There is a considerable amount of time and effort that goes into weddings. No matter how big or small, it’s an investment. But what happens to the extravagant décor, dresses, and wedding arrangements couples spend months of time and money on for just one day? Weddings are such a monumental event in a couple’s life. Here are some ways to incorporate wedding mementos into creative interior design projects when moving into or redecorating your home!
- Frame your vows.
Professionally print your vows and place them in matching, high-end frames to hang in your bedroom. This is an easy memento to serve as a daily reminder of the importance of your partnership while adding a personal touch to your home.
- Frame your wedding dress.
If your home has the wall space, consider preserving the gown by framing it. Though it may seem a bit fairy tale-esque, it can make for an interesting statement piece in any room. After all, it’s one of the most expensive and glamorous garments a woman will purchase in her lifetime. You can frame your actual dress or you could simply frame high-res images of the dress and tuxedo next to one another—maybe next to the framed vows?
- Save the bouquet and boutonniere.
Foliage from bouquets and some boutonnieres can be easily dried and preserved. They can be used to embellish other floral arrangements in your home or add light details to shelf space where you might keep photos or other decorations.
- Use custom marquee lights.
Marquee lights are a timeless option that add an opulent touch to any room. The bold, bright contrast of marquee lights is classic and makes any wall space more interesting. Select your initials or a meaningful word or date.
- Embrace chalk board art.
If you use a chalk board for your wedding reception to welcome guests, turn the chalk design into a work of art! Chalk boards add an entertaining twist to any room. It could be an eye-catching contrast to a gallery wall (or spark the creation of a gallery wall) in your home as well.
- Purchase furniture that lasts.
Often, couples will invest in furniture as a finishing touch to their wedding venue to display signage, party favors, gifts, and a wedding cake. Invest with a long-term mentality and purchase quality furniture that can be used in your future home.
