Frame your invitation alone or in a collage with other wedding day items.
Collage displays are a great way to display multiple wedding pictures in a single frame. ie: professional formal wedding portraits, candid pictures of you laughing with your new spouse or a silly picture from a guest with disposable camera. Collages can also be used to display your written vows, special poems or meaningful notes. Or use your collage mat as a guest book. Don't forget the option of a shadow box to house all those memories that are three dimensional. Too often, wedding items become damaged in old shoe boxes and are never seen let alone appreciated.
Wedding Keepsake ideas:
*Documents- florist bill or jewellers receipt. Even limo, tux, and catering invoices can be amusing years later.
*Cork and Champagne Labels.
*The garter with accompanying picture.
*Marriage registration. Obtain a second copy, of course.
*Menu Cards. How many couples can remember what they served at their reception.
*Speeches & Toasts. Obtain copies from the best man, maid of honour or master of ceremonies. Even a sentimental speech from dear old papa.
*Flowers. Press, dry and preserve your flowers in a shadow box frame.
*Don't forget the photographs you snapped when you didn't have a professional there. The pictures from the shopping trips, pre-wedding parties, beauty salon. Create a picture diary of the months of planning.
