Ideas To Include Your Old Pictures Into Your DIY Wedding Decor

BY Sakshi | 30 Jul, 2016 | 3303 views | 5 min read

With micro wedding being all about DIYs, there's this one trend that is slowly moving back to the wedding circuit - Cutesy Polaroid Photo Decor. But how do you display wedding photos? While we already have to cut short of decor ideas when it comes to home weddings (because of budget, space, etc), photos to display at a wedding not only adds a personal touch but also offer an intimate experience! After all, what's the point of clicking all of the selfies if you cant flaunt 'em right?

It looks adorable and also makes a lot of sense especially if you've been dating for ages and have gone through a lot of 'looks' and 'phases' together! A trip down nostalgia lane, maybe?

Here are some amazing photo display ideas we spotted off late, so if you're planning to personalise your intimate wedding with photos, then get some inspiration here. Get, set, and pin!

1. Using Wooden Palette

Wooden palettes can be made into all sorts of things, and hence, it's a great investment when it comes to intimate weddings. This wedding photo display idea screams minimalism and looks super adorable. Add your fav quote to it, and you're sorted!

2. Origami Is Your Best Friend

Talk about DIY weddings and the first word that comes to everyone's mind is Origami. And by adding a photo to that paper plane you eventually add a missing personalised touch to your self-done decor.

3. Try It As A Welcome Board

Aren't we all bored with those traditional, text-based boards? This one with photos is definitely as fresh as daisies.

4. In case You're Wondering "How Do I Show Lots Of Photos"?

Clearly, one of our fav photos to display at wedding ideas. All you need is a roll of jute string, glass jars, and some carnations to create a photo backdrop like this one! Ain't this super stunning?

5. Clip Them To A Bunting

No mood for a wedding memory board? Clip them to the existing decor, like a bunting, for that fun vibe!

6. A Tree Display!

How cool is this idea? Most people use trees in outdoor weddings to hang lights, but a photo tree looks so amazing! Such a smart use of space!

7. On Your Wishing Tree!

Instead of hanging photos from a huge real tree, you can also place and deck up a dry one on your own using ribbons, lights, hanging floral arrangements and Christmas tree decorations! This couple from Bangalore made this wishing tree for the guests to leave messages for them on post-it notes! How cute is that?

8. A Refreshing Corner Display

This one has just one picture as a part of a corner display, but it still looks so pretty! The white furniture adds a vintage look, and the oranges and herbs just add the right pop of colour! Simple, yet so effective!

9. As An Elaborate Display Piece

If you're looking for something a bit elaborate, then this is a good idea! Set up an eye-catching display with lots of pictures on a stand, and add some elements like fairy lights, cute little planters and bird cages for added awesomeness!

10. With Hanging Photo Frames

Just suspend some cute little framed photos with coloured string and you have a hanging photo wall, which is just as easy to do outdoors as well!

11. With A String & Wooden Cloth Pegs

Probably the easiest way to put them, which involves hanging ropes or strings and attaching the printed photos with cloth pegs. Super easy to DIY, but looks cute at the same time! You can choose to have just a few strings or an entire wall like this one!

12. A Table Display

This is also a simple wedding decoration idea, which still looks pretty classy and timeless! Use some cute frames and place them on a table. Decorate around it with some vases, vintage pieces and a cute monogram like this one to make it attractive!

13. As A Part Of The Centrepiece

If you have a round table set up, then this is another idea you guys can consider. Have them placed in frames or just place little polaroid photos, looks cute either way!

14. Add Flowers To Make It Pop

Decorators' favorite - Put them up and embed them nicely between your flower curtains - sweet and a nice surprise for your guests. Plus, they look super pretty!
