After all of your hard work to make your wedding day perfect, surely you want to do all that you can to keep those wedding day memories alive. Whether it’s tips from your guests on how to have a happy marriage, or customized photo projects, here are some really adorable wedding ideas to celebrate the day you said “I do”. 


1. Advice Notebook

Use this wedding idea to spruce up your table decorations. It’s a fun and budget friendly way to engage and encourage guests to be wedding participants. Have notebooks at each table to have guests record advice and notes for the bride and groom. To mix it up, you can have different questions written in each notebook to get a variety of responses, or have each notebook dedicated to a single question.

2. Guest libs

Keep your guests occupied and laughing with this twist on a timeless game. Some weddings leave their guests without anything to do, but this is one sure way to entertain them as you and your loved one slip away for photographs. Plus, it’s a great alternative to a guest book, and is highly entertaining to read later on.

This unique wedding idea is a modern version of a guest book and allows friends and family to write advice on how to have a happy marriage. It’s interactive, engaging, entertaining, and symbolic of what the ceremony represents.
