We are setting out frames, but also attaching pictures to ribbon and hanging them from the ceiling so they drop down, we are hanging them behind our gift table and guest book table so they almost create a back drop

We’re just using a digital picture frame set up on the guestbook table.

I’ve seen photos pinned (even clothespinned) to a ribbon swag or some kind of rope/string.

Kind of like this, but with prettier materials: [attachment=799702,101446]

We just hung about 30 or so old photos of my hubby and I on a manzanita tree to match the trees on our dinner tables.

Not sure what they’re called, but there’s some sort of magnetic system for displaying photos as well – basically long strings with weights on the end to keep them straight, you hang them from the ceiling or against the wall, and you use tiny magnets to hold photos to them.  They’re nice because you don’t have to cut holes in photos to hang them.  If you don’t have much space you could do this above a table.

I actually had a projector screen that posted pic’s up of us all night. Also on my cake table I had 2 picture frames & by the bar there was also some frames there.

Did you ever use that idea of the room divder to display photos? I am thinking about that for my wedding next month but am not sure where to find a good one for that purpose.

I’m doing this, but I’m doing photos of us with those that will be at the wedding. So, a pic or two of me with my Mom, with my cousin, etc…Fiance with his best friend since he was about 12.

I think I am either putting mine on a small table to the side, with a card box and maybe a dish of candies or something…or I am going to scatter them on the table we are dining at.

I think a projector is a good idea. make a slide show with your childhood pics and engagement pics together. Maybe add along a song of your choice and display after cutting the cake or duing your first dance.
