After all the wedding festivities have come and gone, brides and grooms are left with a sweet reminder of all the love their friends and family showered on them the day of their wedding in the form of wedding cards. While these are such sweet notes that often contain heartfelt messages, most couples have no idea what to do with all of the cards they received from their engagement up to their wedding day. Because they’re such a meaningful reminder of all the love you felt on your wedding day, it’s almost impossible to just throw away all of those wedding cards, but keeping them in a box somewhere seems like such a waste too! Luckily, there are some great ideas on how to store wedding cards to make them accessible and cute enough to display in your home.
If you’re the creative type, using your wedding cards to make a scrapbooking-inspired book may be just the activity for you. Check out these tutorials to learn how to create a mini-album bound by a ring or a wedding book containing all of your wedding cards. In case those more hands-on crafting options are a little daunting, either making a keepsake box with your initials and the date of your wedding on it or purchasing one to hold all of your cards is a great option for storing. Although flipping through the cards is a little more difficult when they’re stored in the box rather than in a book, the box can easily be displayed in a stylish way and opened whenever you want to read a sweet note from family and friends.
