Your wedding is a special event that should be remembered forever, so it is easy to see why so many couples invest in professional photography. While shocking for couples to learn, luxury photographers can charge up to $10,000 for a wedding package that captures all of your memorable moments. Due to this large investment, it is important to know how to display your wedding portraits. With these tips, you can display your wedding portraits in a classic, yet stylish, manner.
Your portraits were a large investment, so they should be protected by a frame that is attractive and capable of blocking dust and the ultraviolet rays coming in from the windows. Make sure your picture frames offer specialized glass that prevents damage and discoloration from the harmful rays of the sun.
Avoid framing busier photos, such as pictures from your reception, in frames with an ornate design. Elegant scrollwork or whimsical designs will take focus away from a busier photograph. Use simple frames to display eventful photos, such as walking down the aisle, the first kiss, or pictures from the reception. Elegant bridal portraits or traditional bride and groom pictures work best in an ornately designed frame.
To add a personal touch, consider engraving initials or the wedding date into the frame. Many couples are also choosing to engrave lyrics from their first dance song or special sayings or quotes that represent their relationship.
From spreading the frames around different pieces of furniture to hanging on a wall, there are many ways to display your wedding photos. However, more and more couples are choosing to create a gallery wall using multiple framed photos. Here are a few tips to create an elegant gallery wall using your wedding photos:
- Design – For an elegant design gallery, use frames in the same shape and color. If you prefer a more eclectic look, use a combination of frames. Mix black and white frames with whimsical frames in red or blue.
- Accessories – Avoid using only frames in your gallery wall. Consider hanging other decorative accessories on your gallery wall. Clocks, wood signs, and even initials make great accents to your gallery wall of wedding photos.
- Templates – Place your framed photos on a flat piece of craft paper and outline the frames using a marker or pencil. Mark the location of your picture hanging bracket onto the paper, as well. Then, cut out the templates using scissors. Arrange the templates on the wall and hold in place using a piece of tape. Move the templates around until you find a design that appeals to you.
Wedding photography is a large expense, but you can enjoy this important investment by displaying your pictures in a stylish manner. With these display tips, you can enjoy your wedding photos for many years to come.Share
