Memorializing Your Wedding Vows
The vows that a couple exchanges during their wedding are the highlight of the ceremony. For couples that choose to write their own vows, this is the part of the occasion most likely to require careful thought and planning. After putting all this work into preparing memorable and meaningful vows, consider creating a beautiful print for your home that includes the words you said to one another. This is a lovely personalized gift that makes a heartfelt anniversary present or couple’s wedding gift. You can have this customized poster matted and framed for display at home or left unframed for inclusion in a shadow box or scrap book. There are lots of ways to make your wedding day vows part of your daily married life.
Framing Your Vows
If either member of the couple has experience with graphic design, it will be the effort of only a few hours to create a lovely DIY project ready for printing. Remember that print shops prefer resolutions of 300 dpi or higher for optimal results. Experiment with different type faces, paper colors, and decorative borders. Simply ensure that the image you create will fit onto a standard sized sheet of paper (printer or legal size is best) before bringing your image to a print shop or uploading it to an online art editor.
Creating a Shadow Box
Shadow boxes are lovely pieces of art that you can make at home. Simply print out your vows and assemble another few items:
Arrange these items in a harmonious manner, securing items if necessary with acid-free adhesives. Mounting items on small spacers will create a dimensional appearance. This is just one of the great ways to celebrate your love for one another and showcase the words you exchanged on that special day.
