It is official: my brain is fried from making so many wedding decisions! I am starting to have trouble making the smallest decisions whereas I am normally a very decisive person! So I am turning for help on this one ladies!
So here is my dilemma: I am hiring a fabulous Etsy artist to custom make a pair of cufflinks for my hubby to be to wear on the big day featuring a sports ticket from our first date. The ticket is kind of big so she cant cut the original in a way that would showcase the logo and date- she would have to reduce it with a copier. I am torn do I lose the sentimental value of including the original in favor of being able to read the date and see the sports team logo or do I use the original and have a cool pair of offbeat looking cufflinks but lose the date and the clarity of what was used to make the cufflinks? Thanks for your vote!

I’d be inclined to say that if the original makes a cool, abstract design then go with that. Even if you can’t read the date and team. If it would just look odd (as in why would you make cufflinks that look like that) then use a copier.
And oh man, do I ever remember those days of complete fried-ness. Don’t worry. They do end. 😉

Haha- either way that is a VERY cute idea and extremely thoughtful, so don’t worry- you can’t go wrong!
What if you used the copy and then maybe use the tickets as a present later? For example for a year anniversary you could put your wedding program, the tickets and any other sentimental memory in a frame?
I understand the stress of wanting the “perfect” gift so if it’s really going to bother you not using the original tickets, just do it! I’m sure it will look great!

For the kind Bees that helped me decide here is the finished project. I ended up using the original ticket and I LOVE how they turned out! Thanks for the decision making help!

@Mrs.Tillmann: OH I just saw this! So great, I’m so glad you bit the bullet and used the real ticket!!
Do you mind me asking who did yours?
My Fiance proposed in our old apartment; and I was sad that we could never go back to the spot where he proposed. SOO before we moved out I pried up a little piece of the floor board in our closet and I want to make them into cufflinks for the ceremony and surprise him!
If you think this is something that your Etsy artist could do?
