Every bride can relate to the insane anticipation and excitement of the day when the wedding photos are ready. You pour over every image and relive your favourite moments from the best day of your life. Most of us would like to print out every single image and plaster them from wall to wall in the home, but unfortunately not everyone is as obsessed with your wedding photos as you are. So how can you show off your wedding pictures without friends and family screaming, “Alright already!”? Keep reading for a few creative ideas that will help you show off your favourite wedding photos without seeming like a self-obsessed bride.
Photo Postcards for “Thank-Yous”
One creative way to show off some of your favorite wedding pictures post-wedding day is to use your favorite images as thank you cards. You’ll likely be getting loads of gift from guests, and it is always nice to thank people for making the effort to come to your wedding. Cards with photos provide a more personal touch that is missing from many thank you cards sent out after weddings. You can have them printed up like postcards and write your message on the back, or pick more traditional cards that use your photo as a cover design. Another advantage of using wedding photos is that they make good keepsakes for guests who want to remember the occasion.

Coffee Table Book
As you and your spouse move in together and start a new house, you’ll definitely want to have some of your best photos from the wedding on display. However, it can be overwhelming to plaster wedding pictures all over the house, and will start to feel a little redundant. You can easily memorialize the wedding day by putting together a scrapbook that sits out on your coffee table. This will allow guests to admire your cherished photos from the wedding, and you can even leave the book open on the table—displaying a new page every once and a while.

With the widespread use of social media, many couples are utilizing hashtags and social networking in order to show off their favorite wedding photos. Create a hashtag for the wedding day and ask friends and family to tag their photos using the hashtag. They can post photos on Instagram or Twitter of the ceremony, reception, or any special moments throughout the day using the hashtag you’ve created. Allow all your guests to get in on the fun by including the designated hashtag on your announcements, or write out the hashtag on a chalkboard so guests can see it as they enter the festivities.

Of course you’ll want a few wedding pictures displayed around the house, but sometimes you might feel like your décor is a shrine to the wedding—a look you definitely want to avoid. You can easily create a tasteful display by using one wall to show off a few of the best photos from the big day. One popular trend is to turn your favorite wedding photos into a custom canvas photo collage in order to add dimension and texture to the display of images. These canvas prints can be interspersed with quotes, wall letters, and even keepsakes from the wedding to create the perfect wedding collage that celebrates your special day.
