The Made To Order Photo Frames Guide To Wedding Presents

The made to order photo frames guide to wedding presents

It’s coming up to wedding season, and we are getting lots of orders for made to order photo frames as people love to give them as wedding presents. 

If you have a friend or family member who is getting married, and you want to give them something more personal than just some cash slipped into a card. Or, you are the bride or groom and are looking for a memorable way to commemorate your big day read on. We have lots of great ideas for meaningful ways you can use custom size frames online:

If you are a wedding guest, some ideas are:

#1 Create a personalised collage photo frame

A personalised collage is a classic present, for all the right reasons – a truly personal and bespoke gift that everyone will love. Collect photos of the bride and groom through the years, from when they were small or just pictures of them together as a couple. Then compile them into a photo frame. 

You could go for a theme, such as trips that they have taken together, their engagement or even their wedding day – or go all the way back to the start of it all and ask their parents for baby pictures. Very cute!

#2 Frame the ‘Save the Date’ or Wedding Invitation

This is a really budget friendly idea, but it is also really cute. Many time’s the happy couple will order enough ‘Save the Date’ or Wedding Invitations for their guests, but forget to include one for themselves. 

Mount the invitation on top of a colourful envelope in a stylish frame, keeping their wedding colours in mind – and they will be really touched.

#3 Frame their New Name or New Home

Quite often when people get married it means one of them changes their name, or they buy a new home together – or even both.

There are lots of great artists out there who you can commission a custom painting or drawing of the couple’s new home – or even a great photograph. Or you could celebrate this next step in the couple’s life by commissioning someone to produce a sign that bear’s their surname – and frame that. If you’re a whizz at calligraphy you could even do it yourself!

If you are the Bride or Groom

If you are going to be the newlywed, then there are lots of great ways you can commemorate your wedding day, in a way your other half will love. There will be lots of things you can collect on your wedding day to frame, and you can put a personal twist on each one. 

#1 Framed Photos

Have the photos from your wedding day printed in archival inks which will not fade, pick a custom frame made to your specifications, and then choose the mount that most suits your needs. This is also a great way to start a gallery wall as well – the moment the bride starts down the ailse, the first time the bride and groom see each other, your first kiss, the first dance – so many magical moments.

#2 Frame your First Dance song  

We love this idea, and your partner is sure too as well. Spend some time tracking down the original album your first dance song was featured on and have it framed. Genius. 

You could even go one step further and add a little plaque with your names and wedding date, song title or whatever you like.

#3 Frame your Menu, Playlist or Vows

Weddings tend to come with lots of paper – especially during the planning phase, so why let all that hard work go to waste? Frame your dinner menu, or the playlist you pulled together for the DJ, or even the vows you wrote that made your other half cry. Then sit back and look at the result of your work.

#4 Don’t forget your Anniversary

The traditional gift for five years of marriage is wood – and what better way to celebrate it than with an unseen photo of your wedding day in a custom wooden frame. 

So now we’ve convinced you of how great giving a custom framed photo can be as a wedding present, let’s take a look at how to get the photo’s you need to fill these frames. 

#1 Before the big day
