Hi girls! I need creative ideas (cheap!) for decorating a wall of random sized cutouts that is in my venue. I am going for a vintage-glam feel and our colors are deep plum/eggplantish and mercury (darker then silver but lighter then pewter). I was origionally thinking of different sized baroque frames with black and white pictures of us, but I think that would be a bit pricy and I am on an extreamly tight budget. I attached a picture of the wall (the dj stuff won’t be set up there)… ANY ideas would be helpful.

Also an idea for frames: THRIFT STORES!! I have found gorgeous frames for $1 or less each time. It might take a few trips to a few different stores, but I bet you could find them.
I would mix your ideas together– the frames and vases– to create a unique look.

I totally third the frame idea and say go to a Dollar Store and spray paint some frames!

I think the picture frames would look great but the cost can add up even for inexpensive frames.
1. You could cut foamcore to the exact size of the opening and spary paint it the color of your choice. Spray glue the back of a copy of your favorite pics and center it on the foamcore. Slide it into the opning – push it right to the back.
2. If you are allowed to use candles, you could place a votive candle in each niche.
3. You could use a simple vase with the same gorgeous flower in each niche.

@texmax:One thing I forgot to add, We aren’t allowed to use candles because our ceremony/reception is on the roof of a hotel so it’s a big liability. Thank you!

Definitely check out the thrift stores. I bought a big frame for less than $5. I’m just going to buy some spray paint and paint it in one of my wedding colors. I plan on doing the same for smaller frames to put on the guest table! I think you could totally pull it off if you’re willing to do some digging around!

I liked the fancy frame idea, and definitely hit the thrift stores, dollar stores & home decor stores! Look online for coupons as well for the home decor stores- those can really help! You may not be allowed to have REAL candles, but how about the electronic flickering votives? No real flame, but you’d still get the romantic glow.
