    Hello fellow brides!  I found this in a magazine and wanted to share.  We won't be doing specefic place cards at each seat, but I want certain guests at certain tables, so I think I'll be doing this as a DIY!

    Anyone else try this before?  Thoughts?!

      I can't help but to post the photo in here because I really find it awesome! I'm glad you've shared since it will add to my ideas for the wedding. I've saved the photo too on my computer and just read the details on the site.

        Thanks for posting the pic!  I haven't figured that out yet :-)  And instead of using a glass vase to hold the sand/bottles, I'm thinking of bringing a tray of some kind (wood maybe?) so it doesn't break in our luggage.  Haven't decided yet!

            Here are the bottles to use (they were listed in the Martha Stewart article)!  I haven't ordered them yet, waiting on a better head count, but when I do I'll let everyone know if the bottles are big enough to get paper in and out

              Hey guys. I found this picture too! It's perfect since we sent Message in a Bottle STDs I showed it to my florist and she's agreed to provide the glass bowl and sand. And since they are so cute, my fianc©e and I decided to use the as a guest book of sorts. We're going to have the guest's name and table number on one side and then have them write a message (like a wish or piece of advice) on the other side. We've toyed with a few ideas on what to do with them after the wedding. I love the idea of reading 1per year and then throwing it into the ocean.
              Forever could never be long enough for me to feel like i've had long enough with you

                LOVE this idea! I already had an idea for my seating cards (sand dollars), but I like the idea of using it as a guest book!! FABULOUS!

                  Such a fabulous idea! Thanks so much for posting!

                   

                  I was looking at the 'message in a bottle' stuff that they had a Micheal's but the bottles were so large and looked like really cheap plastic! These should be the perfect solution! 

                   

                  Looking forward to hearing how they turn out!

                      I had that same idea too after I saw the picture!  Let us know how they work out for those of you that are going to use this at your wedding
