Weddings take a lot of planning and the big day is over before you know it. Now you’re wondering what to do with your best wedding photos. It’s time to get creative and use your memorable wedding photos as decor in your home. Here are some innovative ways to display your precious wedding photos uniquely.
Traditional Mounting and Framing
Hanging wedding photos in a grouping on the wall is one of the traditional ways to display pictures. Frames are available in a wide range of colors, styles, and finishes to complement your home decor. Classic, rustic, contemporary, or ornate are among the styles from which to choose. Finishes include distressed, antique, wood grain, gloss, metallic, and satin.
Convert your favorite wedding portrait into museum-quality works of art and turn a photo into a painting. Services are available online which can match your order with a qualified artist able to create a beautiful rendition of an original wedding photograph.
Keep this option in your back pocket for weddings in the future. The ability to order paintings from your photos makes for a great gift to give someone you know on their wedding day. Of course, rather than be a picture of the wedding (a little hard to do when it hasn’t happened yet) it can be a photo of the couple on their first date way back when or something along those lines.
Prints on Glass
Wedding photos on glass are beautiful reproductions of your images on a glossy sheet of acrylic glass resistant to UV rays, so the colors don’t fade. Some prints on glass are available with an invisible hanging system that gives the photograph the appearance of floating.
Choose 12 of your favorite images from your wedding day and create a custom calendar to reflect on your special day all year. A photo calendar is a fun way to surprise family and friends at Christmas or as a way to say thank you.
Create a Gallery or Wall Collage
Create a gallery wall with photos of all the memorable moments of your wedding. One way is to make it a collage with mirrors, signs, and photos. If you love vintage decor, arrange black and white images in beautiful silver and gold frames. Create a multi-dimensional effect by layering frames of different sizes. For a traditional look, use frames of the same size and color.
Another way to create a wall display is to make a collage without the frames. Use photos of different sizes and layer them along a wall in your living room or a hallway. Use color or black and white images, or combine the two and cover the entire wall.
Coffee Table Books
A book of wedding photos displayed in a coffee table book is one way for family and friends to enjoy browsing through the images of your wedding day. The photos may be arranged chronologically, or you may add a caption to each image in the book. If you hired a photographer to capture all the events leading up to the wedding, they could be displayed in a similar book.
Create a charming wedding photo montage with frames of different colors, textures, shapes, and sizes to place on the mantel in your living room. If you don’t have a fireplace, a dramatic way to display photos is with a floating shelf.
Social Media Pages
A lot of people share memorable occasions on their social media pages. Creating an album of your favorite images from the wedding and reception is a thoughtful way to share with family and friends who live too far away to be a part of the celebration.
Creating Christmas ornaments with your names and wedding date on them is a wonderful way to share your first Christmas with friends and family by giving them a personalized gift.
Whether it’s images of the wedding itself or photo-based wedding gifts, photography plays a big role in nuptials. But why stop at the images themselves when there is so much more you can do?
