Your wedding is one of the biggest days of your life, but it is over in just a few short hours. It is the memories of your big day that will last forever, which is why it is so important that you do what you can to ensure that your memories are preserved. With the following simple tips, you can ensure that you remember every part of your big day from now until forever.
Preserve Your Bouquet
Your bouquet may only play a small part in your wedding, but it is the smallest of details that can jog your memory, which is why you should preserve your bouquet. There are a couple of simple ways you can do this – you can either press your bouquet flowers and collect them in a scrapbook, or you can freeze-dry them and show them off in a vase, as a constant reminder of the happiest day of your life.
Create a Memorable Wedding Book
Before your wedding, you should seek out the perfect photographer to capture the event in the style you desire. There is nothing quite like expertly photographed wedding snaps to jog your memory and make you smile. However, you should also make an effort to collect more candid, personal photos of the day, perhaps by giving your guests cameras to goof around with. Then, you can arrange all of these pictures into a beautiful wedding album that will never fail to bring a tear to your eye when you take a peek.
Of course, it is also a good idea to pick out your favorite wedding photos and hang them up around your home. That way, you will get a daily reminder of the special day every time you look around you.
Frame Your Wedding Invitation
If you don’t mind showing your sentimentality on your sleeve, preserving your wedding invitation in a pretty frame is a nice touch which will help to keep the wedding memories alive.
Visit Your Venue
If you’re a real romantic and you want to experience the rush you had on your wedding day, why not take your partner back to the place you said: “I Do”? Walk down the aisle, reminisce and think about all the happy times you’ve had since. Do this periodically, perhaps on important anniversaries, and the special memories of your wedding will never die.
Relive Your First Dance
There are few things more romantic, and more able to refresh the memories of your wedding day, than putting on the song that was played for your first dance and inviting your partner to get up and share the moment with you. As you dance, you’ll turn back the years, and it’ll feel like you’re back at your wedding venue, young and in love, all over again.
Watch Your Wedding Video
Make a point of watching your wedding video with your partner once a year to keep the memories alive and renew your love.
Doing any of these things is sure to bring back beautiful memories and keep them alive for you and your partner for as long as you live!
