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.
Or, you take the reigns and absolutely hold onto them the whole way through, injecting yourself into every part of that wedding so all of your guests know how deliciously creative and unique you are.
Display Rugs in Your Hallway or Foyer Hand-loomed carpets instantly elevate your cocktail lounge area or make for a boho-style aisle at your reception. They also, obviously, work well at home! If you plan to include rugs into your wedding decor, consider adding them to your hallway or foyer. We especially love when couples exchange vows standing on a special carpet, then add the sentimental floor covering to their bedroom or hang as a tapestry—and memory—in their living room.
