How to Display Wedding Photos in your Home

You’ve received your wedding photographs and you absolutely love them. But now what do you do with them?

Your wedding photos are beautiful. They’re everything you dreamed they would be. And now you want to display them in your home so your family and friends can appreciate them when they come over. You may have got a wedding album included in a package from your photographer, but I’ve come up with some alternative ways you can display wedding photos in your home.

Create a gallery wall

You might be struggling to find just one photo from your wedding day that you love. You love all of them! How do you choose?

Well luckily, you don’t have to. You could create a gallery wall using multiple photos from your day, just like Lauren has done:

Lauren has printed her photos quite large (16″ x 20″) but it’s up to you how many photos you want to incorporate and how you lay them out. You don’t have to do them in a square, and they definitely don’t all have to be the same. Some of your favourites could be printed bigger than others, and you could put them in the centre of your gallery to make them stand out.

You could choose to put them all in the same frames or in different ones. It’s completely up to you. A gallery wall is so versatile and is a great way to showcase your wedding and your personality.

Just make sure you have lots of different photos from different parts of the day so you have a real variety.

Home Accessories

If you wanted to, you could use some of your wedding photographs to decorate your home.

You could have mugs made with your favourite photos on, or have a pillow created for your armchair or bed. There are lots of companies that will print your photos onto a chosen object.

If you’re using multiple photos on one item, just make sure they look right together, for example, check they were taken in the same lighting and include similar colours, otherwise the photos may look odd together.

Use Polaroids

If you’re a fan of polaroids, this is a wonderful option for you and it’s great for people on a budget. You can have your photos printed into ‘Polaroid’ form. Many photograph printers will now do this for you. You can then use the photos to create a Polaroid wall of wedding photos.

This style is great for those who had a more informal/quirky wedding.

Printed Canvas

The final way to display wedding photos at home is with a canvas. Canvases come in many shapes and sizes and can be hung nearly anywhere in your home.
