Beyond the Wedding Album: 6 Easy Tips for Saving Wedding Memories
Raise your hand if it’s past your first anniversary, and you haven’t finished your wedding album yet. Yeah, us, too. Setting aside special keepsakes is a great way to help relive the magic of your big day. Many folks don’t do it because they fear the process will be overwhelming. But saving wedding memories can be super simple and satisfying.
Here are some of our best ideas for how to document your wedding, without all the fuss.
1. Start at the beginning: Don't wait until the big day to start collecting items that are significant. My friend wrote a letter to her mom from overseas after her first date with her (now) husband that said, "I'm sure by the time you get this, he'll be history." You can bet that made it to the cover of her wedding program!
2. Assign a steward: The wedding day is over in a second, but the keepsakes live on for years to come. You’ll want to make sure someone is in charge of gathering the key items day of so you don’t have to think about grabbing that place card or wedding program before it's swept up by the caterers.
