Your wedding day should be both exciting and nerve-wracking. With everything you have to remember, a checklist is key in making sure you have everything you want.
If you’re clueless about unique and fun activities to put on your checklist, don’t worry. There are tons of options. We’ve put together 13 activities to help you preserve your wedding memories.
1. Bridal subscription boxes
The best wedding subscription boxes combine fun and effective wedding planning. This wedding check-off list is essential because it’s basically a box full of surprises to make your day memorable. Many bridal services offer bride box subscriptions, such as the Miss to Mrs. Bridal box.
Ladies getting married get to enjoy nine themed boxes from the ‘engagement’ box to a ‘honeymoon’ one. Each box is carefully curated to cater to a specific wedding stage. These bride boxes contain beauty and spa essentials, cute bags for shopping, jewelry, decor items, planners, tips, guides, and inspiration.
This wedding subscription box can be on a monthly, extended, accelerated, or quarterly plan. Brides can get one box per month, one box in two months, two boxes per month, or a box in three months respectively. Miss to Mrs also caters to couples of all sexualities, and prioritize efficient delivery.
2. Exit on a high note
Wedding entrances are exciting parts of weddings. Why not make your exit even more breathtaking? Leave your venue under the loud bangs of fireworks. Other options are a serenade, petals, or confetti. You’ll never forget it.
3. Capture everything on tape
Insist that your wedding coverage team doesn’t miss a thing. The secret moments, everyone’s smiles, emotional faces, people chatting, all of it. These little things can make you nostalgic in a matter of minutes.
4. Go back to where you got married
A beautiful way to make your wedding memories last is revisiting where you took your vows, maybe. You can do this at random times of the year, we suggest doing it on your anniversary. And if you plan to have kids, always visit with them. The place has become your sacred spot. Revisiting where your journey to forever began is a great way to bond.
5. Create a memory box
Get a box and throw in bits and pieces from random souvenirs from your wedding into it. Contents of your box may include the invite, place cards, bouquet, boutonnières, napkin, program, some wedding gifts, and anything else. This is quite a sentimental box or trunk of keepsakes.
6. Choose an unconventional venue
For something more memorable, choose a unique venue. You can book out your favorite cinema, racecourse, or stadium for your dream wedding. Maybe the place you met, or the place you went on your first date. Even the guests won’t forget this in a hurry.
7. Plant and bond
If you and your partner love to plant or garden, groom a tree right in your home. Immediately after the wedding, plant a tree or pots of herbs together and watch them grow. It is symbolic and serves as a reminder of the depth and longevity of your love. There’s nothing as rewarding as eating the fruits and vegetables from your garden, let alone if you grew them with your spouse.
8. Set up a wedding video booth
We’ve seen quite a lot of photo booths, but hardly any video booths. Take advantage of these new trends and wow your guests with one. Leave a video booth where they can goof and narrate fun stories about you two. Edit and compile these videos into a single file. Watch them in later years and laugh your hearts out. It’ll be a wonderful way to make and revisit memories for you and all your guests.
9. Learn a new skill
Giving the guests a memorable experience can change the face of your wedding. Go beyond sweet music and cake cutting to learn something new. Broaden your horizons! Options include a cooking class, pottery or sculpting, creating custom cocktails, and more.
10. Create art from your wedding pictures
Once your wedding pictures are delivered, fix them onto card stock or board canvass and hang them in your home. Another option is to carefully create an electronic scrapbook with the pictures. They will serve as keepsakes of beautiful memories for years to come.
11. Create a custom playlist
Creating a custom playlist ensures that you have all your special songs ready for the big day. Build a playlist full of songs that mean everything to the both of you. It should include you and your spouse’s favorite songs, your love song to each other, engagement song, etc. Play it on your wedding day and every year after as a reminder of your love.
12. Wear a new scent
For your big day, wear a new scent. Scents are hypnotic and unforgettable. Your spouse will always remember how you knocked their socks off with your smell. And, you can always keep the bottle as a souvenir.
13. Opt for a guest book
Choose a modern guest book with spaces for guest names, best wishes, and advice. Have the guests fill the book with their well-wishes. This book will serve as a reminder of your loved ones who helped make your day. Imagine, twenty years from now, sending your best friend a photo of what she wrote in your guest book the day of your wedding.
All these activities are fun, unique, and help preserve your wedding memories. Do you have any other ideas?
