Your wedding day will undoubtedly be something that you remember for the rest of your life. You’ll remember how you felt when you had that first dance with the person that you love, and you’ll remember your first kiss as a married couple, but the truth is that your wedding day is a little bit chaotic. Going from one place to the next, talking to all of your guests, the food, the speeches… by the time that the day is over, it can all seem like a bit of a blur.
It’s so important to hold onto the memories of your big day, and there are many ways that you can make sure that they aren’t lost in time. We’ve put down some simple tips here!
Have a note box for your guests
A clever little idea if you want to ensure that you get the perspective of all of your guests is to get a note box, and ask them to drop pieces of paper in with comments about your big day, and what they enjoyed. You could create little cards, so that they can fill out questions that you’ve asked specifically, if there’s anything in particular that you’d like to remember. You can also have a wedding book if you’d prefer to keep everything in one place, but either way, try to do something like this!
Put disposable cameras on the tables
For a different approach, why not try putting disposable cameras on the tables for your guests? Not only will this mean that they can capture things from their perspectives, but it shows you a side to your wedding that a photographer may not be able to capture. Sometimes, photography is about the relationship between the person taking the photograph, and the person in front of the lens, so it could provide you with a different side to your memories. It’s also really fun for your guests!
Hire a photo booth
When it comes to capturing moments in your wedding, a photo booth is a great idea, especially if you have a lot of props, and some willing (and probably drunk) participants. This is a really fun thing for your guests (and for you) and it allows you to get some pictures that aren’t as serious as the ones that you’d get from a professional photographer. Look into photo booth hire, and see whether you can find something that is perfect for when you tie the knot! It also adds a bit of a vintage vibe, too.
So, if you want to hold onto the memories from your wedding, why not try out these simple things? Sometimes, it’s good to see your big day from a multitude of perspectives, and having some fun photos to look back on is just as important as having the professional ones taken by a photographer. Having a book (or a box) for comments from your guests is also a good idea, as you can keep these comments forever.
Enjoy your wedding, and the memories that you can keep for decades to come!
