I really love the trend of having a table of old family wedding pictures at your wedding. It’s a great way to honor your family on your wedding day, it’s beautiful, it’s affordable, and you’ll definitely use these pictures in your home after the wedding.
Another great thing about these pictures are that they are sure fire entertainment. My cousin had a table like this at his wedding, and we spent a good 15 minutes at the table. We oohhed and ahhheddd over the photos from the 1950’s, and giggled at the wedding fashions in the 1970’s. I figure this is just fine, because of course our kids will love the 1970’s fashions and mock our wedding choices. Miss Manners says that one of the key jobs of a wedding is to provide your kids with something to make fun of for a lifetime, which is a good way to keep it all in perspective.
And on that note, happy weekend! Woo!
