Like most newlyweds, you are probably looking at your wedding photo album and wondering whether you should enlarge and frame some of the best shots. Why not? There’s always a handful of selected wedding photographs that come out so well that they deserve to be displayed for everyone to see. The key to highlight the brilliance of these images is to put them in beautiful wedding photo frames. But with so many options available, how do you choose that perfect t picture frame for favourite wedding photos? Here are some tips to help you along.
1. Choose a wedding photo frame that matches the room where you will display it.
Is the space a traditional family home with a lot of wood accents? You’ll do well with a wooden wedding picture frame made of oak and other such materials. Wooden frames come in a wide variety of finishes, from natural to dark. You will surely find the perfect hue for your room. Is your home more classic, with crystal chandeliers and a lot of glitzy surfaces? Then go for a silver plated wedding photo frame. You can find them online in minimalist styles or bedecked with swirls insets and sparkling crystals.
2. The frame should complement the wedding photograph.
The frame affects the look and impact of the wedding photo that it holds. It should not detract from the image but should complement it. You want a frame that says to your guests, “This is a wonderful photograph. Look at it."
3. Get the right size.
Most wedding photo frames are bigger than the usual 4x5 frames; after all, wedding photos are meant to be blown up. You’ll find wedding photo frames that can hold either 7x5 or 10x8 photographs. Pay special attention to the size if you are buying online, as it can be hard to tell the how big or small a frame is just from the photos provided by the retailer. Be sure to check the product description for sizing details.
4. You can’t go wrong with engraving.
Have the wedding photo frame engraved with your names as well as the date of your wedding (and even the place where you held the celebrations). You may even engrave a short message or several meaningful words (perhaps from your vows). A tasteful inscription goes a long way in making a frame—and the photo in it—extra special.
