Wedding Photo Display Ideas

When it comes to displaying wedding photos, a standard poster-sized print of the bride and groom does not do justice to the cost and effort of the wedding planning and execution. As you plan to display the images from your big day, choose a selection of images that will create a representation of the people, the location and the small elements that made your wedding meaningful and personal.

  1. Folding Screen

    • If you have a folding screen, you can create an unusual and attractive way to display a variety of wedding photos. Start with a screen, either in a print or solid color, and staple lengths of elastic under the frame. Arrange the strips diagonally so they form a diamond pattern across the screen; for extra holding power, weave the strips. Staple one side of the elastic to one side of the frame and pull tightly enough so that it is taught, but not so tightly that it pulls out of the staple. Trim the ends and tuck photos behind the elastic to hold them in place. With this type of display, candid wedding photos work well; arrange a selection from the ceremony and the reception to create an overview of the entire wedding day.

    Salvaged Windows

    • Using salvaged or antique windows, you can create a unique and creative frame for your wedding photos. Look for windows that still have their wooden frame, preferably ones with multiple panes of glass or framing that creates individual rectangles on a single glass panel. Turn the window over so the back is facing up and line up photos on the back, using the individual frames as guidelines; tape the photos down to keep them in place. For the best effect with this type of photo display, use photos that do not have a great deal of detail to avoid an overwhelming look.

    Multiple Frames

    • Instead of using a single large wedding photo, create a wall display using frames in different sizes. Choose frames of the same style and finish for a cohesive display or frames in varying styles for a shabby-chic look. Put a formal couple shot in the largest frame to use as the central piece, and choose photos of the wedding party, family and reception for the smaller frames. To communicate the atmosphere and decor of the wedding, include a few artistic photos of details like bouquets, table settings or other elements. Arrange the photos on the wall with the largest photo in the center, placing the other frames at offset angles.
