Picking the Best PhotosYou likely had (or plan to have) a professional photographer to take pictures at your wedding. In that

You could also pick a series of photos which tell a story. You could also use stylized initial letters or dates (date of the wedding, the day that you met and so on). And don’t hesitate to add photos not related to the wedding – the bride or groom as a baby and then at the altar.
Another idea: how about creating a photo canvas out of your wedding vows? Especially, if you wrote them yourself! You could play around with textures, borders, filters, and tints (i.e. monochrome, sepia) as well. You could even break one image up into several parts, and print them out in parts, and then place them in the correct sequence on the wall to create a jigsaw like effect.
How to Make a DIY Wedding Photo CanvasYou will need:
- Blank canvases (check out these specially-priced canvas, cloth and fabric canvases here)
- The photos you’ve picked out (consider larger sizes or magnify one portion of a photo) in the shape of the canvas you plan to use
- Mod Podge (matte finish)
- Craft scissors or knife
- Brushes (paint brush, foam brush and so on)
- Black acrylic paint
- Sand paper

Position your canvases on walls, doors, or other strategic locations such as the side of your staircase etc. Consider creating a collage of canvases on your wall. This can be a series that tells a story or a collection of pictures in a shape of your choice. For example, a large heart shape, one central photo with several smaller ones on the side and so on.
