Preserving Memories

With the wedding behind me, there are lots of different pieces from the big day that still need to find a home.  Most items related to my wedding have already been taken care of, but I still have some stuff to consider.

This past week I finally received my wedding photo album.  I had gotten the photos a month after the wedding but it took me some time to get my act together to design my album.  I went a non-traditional route and created a book instead of an album.  The book reminded me of all the photos I used to print.  It’s been probably about 4 years since I printed photos, relying on the digital world as my archive.  But it made me feel like I should print more photos, just in case.

The other major item that I still need to deal with is my wedding dress.  I already know I want to preserve it, but I just haven’t gotten around to it.  Some people have told me to try and sell it, that it will just sit in my closet for the rest of my life.  I know that they are right, but for me, it doesn’t matter.  This is the most important, most expensive item I will ever wear and I just can’t let go of it.

There are just some things you can’t let go of.  The truth is, sometimes you need tangible items to keep memories alive.  My husband and I have been watching our wedding and honeymoon video quite often specifically for this reason, and we have agreed to watch it every year on our anniversary. Because let’s face it. Our memories aren’t going to preserve themselves!
