Hey y’all! I need honest opinions on this idea for wedding photos above our bed. Is it a cute idea, outdated and terrible, or something else? Photos would likely be in black and white as well. Thanks in advance! Honest opinion - wedding picture print idea! 1

    I don't think you should worry about "outdated" when decorating, and especially not in your private space/bedroom. If you like it, that is reason enough to do it.

    I would not personally like this in my own house, but taste is entirely subjective.

    I agree- if you like it in your bedroom then put it in your bedroom. Your bedroom is your private space. However, I would want to show off the pics & put it where everyone can see, like the living room.

    I don't see a problem with it. Decorate however you want.

    I love this idea! I was thinking about doing it myself! I just ended up ordering 20 mixtiles of our wedding photos.

    Personally I would put one canvas print there instead of three pictures, but it is your room and you can decorate however you want!

    So my situation is, my photographer gives a 300$ print credit for any prints we want. I posted awhile ago about photos for canvases in our dining room, which I ordered elsewhere because my photographer was charging 375$ PER canvas and I wanted 4. I could get 3 prints in a larger size for 300$ or several normal size prints, I just don’t know what to do and was trying to think of unique ideas to get something other than regular size prints but I may just end up doing that, i dont know. Photos of my dining room canvases:

    I would order whatever you like best with the credit, and save some money printing them elsewhere! I rarely order straight from the source for that exact reason!

    I personally wouldn't put framed photos above the bed. It doesn't look bad at all and if styled nicely, it will look great! I just wouldn't like them above my bed. Maybe a wedding picture gallery on another wall in the bedroom though!

    That looks fantastic with the three! I would worry about earthquakes but those are a big deal in CA. Some states, not so much.

    I love the idea of a wedding portrait above the bed. Yes, it's more traditional, but not outdated. Personally, I like the look of one photo, but do whatever you prefer. It's your bedroom.

    I agree! I think it looks great! Would only be concerned about it coming down, but you’ll have that risk with any substantial/heavy pieces above the bed

    I think this looks beautiful in the photo. But for me personally I’d rather not have photos of us above our headboard. I’d rather have a quote about love or marriage above our headboard and keep the wedding photos in the living room/entryway.

    We're doing this with canvases above our bed. Also getting prints to put in our family room. Personally I love it.

    I think those look super cute. Maybe even somewhere else in the house. Like a hallway or living room area. But either way, i really like them like that with the room decor.

    I'm going to do a (single) wedding portrait in our bedroom, above the knot that we tied -- my goal was for us to be reminded of our vows and the joy of our marriage every day! However, I'm putting it on the wall opposite our bed for the dual reasons that (1) I only face our bed in passing so I don't think I'd really notice decorations above it and (2) I grew up in CA so I'm always worried about putting heavy things above a bed!
