These corks do a whole lot more than sit on wine bottles. Have a place to stash all of the corks you use at your wedding so you can transform them into a one-of-a-kind creation. There are SO much you can do with these things. The hardest part will be just picking one project. Some of these include making stamps, centerpieces, monograms, a cork board, coasters, a trivet or a wreath. But my favorite by far has to be wine glass charms. These would be perfect for you and your new partner to use when you entertain friends in your new home. Slice up a cork, choose your favorite letters to print on each piece, pop in a miniature eye screw and attach some twine to tie around the wine glass. Check them out, they’re adorable.
Many brides can’t part with their gorgeous arrangements after the wedding. They serve as a special reminder of the day you walked down the aisle. Why not display that happiness around your new home? You could opt to press your flowers to be displayed in a picture frame of you and your partner. Press a few of the petals between the pages of a thick book. Another option would be to display the bouquet in a shadow box. You may want to rely on the pros for this one to make sure it’s done right and to ensure your flowers will last a lifetime.
If you’re not planning on taking part in the whole “trash the dress” trend and wish to preserve your gown, similar to your flowers, you have the option to put it on display. Take it to the dry cleaner to be sure it looks as good as new and display it in a shadow box in area of the home where you can admire it every day. Make sure you choose a box that is going to protect the gown – you don’t want ultraviolet light to seep into the box and discolor your dress. You could also opt to transform the dress into a shorter, unique creation that you wear for special occasions. I mean, who wouldn’t want the chance to wear their dress again?
