You will hire the photographer and maybe a videographer to capture your special day in photos for sure. You will have selfies and action and posed shots galore, but what else can you do to tangibly hold onto your wedding day memories for a lifetime?
Here are some ideas to ignite and inspire:
Bouquet reboot: Dry your flowers and encase them into a clear glass ball as a special first Christmas ornament for your tree. Pressing your blooms and framing them is a classic and traditional way to display your flowers. Drying your bouquet for a dome display will also be a beautiful addition to your new place together.
Wedding dress jewelry: A snippet of lace from your gown (if you do not want to keep your dress intact) can be transformed into a pendant necklace, earrings or bracelet. Find some do-it-yourself ways or connect with a jeweler on best practices. Removing buttons or adornments can also be an avenue to wedding dress jewelry pieces without having to cut up your dress.
Wedding dress lives on: If you are willing to transform your dress, you can turn it into whole new items. Your material can be repurposed into a quilt, teddy bear or pillowcase.
Words to live by: Wedding cards are often heartfelt messages from all of your loved ones. What better way to revisit these inspirational mementos than through a special book. An album or scrapbook of cards is a great addition to a wedding photo album.
A work of art: Hiring a professional artist or painter to create a painting of a wedding photo creates a special piece for your home. It can also be a painting of just your dress or bouquet. A caricature artist can capture a funnier side.
Time capsule: Put together a box of special items, such as your wedding invitation, ceremony program, place card and other paper items along with notes to your future selves. Open this on your 10-year or 20-year anniversary.
