Do you mean a frame specifically or a framed mat?  A framed mat would be pretty easy to DIY.  You can just buy a large frame and a mat that fits in it (perhaps make sure the mat has a smooth texture, as it would be easier to sign, i think).  Then print out something to put in it (if you’re not framing a picture right away) that maybe says your names and wedding date.  I think, as far as the glass from the frame, you should perhaps put that behind the mat, in front of the photo/sign?  This way the mat won’t be loose in the frame without the glass in it.

I haven’t made one, but I did price it out and it would have been approximately the same price to buy the materials to make one as it would be to buy one from BB&B (I like theirs) and I ended up with a gift card and they continually put out coupons for $5 off $20 or whatever. I looked at Michael’s though when I was looking at DIYing it.

I actually bought mine on sale at Michael’s for $18.  It was 40% off.  If its not a sale week just use of of those 40% off coupons they print on the receipt – may be cheaper than buying the materieals.
