Wedding Keepsakes: Top 5 Inspiration Ideas


Wedding Keepsake Ideas

A wedding is a once in a lifetime affair that makes for lifetime memories. Every wedding is unique and beautiful and deserves to be relived and remembered for generations to come. Wedding photography is the most popular and common way to capture and freeze the wedding memories but there are so many more fun and creative ways to make these memories last forever.

If you are looking for fun and creative ideas to make your wedding memories a ‘forever kinda’ thing’ here are some great ways:


1. Guest Book/Memento

Keeping a guest book is common, but you can make it more fun. In case you are your partner are passionate travelers, make your guests sign on a globe or atlas, you could also make a photo book and make your guests sign there. You could do a print that can be framed and hung in a guest bedroom – the options really are endless.

2. Photobooks

There are so many wedding photobook options these days. You can make your own in-expensively or often purchase on through your photographer. I’m a huge fan of the lay-flat books at Artifact Uprising (and not just because Oprah is too!).  The books are stunning – but you can also put them out on a coffee table where people will actually look at them.

3. Prints

Just like photobooks…there are so many options for what to do with your prints. One of my favorites is this memento box that can hold lose photos/mementos and sit on a desk or shelf.

4. Wishing Jar, Message in a Bottle & River Rocks

Old mason jars or reused wine bottles with custom designs can be the perfect way to collect memories. Ask each guest to write a message/wish for you, fold it up and put it in the jar/bottle. You can unfold and read all the lovely messages on your first anniversary or any other special day you choose. You could also have guests leave a message on a river rock and later use them in a garden or decorative jar.

5. Date Night

This is definitely one of the most interesting keepsake you can take from your wedding. Ask your guests to suggest date night ideas (write them on nice popsicle sticks or note cards) and put them in a jar. Every time you plan a date, take one folded paper out and do as it says! It’s also a great way to stay in touch and share your memories with your guests post wedding!

No matter what your wedding will always be the most memorable day for you, adding keepsakes will only make it a little more fun and special. Happy planning your wedding day keepsakes! Make it creatively exciting!
