Many years after your wedding has passed and you’ve been blessed with kids that remind you of when you were little and charming, there will be few mementos left to remind you of how special your wedding day was.
These mementos will probably be your wedding dress or suit (if you still have it), your wedding ring, and most important, your wedding pictures.
Your wedding pictures are most important because they are visual representations of the memories that were made that day.
What you can’t remember on your own, pictures are capable of reminding you – That enchanting “you may kiss the bride moment”. The moment you smeared cake on the groom’s face. Or that embarrassing moment your mother and father did the robot on the dance floor. Pictures capture it all and will always be there to remind you. But if you want your pictures to last for generations to come so your kids, grandkids and great-grandkids can see them, then you have to keep your pictures the right way. One of the most effective ways to accomplish this is by framing the physical copies of your photographs.
Fortunately, with the advent of online photo frame retailers this can be easily, quickly, and affordably done. If you aren’t convinced, let’s in detail consider the major reasons why framing your wedding photographs is important.
Why A Frame?
Framing a photograph protects and guarantees it stays clear and safe for a long time to come. With the right frame, your photographs are protected from elements that might cause them to fade with time or become mouldy. Another form of protection is framed pictures can’t be bent or folded indiscriminately, thus preventing creases that will in the long run damage the picture.
A frame actually enhances the quality of a photograph. You can’t compare the beauty of a mere print to that of a photograph encased in a complimenting frame. A picture that’s secure in a frame that doesn’t dominate it or overpower it, is more of a pleasure to look at as its aesthetic appeal is improved.
With a frame, you can comfortably place your wedding photograph in any part of your home – On your dressing table, in the living room, the dining area, anywhere you want. This is one advantage that you can’t deny the benefit of.
Another advantage that cannot be understated is the portability frames give photographs. If and when the time comes to relocate, a frame makes packing easy. You don’t have to worry about forgetting what corner you slid a photo into because a frame stands out, thus less chances of you losing photographs during a relocation. Also, a frame protects the photograph from suffering any damage while being handled by careless movers. Rather, the frame will bear the damage and leave the photograph unscathed. This is a good thing because there’s all likelihood that the frame is replaceable while the photograph isn’t.
What Else Can You Do To Protect Your Photographs?
To further protect the treasured memories from your wedding day, you can have digital backups of your photographs and store them on the cloud for easy recovery. This way, if the worst were to happen to all your framed photographs, you can simply have them reprinted and reframed.
There’s a reason why priceless paintings at art museums and exhibitions are framed. Learn from them and keep your wedding photos secure with the right frame for generations to come.
