Include a method for guests to pass along their marriage advice or well wishes for you and your spouse at your wedding. Plan something different if you aren't the typical couple who likes to follow in the footsteps before you. The best way to capture your wedding guests' well wishes will depend on the theme of your wedding, your wedding style and your personalities. The end result should be a unique tribute to your marriage by those who love you both.

    Wishing Tree

  1. 1

    Cut out little stationery cards with craft scissors and punch a hole on the top. Make at least one card for each guest.

  2. 2

    Tie a colourful ribbon to the hole on the card. Guests can then tie the card to the wishing tree after they've written their message.

  3. 3

    Place the cards and pens in a basket on a table near the entrance of the reception or leave one at each place setting. Include a card with instructions, such as, "Please leave us your well wishes or share any marital advice you may have. Thank you for sharing our special day."

  4. 4

    Fill a large, decorative vase or jar with sand, pebbles or other objects to hold the branches in place.

  5. 5

    Arrange the branches in the container. You can glue silk flowers, hang colourful crystals or spray paint the branches to match your wedding colours if you want something more specific to your wedding.

  6. 6

    Place the wishing tree on a table near the entrance to the reception. Assign a friend or relative to make sure all your guests place a wish on the tree.

    Photo Book

  1. 1

    Ask a friend or relative to go around the reception and take pictures of everyone there.

  2. 2

    Print out the pictures in a corner of the reception room using a small photo printer. Print two copies of each image if you'd like guests to have a picture to take home.

  3. 3

    Secure the pictures in a book and ask guests to write their well wishes for the couple next to their pictures.
