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 friends' 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.
To help you find the right options for you, we've researched the best photo frames available—keeping style, size, and overall quality in mind. For something simple yet elegant, we love the Anthropologie Mercury Glass Frame and the Artifact Uprising Floating Frames. Looking for an extra special frame to display your favorite photos? Go for the Vera Wang Vera Infinity Double Invitation Frame or the Parsimonia Designs Wedding Vows Frame.
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 three convenient sizes. We recommend snagging two or more to create a multi-layered, deeper look on an entryway table or bedroom dresser.

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.

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 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.

Artifact Uprising Floating Frames
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, then upload your photo of your choice. With your pic printed on premium giclée paper, the whole piece arrives at your doorstep fully finished and ready for hanging.

What To Look for in a Picture Frame
Decor Style and Space
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 size 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, and 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!
