How to… display Couple moments

Personal memories handpicked by the bride and groom are easily the most important details to weave into a wedding, especially displayed in a unique, heartfelt way.

Here is a simple DIY photo runner -- perfect for any venue surface -- that is ideal for any wedding with a little touch of elegance and originality.

What you need:

  • Printer paper
  • Adhesive runner or glue stick
  • Favorite couple photos - black & white recommended

Step 1: The paper

Take your printer paper and start taping together. In terms of size, think about the surfaces you have in mind for your runner. You can make them as big or small and as many as you like. They are perfect to have throughout the wedding, as they are versatile and fashionable for many venue surfaces.

Step 2:  The photos

When choosing your favorite photographs as a couple, consider making them all black & white it's a classic look that will complement any wedding theme and add a touch of elegance.

Carefully tape or glue your photos to the paper. You can place them however you want and use a variety of angles -- just keep it aesthetically pleasing to yourself and don’t leave any big blank spaces.

Step 3: The rhythm

Keep following your self-created pattern until the entire paper is full. Be patient and careful as you put every last one in place to create a well-made runner.

Step 4: The placement

Placement is key when it comes to impressive and tasteful wedding decor. Plan ahead -- rather than day-of -- exactly where you want to place these and where you want people to see them. A few ideas: food tables, welcome table, gift table and even along your wedding aisle. The possibilities are endless.

Once you see your photo runner, you’ll love it. This DIY project can be used for all the other memorable occasions to come. Let it inspire a photo runner for baby showers, birthday parties, graduation parties or any other occasions where you want to highlight the precious moments that lead up to it.
