Stuff like cards...
I've found a box file with acceptance cards/letters and stuff like that.

Yeah, I kept quite a bit. A friend bought me a wedding memories box as a present, so I started collecting stuff in the planning days. I kept our engagement cards, wedding cards, and rsvps. I also kept one of the wooden fans, wooden hearts and some of the table stuff. Along with things like our ring box and my garter etc. it's full to the brum with stuff really.

Yeah I kept loads of stuff - what a fool I was! However I still haven't got rid of it because I think of keeping it for the children's sake.

Yes, I have. Like imp, a friend bought us a wedding memory box, so that has all the acceptance cards, gift tags, wedding cards, etc in, along with our table plan, table names, a copy of the table quiz we did, some confetti from the tables, my blue garter, my tiara, bits like that. I have still got my wedding planning file, and of course official and guest photos from table cameras. And we were given 8 (I'm not sure why!) copies of our wedding DVD, so one copy is in there too. I also have my dress and one of the bridemaid's dresses -I never had my dress cleaned, so it is a memento in itself really - the muddy puddle stain, where I put my heel through my dress on the way into church, the red wine stain down the bottom of the front - it tells it's own story :)

Similar to Catarina, but my stuff is just in a cardboard box. There examples of the menu, table names, OofS, invites, rsvps, all our cards from engagement, wedding and 1st anniversary. My garter which snapped and fell off in the church, our guest book, a cd of photos, some flowers from my bouquet, Hs button hole. I still have my dress & veil in the wardrobe, I wear my shoes on nights out, H still has his suit though it doesn't fit him anymore! My bouquet is in my art room on display. Our two photo albums are on our bookcase, I like to look at them every do often. I can't imagine ever throwing them.

Yes. We also have the gift and card we gave to father in law as he sadly passed away 1 month after the wedding .

The dress is lurking at the back of the wardrobe. I still use the candle holders we had on the tables. Think I still have the wedding cards somewhere. But most of it I got rid of the other year when I found them again.

I've got a wedding memory box too and saved pretty much everything! A copy of all the stationery, jewellery and tiara, all our acceptance and wedding cards, guestbook, favour boxes and napkins and my planning journal. I'm really sentimental and keep everything! Dress is in a box with my shoes and handbag.

Oh yes I have the shoes as well and have worn them since. They are pink and purple coloured embroidered with sequins so not a traditional wedding shoe.

Like lots of others we have a memory box I was given when planning and it's got cards, copy of table plan, and things like that in it

so I'm not a sentimental old fool to want to keep a box worth of stuff?

No way, I think it's lovely to keep it. I love stumbling across it and always spend 10 minutes looking through it all.
