Add Family Photos to Your Gallery Wall If you created a special altar to honor your family members, take these framed photos home and add them to your mantle or gallery wall. Invest in silver frames or some that match your home decor for an easy transition. If the photos are already framed, take them as they are to your wedding—talk about a quick cash savings! “Bringing the photos from home in their original frames usually works very well,” explains Laura Irizarry-Garcia of LIG Events. “Guests love looking at them, and its a great way to include those family members who might not be with you any longer.
The trick is to think ahead and choose decor for your wedding that you would also like in your living room or on your patio. For some upcycling inspirations, here are some of our favorite ways to give decor life long after your first dance.
Everything from welcome signs to menus to seating charts can be made using clear acrylic to give your wedding the minimalist vibe that you wouldnt be able to achieve by just shopping in Tiger. There are a good few bits for sale over on Etsy that you can order with your personalised text.
