4. Acrylic in photo frame
I love the simplicity of this acrylic look. If you're a talented hand letterer (or have a bridesmaid who is!), this would be a perfect canvas to write your and your groom's names. You could also paint the backside one of your wedding colors to give it just an extra pop.

5. A mirror with gold or white writing
Oh, vintage brides. This is a perfect way to set the tone of your gorgeous wedding. Be on the look out at flea markets or thrift stores to see if you can snag a stunning mirror. Then, hire a calligrapher to fill it in or whip out your own chalkboard pen and do it yourself!

Chalkboards are so versatile and go with most themes and budgets. Making a chalkboard is as easy as painting a piece of wood, so this is a perfect option for the DIY bride who still wants a luxury wedding look.

If you are absolutely in love with one of your engagement photos, then now is the time to let it shine. Print it off and prop it up on an easel. It's a simple and easy way to say "we're so glad you're here."
