The days leading to your wedding are some of the most exciting in your life. There’s so much to do, and you want to get everything right. After all, your wedding day is going to be one of the happiest and most important days of your life. But how can you make sure that this special day is remembered months, years, and decades after? Here are five creative ways to preserve your wedding memories.
Make a Video
There’s hardly a better way to capture all the beautiful moments of your wedding day than through film. A professional video production company can help capture the joyous story of your special day, especially the mood of the occasion. It’s one of the best ways to relive your big day for generations. An excellent cinematographer may not come cheap, but in the end, the investment is well worth it.
Chances are you’ve already contacted a reputable wedding photographer for your special day. If you haven’t, now is the time to do so. Photographs, like video, capture the highlights of your wedding. Once the wedding day is over and you’ve received all the pictures from your photographer, you can decide how you want to display them. You could have some of them framed beautifully and display them on your wall. Or you could gather them in a stylish album.
Have a Wedding Planning Journal
Weeks before your wedding, start keeping a planning journal that details things you’ll want to remember after the wedding day. For instance, you could write the story of your proposal or even write down a draft of your wedding vows. You could also include more practical details of your wedding planning, such as the business cards of your dress shops. These sentimental details will be helpful when you want to relive your wedding years later.
Start Making a Keepsake
There are lots of little things that will help keep memories of your wedding fresh. You could keep the champagne cork from the dinner before your wedding, for instance, or a piece of lace from your wedding dress. Other souvenirs you can pack away include a copy of your wedding vows, or even a cowrie shell from the beach you visit when you go on your honeymoon. You could even hire a watercolorist to paint a few scenes from your wedding.
Reuse Décor from Your Wedding Day
Once your wedding is over, you do not need to throw away the décor you used. If you’re purchasing props, think of creative ways those props can be reused in your home. If you’re using blackboards at your wedding, repurpose them afterward as slates where you’ll be writing love notes. Such wedding mementos remind you of your special day every day.
Your wedding day is an exciting experience that deserves to be shared with future generations. When you use your creativity for your special day, you and your partner will make it more special and you can keep the memories of this joyful period alive for as long as you wish.
