A lot of us think "I can do that, why have someone else do it for me?" What are some of the things that are actually do-able versus those that are ill-advised? Since this topic has many options, we'll start with one or two and really focus on those.
1. Create a display for your family photos.
Many couples like to show their parents wedding pictures as well as grandparents. Along with those the couple may also include images from their engagement session and snap shots of trips they've taken etc.
The most common way to display them is with photo frames on a table. If you do this think of a way to add some height to certain frames so they are easy to see. A more unique idea is below and of course, comes courtesy of our craft lady, Martha. Check here for the full description on how to do it. Once the frames are made, you can pick a spot to hang them at your reception site.
Cork or magnetic boards are another idea I love. Fill the boards with images from edge to edge with them overlapping to create a collage look. The curved edges give this board from Umbra a modern look. Hang them in a grid of four or three across.
Umbra really has great ways to display photos, I love many of their designs and are all at a great price. I have the photo tree in the my studio and love it! Here is a mini table top version from them that would attract attention. Go to their website for more great ideas: Umbra.
Hopefully this has started your wheels turning for an easy DIY project for your reception. We'll be adding more to this topic throughout the year. Have a great weekend!
