One of the least expensive and most fun projects we did to personalize and decorate our space for the wedding was the photos on our guest book table. Here is what it looked like:
What we did was get wedding photos of as many of our guests as we could - our aunts, uncles, great aunts and uncles, grandparents, parents and friends. Sometimes this meant calling the kids of our parents' friends and asking them to secretly scan and email us the pic. For a lot of them, our Moms had copies of pictures that we made copies of and used. Everyone was completely surprised by this, and it was fun to show weddings of all styles and decades and highlight the amazing tradition of weddings.
To make them, we copied pictures at a drug store very inexpensively (no using originals, just in case) and bought a bunch of $1 frames at Dollarama - mixed colours and styles - and spray painted them all the same antique gold.
Here are a few of the pics I had scanned copies of:
