Absolutely! That's a very good point. Thanks!

Jaykay – Do you by chance have a finished product of your finger print tree? I’m working on something similar but I like the idea of putting names on it too.

Just curious if it would look too crowded with names? Any feedback on this? I would love to frame this as art in our home after.

I do have a picture of it all done and framed.  Here it is:

That looks fabulous! What a great idea. I'm thinking of using this (if you don't mind of course!)

      Great planning thread!    Love the steel drum cd idea!  I was trying to think of what to do about ceremony music just this morning.

      I am so happy we did the finger print guestbook.  I have it framed in our house and love it more and more each day!

          Hi! I need to get in touch with you! I just read through everything you posted, it's so detailed and perfect! 

          I'm from Alberta too (Edmonton), and we are getting married at GBP in the beginning of December! I have so many questions!

          We were offered the gazebo as a place for a dance following dinner, would you recommend this? Did you enjoy the disco as an alternative?

          Where did you have your dinner? Was it semi private or did you rent out an entire restaurant? Were you still able to have speeches/a slideshow/etc? Was it strange having other diners nearby? Did you like the decor that the resort arranged for you?

          I would LOVE to hear from you! Email is easiest for me; kavadreams@hotmail.com

          Hope to talk to you soon!

          Chelsea
