Make a Wedding Scrapbook!

Written by Lindsay Ropella

Whether she knows this or not, I actually got the idea to make a wedding scrapbook from my amazing mother. Sure, I have tons of wedding pictures in albums, frames, and on the computer; but what about all the other wedding memorabilia I’ve collected?

As I collected wedding information, contracts, and receipts, they all went into a big bag in my closet. One time as my mom and I were going through the bag looking for one of my wedding gown receipts, my mom commented that she wished she had her wedding receipts because it would be fun to see how things had changed from then to now. She knew they were probably stored somewhere in an attic or at my grandparents house, but finding them would definitely be a feat. It gave me the idea to put together some of the receipts and documents that I would want to save from the wedding like the receipt for my dress, contracts with the DJ and photographer, the guest list, my bridal shower and wedding invitations, and more!

It didn’t take very long to put together, and I’m glad that I have all these pieces from the wedding to look back on years from now and hopefully one day, share with my own daughter. :)

I just bought a scrapbook from Hobby Lobby when they were 50% off and found some fun details to add to the book just from my own craft collection.

Here are a few pictures from my wedding scrapbook! {Personal information and certain prices have been smudged out}

And lastly, here is the little box of wedding momentos I put together that don’t fit in the scrapbook.
