  • Megan Nance

    1. Matching overalls with my siblings
    2. Yay for photos on invites

  • Taylor

    1. I have definitely rocked a tacky sweater a couple of times in my life. So embarrassing!
    2. Personally, I think photos are best for save-the-dates and thank-you notes. Invitations should be more formal. :)

  • Liz

    1. One year my Great Aunt made all the under 18s matching sweatshirts. They were white with the same cartoon dinosaur applique on them, taking up most of the left side of the front of the sweater. Good thing I was 7 or so and didn’t mind much.

    2. The invites (and everything else) should be exactly what the couple wants to do. So if you want a photo, have a photo and rock it!

  • Stephanie

    1. Last year for our Christmas cards my fiance and I decide to create our own version of an awkward family photo. He bought big 80′s glasses, a white turtle neck, and high waisted jeans. I wore a red silk blouse and a cheesy Christmas vest. Our families loved it!

    2. Photos are fun! Yay!

  • Nate Grede

    1) Matching Christmas fleeces when I was a kid. Not sweaters… fleeces.
    2)Yay if done tactfully

  • Jennifer

    Growing up my mom made my sisters and I matching homemade dresses. Every year was an awkward year.
    I think photos are better on save the dates then the invitations.

  • Kelly

    We never had to wear anything embarassing but there are plently of photos of us just getting up looking like zombies. Not our best moments for sure.

    And, don’t mind photos on invitations depending on how they are done. It can borded on not looking nice so as long as it is well thought out i’m sure it would look great.

  • Kim Broschart

    1- One year my mom made me wear this ugly red fuzzy sweater. It was so itchy and hideous!!
    2- I think it is a great idea, I’m planning on having them on our wedding invites from magnet street!

  • ivyprince

    1) we actually never did holiday photos. I did do a holiday picture with my toy poodle. She had on a santa outfit. it was too cute!!
    2) I say nay for pictures on wedding invitations. I think it takes away from the formal feel of the event. However, if the invitation is for a non-traditional bride, and having a picture fits her, then i’m all for it!

    2.Yay! It would be cute!

  • JOAN

    1. Our family outdoor christmas card included older brother under a christmas tree with younger sister holding a chainsaw. Had so many comments on that years Christmas Card,

    2. I prefer a formal wedding invitation without a picture. Save the pictures for Save the dates and thank you cards.

  • Cierra

    1. One year we all wore denim shirts and kaki pants. Gotta love the 1990′s!

    2. I think photos are great for save the dates so you see the couple every time you look at the little reminder on your fridge. As for photos on wedding invitations… I’m personally not a fan, but to each their own.

  • Katrina House

    I definitely wore plenty of tree, reindeer, and snowman adorned sweaters and dresses in our pictures as kids :)
    I don’t think photos on invitations are my personal style but to each their own :)

  • bonnie

    1. Since we had ten people in our family, we had my grandfather be Santa Claus while everyone else be his reindeers. We had to wear brown sweaters with a reindeer face and antler headbands. It was quite hilarious.

    2. I love the elegance of wedding invitations so I would vote nay for photos on wedding invitations. but for destination weddings, pictures could be a plus :)

  • KJA

    Last years ugly sweater party pictures are pretty bad….Love pictures on invitations:)

  • Jessica

    1. Wearing antlers because my dog refused to wear them!
    2. For a casual wedding, yay. For a more formal wedding though, nay to photos on the wedding invitation.

  • LaShanda

    Matching outfits. Nay.

  • Rose

    When I was in grade school I insisted on wearing my catwoman costume in the picture. A few years later, I was so embarrassed, but looking back now it’s just funny.
    As long as the photo fits the invitations theme, it can be great. When it looks like it’s just a random picture of the couple however, it doesn’t work.

    Unattractive Christmas sweaters.

    Nay, less classy.
