Picture Collage

So ever since I saw this diy idea over on Bryn's blog I was inspired to do something similar of my own. (If you follow her instructions it makes it SO easy to do!) Since we were having our first get together a few weeks ago it seemed like the perfect time to dress the house up a bit. My hubby on the other hand wasn't so sure about putting up so many frames and having our wedding pictures in them. Don't get me wrong I didn't want all pictures of us and these were the best ones we had with the entire family. Also while these will be up for awhile I do have a few other ideas of what to replace them with until we have kids. I honestly LOVE how it turned out and love having pictures of both our families blended together! I think once it was done he liked the finished product too! So without further ado:The wall is actually quite big but it looks off center since the sofa is further to the right. Please excuse the chairs they have to be put away from the company we had!
He also insists he is going to frame a 4x6 of a picture of all of the frames and post it on the wall across, just to see what people will look at more. But that's just him making fun of me and I have half a mind to actually print him a 4x6 and tape it to the wall as a joke!

Interestingly enough while this debate was going on at my house it seemed to be quite popular in the blog arena so for some other thoughts on displaying your wedding pictures you can check out Make Mine a Mojito, Blue Eyed Bride, and Misadventures of a Newlywed

When I first got all of my pictures I had no idea what to do with them. In one of my hallways I decided to do a collage wall. In the middle I have one of those huge collage frames, and I filled it with wedding pics and rehearsal dinner pics. All of the other pictures are from the honeymoon or other events. It's really up to you, I think. If your wedding pics are beautiful, you love them, and it's one of the best pics you're dolled up in, go for it.

More than having them on display I really LOVED the idea of having all our family together on one wall...and everyone looked SO pretty at the wedding :)
