Save the dates
Just because the date has passed doesn’t mean you can’t hold onto your save the date card. Keep one of your save the dates and transform it into an everyday item. This could mean framing it or turning it into a magnet to always have on your fridge.
After the wedding, most brides just opt to put all of their pictures into a wedding album. While this is a simple and easy option, why not personalize it a bit? Make it your own by adding a bit of scrapbook flair to it and put in some captions or organize them in a way that’s special to you. Instead of keeping this album in a closet to collect dust after a few years, consider leaving it out on the coffee table for you and your spouse as well as guests to admire.
Make some art
Another ultra unique option would be to turn your photos into a work of art! Choose your favorite pictures and enlarge them to hang on your wall. It’s a bit more modern than a framed photo and will be a constant reminder of the special day, even during those draining nine to five days once you go back to the grind of the workweek.
Create a blog
With today relying heavily on digital modes of communication, a blog is a great place for you and anyone else to see your wedding photos. Share the link to the online photo album with family and friends so they can view them whenever they would like. Offbeat Bride suggested starting a group page on Flickr and let other wedding guests contribute to the album to make it even more special.
After the reception, you’re going to have centerpieces, decorations, glassware and more. If you’re not psyched about bringing everything back home, lots of brides give their centerpieces away to their friends and family. As far as other little decor items go, you would be surprised at what your guests would be willing to take off your hands.
