    in the newest magazine from martha stewart, her destination one, there is these super cute and easy lounge chairs she made out of pretty paper. i am using that i think. my FI got introduced in one of these chairs. so i thought it would be fitting.

      Our tables will be matched up to the Mission Impossible Kissing Game we are going to play. The tables will be
      - Mission Bride Trivia - have to answer Bride Trivia
      - Mission Groom Trivia - Have to answer Groom Trivia
      - Mission Dance - Have to dance to a certain song
      - Mission Drink - Have to get a round of shots for their table and another
      - Mission Renactment - Have to dramatize the first time my FI picked me up!
      - Mission Sing - Sing a song about love

          Hey Mel -

          This is something that we did last month at our wedding for place cards... very similar to your idea if this helps give you a better visual...
          our guests loved it and thought that it was so cute.

          the parasol umbrellas wouldn't stay open and were very hard to write directly on them. so i then improvised and wrote our guests name's and tables they were at on sticker paper (blank labels) and cut them to size... then opened the umbrellas that day and stuck on the names and it kept the umbrellas wide open. I stuck them directly into flower foam board and covered it all up with sand as the last step

            Forgive me for being a dum dum but what do you name the tables for? I was thinking that you just put a place card in front of each plate, but is there something else I should be doing? How does a guest know what table name they go to? I think there are lots of really cute ideas, just kind of not sure what I am supposed to be doing here.

              LOL. You crack me up! It depends on the number of guests and how many tables. We're only have about 26 guests at our wedding and everyone is sitting family style at one long rectangular table, so I will have a maraca with each of their names on a tag at each place setting. But, if you have separate tables, it's probably best to have the place cards when they enter which give them their name and also the table in which they're sitting. Traditionally, tables would have numbers. However, some couples are more creative and name their names after a place, a quote, etc. So the place card could say..."Sarah Smith, Table "Las Vegas". Just an example. Make sense?

                Such great ideas everyone. I was pretty sure I wanted to do places we've visited as we have traveled a ton since we've been together. But the drink parasol idea is also very tempting. The photos look amazing.

                  There are some great ideas here! I like the places visited together & those little drink umbrellas are too cute! And the mission impossible game is going to get everyone going!

                    Those look so cute, thanks for posting a pic! Thanks for the tips too! I haven't started to write guest names yet so that's definitely helpful to know for when I do make the labels. I know that when I opened a few umbrellas a couple were having trouble staying open.

                      I want to do pictures of our dogs! :) They are our babies, so I wanted to incorporate them somewhere. :)
