Your Guide to Framed Wedding Photos & Gifts

Now that we are through the Spring wedding season, we're getting a ton of requests for creative gift ideas as well as people asking about the best ways to frame wedding photos.

If a friend is getting hitched and you want to do more than just slip cash into a card, or even if you're the bride/groom looking for an easy but meaningful way to commemorate the big day, we've got you covered below.

When You Know the Newlyweds

Create a Custom Collage Frame

A classic, and for good reason. Collect photos of the bride and groom through 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 pretty twist by mounting the invitation or save the date on top of a colorful envelope in one of the wedding colors

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 the newlyweds’ name(s).

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 happen to be the one tying the knot, there are so many ways to memorialize your wedding day. Pick special bits and pieces from your wedding to frame, and put a personal twist on each one.

Framed Photos

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.

Frame Your First Dance Song

This idea is one of our favorites. If you’re familiar with Level, 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, song title, or whatever details you'd like.

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.
