I framed our save the dates and my bridal shower invite. They are both hanging to the left of our computer desk in our ‘office’ which is actually our dining room. I had no doubt I would want to also frame my wedding invitation. That was until I came across this post on the awesome blog, Young House Love. This couple who recently became parents have a fabulous blog which mainly focuses on DIY home projects and decor. There is also a link at the top to view information about the fabulous DIY wedding on a budget they had. Here is their wedding shadow box –
So I headed to the local crafts store and purchased a 14×14 unfinished shadow box for around $13.00. I also purchased some scrapbook paper in my wedding colors. My husband painted the shadow box for me, I gathered my wedding goodies, and was ready to put it all together.
I LOVE how it turned out and appreciate the ‘model’ from Young House Love who helped to inspire me to create this fabulous piece of art I will cherish forever. If you are already married hopefully this will inspire you to gather your wedding goodies to display and if you are getting married…start a pile of wedding goodies you can use to keep your wedding mementos!
