. I didn't really have any artsy requests though, as I was more concerned with formation.
    How do you feel about including dogs and cats in weddings?tacky and lame.

    Do you plan/are you printing out photos of you two for your thank you cards or christmas cards? It's up in the air.  FI's mom is going to take some pictures of us tomorrow, and if any of them come out well, we might include one.

    Do you plan/are you giving your parents albums? This year?  No.

    What is/was on your must take photo list (and DIDN'T get taken)? Haven't gotten married yet!

    How do you feel about including dogs and cats in weddings? To each their own, but I wouldn't do it.

    Do you plan/are you printing out photos of you two for your thank you cards or christmas cards? yes, we did xmas cards

    Do you plan/are you giving your parents albums? yes

    What is/was on your must take photo list (and DIDN'T get taken)?there is no picture of me with DH's whole family.  We have me and his mom, me and his sisters, DH, me and his brother.   His mom and siblings, but none with me and the whole family.

    How do you feel about including dogs and cats in weddings? I do not think it's cute or anything, but mostly I just do not care either way






    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated.

    Do you plan/are you printing out photos of you two for your thank you cards or christmas cards? Yes, we will probably include our e-pics, if we get the high res images before I need to send them out.

    Do you plan/are you giving your parents albums? At some point after the wedding, yes.

    What is/was on your must take photo list (and DIDN'T get taken)? Nothing yet

    Do you plan/are you printing out photos of you two for your thank you cards or christmas cards? I'm horrible at sending Christmas cards!  Maybe if I can get my act together, I'll print out one of our e-pics to use.

    Do you plan/are you giving your parents albums? Absolutely!  They're not included in our package, so I'll see how much the photographers charge vs one of the photobook sites.

    What is/was on your must take photo list (and DIDN'T get taken)? I want a really cool ring picture.  And family pictures of course.

    How do you feel about including dogs and cats in weddings? My dog is wayyyy too spastic to even be around us the day of the wedding.  I like pictures of the bride with her dog/cat before the ceremony, but having them participate seems a bit much to me.

    [QUOTE]Wedding related today.... Do you plan/are you printing out photos of you two for your thank you cards or christmas cards? 
    We didn't for thank you cards & won't for holiday cards.

    Do you plan/are you giving your parents albums? 
    Maybe.  If I do, it'll be a Shutterfly album.  We still haven't even gone through all the photos to get OUR album!

    What is/was on your must take photo list (and DIDN'T get taken)? 
    We didn't actually have a must-take list

    How do you feel about including dogs and cats in weddings?
    I think it's adorable in theory.  I'm an animal person of the first degree.  However, I think unless you've got an exceptionally well-trained dog, it's likely to go as well as  young kids in a wedding - they're unlikely to follow script and blocking.  Plus, depending on where you're getting married and what the venue is like, what do you do with the pet afterwards?  They can't be in the restaurant/catering hall with the food, or the health department would have a fit.  And you can't leave them in the car for 4 hours.  So I don't even know how this would work.

    Wedding thank you cards: Yes, I would like to do that.
    Christmas cards: We should be getting our hi-res CD of e-pics this week, so I'll talk to FI and see if he wants to get photo Christmas cards this year.

    Do you plan/are you giving your parents albums?
    Yes, but we'll probably DIY through MyPublisher or Blurb or something. They're not included in our photography package.

    What is/was on your must take photo list (and DIDN'T get taken)?
    I would really like a picture with my family dog. I'd also like one with my cat but IDK if that'll happen since I'm probably getting dressed at my parents' house and the cat can be cranky when he's away from home. I'd also like it if we could get some group pics with high school friends and college friends.

    How do you feel about including dogs and cats in weddings?
    I can 100% understand why people want to do it, because I regard pets as members of the family. I think it can be very sweet if it's done properly, but I think there are just too many factors for it to work well in most situations.

    Do you plan/are you printing out photos of you two for your thank you cards or christmas cards? Probaby not, though I woudln't surprise me if my mom used/included them in hers since that's fairly common in her family.

    Do you plan/are you giving your parents albums? Yes, but we might make theirs for Christmas on Shutterfly or Blurb since we need more than 2.

