Homemade Wedding

We got a wedding invitation in the mail yesterday and it made me start to think / daydream about some of the fun ideas that we had when planning our own wedding oh so many moons ago. 1. Wine bottle guest book

This was the best! ย We bought 10 bottles of wine (ranging from cheap0 to more expensive for the 10 year anniversary bottle) and made labels that the guests signed for each year. ย Now, to celebrate our Anniversary each year, we have a bottle of wine ready and can read all of the signatures and messages from the guests of the wedding.

2. ย Table "places" instead of Numbers

Instead of doing tables with numbers, we decided to name the tables after our favorite places on earth. ย The tables' names were places we had traveled to together and we shared a funny story or memory on each table place card. ย This was a good way for guests to kill some time and read a little story in case they were feeling shy at their table :)

3. ย Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Favors - with homemade tags!

These were a fun way to give guests something to take home with them and included the information about the charities that we donated to in honor of several of our guests.
