Making Memories Last

Journal - The KnotI was one of the last of my friends to get married, so of course I was always getting advice on what to do and what not to do. One of the best pieces of advice I had gotten came through a bridal shower gift.

I was given a beautiful journal with the advice for my husband and me to write down our wedding day memories together while relaxing on our honeymoon. So while sitting in a hammock overlooking the Caribbean Sea we did just that. It was a great way to capture our memories while they were still fresh in our minds, and we were still on our wedding “high”. We also took it one step further and wrote down our honeymoon adventures, (well the PG ones anyway). It was really cool to read again shortly after returning to the real world, it helped us stay in denial about being back. And almost two years later we can instantly relive our wedding day or travel back to the beaches of St. Lucia just by perusing a few pages in our journal.

Besides photos or video what are some of the ways you plan to preserve your wedding day memories?
