    We got a mat and we had a very drunk groomsman write something on ours that totally pissed me off and almost ruined my night. So beware of the drunks in mexico that has already been drinking all day to get a wise idea to call the groom a dumb ass for getting married on OUR MAT!!

      I've seen many a mat ruined like that. Make sure someone takes the mat away by the end of dinner to help prevent the nasty comments.

        Good idea!! Mine is still in the closet - unused.
        Someone did see how upset it made me and added, I love you, you "dumb ass". So it made it a little better...but still.

          Can you draw over it? I had a friend that used a sharpie to color in a heart over a nasty comment.

            I wish I could. He wrote across the entire bottom of it - very large - nice huh.
            Sorry for the hijack!!

                We are making a guestbook on Blurb.com using lots of pictures of us from when we are dating. I am also adding some quotes on some of the pages from our favorite songs and some poems. Then some of the pages have lines on them for the guests to write on.

                  we are having guests mail us a postcard with advice/memories of the day while they are on Maui & we're going to put it in a photo album type book.

                    I saw a cool idea for an alternative guestbook the other day, definetly a DIY project.

                    Instead of having everyone sign their name, or having a wish jar and then have to put all those notes in an album, you get a sheet printed with questions on it for your guests to fill out. Some of the templates I've seen have a spot where you can either get a photo of the guests or you can have them draw a pic in the space.

                    You could ask questions like "how many kids do you think they'll have" or "where will they be living in 10 years" or just ask for advice.

                    I have a pic at work I'll try to upload tomorrow and the site that can do them up for you if you don't want to print it yourself.

                    This link is kinda on the same lines (not the original site for my inspiration):

                    I want one of those plates-where can i find one? i tried target-no luck. Thanks :)
                    I got mine from Target online - I don't know if they have them in the stores or not. But search for Palm Tree Plate or something like that - it should come up and then you can find similar things.
