Just thought I’d see if any of you have any ideas for how to incorporate old love letters into wedding decor? My fiance and I have been dating since high school, and we both independently saved the letters we wrote each other! We both have boxes full of them!
We’re getting married in September outside under a big oak tree, with a reception in a modern hotel ballroom. I was thinking we could put them in jars near the escort cards, or even use them somehow for the ceremony decor outside…

Not sure exactly how, but it might be kind of fun to have them in some sort of chronological order. Maybe HS letters as you walk in the venue … leading step by step to your head / sweetheart table with the most recent ones.
If you have rows of chairs, maybe you could have several letters on the rows of chairs (instead of flowers) and invite those guests who arrive early to read the letters while waiting?

I think putting them in a chronoglogical order lining the entrance to the venue would be sweet – or you could frame them and use them as part of your centerpieces, and on your cake & gift tables?
You could hang them along a wall on a string (like a clothesline)

@KHogan: Rolled into flowers for your bouquets. Hanging from the tree. Framed or mounted on wood and beside the guestbook. I would photocopy them and use the photo copies.

You can frame them and hang them in chronological order like previous posts say but I just wanted to tell you that it would be good if you made copies of the letters and used the copies instead of the originals in case they get lost/ruined.

Hi! I just came across your post and I want to do the same thing for my wedding! I have tons of letters my fiance and I wrote while he was away at basic training. I was thinking about photo copying the letters, cutting out romantic lines and mod-podging it onto picture frames or vases. Did you ever think of any good ideas?
