The day of your wedding is a beautiful day. Your family and friends gather around you, share words of wisdom, hug you and tell you congratulations, and post sweet sayings to your Facebook page. But as someone who has recently gotten married, I can tell you that it’s hard to keep a hold of those precious memories. But it doesn’t have to be! Here are a few ways that you can feel the love after the wedding day is over.
Set up a station where guests can write their advice for you. Custom coasters are a great way for guests to leave you their advice! There are unique ways you can design them to make them unique, but no matter how unique they are, they will surely be a heart warming sentiment to have after its all said and done.
Put together small pieces of paper that can be rolled up or folded, a jar of some type that can be sealed, and ask for your guests to write something on it for you. On your one year anniversary, sit down together and read these notes as you eat your top layer of cake you saved and make a date out of it. You’ll be surrounded by the wedding moment all over again.
DIY or order a canvas where all of your guests say write a little bit of advice for the happy couple. I’ve seen a wedding that had a canvas with various sized hearts where the guests could write to the bride and groom. Afterwards, the couple hung it on their wall and not only could they see the words of love everyday, but their guests could read it when they visited as well.
An especially unique idea and a good alternative to cocktail hour (especially for winter weddings); put together a Christmas ornament making table. Have a large table with clear ornaments (you can find these at your local craft store around the holidays), and have a sign that asks your guests to help you decorate your first Christmas tree as a married couple. As your guests decorate ornaments, you will have several ornaments to hang on your Christmas tree, all made with love by family and friends. This takes the meaning of love surrounding the season to an entire new level.
No matter what you do, the day is special. The love that your family and friends have for you is incredible, and they will be happy to share it with you on your big day!
