Photo album
53% of couples can purchase a photograph album from the wedding photographer that they’ve booked on their day. they can work with the same person to create a stunning timeline of what happened, with input from someone who was there on the day.

Whatever your selections along with your photo album are, this is a great way to display the very best number of your wedding photos at once. A custom-made album, printed design or design with text around it are all nice choices for displaying the story of your wedding day.

Give your photo album a shocking cover to use as a coffee table or display centrepiece in your home. Your friends and family will love looking at it next time they come for a visit!

Framed or canvas wall display
Another traditional choice is to show a bunch of photos in a display on your walls. fashionable choices for wall displays include separate frames set up in a pattern or symmetrical display. you could do the same with canvas prints if you like the unframed aesthetic.

Play around with different styling choices to make something a bit more distinctive to your display. Have a stunning image where you and your spouse are offset to the side? Split it into a three-feature canvas for a unique design.

Quirky shelf display
We’re coming up to the last of the truly traditional display options here and that is, of course, displaying your pictures on a shelf. If a wall display is all about symmetry then a shelf display is about organized asymmetry.

Print your images in different sizes and displays (both portrait and landscape) to mix your display up a bit. you could even opt for mismatched frames to add a small amount of quirkiness to your display if your house runs a bit more eclectic.


Thank you cards
What better way to share some of your favorite wedding pictures along with your nearest and beloved than by including them in your thank you cards? Have a single image or a collage designed into a postcard-sized thank you note that you will send out after the event. Not only does it get your thank you cards out of the way, but your friends and family can display the photo in their own homes as well.

Don’t forget to keep one for yourselves so you can display it on the fridge!

Guest book
If you’re having a photo booth then an ideal way to display all of these pictures, and more, is through your guest book. You already have your guests contributing advice and fun notes in your guest book, so why not include some of the visuals from the night as well?

Depending on what type of style you’re searching for you could have your guests add their pictures from your photo booth on the night. Or leave sections for photos to go in when your guest book is empty so that you can add them after the fact.

That way you’ll be able to look at your photos and reminisce on the memories and fun of the night at the same time.

Old window frame
If you’re a lover of the wall display but wish to mix it up a bit then go down the rustic and bohemian look with a window frame display. you can choose several images to show at once or split one image up through the frame for a more unique look.

Paint or strip the frame back to fit your decor needs and consider printing your photos in black and white to add to that vintage feel.

Take your wedding with you everywhere you go along with a photograph locket, bracelet or brooch. Your photo may be small however that doesn’t mean that it’s less meaningful.

Wooden or stone transfer
While they’re no longer as popular, wooden and stone prints could be due for a comeback with the rise of bohemian and beach home ornament. If you’re not comfortable with some DIY design then think about booking someone to do this for you. an outdoor photo or photo in nature could be perfect for this design.

It will make for a quirky show piece in your home while including pieces of 1 of the best days of your life
