This is really a chance to relive your day all over again! And of course say a big thank you to all the amazing people who went above and beyond to make it happen – your suppliers. Reviews are a great way of helping other couples make an informed decision plus it’s fair to say after all the planning, you’re probs a bit of a pro and have some knowledge you can impart to others.

Your wedding is one of the most special days of your life so once it’s been and gone you’ll be looking for little ways to remember it. We love the idea of having a painting made in honour of your Big Day. Forever Wedding Paintings can transform a photo from your special day into a beautiful acrylic painting on canvas. Wedding Art can also create a one of a kind fine art oil painting inspired by you and your story with up to five key scenes such as where you met, your wedding venue etc. (They can also work with you ahead of the wedding if you want to display it on your Big Day.)
Another lovely idea is to preserve your bouquet and transform it into a beautiful and unique, meaningful piece of art for your home. Bouquet2Art can use your bouquets or buttonholes to create plaster casts that are either left in their natural colour, painted or gilded. And if you’re after a bit of a crafty project, check out some creative things you can do with your wedding cards here.

Thank you cards are a great trip down memory lane! It can be nice to take some time out to thank everyone who made the effort to join you and gave you a gift or card. You can also use it as a chance to relive your special day by printing off a pic of each guest with your cards as a sweet memento!

If you’re looking for a home for some of your prized wedding possessions, it can be nice to invest in a keepsake box. You can pop in all your wedding memorabilia from your planning notebook to your invite, a copy of your menu, your ceremony booklet and even a paper from the day you got married if you got one!
