Guests write advice/wedding wishes and on cards and drop in a tall vase. These messages will be organized into a scrapbook after the wedding
A photobooth-- (rented or faux with a hired helper) print 2 copies- one that they get to keep (favor!) and the other one they glue onto a scrapbook page and write well wishes around it. Provide props.
Guests sign a big plate that will be displayed at the bride and groom's home
A digital guestbook-- have two people take digital photos of my guests as they walk in. Guest will write something on a postcard type paper and after the wedding, the postcards can be scanned in and added to the photos to be compiled onto a digital photo frame.
Guests sign a mat board around a picture of the bride and groom
An old fashioned typewriter with strips of paper for guests to type their name and well wishes on.
Have five wine bottles (labeled 1-5) and silver sharpies for the guests to write on the bottles. The bride and groom will have wine to help celebrate their first five anniversaries.
A time capsule--- guests write down messages for the couple's 1 year, 5 year, and 10 year anniversary. The bride and groom seal them away in designated containers and open them on the appropriate anniversaries.
Rollodex--- Guests fill out their own address and information card to be filed into a rollodex.
Ceramic vase, bowl, platter, tray, etc with markers for guests to sign.
Skim through all our wedding ideas, and don't forget to refer to the checklist.
