Many couples spend months planning every detail of their wedding day, potentially even years, but when the day arrives, they often find it goes by very quickly. Over time, it’s quite easy for your wedding day memories to become a bit of a blur, so it’s important that you find a way to remember those special moments. Here are some tips to help you out.

- Ticket stubs from your honeymoon
- A special item from the day such as your ‘something blue’
