Weddings are momentous occasions in our lives, always celebrated with great joy and excitement. This special day marks the union of two people who have decided to spend the rest of their lives together and often stays in the memory forever.
While the wedding day itself will only last for a few hours, couples often want to make sure they can take something home that will serve as a reminder of the important milestone in their lives.
Here, we'll share with you tips and creative ways you can create wedding souvenirs to last a lifetime.
When it comes to wedding day souvenirs, there are so many unique ideas to explore. Whether it's something your guests can use again and again or something they can simply hang up at home, we've got you covered.
For instance, you could plan a memento long before the wedding day, by ensuring your wedding invites can be kept and framed by using both your names and the date on the reverse of the invitation.
Customised mugs or tumblers with the couple’s initials or a special message make for great gifts that your guests will be sure to appreciate too.
You could also opt for keychains or magnets with the date of your wedding printed on them or perhaps even a picture outside the venue.
Personalising your wedding day souvenirs is a great way to make them even more special and memorable. It will also show your guests just how important they are to you and how appreciative you are that they attended your wedding day.
One of the most popular ways to do this is by adding custom labels or tags with the couple’s names with a special message. You can also add photos of the couple to thank you cards wedding, showing appreciation for their attendance.
Another idea is to have each guest’s name printed on their souvenir as a way to thank them for attending your big day.
Something really creative and unique could also be to have personalised stamps made with your initials which you can then use on the day.
Wedding souvenirs are a brilliant way to commemorate your special day. Popular souvenirs often have a deeper meaning behind them, only known by the guests themselves, which is why they’re so popular.
Many couples choose to give out small bottles of bubbles to symbolise the joy and happiness that comes with marriage, as well as the idea that love should be celebrated. Some also opt for small plants or flowers as their wedding gifts as they symbolise growth and new beginnings – ideal for a newly married couple.
Your gifts should represent your commitment to each other and sharing that love with your friends and family.
After the wedding day is over, you’ll be left with a lot of memories and mementoes you’ll want to keep for years to come and it’s important to find creative ways to display them.
You could create a wall gallery of photos from your special day as a keepsake gift and create a collage of your favourite shots.
Another idea is to use shadow boxes with multiple openings so you can showcase several items at once. This could include things like ticket stubs, dried flowers from your bouquet and other small trinkets that remind you of the big day.
Try also framing any sentimental cards from guests or family members and hanging them up in an area where they will be seen often.
To create lasting memories of your special day, consider giving out personalised wedding gifts to ensure the wedding day is unique and memorable.
No matter what type of souvenirs you choose to give guests on your big day, make sure it has some sort of meaningful connection to you and your partner’s relationship.
