A wedding I attended had a slideshow of photos of the bride and groom from childhood through their engagement. It was sweet, but may or may not work with the type of wedding you have in mind.

My Future Sister-In-Law had a bunch of pictures in cute frames that were situated near the cakes and gift tables, it was really cute. You could always buy cheap frames and spraypaint if you wanted a particular look.

I love the idea of using a clothesline to display photos hung by clothespins – very rustic/outdoors type wedding would be perfect for this type of display

Ive also seen where there is a long table with photos just placed flat on the tables for people to look at. The second picture shows how the photos would be displayed and people would look at them (just pretend those escort cards are photos!)

At our wedding, we collected as many wedding photos of our married guests as possible.  We tried to do them secretly when we could (e.g. asked one family member to gather 3 or 4 pictures from their family, or pictures we had from weddings we attended).  Then we printed them all off in 4×6 size and bought frames.  We put 1-2 pictures on every table.  The pictures on the tables were not necessarily the people that were sitting there.  It was by far the most complimented thing we had at our wedding, and people still mention it to me.  We also included some pictures of family members who have passed away (our grandparents’ weddings).  Several people even cried!  We also let these couples take their picture home as a favour.

Oh, and my mom also made one of those display boards with pictures of us growing up and with friends and each other as a surprise.  People loved that too!

@pinkbubblegum – If you wanted to do the clothesline thing, you could always make copies of photos and then superglue them to the clothespins just to be on the “safe side”.

I found pictures of both of our parents with their wedding cakes and framed it and placed it at the cake table.

We used a digital frame to play/display our engagement photos on our guestbook table.

I have been to an outdoor/rustic wedding with the clothesline set up, it was very cute. Could you use them in your venue running along the wall leading from room to room and use some fancy tiny metal or decorative clips? Or if you can rig it up, having a lot of photos hanging from fishing from the ceiling line looks very impressive if it’s in an area that guests can wander through at their leisure (the only good example I can think of is in Taylor Swift’s video ‘Mine‘ at 0:33).
