Has anyone tried to make one of these? My MIL took some of our flowers from our archway, dried them and gave them to me when we got home in the hopes that I would create a shadow box of our wedding ... she must not know me too well - I'm not very creative/artsy blush2.gif - and I keep telling her I'm working on it when I haven't been and I know she wants to see the finished product.


I'm trying to put together a list of things to put in this shadow box, without it looking too full - so far I've come up with:


1. Roses (I think she brought 3 home)

2. Wedding Day timeline that I spent hours on and forgot to hand out to guests rofl.gif

3. Small container of sand from our wedding location

4. Picture of me and hubby from wedding day.


Does anyone have any more ideas that I can use? I did a google search and couldn't find anything that related (i.e. I don't have a garter or gloves)


Thanks ladies cheers.gif

Did you have a program from the ceremony?

Welcome letter?

CD of the music from the ceremony/reception

Picture of cutting the cake

Brochure of resort

Plane tickets

Cocktail napkin from reception

Room key

Anything you bought for the occasion and won't use again ("bride" tank top, etc)

That's a very cute idea! I think everyone gave you great ideas. How about your invitation, centerpiece material, your bouquet, wedding stationary, any DIY items, escort card, program, etc.

That's a great idea! Why not? Anything related to your wedding could go in there, rather than sitting in a box somewhere getting dusty - you can put it on display! I agree though, keep it simple, a few items that have meaning to you will look better than a mish-mash of stuff. :)

I did one for our invitation. We gave message in a bottle invitations so I just took an extra one with the scroll inside of it as well as an extra scroll flattened out so you can read it. I also included the flowers that I will be using in my bouquet. I hot glued them all to the inside of a deep shadow box. Looks pretty good and I'm no Martha ! You should have no problem at all!

Does anyone have a picture of their completed box? How big of a box did you use? I've seen shadow boxes at Michaels and they are only about 12-16" big and about 6" wide.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
