Your wedding should be one of the most magical days of your entire life. It’s an occasion where you and your partner publicly declare your love for one another and celebrate with your family and friends. So, you’re going to want lots of keepsakes to take away from the event. There are a few obvious options, such as hiring a professional photographer or videographer to capture the day’s events on film. But there are a few other, unique ways of creating sentimental keepsakes for both you and your guests to look back on nostalgically a few years down the line. Here are some of our favourites.
Photo Booth Guest Books
Most weddings will have a guest book setup for everyone to leave their best wishes for the happy couple. But make yours extra special. Combine a fun photo booth experience for your guests with the creation of a unique and intimate guest book. Trust a reliable company like Booth Boy to create a personal photographic studio for your guests. Not only will they help to produce high-quality photos, but they will also create a vibe at your event. Their booths have vintage exteriors which attractively mask a high tech setup. Digital SLR cameras are used to take stunning images of your guests against a choice of backdrops. The best part? Your guests can see themselves in real time, allowing them to pull the best poses and really work that camera. Flattering lighting catches everyone’s best side and instant prints mean that your guests have an image to take home with them. Now, this is where you can get creative. Each booth has a helpful attendant to ensure that everything keeps running smoothly throughout the day. Hand this individual your guest book and request an extra print of every image that is made. The attendant will be able to stick this extra image into your guest book and request that all guests sign or leave messages around their picture before leaving the booth. By the end of the day, you’ll have a guest book like no other! Not only will you be able to re-read your guests wishes time and time again, but you will also be able to see exactly how they were on the big day. Perfect!
Preserving the Bouquet
You may think that the bride’s bouquet is one of the most perishable items from the big day, but more and more people are deciding to preserve theirs in some way or another. There are a few different options that allow you to keep the bouquet forever (and not in a Miss Havisham-esque way). The first is storing them in a shadow box. This can then be hung on your wall for years to come. There are plenty of brilliant tutorials out there that will guide you through the step by step process of preserving your beautiful flowers. A second option is to dry your blooms, then stick them in a scrapbook of some sort. This is perhaps more a simple method of preservation but can have equally stunning results.
These are just a couple of the possibilities available to you when it comes to preserving remnants of your big day. Follow your imagination and get creative for beautiful keepsakes that will last years down the line.
