I have a VCR in my TV cabinet. I refuse to get rid of it. Without it, there would be no way to watch my childhood videos, that cheerleading competition from high school, or my VHS of Roger & Hammerstein’s Cinderella. Actually, now that I think about it, it might not even have the proper hook-ups for our futuristic smart TV. Oh well, one day I’m going to get those VHS tapes out, a million conversion cords, and get that thing to work.
Discs I didn’t save. No room to keep a giant computer tower with a disc drive. Good thing that even though no files I use today would even fit on a disc and I have no way of even properly using them, they are available for purchase! And….they come in bright, fun colors. In 15 years, will people be sticking thumb drives to the wall and marveling that they can get them delivered in five minutes by Amazon drone? Yep, definitely.
Until then, let’s all be amazed about how that technology that used to be cutting edge has been used to create a colorful backdrop for a wedding.
This is the last in the series of large scale backdrops I designed and styled for A Practical Wedding. We purchased the discs online and stuck them to the wall using poster putty. You can make the heart as giant as you want. See the detailed instructions over on A Practical Wedding.
