@newcitylights:  Do you have any sort of entrance hall or foyer at the ceremony or reception venue?

You could display them on the walls framed in simple Ribba frames from Ikea starting with your meeting close to the door, then progressing to the most recent pic. You could even print a last minute one from the rehearsal dinner.

You could use a quote:

“One’s not half of two; two are halves of one.”

I like the idea of having a “picture journey.” I would cluster the ones from when you first met together then space out the other ones by time.

what about hanging them clothes-line style near the cake or the gift table or something?

@newcitylights:  I think they would be great in the cocktail area. Guests can mix and mingle and discuss the pictures.

You could go to Staples and get Engineer’s prints done. These are huge prints on really thin paper that you can then attach to foam core sheets with spray adhesive. The prints are very inexpensive- from $3-$7.
