Your wedding day is not only a special moment in your life; it also marks the culmination of love and support from family and friends leading up to that wonderful point. I love the idea of honoring those cherished bonds and loving influences by showcasing a collection of family/friend photos at the reception.
A picture display lets your guests reminisce about the special part they’ve played in your lives, helping to bring you and your future hubby together in some way, directly or indirectly. This lovely decorative detail doesn’t have to be elaborate or expensive – in fact, mismatched frames can be completely charming, giving the display a homey, authentic feel.
Some couples also display wedding photos from other beloved family members – parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. I love the way this idea connects the older family guests to the celebration, and it’ll certainly lead to some entertaining conversation starters!

You all know I can’t resist a good woodsy wedding. Loving that guests take a trip down Memory Lane on their way to the ceremony!
