Trend: Live Painting Your Wedding!

Calling all unphotogenic brides and grooms -- we've got a solution to your wedding photo fears that is red-eye free and totally old-school awesome.

Hiring an artist to "live paint" your wedding is an increasingly popular way to document your big day, according to the New York Times.

Basically, an artist sets up an easel in an out-of-the-way corner, and paints a "snapshot" of the action. It's an awesome way to avoid snap-happy-photographer picture overload, and you can even "paint in" people who weren't able to be there (hey, is that Elvis dancing with Aunt Maud?!). Plus you have a gorgeous piece of art to feather your newlywed nest! 

Another advantage of preserving your nuptials in oil for all time?

“You don’t see double chins in my paintings. Everybody has a couple of pounds lost,” one live-event painter told the New York Times.
