What should i add to my DIY wedding journal?

by DIY wedding planner on August 4, 2012

Hi everyone… i’m planning on making my own wedding journal (make it personal) but i’m stumped as to what to add to it?

I found a journal that have spaces for things like ::
where/when did you meet?
first impressions?

we are only having a location wedding with no guests and a honeymoon BUT i still want a keepsake and i still need to do planning in terms of ceremony, location, flowers, a one table one off setting for just me and him, etc.

Thanks in advance!

oh also on a side note does anyone know of any sites where there are free ready made pages to add to my journal?

thanks again :)

Maybe add more things like:
first date
first kiss
first holiday together
first vacation together
first time you told each other you loved one another
When/how he (or you) proposed
First people you called to tell about the engagement
Your parents’ responses to the news
What your best friend said when you first told them
The importance-if any-of the wedding date you chose

Then you can add in pages of your wedding planning, like scrap book page with pics of your venue (off the website for before pics), the flowers you want, pics of your rings (if you have them) and all those little details. Kind of like an inspiration board that brides make before the wedding :)

Another cute idea would be to look through old emails/letter/text messages etc to find cute things your fiance said to you while you were dating and make a page with those quotes on it.

Depending on how your fiance proposed (or you proposed) you could make a page with exactly what he said to you before he actually popped the question-if anything-and what you said . You could add a pic of the engagement ring to the page as well :)

If you and your fiance are writing your own vows it would be nice to make a page with both of your vows on it so you can always go back and re-read them to relive the day!

I do not know of any free sites with ready made pages, sorry. Best of luck to you though! It sounds like you will have a lot of fun with your wedding journal! :D
