Your wedding is over. You can breathe again! You’re as happy as you can be. The gifts are all open. Now you have a question. Do you keep wedding cards?

How Long Do You Keep Wedding Cards Up For?

The first question is how long you initially keep up your wedding cards. Even if you are not going to keep them forever you want to enjoy them and display them in your home to remember your most special occassion. You have placed them on your mantle. They are on your kitchen counter and maybe even displayed in your kitchen and living room for guests to see.

Keep your wedding cards up for as long as you like. That’s the answer. Don’t let anyone tell you that there is a time limit for displaying your wedding cards because you will want to remember your wedding moments for the rest of your life. Take as much time as you need to see them displayed in your home every day and then think about some new ways to repurpose them!

One idea is creating a wedding card book.

Unlike other greeting cards you receive, your wedding cards are meant to remember a moment for a lifetime. A wedding card book will accomplish the goal of keeping your wedding cards well preserved and readily accessible to stroll down memory lane. Your wedding card bok can be stored with your wedding photo book and your keepsakes.

Remember, you can always use the wedding cards with other items as well. For example, the following photo could also include a photo from your wedding. This is just an example but you can always use these items in conjunction to give them new life.
