Marriage Advice Guest Book

Have something out of the ordinary at your reception and display a decorative board saying “Share Your Key To Success.” This is a fun activity for guest to give their marriage advice to the newlyweds. Have  a jar on the table with antique keys with tags attached, and then have guests write down their words of wisdom on the blank tags. The guests can then place their filled-out keys onto the board. The board would be ideal to have near the guest book.

Using Pinterest To Plan Your Wedding

The internet is full of wedding ideas – it can be overwhelming! How do you keep track of everything you like – endless bookmarks, stacks of printed pages, a super-long string of emails between you and  your Maid of Honor?  Enter: Pinterest.

Pinterest is an online pinboard that lets you organize and share things you find on the web. You can create multiple boards – one for dresses, one for hairstyles, one for flowers, the list goes on and on – so that everything stays neatly organized. And even better, you can share your boards with anyone, and they can comment on your pins. What a great way to collaborate!

Just remember, anyone can see your board – so if you want to keep your wedding details a secret, you might want to look at other options.

Right now, Pinterest is by invitation only – but if you need an invite, feel free to leave a comment below and I’ll send you one.
