Hi for the invitations and souvenir, try to do your research at the web. think first of the motif and theme of the wedding. For example: if its a beach wedding, consider putting on shell on the invitations. if its hawaiin wedding, try flowers. for the classic wedding, just try putting ribbons and have the usual bells or doves design For the pictures, We have our official photographer. they have to make sure that the wedding is well documented but I also requested all (as in all) of our guest to also take photos during our weddings. I told them that I also want to see the all behind scene during my wedding and that it doesn't mean that we should always be at the picture. After the wedding, we collect the photos and collate it into one album. It was so fun and memories really comes back every time we take a look at the album with pictures contributed by my guest. It also signifies that our guest really enjoy our wedding as well. Hope this helps.

weddings...hmmm i dunno. coz im too young to ever think about it. anyway, i would suggest this thing that you can make a collage invitation make it personalized about your brother and his bride to be like their pictures, letters, events that they were together...like their love story. so it comes out personal and wonderful. and it will be unforgettable.

I would have the invitations printed with the ink in the color of the wedding, they will need to go out by june, early july at the latest. If you are going to take the pictures your self instead of hiring a photographer then ask two or three of your friends that have digital cameras to help. They can show up to the location early and take a ton of pics before during and after. I think it would be cool to take pictures of guests as they arrive. Perhaps get a small white board and let them write a message on it to be with them in the pics. As far as gift for the guests, have them write their email addresses in a special book and email them pics from the wedding that include pics of them at the event and the bride a groom cutting the cake or a picture like it. If you use digital cameras and have one person specifically taking pics as they enter the building then when they give their email address you can write the number of the pic down that the guest was in. It will be extra work but I would have loved the pics from my wedding to have been digital, I would not have printed all of them. The guests would not have something to take with them but the pictures would mean more I think.

you must know what your brother want to have. then you prepare this thing for him. if he don't need ,even your gift are very expensive . he also not feel very happy. so just give him the things that he likes.
