I need to admit something that may make me look totally un-internet-savvy.
I am recently new to Stumble Upon.
Like, so new that I didn’t even know that this website existed until a couple of weeks ago. I’m kind of embarrassed because apparently I’ve been living in a deep dark hole according to some of my friends!
Anyway, so I have an account with Stumble Upon, and while I was “stumbling” the other day, I found this really awesome website. I hate that I found it only because I wish that I had found it about 6 months ago when I was making my wedding invitations.
The website I am talking about is called, WedPics.com
Have any of you heard of it??
I hope it’s not something that everyone has known about except me, because I’ll be even more embarrassed.
Anyway, here’s the low down on WedPics.
WedPics is a site that helps newlyweds track down their wedding photos that were taken at their wedding by their wedding guests.
Believe me, for anyone who was just married, they know how hard this is! What an incredibly difficult task it has been (and will continue to be) to get pictures that my own guests took at my wedding. I am thankful to all my guests who posted their pictures from our wedding on Facebook. But, for people who didn’t do that, or don’t have Facebooks, or live far away, or whatever… there is WedPics!!
You create an account (sign up is free), and put up an album prior to your wedding day. The album is password protected. Then, WedPics will send you some small cards to put inside your wedding invitations that explain where people can upload their photos from the wedding. Oh… and by the way, they send them for FREE!
On your wedding day, people who are snapping photos with an Android or iPhone can immediately upload their photo(s) into a WedPics app! People who are using digital cameras, can simply upload their photos to the WedPics website—right into the album that was created for the wedding day.
|This is an example of a wedding album up on WedPics! People can comment/love your photos!|
And NO... I am not their spokes person, nor am I trying to sell anything because the site is absolutely 100% free. I am simply trying to get the word out there on how fabulous this is!!
Unfortunately for me, my day has already passed, and I am sure that I will be trying to track down photos for at least another year!
This website would have been an absolute God send!! So, I posted this in hopes of helping out a bride-to-be who may read this. Believe me, if you are as into photos as I am… this website is a MUST HAVE!!

With that said… I’m off to Massachusetts for a BBQ Festival at Wachusett Mountain. Going to try to enjoy every last bit of Fall in New England before Hurricane Sandy ruins it all!!
See you Monday!
