Whether you’re still in the throes of wedding planning or you’re already sporting your newlywed glow, there’s one thing everyone can agree on: getting married is hard work.

And we’re not even talking about the process of finding Mr. or Ms. Right (which is whole other post for another day).

Nope, we’re solely referring to the massive undertaking of finding THE perfect everything: date, venue, dress, shoes, cake and the list goes on and on and on.

You can capture so much of your hard work through your amazing wedding photos, but the one special thing that usually gets forgotten? The ever-so-important invitation.

You put so much thought behind your invites, and for good reason, as they’re the first peek your guests will be getting into your big day. So why wouldn’t you want to preserve such a special symbol of your wedding that’s near and dear to your heart?

Anyone can frame their invite, but we’ve rounded up three more unique ways to preserve your pretty, custom-made wedding invitation to make sure it stands the test of time.

Make a wedding invite ornament

Turn your wedding invite into an ornament to hang on your tree for your first Christmas together as a married couple. Even better, this idea is ideal for your one-year anniversary gift, which is the “paper” gift. Here’s a step-by-step DIY guide to get you started.

Turn it into a custom print

Transform your invite into a work of art using Plywerk, who will preserve it onto gorgeous eco-conscious bamboo wood for a simple, clean and beautiful keepsake. Plywerk makes the whole process super easy—just mail them your invite directly, or scan it and they’ll print, mount and ship the masterpiece right to your front door.

Add it to a glass keepsake box

We love this simple and elegant keepsake in the form of a glass box to hold your dearest photos and heirlooms from your wedding. Your invitation is sealed between two thin sheets of glass on the top to forever commemorate your special day.
