Banner Ideas for a Wedding Photo Shoot
A wedding photo shoot is necessarily included in the program of any modern wedding. To make it fun, surprise guests and get stylish photos, you need to prepare a photo zone. Banners for the photoset must be of high quality, and the materials, paints, lighting must comply with the conditions of the celebration (this applies to both outdoor ceremonies and indoor events).
Wedding banners come in several forms. It’s quite possible to use all of them for the wedding, the main thing is that it matches the theme of the holiday (colors, fonts, materials, decor elements should be in the same style). If a celebration is organized by a team of professionals, such a problem, as a rule, does not arise. If the newlyweds do everything on their own, distributing help between friends or relatives, it is necessary to coordinate all stages. What are the wedding banners?
A poster with the names of the newlyweds is a traditional, not losing popularity way of wedding decoration. Such a decoration is quite capable of being made independently. In addition to the names on the poster, photos of the groom and the bride (in the form of a love story or just a romantic or fun collage) or wedding symbols (rings, hearts, doves, ribbons or flowers) will be appropriate to look at.
Stencils will help to make a stylish banner. Choose an elegant font in a suitable computer program, write the names, print the letters on the printer, cut them with scissors or a clerical knife. If you need a large label (larger than A4 format), order a printout of a printing press on a large format printer. Very large letters are convenient to apply with spray paint or a roller.
A cartoon poster always makes you smile and makes the wedding informal, brings a touch of humor and enthusiasm to the seriousness of the celebration and remains a gift for the newlyweds as a long memory. A cartoon is ordered from the artist, as a rule, from a photograph; posing personally is not necessary. The wedding cartoon can be printed in any size, inserted into a frame or fixed as a banner.
The press wall is a large banner (canvas) stretched over the frame. These designs are traditionally used for photo shoots of various events (presentations, press conferences, ceremonies). Modern public weddings also can not do without a photoset on the background of the banner stand, which has made it a popular decoration of the wedding photo zone. Advertising agencies are engaged in the manufacture and installation of press-wall, the price depends on the size and type of construction.
The wedding press wall is placed indoors or outdoors. If the photo shoot is planned in the evening, you should order a press-wall with built-in lighting. The content of the banner is usually personal logos, names of the newlyweds, the date of the celebration, photo collages. It is advisable to entrust the development of the layout to a professional designer - the result will be stylish photographs. The wedding press wall is decorated with thematic paraphernalia or just flowers, fabric draperies or ribbons.
The most successful press-wall option is a banner in the floor, which will allow you to take a photo without ugly joints, racks and other installation details. To make the photos as high-quality as possible, spotlights are installed in front of the press wall (they are leased by the same companies that make such banners). It is advisable to order a press-wall in advance (about a month before the celebration) in order to get a high-quality stand and on time.
Press wall is not the cheapest pleasure, so if you want to save money, order a banner without mounting / dismounting. The frame for stretching the fabric will have to be rented, in addition, special fasteners will be needed. If you have design skills, make a banner layout yourself using a graphics program on your computer, and then order printing at an advertising company or printing house.
With photos of the newlyweds
A banner with photos of the bride and groom is not the best background for a photo shoot. But such a poster (or, if desired, a whole gallery of images) will be a wonderful decoration of a banquet hall. It is advisable to process the selected photos before printing in a graphical computer program in order to adjust colors, remove defects or unnecessary details, add thematic design or inscriptions if necessary. Print these posters on special paper or banner canvas..
In the form of a garland
Themed garlands are another popular wedding decor. This decoration is easy to do with your own hands, in addition, its creation will not take much time. A garland looks appropriate almost everywhere: on tables, chairs, on a wall or ceiling, indoors or outdoors. If the bride and groom will pose with such a garland in their hands, we get a stylish thematic photo.
What to draw on a banner-garland, except for the usual wedding hearts or the names of the newlyweds? In size, such a banner looks good if it is not very long, so short wishes of 1-2 words will do («Love and happiness», «Together forever», «May you live happily ever after», «Newlyweds»), capital letters of the names of the bride and groom, the date of the celebration. For a modern wedding in a European style, the inscription in English looks romantic and stylish «Mr & Mrs» («Mr. and Mrs»).
As a material for the garland suitable fabric or thick paper. To inscriptions remain for a long time, use special paints (for fabric or acrylic). The colors of the letters and the background should contrast, otherwise reading such a banner would be problematic. A fashionable alternative to painted garlands would be paper-cut stencils. As a pattern for cutting, not only names or dates are suitable, but also the silhouettes of a flower, dove or heart - such a garland looks very romantic.
How to make a DIY wedding banner
To make a stylish wedding banner-garland with the inscription, you will need the following materials:
- white cardboard for the background;
- cardboard of blue (or any other contrast) color for the substrate;
- color printer;
- glue stick;
- figured hole punch for edge treatment;
- scissors, clerical knife;
- hanging tape.
- Select the appropriate font, size and color for the inscription on the computer, write and print the letters on a printer on white cardboard. If it is not possible to print on cardboard, use ordinary writing paper - in this case, the printed blanks will need to be glued to white cardboard (otherwise the substrate will shine through the thin paper). Trim the edges of the letter blanks according to your size.
- Cut the sheets of blue cardboard for the substrate to the required size (they should be larger than the white blanks with letters).
- Treat the edges of the substrate with a curly hole punch.
- Glue both parts (white and blue).
- With a knife, make two slots for the ribbon on each letter. To keep the letters in their places and not drive, the holes should be less than the width of the tape.
- Pass the ribbon through the letters and hang in the right place.
Photo of original wedding banners
Wedding banners are used not only for a photo shoot, but also as a screen, a partition or an information object (a place for congratulations, a guide for guests). There are no restrictions in the design of banners - it all depends on the imagination of the newlyweds, the experience of the wedding coordinator and the budget. Be sure to take into account only the theme of the event: posters and stands that stand out from the general style will nullify all the efforts of decorators.
