Now that the wedding is over and you’ve returned home from the honeymoon, it’s time to turn your wedding memories into wedding keepsakes, and yes—that includes your stationery! We often hear about pressing your flowers or preserving your dress, but you can also beautifully save your invitations as well. Here are three elegant ways to cherish your wedding invitations in a tangible way that will have them lasting as long as your photos.
Framing your invitations is a simple and easy way to preserve and display your suite, which you can DIY or have done professionally. If you are worried about this looking cheesy, don’t panic! There are plenty of chic frame options out there that can match well with your home decor. You can find inspiration on sites like Pinterest for more ideas and color palettes. Hang your frame in a more intimate space like your bedroom or display it in your living room to make it a conversation piece!
Tip: Framed invitations make a great gift for parents and in-laws!
2. Keepsake Box
If you want to display more details than just your wedding invitations, then a keepsake shadow box might be a great option. Consider including maps of the city or town you wed in, seating cards, photos, written vows, etc. The best part? You can include more three-dimensional items like your garter, pressed flowers from your bouquet, or a champagne cork from when you popped the bubbly!
3. Scrapbook or Album Page
If you plan on putting your wedding photos into a physical album, why not add a page for your wedding invites? The high-end quality of the paper makes a beautiful addition to your album while at the same time, adding depth and texture. Trust us when we say that your future children and grandchildren will appreciate inheriting something as meaningful as your wedding invitations that serve as an important part of your family history.
Tip: This is a great gift to give a married couple if you recently attended their wedding and still have the invitation!
