Displaying photographs at your wedding reception is a simple, cost effective way to add personality and a little extra-personal touch. 

If you and your partner have known each other for a long time, show your story through the years in pictures. Ensure you get the cringe-worthy old photos out – your guests will love seeing you back in the day as youngsters. 

A cute idea is to display photos of you and your partner as babies and children – this will get all your aunts cooing! This can be an especially nice touch if you both have siblings, as you can use photos with your brothers and sisters in too, showing the two families which will be uniting on your wedding day.

Display photographs of your parents and your grandparents on their wedding day; a lovely way to celebrate the successful marriages which have come before yours and a lovely excuse for your parents to dig out and look through their old photos and wedding album.

Pay tribute to lost loved ones on your wedding day with a display of their photos.

All of these ideas are also a great way to decorate a hen party, baby shower or a special birthday.

I’ve got the world on a string

Photographs are very light to pack if you’re jetting off for a destination wedding. Simply buy sweet little pegs and string like the ones shown below from stores such as John Lewis or Paperchase and string them up at your reception venue. Be careful where you hang pictures if you are getting married abroad – bright sunlight can damage your photographs.

You’ve been framed

Hang framed photos up with coloured ribbon which matches in with your wedding day theme to create maximum impact, or make a special display table with photos and your guest book.

If you’re having a destination wedding, your wedding planner may be able to help with sourcing frames for you, otherwise take lighter photo holders like these or pack a few lightweight photo frames.

Lets face it

Bring your wedding tables to life by using photos of each of your guests on the tables or on the guests table name place settings.

We love having a nosey at other peoples photographs, so we love all of these ideas! It’s nice for your guests to have fun things to look at as they arrive at your venue and it creates a good talking point too.

We especially love the idea of showing photographs of you and your partner as a younger couple – we know you all have some great cheesy pics from when you first starting dating!
