You’ve Been Framed! Creative Ways to Add Frames to Your Wedding

Frames are great for displaying your wedding photos after the event, but there are plenty of great ways to incorporate them into the actual day. By matching the frame style to your theme, all these ideas call all be adapted to country weddings, modern weddings, traditional weddings and more. 

Frame Family Tree – For an outdoor wedding, this couple shown on Snippet and Ink made an actual family tree. Family photos hang from a tree branch, adding decoration and sentimentality.
For a full look, some empty frames are interspersed.

Guest Book – A guest book frame does double duty. It serves as a way to capture well wishes from guests and then becomes a terrific keepsake for displaying a wedding photo in your new home.

Gifts Table – Banners are big right now, but what if you can’t hang things on the walls at your reception site? A frame decorated with colorful ribbons holds up a banner indicating the gift table. 

The Bride Academy shows you how to make this easy DIY project.

Reception Tables – A frame makes a terrific tray to help define your reception centerpiece. You could even insert some colorful scrapbook paper to match your wedding color scheme. 

Or, for a night wedding, a framed mirror underneath some candles would be lovely.

If you are looking for inexpensive frames for decorating your wedding, try your local thrift shop. Even if the frames you find are different styles, by spray painting them all the same color you can create a unified look.

Would you use any of these frame ideas in your wedding?
