1. SHARE THE LOVE
After the wedding day why not consider donating aspects of your big day? Kaitlyn and Callum‘s wedding planner Rachael of The Events Lounge arranged to donate their flowers to a local nursing home.

2. PRESERVE THE MOMENT
If you want to preserve your bouquet after the wedding, professional flower preservation is the way to go. Presented in a beautiful glass case with other significant items, it will take pride of place alongside your wedding photo.

3. GOWN LOVE
Give your gown a new lease of life after the wedding by customising it to a cocktail length so you can wear it again. Or, talk to your photographer about a sophisticated take on “trash the dress”.

4. MINI MOON
Not everyone has the time or budget for a month-long European sojourn as their honeymoon. Consider close-to-home locations and look for package details which might involve a shorter stay but remain luxe when it comes to accommodation and extras. Check out the divine collection of accommodation perfect for a romantic getaway on Holidays For Couples.

5. THE PARENT ALBUM
After the wedding, ask your photographer about this customised thank-you treat for mum and dad, full of all the shots you know they’ll love.

6. THE REUNION EPISODE
Host a dinner party or brunch for the key players in your big day… one year after the wedding. It’s a great way to see everyone again and reflect on the year that was. You’ll be surprised at how much can happen to everyone in those 12 months. New houses, new hook ups, new jobs, new additions to the family!
