Do you have a closet or home large enough to display your dress, veil, accessories and wedding mementos like invitations or your garter? More than likely you don’t and neither do I. Off to Pinterest I went to find a way to create a wedding keepsake.
As I quickly approach two years of marriage I have finally decided to find a way to preserve a few precious items from my wedding day aka a keepsake. My dress and veil have been preserved and packed away but what do I do with all the other “stuff”? I pretty much kept a little something from my bridal shower invitations to the broach my bridesmaids had attached to their bouquets. (No, I didn’t steal the broach from one of my bridesmaids and yes I order an extra one for myself). My wedding day was one of the best days of my life and it was super important to me to have memories other than my wonderful picture around my home.
I’m not normally a DIY person when it comes to items in my home but I decided to take on this task. To my surprise once I got started I couldn’t believe how easy it was. I had my little project complete in no more than twenty minutes. So those of you who think you don’t have time to do something like this, let me be completely honest and say that it is crazy easy and totally worth your time.
All the items I needed were a shadow box, scrapbook paper, double-sided tape and all my precious items.
Wedding items I selected:
1. Bridal shower invitations
2. Wedding invitation
3. Engagement Announcement
5. Grandmothers brooch from my bouquet
6. Cake topper
9. Hair piece
10. Bridesmaid brooch
I’m so happy with how it turn out and the shadow box is currently hanging in my bedroom. I have no doubt it will be a topic of conversation when girlfriends visit. So unless you do have a closet or space in your home where you can display your items in a glass case like in a museum my advice is do this. You will be ecstatic with the results!
