I have a shadow box and our guest book hanging next to each other. I also use the vases of our centerpieces as decoration

Yes, we have our guest book on display, which was a canvas picture of a  tree and our guests signed the leaves. We also did a glass sand ceremony so we have the vases that held the sand on display and we have the artwork that we turned our glass sand into. So we poured it in one case and then sent it out afterwards and someone created a heart sculpture out of it. It’s really cool.

We have our cake topper on our fireplace mantle and our arch will be set up in the yard/garden area.

From  my first wedding, my veil was draped over the mirror  above my dresser. We had our marriage cert  and two photos framed. A jar of sand from the beach we married on. And two candle holders we put in the China cabinet.

Our invitation is framed and hung in our bedroom.

xraychick01 :  I grew the succulents from my bouquet but that’s all aside from a few photos. My guest book was a puzzle with the box signed, so while it’s easily reachable, I wouldn’t say it’s displayed.

We eloped on the beach, so these little floral arrangements and votive holders are the only decor we had. When I made them I was sure to make something that would look nice when we brought it home.

We got married 10 days after Christmas so we kept a bunch of stuff to use as Christmas decorations. We also had some mountain wood cut outs that I plan to put on our mantle above the fireplace. We have a centerpiece displayed in our bathroom because it was really my general decorating style and I love how it looks!

We haven’t gotten married yet, but there are a few keepsakes we picked with displaying them in mind. Our guestbook is a poster styled after a 70’s travel poster to that area, with our name and date on it. We’ll get it framed and display it in our living room. We also got extra favors to keep for ourselves. Our favors are a customized tote bag (they say “Welcome to *WeddingCity*” and the each family’s name on it, so nothing about us/our wedding), a bottle of wine for each adult with a customized label (says “thanks for celebrating with us” and our names/date), and a luggage tag with their initials embossed (since it’s a destination wedding). So, I got us a tote bag with our names on it, each of us a luggage tag, and we’ll keep an extra bottle of wine as a keepsake and never drink it. 

Photos:

Bag style, though a different state (except there’s no date, and instead of our names, it would say “John, Jane, and Emily Smith” so that each family grabs their bag)

Wine labels: 

Luggage tags similar to this (except only first and last initials, since I didn’t want to track down that many middle names!)

 

And finally, this is the style of our guest book poster:

 

Obviously, the tote bag and luggage tags won’t be “displayed” per se, but they’ll be heavily used. The wine will at some point go in a wine rack.

Do you have things from your wedding (besides photos) that you have on display in your home? 

My answer is short and sweet. No.

Nope. And the only photos we’ve had out were a couple of 5x7s.

I personally think that type of thing is corny, but then again I have zero framed pictures of my husband and I, we’ve received a couple framed pics from the wedding and they’re in our guest room…
