Build your memories

Are you one that is big for sentiments? As time passes by, it feels as if you'll never forget the amazing details of wedding day. But as the years go by, you'll want to have something to look back on, to relive the day, and even the months leading up to it all. Because there is so much that went on, it is difficult to know exactly what to save. We will assist and guide you on a few things we’ve learned throughout the years to make this a fun and exciting project for you. 


Photos and videos, of course are the obvious in bringing your wedding back to life again, but keeping bits and pieces for scrapbooks, and other archives is another idea we have clinked to with former clients.  The moment you say “yes”, that is the moment that you begin collecting to create your memories. You'll be surprised how much you save. We help you follow these easy ways to preserve everything you've collected.


                                         Keep a planning journal

Write your proposal story, tuck away fabric samples of your dress, or draft your wedding vows. You can combine the practical parts of wedding planning (dress-shop business cards) with more sentimental details. A plain notebook will do, or try a journal that guides you through the documenting.


                              Create an anniversary time capsule

This is an easy and fun way to hold onto keepsakes. The idea is to pack souvenirs away like the Champagne cork from your rehearsal dinner, a copy of your vows, a shell from your honeymoon beach - and set a date to revisit them. Make it your first anniversary, or your 20th! Put them in an archival box and stash it away.


                                                    Make a keepsake

There are many services that will take bits and bobs—pressed flowers from your bouquet, a bit of lace from your veil—and make them into a wearable memento; say, a charm for a necklace. Or think art: You can hire an artist to paint your bouquet from a photo, or even to come to the wedding itself and paint scenes from the day. Or use a service to create a gorgeous photo book from your digital pictures.


                                           Display your memories

Create a scrapbox. You can preserve a single thing, like your menu card, or a mix of items—a photograph of you cutting the cake along with the cake server itself, for instance—and mount it all in a frame. The result will be something unique and personal that you'll love to look at for years to come.
