7 things to definitely KEEP after your wedding day

7 things to definitely KEEP after your wedding day


Written by Katie Byrne


Tempting as it is to shove everything in the loft, these are the mementos - other than the photos - you'll want to keep to always remind you of your celebration!

 

#1 A pressed flower or two from your wedding bouquet

If you don't want to keep the whole bouquet, keep a couple of the prettiest blooms and preserve them (there are some ideas for how here!). Alternatively, you might want to frame your bouquet - this company offers a great service for turning your bridal blooms into a piece of art.

#2 Your wedding perfume

Fragrance is a magical thing - evocative and heady, it has the power to reawaken memories like no other. Keep a bottle of the perfume you wore on your wedding day so you can spritz it into the air and be transported back to your big day.

#3 Your dress

Well, duh! If you're not planning to sell it or give it to charity, you're going to want to find the perfect place at home to store it. First of all, get it dry-cleaned; then, consider whether you want to store it in your wardrobe, in the attic or perhaps take it to a storage facility if you don't have much space going space.

#4 Your guestbook

#5 A tier of wedding cake

Tradition dictates the bride and groom should save the top tier of their wedding cake to tuck into on their one-year anniversary, as well as to mark the christening of their first child.

However, if you opted for a non-fruit cake or, more simply, the thought of tucking into stale cake simply doesn't appeal, follow the lead of couples across the globe by asking your baker to re-make it for you in time for the anniversary.

#6 A bottle of wine from your reception
