Weddings over... What to keep?

Recommended Posts

So Im noticing myself having a really hard time letting go of anything thats related to my wedding. Its been over 2 months and my little house is beyond cluttered with this stuff, but I just cant part with most of it. I find myself making excuses to keep it when my husband tells me I need to get rid of it! I cant even have guests come stay over because my spare room is so packed with all this. The holidays are fastly approaching so that means lots of relatives to come visit so I guess this is the only thing thats gonna light a fire under me! I was just wondering what everyones mandatory must keeps are after their wedding. Ex: veil, cake cutting utensils, ring bear pillow, flower girl basket stuff like that. Thanks!

I would keep some mementoes (like one of your wedding favours, a travel mug or two, your cake topper, etc.). I have a dress box that I put a few other mementoes in and although I still have my dress, I'm not emotionally attached to it and may sell or donate it. I think the important thing is to let go of the decorative stuff, as you probably have plenty of plenty of pictures of the decor and you don't need it clogging up your space.

I'm going to be the same as you. I think the best thing is just to keep enough to fill a shoe box. Things such as an invitation, place name etc. I'm going keep alot of my planning stuff aswel which I think would be nice to look back on.

 

I wanted to get my boquet preserved and put it in a frame or something but obviously with having a DW it won't be possible, unless I could locate a local florist which is probably unlikely. x

I think you've got some great advice here. Pick a box, and no matter what, anything you're going to keep has to fit into that box (aside from you wedding dress, of course).

This is wedding #2 for me.  The things I kept from my first wedding were video, pictures, ring-carrier's pillow, unity candle, champagne goblets, copy of the program and our invitations.  My daughter has looked through the stuff several times and enjoyed doing so - I also have my dress and veil from my first wedding which my 14-year old says is "out of style" now -- so no chance of her wearing it, I guses.  So I'd say just keep the stuff that is really sentimental to you -- or you could see your kids using one day.

Well don't feel bad about not getting to it soon ... it's been over a year and I haven't gotten rid of anything yet (also drives my husband crazy). I had/have high hopes of using some of it ... like the starfish I think I'll use to decorate a photo wall ... but I do need to part with some of it ... great reminder ;) LOL

 

P.S. Kendall ... second for me too and my daughter loves looking through anything I have left from marriage to her daddy ... (lost some of it in a house fire). I too kept my dress but instead of possibly making her feel obligated to wear it ... I'm thinking of making her something out of the fabric ... a small pillow or as a cover to a photo album or something like that ;)

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
