I’d like to share this wonderful idea for any of you attending weddings this summer. This idea comes from our friend Lara who mailed my husband and me a package on our first wedding anniversary. We couldn’t believe she remembered our anniversary, let alone sent a gift! When we opened it, it was filled with the save the date, invitation, program, table cards, and other memorabilia from our wedding one year earlier. It was such a thoughtful, sweet gesture and we had so much fun looking through all of the items on our anniversary.
Her gesture meant so much to us, I decided to do it for my dear friend who got married last year. I tried to save as much as I could from her wedding, including the invitations, informational cards, and save the date.
At the wedding, I remembered to save little things like the wine glass tags, monogrammed napkins, and other little items.
Then I just stored it for the year and made sure to mark my calendar for the following year to remember to mail it out with a Happy Anniversary card.
I hope you keep this wonderful idea in mind for any upcoming weddings you are attending. It is so fun and is such a thoughtful gesture that your friends won’t forget. I know we didn’t!
