Chances are you're going to end up with dozens, if not hundreds, of precious photos from your big day. In fact, thanks to your photographer and friend's Instagram snapshots, you may be hard-pressed to narrow down your favorites. But once you've selected your top pictures, don't be shy about showing them off!
The possibilities are endless when it comes to framing your wedding photos. You can dedicate an entire wall in your home with a set of gallery frames, or keep things simple with a classic silver-plated or gold-toned display on a living room accent table. Modern float frames or other minimalist styles are perfect if you're looking for something a little more unexpected. Whatever your style, there's a perfect frame out there to display your treasured memories for years to come.
Read on for the best wedding photo frames.
Anthropologie Mercury Glass Frame
Mercury glass is coated with a silvering formula for a vintage look that’ll perfectly complement your timeless wedding photos. This frame also bears brass and iron detailing and is available in two convenient sizes.
We recommend snagging both to create a multi-layered, deeper look on an entryway table or bedroom dresser.
L’Objet Platinum Garland Frame
Have you ever seen a picture frame so luxurious? This L'Objet display is positively dripping in stunning sparkle, courtesy of 14K gold, platinum, Swarovski crystals, and semi-precious stones.
If that makes it sound like that this is the engagement ring of frames, you'd be right! We love the glamorous, glittering flowers surrounding the snapshot and the fact that this design is available in three different sizes.
Anthropologie Zoe Frame
While a neutral frame is usually best to let your wedding photos truly shine (you don't want it to steal the spotlight), that doesn't mean that you're only stuck with boring displays.
The muted, swirling pattern on this frame creates a stunning, yet subtle, look. The tiles aren't perfectly geometrical, which adds a bit of character, while the gold corners add a touch of glam.
Olivia Riegel Laurel Picture Frame
We love the understated glamour that this Olivia Riegel picture frame brings to the (literal) table. This free-standing easel frame can be displayed either horizontally or vertically and is available in three different sizes.
It also doesn't skimp on the sparkle, thanks to the hand-set European crystals that are fashioned into a pair of pretty plumes encrusting the frame's beveled glass.
HomArt Monroe Horizontal Easel Frame
For an unexpected way to display your wedding photos, look to these industrial-style picture frames. With a border of clear glass and thin brass edging, this geometric style manages to be contemporary without distracting from the beauty of you and your partner on your wedding day. It also features a secure latching mechanism to safely display your precious pics.
Artifact Uprising Floating Frame
Due to their unfussy style, floating frames can fit right into the decor of any room. We especially love them for smaller spaces and studio apartments, where any bit of clutter can make a room seem smaller.
These floating frames keep things open and airy by displaying photos through two clear panes of frame-grade acrylic, clasped by either black or brass bolts. Choose your hardware and your desired frame size (there are ten to pick from!), and then upload your photo of choice. With your pic printed on premium giclée paper, the whole piece arrives at your doorstep fully finished and ready for hanging.
Grace Stone Designs Personalized Picture Frame With Wedding Vows
We know you're going to hold the wedding vows you exchange with your partner in your heart forever. But why not display them right you can see them? You'll be reminded of the tears you shed and smiles you shared at your ceremony every single day! This frame is made to display both a wedding photo, as well as each of your wedding vows.
Just send in your text and photo and it'll be printed on parchment-style card stock, which will then be set inside a double mat and fitted within a rustic wooden frame. With the gift for the first anniversary traditionally being paper, this would make an especially perfect present for celebrating your first year of marriage.
Vera Wang Infinity Double Invitation Frame
We're willing to bet that your wedding photos aren't the only memories you'll want to display from the big day. Your wedding invitations can also serve as a special keepsake. Be sure to hang onto an extra copy when addressing and sending your invites and then after the "I dos" have been said, slip it into this smart silver-plated display, courtesy of iconic designer Vera Wang.
It's two frames in one—on one side you can display your wedding invitation, while the other can be used to show off one of your favorite wedding photos. As if this picture frame wasn't already a registry must-have, it also boasts an elegant knotted design at the top—perfect for the couple who just tied the knot!
Crate and Barrel Brushed Brass Picture Frame Gallery Set
We can’t be the only ones obsessed with those curated gallery walls of artwork and family photos that all of our favorite bloggers seem to have in their homes. Fortunately, you don't need a degree in interior design to pull off the look.
This set of nine frames (in a range of sizes) makes it easy. Available in four different finishes (our fave is the modern brushed brass), the shadow-box frames feature off-white mats—the final look feels pulled together and professional.
Umbra Infinity Single Photo Display Brass Frame
See ya, rectangles. This gold-toned infinity frame makes for a modern desk display with its unexpected circular shape. Your photo floats between two panes of glass, and its budget price tag means that you can buy more than one in varying sizes for a cool layering effect.
Best of all, if you decide you really need to fill that still-bare wall in your bedroom, this frame lets you switch it up: The stand is removable, allowing the frame to be mounted and serve as a beautiful piece of wall art.
Brass Heart Reese Wall Frame
You'll hold the memories of your wedding day in your heart forever—so why not display the photos in one? This heart-shaped picture frame is a unique, romantic way to showcase a small, but significant photo. Bordered with antique-inspired brass, the picture will appear to float between the clear panes of glass, and the frame is finished with a chain for easy hanging.
Pro tip: After displaying all of your favorite wedding photos, snag another one of these frames and sandwich some pretty pressed flowers between the glasses for a sweet and stunning piece of wall decor.
Lenox Silver Peony Acacia Frame
This Italian-made frame is nothing short of stunning. Here, Lenox brings together glass, metal, and wood to create an elegant, polished silver-toned piece that’s perfect for a bedroom dresser or living room accent table.
The standout detail is the pretty peonies adorning the edges. Those floral appliqués add some extra loveliness to this piece and will be especially complementary if you plan to wear a wedding dress that features similar floral detailing.
What to look for in a picture frame
Think about your overall decor style—is your home modern, boho, traditional, or somewhere in between? Consider the wall or table real estate that you want to devote to your photos as well. Some couples like to make a large gallery wall of favorite photos, while others like a more subtle approach and may just select their favorite portrait to display in a special place.
How do you know what size picture frame you need?
It depends on the sizes of your photos and if you want to include a mat (a border that's usually made of cardstock or other lightweight board). The most common photo sizes are 4x6, 5x7, 8x10, 11x14. Most matted frames include guidance on the package with the size of the photo needed for that frame
How do I choose which wedding photos to frame?
You'll likely have dozens, if not hundreds, of amazing photos from your big day. It can be hard to choose which ones to highlight in a frame, whether it's displayed on a wall or a table. Formal portraits of the two of you (or of your larger wedding party and families) are a classic choice.
If you want to be a little more unconventional, look for detail or candid shots—or do a collage of both formal and informal images. And remember, there's always room for more in your wedding photo album!
