6 Creative Ways to Display Photos at Your Wedding

If you’re interested in infusing your personality and memories into every aspect of your special day, don’t miss these incredibly creative ways to display photos at wedding. It’s time to think beyond the traditional cluster of frames positioned on a table and try one of these unique ideas instead.

After all, you don’t want your wedding to be average or run of the mill, do you? Since family photos make great (and oftentimes inexpensive) DIY wedding décor, feel free to display them at both your ceremony and reception to add instant warmth to any space.

You can also utilize both sentimental photos, such as a tribute to deceased loved ones, and more lighthearted snaps, such as the outtakes from your engagement session. Whatever tone you decide to take, these creative wedding photo displays and ideas are ideal for showcasing special moments in time.

Wedding Photo Centerpieces

One of the easiest ways to incorporate special photos on your wedding day is through your centerpieces. Guests will certainly take note of your table decorations so you don’t need to worry about your snapshots being overlooked or lost in the shuffle.

With so many different DIY options for frames, you can really let your creativity shine and create a beautiful cluster of photos for your wedding centerpieces. Plus, incorporating pictures is a much more budget-friendly option than adorning all of your reception tables with elaborate floral centerpieces.

Hiring a professional florist to create multiple arrangements can quickly add up, so photo centerpieces are a great way to save a few pennies without sacrificing style or substance.

Photo Bouquet/Boutonniere Charms

The idea of carrying your “something old” with you as you walk down the aisle is incredibly heartwarming and sentimental. Some brides choose to wrap a special piece of fabric or ribbon around the stem of their bouquet, while others opt for a photo charm.

These dainty charms are a great way to hold deceased loved ones close to your heart and they make a touching photo op prior to your ceremony. If a professional florist is creating your bouquet, you can give him or her the charm ahead of time to affix to the arrangement. If you’re creating your own bouquet, you can simply affix the charm on your own.

Keep in mind this sweet gesture is not only limited to the ladies! Men can add a special photo to their boutonniere or create custom cufflinks to wear on the big day. If you choose to go the cufflinks route, your husband-to-be can also wear them after the wedding.

Hanging Photo Displays

To add some height to your wedding day décor, why not try one of these elevated photo displays? So often only tables are considered, but if your venue has a particularly high ceiling or you’re throwing an outdoor soiree, it’s a great idea to utilize those unique elements to create unexpected photo displays.

For outdoor spaces, you may want to consider hanging photos from tree branches or creating multiple photo banners/garlands and hanging them like string lights. This type of DIY wedding craft will instantly add an unexpected and cozy element to your venue.

Plus, guests will love being able to look up and marvel at all your family photos as they mix and mingle during cocktail hour. Talk about an instant conversation starter!

Family Photo Table Numbers

Another opportunity to let your creativity shine is through your table numbers. There’s no rule saying you need to identify your tables numerically. Instead, you can take advantage of a creative way to display photos and include a special family snapshot or two on each table.

You can even name your tables after the people who appear in the photos or after the locations where the photos were taken. Your friends and family members will love locating their seat via this method and they will also love seeing so many smiling faces decorating the center of each table.

Photo Guest Book

Your wedding guest book is the perfect way to remember everyone who attended your special day. Although many people choose to go the traditional route when it comes to guest books, more and more couples are opting to express their creativity in unique ways.

If you’re planning to have a photo booth at your wedding, why not have guests paste a copy of the photo strip into a book and write a sweet message beside it? This type of wedding guest book does double duty – you’re able to save everyone’s funny pictures of the night while also receiving a host of well wishes from those you love most.

For my wedding, my husband and I put together a special display with photos of our grandparents and parents on their wedding day. It was a really nice touch.
