Now that we are through the Spring but still in the thick of wedding season, we're getting lots of requests for interesting gift ideas as well as questions about the best ways to frame wedding photos.
This year has been a little different to say the least, which has forced people to get even more creative.
So if a friend is getting hitched or if you're looking for an easy but meaningful way to commemorate your own big day, we've got you covered.
When You Know the Newlyweds
Create a Custom Collage Frame
A classic, and for good reason. Collect multiple photos of the happy couple throughout the years, and compile them in a collage picture frame.
Choose pics of milestone moments like favorite trips, the engagement or wedding day, or go even further back with cute childhood photos.
Frame the 'Save the Date' or Wedding Invitation
Not only is this an easy, budget friendly gift idea, it’s also super sweet.
Add a nice twist by mounting the invitation or save the date on top of a colorful envelope in one of the wedding colors. With online custom framing, you can pull this off without even leaving home.
Frame Their New Home or Last Name
Often times, a new marriage means a new name, a new home, or both.

You can commission, and then custom frame a painting, drawing, or photograph of the couple's first home together. Or celebrate this new, exciting chapter with a framed sign that bears their name.
There are countless ways to go about this one, whether you make the sign yourself or have it printed or calligraphed.
When You Are the Newlyweds
If you have the digital images from your wedding day, we’ll print with archival inks guaranteed not to fade for over a century, handcraft the frame to your exact liking, and then deliver everything to your door ready to hang in about a week.
We can even help with frame styles and layouts if you have a large number of photos to frame or want to create a gallery wall.
Sometimes it's fun trying to guess the year a wedding took place by searching for clues in the photo such as the guests' attire. We're getting to print and frame lots of wedding photos that ultimately won't be too challenging to pinpoint in the future.

Frame Your First Dance Song
This idea is one of our favorites. If you’re familiar with our work, you know we love a good framed vinyl record, and can help you track down pretty much anything you might be looking for.
If you want to add an even more personal touch, we can include a plaque or engrave the mat with your names, wedding date, venue or song title.
Frame Your Vows, Dinner Menu or Playlist
You probably worked super hard on these things during the planning process, and now that the champagne bubbles have settled (so to speak), you can sit back and admire what you pulled off
Don't Forget About Your Anniversary!
Did you know that wood is the traditional gift for 5 years of marriage?
Having something custom framed inside one of our all wood profiles seems pretty perfect.
