Wedding Keepsakes

The old tradition is to save the top tier of your wedding cake and of course you will have your wedding photos to remind you of the amazing day you had, but what other nice ways are there to keep, display and commemorate your wedding day for years to come?

Here are a few nice wedding keepsakes ideas,

Firstly and easily frame your memories. Frame them all! Like your wedding invitation

My mother’s favorite gift to give was a painting of someone’s wedding invitation. I always thought it was really sweet.

Your wedding dress. Shadow boxes are so super versatile but keep in mind you will need a lot of space {and box and frame!} for this. Still, would be stunning in a dressing room wouldn’t it?

Box and frame other ceremony items like the rope you used in your hand-fasting ceremony or your bouquet


Or aisle runner



These four images and shadow boxes were found on My Framing Store

You can also have your vows recreated in a beautiful or fun typography poster and frame it.

– Or you know what? frame the handwritten speech your groom or father gave {and possibly made you cry} at the reception.

Make it into art. Anything. Have a wedding photo professionally sketched, water colored or fine art painted of you and your husband, your gown or your bouquet.

These wedding bouquets are lovely also. Dried individually and framed.

Save a few bottles of your wedding wine or champagne from the day. Store them properly and serve them on anniversaries.

Preserve the lace from your dress and use it in jewelry like in this pendant necklace on Etsy

Or preserve your flowers and wear it as jewelry! Lost Forest is an Irish based Jewelry designer who can make your bouquet into a ring, bangle bracelets or necklace pendant. I love these.
