Wedding Photo Collage Ideas

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

A wedding photo collage is an interesting idea with lots of great possibilities. You can create them for yourself or for family, friends and anyone else you want to share your memories with. Here are just a few ideas for those looking to share their big day in a special way:

a. You might want to make a photo collage of your wedding for your parents or grandparents. You can do this as a special gift shortly after your wedding day using pictures that you have selected from the photographer or someone else who took pictures at the event. Try to select ones that the recipient would like, making it as personal as it can be. For example, your grandparents will probably like a collage of just family, whereas your folks might prefer a mix of family and close friends.

b. You can combine photos from your wedding with others such as your first date, destination vacations and other special occasions and give them to your husband or wife as an anniversary gift. This will have much more meaning than the usual anniversary presents, and you can take a trip down memory lane together.

c. If you want to do something really unique, make your photo collage into a jigsaw puzzle. You can take your favorite shots from your big day, e.g. the first dance, cutting the cake, family table pictures, and upload these to an online service that will turn them into a unique wedding photo collage puzzle. These can be great for everyone, as they combine the memory of your special day with a fun activity for kids and adults alike. After all, who doesn’t like a jigsaw puzzle?

Whatever you decide, make sure it’s done right. Look online for companies that specialize in digital wedding photo collages, and choose one that offers a wide selection of options. Most good online stores will have some of their past work displayed so you can get an idea of what the photo collage may look like. If you can’t decide what to choose, they will suggest a photo collage for you.

If you go the puzzle route, there are only a select few companies that do this, at least professionally. You want to make sure the company you choose specializes in digital photo jigsaw puzzles. It shouldn’t be too difficult to determine this. You can order them in a variety of puzzle sizes depending on skill level, from 35 pieces all the way up to 1500 pieces. Prices usually range from around $80 to $250.
