    My venue suggested putting out a framed invitation but I wasn’t sure why (everyone there has already seen it since it came to them in the mail).  I am making my own guest book, so maybe I’ll put it in there.  I do like your idea though.  Can you post what they look like?  If you love it that much, then frame it.  I did frame our STD because I really liked it.

    I wasn’t going to but one of our guests did & gave it to us as an extra gift at our wedding. It was really touching since we worked very hard making our invites.

    Another guest sent us our invitation back decoupaged as a 1 year anniversery card. Looking back on it, we have really thoughtful friends 🙂

    We’re doing paperless post invites, but I’m framing a save the date. 

    Do it! If you love it, why not?

    i will. i’m gonna do a shadowbox, i think. i’ll also put one in a scrapbook. and my parents will probably frame one. theirs is framed and hanging in my mom’s sewing room, and i think mine will probably go up next to theirs.

    Framing the invitation was super popular prior to the scrapbooking craze.  I’m not sure if I’ll frame ours or not, but I think it’s a lovely idea, especially if seeing it lifts your spirits and inspires you!

    I’m probably going to frame ours.  Will probably use a shadow box since one portion of our invites are 3D.  If your invites are flat, you could just use a regular photo frame.. maybe put some nice scrapbooking/decorative paper in as the backing, and then lay out the invites the way they do in photographer’s pictures like this:

    (just pulled a random example off pinterest)
