Those Who Have Gone Before Us

In honor of my grandparents' 61st wedding anniversary (isn't that crazy?!) I wanted to blog about a special project I'm doing to honor the marriages of those closest to us.

My mom's parents' wedding picture - She's gorgeous!

I can't remember where I first saw the project, but I've seen several examples of brides who framed pictures of their parents' and grandparents' wedding pictures. I loved the idea of honoring the commitments that those close to us made so many years ago. Here's the look I'm going for (except with matching black frames that I've bought):

Our parents' wedding pictures will be in 5x7 frames and our grandparents' pictures will be in 4x6 frames. They'll be next to the memorial candles and probably the card box. I told David to start asking his mom about their family's because he's kind of known to put things off, but he actually did it last night. His mom said she has her parents' wedding picture somewhere, and his dad is going to work on finding his parents'. I think I'll be making all of the pictures black and white and making little pink signs to sit in front of them to explain who is in each picture.

Are you doing anything to honor the marriages of your parents or grandparents?


  1. I love this idea! Thanks for the inspirations!

  2. I read about this somewhere and was also thinking of doing just have to make sure the families are fine with having the photos displayed. And hopefully all the marriages you are featuring are happy marriages!
