So it’s true. Your wedding day is one of the best days of your life. It’s full of family, friends, love and fun. It is a day full of memories and a day celebrating the love of your life, for the rest of your life. It is awesome, let me tell you! As a Bride, you spend countless hours picking the perfect floral, the coordinating linens, the yummiest foods, the music, the dress… the list goes on. I know that when I planned my wedding every detail mattered to me, it didn’t matter how big or small. I have some of the most gorgeous photos from Mint Photography that I can flip through when I want to reminisce, but what is special to me is that throughout my house, I have repurposed parts of my wedding so that my husband and I can remember our wedding, day in and day out. I wanted to share some ideas and pictures of things from our wedding that I have displayed in our home.
One of my favorite things from our wedding was my five wedding cakes, yes we had five and they were all equally beautiful and equally special. My Grandmother, at age 83 baked and decorated all of them. Yes, you read that right…83! As you can imagine I really treasured the cakes and memories associated with them. Since I can’t keep wedding cakes sitting around for the next 50 years of my life, I repurposed our cake toppers.
The amazing work of my sweet Grandmother:
I framed the wooden XOXO topper and the rhinestoned L in black frames and backed with black glitter paper. These will be apart of a picture collage in our upstairs theatre room.
Our deer cake topper is nestled in the basket in the bathroom. I happen to love this pop of personality! 🙂
We had custom pictures frames made to display our engagement photos at the reception. I adore them and the lady who created them for us. They are now on display in the hallway leading to our room.
Last but not least, the cartoon, diva version of me now lives on my closet wall. When I asked my Bridesmaids to stand by my side, I asked them with these really cute paintings representing each of their personalities. Every morning when I go pick out my outfit for the day, I am reminded of my best day of my life and all the wonderful women that stood by my side!
We would love to hear and see some of your ideas! If you have repurposed any of your wedding memories and would like to share them, please email me at Katelyn@lifestyledevents.com. Your wedding may only be one day, but the memories will last a lifetime!