    What is/was on your must take photo list (and DIDN'T get taken)? Not sure yet

    How do you feel about including dogs and cats in weddings? Not a fan, unless it's just the family pets running around the yard at a backyard wedding.

    Do you plan/are you printing out photos of you two for your thank you cards or christmas cards?
    No for the thank yous.  We might include a picture in some of the Christmas cards though... I hadn't thought about it much yet.
    Do you plan/are you giving your parents albums?
    I think both sets of parents plan on purchasing the parent albums from our photographer.  I was going to put together an album at shutterfly and give it to them for Christmas (with the shots that were taken by everyeone else) but my sister-in-law already got her mom one.  So I'm probably still going to for my mom.
    What is/was on your must take photo list (and DIDN'T get taken)?
    I wish there were more photos of me interacting with the guests.  Lots of pictures of me and DH (which I like, don't get me wrong), and lots with bridal party... but anytime I was dancing with someone else or talking to them... it seems like they got cropped out.  And I'm left with an awkward picture of just me.
    How do you feel about including dogs and cats in weddings?
    I agree with the pp, its a lot like including small children... too unpredictable for me.

    Do you plan/are you printing out photos of you two for your thank you cards or Christmas cards? I did. We aren't the type of people to put our pictures on cards and send them out every year but since we got married this past October I'd figure it would be nice :)

    Do you plan/are you giving your parents albums? Yes, but next year.

    What is/was on your must take photo list (and DIDN'T get taken)? Our escort card table and our reception tables at night with the candles lit.

    How do you feel about including dogs and cats in weddings? Not sure about this one. I personally wouldn't want to be the responsible for keeping the pet busy and taking it out! Surprised

    Do you plan/are you printing out photos of you two for your thank you cards or christmas cards?  Hadn't really thought about it, probably not.

    Do you plan/are you giving your parents albums?  Yup, it's in our package.  Our photographer makes absolutely gorgeous albums, I'm really excited.  We're also getting little mini albums as gifts for our attendants.

    What is/was on your must take photo list (and DIDN'T get taken)?  I don't think I really have any must take photos.  I do want lots of detail shots: rings, flowers, food, invitations...  I worked hard on this stuff, dammit!

    How do you feel about including dogs and cats in weddings?  Cute in theory, execution depends on how well behaved they are.  I'm not a fan of dressing them up, which I've seen.

    This is a belated married bio, with no reviews yet because I'm lazy.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    1) I'm planning on doing them for the Thank You cards ... but that doesn't mean it will get done, lol

    2) I want to do an albums for the moms. Both of our parents are divorced, and we really don't have great relationships with our dads.

    3) I only have 1 real "must take":  a pic of me with the 5 generations of women in my mom's family: me, my sisters, my neice, my mom, grandma  and great-grandma

    4) I honestly hate when people do this sort of thing. I will be the first person to say pets are members of the family, but you wouldn't bring them to somebody else's wedding, so WHY should the participate in yours?

    Do you plan/are you printing out photos of you two for your thank you cards or christmas cards?
    I saw a photo on a wedding blog the other day of the bride and groom holding "thank" "you" signs and thought it was cute...we might do "muchas" "gracias" and use them for thank you's

    Do you plan/are you giving your parents albums?
    That's the plan

    What is/was on your must take photo list (and DIDN'T get taken)?
    Not sure yet

    How do you feel about including dogs and cats in weddings?
    If we were having a more casual, outdoor wedding, our dog would be there for sure. So many people have asked if she's coming, but she wouldn't be happy at our venue with us not paying attention to her even if they would let her inside! If we were outside she could run around and sniff things, and she doesn't run off so that wouldn't be a problem (she was a street dog, she prefers living with us!.

    Do you plan/are you printing out photos of you two for your thank you cards or christmas cards? We sent out a photo of the two of us from our wedding two years ago for Christmas cards.  This year, I think I'll just send regular cards.

    Do you plan/are you giving your parents albums? We did make each parent a small album of photos we thought they'd enjoy.

    What is/was on your must take photo list (and DIDN'T get taken)?  We wanted family and BP shots.  My biggest regrets are not getting a shot solo with my brother and not getting one with DH's grandparents who left early.

    I'm sorry I couldn't hear you....look there's Elvis!
