Ask just about any married couple and they'll say that their wedding day was a blur—a big, beautiful, wonderful blur. Luckily, wedding keepsake boxes allow you to save and relive those most precious moments. When shopping for a wedding keepsake box, keep in mind what you want it to store. Will a delicate dresser-top box hold the essentials? Or will a bigger box under the bed be more appropriate? If you're planning to store shoes or pieces of decor, go for the bigger box and some archival tissue paper. You can even choose to display some smaller items in a gallery-worthy shadow box or frame. No matter how much or how little you want to preserve, there's a beautiful box that's just right.
