Picture this… Your wedding day has finally arrived – the most romantic day of your life. Your bridal party is having a blast getting ready for the big day.
Then there is a knock on the door… A large, lush floral arrangement is presented to you with a letter. It’s from your husband to be! He tells you how happy his is that this day has finally arrived, how much you mean to him, and his excitement for the future together with you. You smell the flowers and tears of joy fall from your eyes! You have written him a letter as well, telling him how you have waited for this day to come, how much you love him, and how you cannot wait to see what the future brings with him by your side.
Writing love letters on your wedding day is a very romantic way to start your day! It’s a perfect reminder of why this day means so much to the both of you. You don’t have to be the next American poet. Just be yourself! Share your feelings with the one who matters the most to you. Just make sure you have the Kleenex handy!
Wedding couples are becoming more imaginative with the ways their guests can give advice and wish them well on their wedding day. Here are a few alternative options to a traditional guest book setup.
If you have a photobooth, guests can take a picture and write a message for you to place in your wedding scrapbook. They can also sign a photo of the bride and groom which can be framed to preserve the wedding memories for years to come.
Having your guests sign wood slices for the new Mr. & Mrs. is a pretty decoration they can display in their home for years to come – perfect for a rustic or garden style wedding!
A fun twist on a guest book is a portrait of a tree with branches – the guests place their thumbprint on the branches as “leaves” and write their names on the thumbprint. The completed tree symbolizes the unity of your friends and family through your marriage.
Advice to the Bride and groom
Messages in a bottle are a cute way for the bride and groom to gather advice from their wedding guests. The messages typically feature words of encouragement and best wishes.
Having your guests sign the first letter of your married last name makes a wonderful accent for your home, reminding you of your big day and all who were in attendance!
