That’s beautiful! I definitely intend to do something like this after we’re married. For my parents’ 30 year anniversary we found the box my mom had stored her veil and the flower rope they used for their ceremony, and we also found the vest my dad had worn. We put all three in a shadow box along with a photo of them when they were younger and they loved it! It’s on display in their room now and it makes me smile every time I see it.

Yours has quite a few more things than theirs which I like and I’m purposefully not using real flowers in my bouquets specifically so I can save them for later. Not sure what else I’ll be putting in there as I intend to keep my hairpiece after and our cake topper will be displayed elsewhere, but I’m sure we’ll find plenty once it’s all done and over with.

That looks so lovely! I’d love to do a wedding shadow box but with my track record it’s more likely to be a wedding shoebox and an empty shadow box in the spare room….

classysexychic:  That’s gorgeous. I was wondering what a shadow box was. LOL…. I’m not sure if I will do one for my renewal or not. But your’s is sure inspirational enough to make me want to do one.

I did my wedding shadow box about 2 months ago (so almost a year and half after the fact, lol), and I am so proud of it! 🙂  It makes my DH and me smile every time we look at it.  I’m relieved to have done it too, because I really loved our invitation suite (DIY baby!) and I didn’t want all the elements to get lost.  I included the following:

– Envelope (just the back of one showing our return address stamp)

– Invitation (two separate ones to showcase the front image and interior wording)

– Map

– Response card

– Our cake topper

– Baby’s breath branch (we had a lot of baby’s breath in the wedding)

– One of the rubber stamps we used

– The twine and tag we used to wrap the suite together (the tag had our initials stamped on it)

– cork from our engagement

Our wedding card box doubles as a display box. Right now we just have the cake topper in it, but will be putting more into it later.  Probably  the Waterford crystal champagne flutes and engraved cake set. The box is is engraved with our names and wedding date.  I LOVE it.

I love these!  After I get married I am definitely going to do something like this!
