How to Remember Your Wedding Day Forever

Getting ready for their Port Gamble wedding

The day you walk down the aisle with your soulmate is the most important day of your life, and you want every detail to be etched into the pages of your memory. However, for many couples, it is a day filled with so many powerful emotions that the day passes by in a blur. Here are three ways to ensure that your special day is fully documented and preserved forever.

Hire an Experienced Wedding Photographer

Weddings are expensive, and you may be looking for ways to cut costs. Feel free to save money on things like the venue, the cake, the decorations, and the food. However, one area where you absolutely don’t want to skimp is your wedding photographer. Your wedding pictures will preserve each memory, and a professional photographer who is experienced with weddings will know exactly which images to capture. They will know how to produce high quality images in a variety of lighting, and they will be proficient at taking beautiful candid shots.

Get Your Photos Printed

In the digital age, it is easy to keep your photos locked within the confines of your cell phone. Wedding photos, however, deserve to be printed and displayed. Printed wedding photos are a tangible reminder of your love and commitment. A professional photo lab can print photos on a variety of surfaces. Some popular options are to print and frame a large photo of just the two of you. Many couples also enjoy creating a photobook that captures all the memories from the day. This is a great way to display and share images of your special day with the people you love.

Document Your Wedding in a Wedding Journal

While a picture says a thousand words, your actual words detailing your journey of love will mean the world to you and your family for generations to come. There are many wedding journal styles and formats to choose from. Most will provide prompts for you to jot down details about everything from the proposal to the honeymoon, with space to record your thoughts and include favorite pictures and keepsakes. A wedding journal will be a precious reminder, not just of the events leading up to and surrounding your special day, but of your thoughts and feelings along the way.

Don’t let the memories of your day fade. Yes, the precious moments will be stored in your heart, but those memories deserve tangible documentation that will never diminish. You will never regret pictures taken or memories captured, you will only regret the ones you missed out on.
