    Well you can always frame the original and keep it somewhere more private in the home – on your desk, on a dresser or armoire, if you have a more decorated closet you could keep it on a shelf in there.

    I would type it up on the computer in a font that you love and print it on paper that you love and frame it. I also would include a by line indicating who authored it.

    I don’t think anyone could or would ever be offended by your choosing to do this.  However, I would also  keep the original in a place where you keep sentimental things such as special cards and letters so that you’ll always have the original document as a keepsake, and I would make certain to tell your sisters that you kept it. Another option would be to keep the original behind the new one (and perhaps an additional piece of cardboard, if the original document is too dark and would show through the new one) in the frame.

    @Brielle:  I like this idea. Frame the copy, keep the original.

    Have them redo it.  Tell them you want to frame it and the original doesn’t fit in the frame, or it doesn’t match, or it’s faded… whatever.  She will be more excited that the poem still means something to you and you want it framed than be upset you ask her to rewrite it. This is a very cute idea by the way!!!

    I would frame the orignial and put it on a desk or somewhere else in the house rather than on the wall. It is kind of a cute story to say that they wrote a poem on a paper they found in their suitcase and they had so much love that they could creat such a heart felt poem on the spur of the moment. Personally, I would keep the original but I don’t think you could go wrong either way. 

    Another option is to put it in your wedding book? So someday when you flip through the wedding pictures you have it right there to read.
