We are getting married 1600 miles away and would like to have a picture mat for people to sign which will either be in, or put in, a frame. Depending what we decide. Our dilemma is, it might be a pain in the bum to ship a 16×20++ frame to our home 1600 miles away. It will be less expensive to just ship the mat.
But…… is it going to look really dumb to just have a mat there for people to sign, without a frame? I’d love to have our frame there because it looks nice but it might cost us a whole lot to ship back- and my fiance thinks it’ll be hard for people to sign something IN a frame?
Any thoughts hive? Thank you! =:)

I am also thinking about having a mat, but we are local so we are going to have the frame up with one of our engagement pictures in it, and then change it out with a group shot when we get our wedding pictures back.
I don’t think it will look silly, but maybe take a picture of the frame you are going to use with the unsigned mat and maybe and engagement picture in it and have that picture put in a small frame with a sign that says something like: “Please sign our mat so we can add it to our picture frame when we get home.”

We did not have a frame set up with ours. People understood the purpose just fine and we didn’t have to worry about fingerprints on our picture or frame.

i like noritake22’s idea of taking a picture of it in a frame with a pic & the sign
I don’t think it’d be a problem. I’d make a cute sign asking to sign the matte so you can keep the memory of them celebrating your wedding years to come.

We won’t have a frame for ours. The woman who helped us suggested we opt not to bring the frame because she’s had people come back with frames their guests have signed on!
