Things We Love: Fun & Easy Guest Books

Posted by Jeffra on Feb 10, 2012

Guest books are not for everyone, and sometimes a lot of the ideas we see can take up time that your guests should be spending with you at your cocktail hour or reception. Here are four ideas that are time sensitive, and quite fun!

1. Mad Libs ~ 

Quick and easy for the guests to fill out, but each one will have it’s own unique touch to it!

2. Photo Booth Pics ~ 

Have your photo booth company can print two copies of each photo booth session, have your guests put them into a photo album and sign their names.

3. Sign a Balloon (“Up!” inspired guest book) ~

You’ve seen the idea of having your guest sign leaves on your marriage tree, but this idea is so cute, especially if you loved the movie, “Up!”.

4. Inspiration from Love Poems ~ 

This idea is for a couple who loves poems, or phrases from a certain novel. I love this concept. It allows the guest to share words of wisdom without having to think of something unique and witty (not all of us are quick thinkers on this type of thing).

Unique Save the Date Video Idea!

Posted by Jeffra on Dec 06, 2011

One of our WeddingWire team members, Persephone, just received the final version of her save-the-date video. It’s incredibly unique and so we had to share it with you. Make sure to read the write-up from Persephone before watching!

“As a bride working in the wedding industry wedding planning can make you slightly jaded, because it’s hard to find truly unique ideas that have never been seen before. Our goal with the save-the-date was to “set the stage” for what our guests could expect, get them excited and also have it be representative of myself and my fiancé Eddie. I never thought having a videographer was something of importance to me, but when we came across Fandango Studios and the talent of Ram Hernandez it changed my outlook completely. On his blog he had showcased his latest work, a ‘Save-the-Date’ video that was shot more like a music video that you would see on MTV and we immediately knew that was what we wanted to do. We worked extensively with Ram to create the concept so that the video would be a direct reflection of who we were as a couple. We flew to our wedding destination location – Miami – to film all day and devised the concept around a romanticized version of how Eddie and I met, our love for salsa and all things Miami. It didn’t take long for us to realize that what we were doing here was special. Who gets to spontaneously dance in the middle of the street while a videographer is on the ground filming your feet or drive with a camera strapped to the roof of your car? Filming was one of the most memorable experiences we have had together on this engagement journey and the outcome – the save-the-date video – is more than what we could’ve dreamt was possible.”

Style Shoot {Part V}: Fall Dessert Stand

Posted by Jeffra on Sep 02, 2011

Fall Dessert Stand

Another adoral, and delicious dessert table idea. This one was an impromptu idea thrown together at the last minute – and we LOVE. The pies and peaches came fresh from a market down the street (and we had one of the pies later – it was delicious!).
