Darcy Miller of Martha Stewart Weddings talks about her do-it-yourself wedding scrapbook. I like the idea of the scrapbook being almost a ‘time capsule’ and recording what was happening in popular culture around the time of your marriage. By the same token the idea of pasting the front page from a newspaper printed on the day you get married insures that in 50 years time you and your husband can have those ‘wow, did people really used to wear that?’ and ‘Oh yes I remember that Britney Spears girl. Bit troubled wasn’t she?’.
And its a good way to keep all those bits of paraphernalia from your wedding like menus and suchlike in one place.
