Hi! Quick question. If any of you are having framed signs at your reception, where are you buying them? Also, how big should I get them? I think 8x10, but I'm not good with measurements :/

I'll provide an example of the kind of sign I want. Thanks!

    Walmart has a TON of picture frames. I was looking for months for frames, and I stumbled across some awesome ones there!

    I am. I bought 30 5x7 frames from Joanne's for $8 each approximately. But, they were on sale at 40% off and I had a coupon for another percentage off my total purchase so my total was pretty small...can't remember what it was.

    For that type of sign an 8x10 should be okay...I think...

    I haven't purchased any, but when I do I'll be looking around for the best deals for mine. I'll hit these stores.

    Dollar Stores

    Marshalls

    Gordman's

    WalMart

    Hobby Lobby

    I bought frames from the dollar tree. You can always paint them.

    Also, as far as measurements: just remember 8x10 is almost a sheet of paper. 4x6 is your normal size photo. 5x7 is a good meeting point. Those are generally the options for frame sizes

    If you have an AC Moore in your area, there are always coupons in the Sunday paper for them.

    @Lacy, thanks so much for giving me some sort of rule of thumb! That is very helpful.

    Thank you everyone, I am going to start collecting coupons and looking around at these places Smiley smile

    It helps to have an idea about where you plan to put the signs to dictate the size. Definitely use your coupons and shop around! Keep in mind some of your larger canvases may not need a frame.

    Ask your photographer if they have any you can borrow. We did a few that way and for the remaining ones, I just borrowed frames from my own house (replaced the picture) until after the wedding. No extra money needed.

    I've purchased all my frames from Amazon and I got the actual signs from a seller on etsy.

    @Kim S, can I ask what seller you used? I was looking on Amazon but I didn't find anything.

    I have bought frames at dollar tree & spray painted them gold I was shocked at how good they look. I've done 5x7 & some 8x10 frames. It just depended on the space what size I chose.

    If you have good yard sales in your area, that's where I got mine from. They're typically less expensive, and nicer quality than a discount store! You can always spray paint them any color you'd like.
