4 Ways to Use Photo Prints In Your Wedding Décor

Last Updated: June 15, 2017

Weddings are all about celebrating your love. No matter how long you've been a couple, you likely have plenty of cute photos together. And what better opportunity to share them than your wedding day?

Check out these 4 ways to include photo prints into your wedding décor from the Costco Photo Center to let all your guests enjoy each special moment. 

1. Centerpieces & Table Numbers

When it comes to table centerpieces, you can creatively express your wedding style. To save your guests from confusion—table numbers are essential at the wedding reception. Here are a few ways to create table numbers with photo prints:

  • For consistency across each table, use photos from your engagement photo shoot
  • For some history, use a variety of photos that display the milestones of your relationship
  • For fun throwbacks, name your tables as specific years and include photos of you or your fiancé that were taken in that year—guests will love the touch of nostalgia

2. Guest Book

A growing trend is to replace the traditional guest book with a photo guest book. Track down a polaroid camera and a nice wide-page journal to set up on the guest table. When guests arrive they can snap an instant photo of themselves, tape it into the book and add a written message. Your wedding guest book will be far more entertaining and meaningful when it’s filled with the smiling faces of your friends and loved ones.  

3. Wish You Were Here

Nothing compares to having all your loved ones present on your wedding day, but you can honor their memory in a heartfelt way with photos. Incorporate a meaningful photo display into your wedding décor by framing old photos of family members who've passed away and adding a warm sentiment or poem on a sign. Remember, Costco offers a Pro Photo Repair service to retouch and print old photos in all of their former glory. If you have some nice digital photos to include you can even skip the frame and create custom photo plaques

4. Love is a Treat 

Make your dessert table even sweeter with an eye-catching collage of photo prints in the shape of a heart. Dig through the digital archives of your relationship (your social media page, most likely) and pick out all your favorite photos together. Print them in black and white and affix them to a pane of glass, a wooden backdrop, or directly to the wall of your wedding reception space for a display that will leave your guests lingering. 

All the beautiful photos taken at your wedding mark the day that your marriage began. By decorating your wedding venue with personal photo prints, you’re celebrating all the days that brought you there.
