There was such an amazing response to our “I do…” wedding and after wedding blogs that we thought we should do just one more post for all you wedding planners and lovers! This time we’ve gathered some fun ideas using frames for the people with whom you wouldn’t want to walk down the aisle without - your beloved wedding party!
Asking a friend or family member to be part of your wedding party is a big deal and has taken on an impressive need to be original, sentimental and encourage a yes! When I was getting married, a simple question was all that was needed but now it has become a much larger step in wedding planning. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!
Frames make things special. If you take the time to frame it, then it’s important. So frame up the important question of “Will you be my bridesmaid/groomsman?” to show how much these people mean to you. You can either add photos of memories that you’ve shared, frame inspiring words or keep it simple with a personalized question.
Now comes the fun stuff! Your bachelor(ette) party! Everything went by so fast on my wedding no matter how much I tried to cling to the moments. Capturing every memory is something that you’ll be thankful for after the whirlwind is over. For my sister’s bachelorette, I had all the ladies kiss a mat with freshly applied lipstick, leaving a space for the perfect picture from our wild night! Such a great memory!
Another cute keepsake idea from this night is to have the wedding party pose for a mug shot on the morning after. Guaranteed laughter for years to come as the party looks at their framed shots and remember the hilarious times and stories from your bachelorette/bachelor party!
With every wedding I’ve gone to, when it comes to the wedding party, guests naturally wonder who everyone is and how they know the bride or groom. Avoid this repetitive question and highlight your prestigious group with an introductory picture and short description. This wedding party display makes it easy on the guests and party and adds a personal touch to your décor.
I’m a true sentimental and I love the idea of putting a timestamp on a moment and getting people involved in unique ways to make memories. A sure way to unite the group is to paint a canvas together. The bride, groom and each person in the wedding party create a single painted masterpiece that you can frame up and keep forever. This can either be done on your wedding day as part of the ceremony or at a gathering leading up to your big day to help break the ice when everyone meets.
Photos, photos and more photos! Pictures are a given when it comes to weddings. And finding ways to get your party involved in some spectacular shots are a must! These two poses will show off your bridesmaids or groomsmen perfectly. The one on the right shows the party holding up signs with how they met the bride. Such a fun idea!
After it’s all said and done a thank you to your wonderful wedding party is in order. As mentioned above, if you take the time to frame it then it’s important so follow that advice with your thank yous. A personal thank you note that is framed will remind your friend or family member that they hold a special place in your heart. Adding a piece of jewelry if your budget allows looks impressive in a frame!
