Weddings are a beautiful part of our lives. Your BIG day is priceless and deserves to be documented not just in your memories but in creative scrapbook layouts and safe long-lasting environments. Keeping your wedding invitations, licenses, and memorabilia tucked away in a box may not only be causing them harm but you're less likely to pull them out and re-live all of the great memories. Here are a few tips to help you properly preserve your wedding documents and enjoy them day after day.

Looking for Exceptional Chicago Wedding Albums Photographs?

1. If you have old documents that have been stored either rolled up or folded, take care to flatten them before copying and storing. Documents can become very brittle without proper care. If they are rolled, restore moisture by placing them in a humid environment for several hours to make them more flexible checking often to ensure no ink is bleeding or that the document does not become saturated. Stop the process if further damage is being caused. Carefully unroll or unfold the document and flatten between pieces of blotting paper with a heavy object (a large book) on top. Be patient, this process may take a few days but will be worth it for the everlasting results.

2. DO NOT laminate! Lamination is an irreversible decision that may seem like an easy preservation solution but actually accelerates the chemical aging process. Using archival page protectors or photo sleeves to hold layouts is a great way to keep memories safe.

3. Using wedding document originals that are possibly already damaged can cause further damage to both the document and a layout. Make quality copies on archival paper to use in your artwork and store originals in archival boxes or albums placed in moderate temperature with relative humidity and away from direct light (both natural and artificial). Do not store them in damp places like attics or basements.

4. After making copies, create layouts with the documents and use photos to illustrate the special day. You can even create layouts with no photos using just the documents and your creativity. Include wedding documents in wedding albums to help tell the entire story of the beloved couple. One day another generation will be able to look through your albums and know who got married when, to whom, and where. Many of us don’t have the opportunity to find out some of this information from past relatives. Once someone leaves us, the information and memories may be lost forever. You can avoid losing your past by continuing or beginning scrapbooking.

It is a rewarding and enjoyable way to show your family now and in the future how much you care. Since weddings mark the beginning of so many lives, make yours and those whom you love truly special by documenting weddings safely, beautiful, and forever.
