I have no clue what this thread should be under, but here goes.
Im thinking ahead. How am I going to give pictures of the wedding to our families? I saw how my FSIL did hers. A pic, then red(her wedding color) paper beneath the pic, just big enough to look like a border and then a piece of black paper beneath all of that, that takes up the whole frame. Hope I explained it okay.
Anyway, I LOVE that but I really dont want to copy her or anyone else in the two families.
So Im looking for other ideas. How are u giving wedding pics to the two families? I would really like to do this, but I need fresh ideas.
FYI, it will only be a couple pics(the formal ones) for each father,mother,sibling,etc. Not alot at all.

maybe get them put on small canvases so the families can hang them like small paintings 🙂
or if you have any extra invites, you could use bits of them as borders around the photo in a frame 🙂

@Jacqui90: Oh yeah I like that! I even saw a website that does it. Now if I can just find the website. 🙂

I think it would be okay if they matched, or were similar. that way if they are in the same place, they will match ( same wall at your ILs house)

It’s not unusual to have a framed picture with paper around it. That’s what people mean when they say framed and matted. It’s not really something that you could be considered copying.
In fact, the parents-in-law might appreciate having similar style pictures to display together to make ther decorating look tied together.
If you really want something different, you can always get small albums printed up from any number of places online.

I prefer unmatted pictures, so I would just buy a nice frame and put the picture in it and gift it as a package.

@friedicecream: I agree, matting a picture is not a novel idea, and I don’t think it would be considered “copying” to do the same. Besides, you could choose a different color border & different frame.

@Earlybride: Matting a picture isn’t copying. Most nice photographs look a million times better matted, that’s like saying you copied her by getting married 😉
