    The shells are beautiful! I looked a lot of places and couldn't find nice ones.  Luckily, we went to Ocean City yesterday and a shop on the boardwalk had tons.  I bought a couple "scoops" and some awesome starfish!

We had two different versions of the Mad Lib - we printed them out on brightly coloured card stock and they were set up when people entered the reception.  I've attached a couple photos of the finished product below - so glad we did this, it is one of our favourite wedding keepsakes!


    I have to do this, especially we have a lot of writers coming to our wedding!

    I was thinking about doing to polaroid book, where guests take their picture post it in the book and then write a message.  But I can't find an afforable polaroid camera,  Any suggestions?

      We are planning on printing some postcard size papers where people will write their wishes for the Bride and Groom, then when we get home I am going to put them together in a book 

      I got the idea from ETSY here:



      But I am going to make my own and print them on card stock.

      Love the seashell signing, how unique! I ended up creating a guest signing book on Shutterfly with a bunch of pictures of my FI and I throughout the years as well as some of our engagement pictures. It turned out pretty great actually, I was impressed with the quality and how clear the pictures came out (considering not all were high resolution). It's a nice hard bound one like a coffee table book.

      We are doing a picture frame where you can sign for the actual wedding itself.  Then getting a group shot and then for the AHR I'm doing a guest book on shutterfly for the guests to sign and leave us notes.
