Your wedding day is likely to be the most important and magical day of your life, (unless you are one of the 1 in 20 married adults who believe they married the wrong person, according to a Direct Line survey) but as everyone will tell you, it goes far too quickly! All the planning in the lead-up to the big day and it will be over in just 24 hours! Half of the fun, however, is looking back on it, so here are four memorable ways to document your wedding day.

Social Media

We live in a world where everyone has a smart phone and documents their everyday lives on social media, so why not put that to use in your wedding? Find a unique wedding hashtag that represents your day, but isn’t being used by anyone else and promote this to your guests for them to upload their photographs, status’ and videos. Then, when the day has passed, you can spend some time looking through them all in one place.

Setting up a Snapchat geolocation filter or frame is also really easy and will encourage guests to take more pictures on the big day. These will be completely different to your professional pictures and offer a side of the day you might not have seen.

A shadow box

You spend so much on all the little bits and bobs for your wedding, it seems a shame to just let them get dusty in a box never to be seen again. A shadow box is an easy and beautiful way to display these things and a fun DIY project to keep you busy.

Fill a shadow box with special things from the day such as some dried flowers, your order of services, a cork from some champagne, your husband’s pocket square, some confetti, perhaps something from the table decorations. It will make a lovely display in your house and remind you of the special day. If you want to go all out, there are places that will even hang your wedding dress in a huge frame to display!

A quirky cake topper

A fun and unusual cake topper, depicting you and your new husband or wife is the perfect keepsake to remember your day. A clay model of the two of you, doing your favourite things and dressed in your wedding clothes will look fantastic on your cake and then, in years to come, as an ornament on your fireplace – a great talking point!

Creative photography

After your wedding day, the only things you’ll have left are your memories, so photos and videos are really important. There are loads of creative, memorable ways you can do this instead of, or in addition to, a professional team.

For example, a photo booth is a lot of fun and allows your guests to take photos with silly props – you can set one up yourself or hire a company in. Put disposable cameras on the tables and encourage your guests to take photographs, although be warned that not all of them will be good and it’s not always cheap to get a lot of them developed. Set up a GoPro somewhere secret where it will capture all the action, or make a video booth and ask your guests to leave messages like a digital guest book.

There are so many fun and creative ways to document your big day that will bring you joy to look at for many years to come. Do you have any other ideas? Leave them in the comments!
