Making a wedding photo collage is also a fun project the two of you can do together, a way to mark the end of your honeymoon or the wedding anniversary.
Here are some points to consider if you want to create a personal masterpiece.
At the very beginning of your project, think of a certain style that the whole composition will follow. This will depend on various things like the personalities of the bride and groom, the atmosphere that reigned on the wedding day, your personal vision of the couple, etc. The style can range from elegant or vintage to artistic and humorous. The choice of photos, the color palette, the layout and decorations will all be affected by the collage style.
Portraits and Events
The wedding photo collage can be focused on certain events, probably involving the engagement, the wedding preparations, the ceremony, the reception, the honeymoon. All sorts of rituals like exchanging rings, cake cutting, throwing the bouquet (or garter toss) can be displayed to make the joy and bliss of that day return to you. On the other hand, the composition can be devoted to the couple rather than the ceremony. Choose the best photo with the two of them together, and add individual portraits of bride and groom showing how special they are and how they complement each other.
Layout and Decoration
When it comes to layout, you have infinite options. Use the wedding photo collage templates offered by the collage making software, or carefully arrange the photos to reflect your personal vision of the ideal composition. Add masks, frames and clipart that match the chosen style. Include the marriage vows or meaningful captions prompted by your heart.
