Unique guest books

Guest books are a great way to look back and remember all the people that attended your wedding. Signatures don't say much about the person signing, so brides and grooms are finding unique ways to remember their guests.

One of my favorites was an early November wedding for Rachel and Adam - They chose a beautiful coffee table book about Kansas City and had their guests write notes in the book.

Nicki & Zac had their guests sign on their birthday. They printed sheets that had the month and then listed the dates and you signed next to your birthday. Over the years they now can wish all of their wedding guests a happy birthday.

Family trees are fun to look at and so are these thumbprint guest book. Nicole & Jeff had a thumbprint guest book.

Social media can also be used as a guest book of sorts. Here is a unique idea for the you and your guests-a twitter guest book. This link will give you ideas on how to have everyone involved in your wedding use social media to help you create a twitter guest book.

Themed Wedding - Steampunk

Steampunk - I had to look this up on the internet... Wikipedia says "Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction, fantasy, alternate history, and speculative fiction that came into prominence during the 1980s and early 1990s.[1] Steampunk involves a setting where steam power is still widely used—usually Victorian era Britain or "Wild West"-era United States—that incorporates elements of either science fiction or fantasy."

When I saw the cake, it made me think of the movie Wild Wild West.

Some other items that went along with the steampunk wedding theme.

Themed wedding

These past 2 wedding seasons we have hosted over 50 weddings receptions. Most of them have been typical...table decorations based on a color selection - a flower, a season or to match the Vox - all because the couple (mainly the bride) have a strong feeling about it. A few time we have seen elaborate decorations that still fit that same formula. Then there are the theme weddings. I love all weddings , but I so enjoy the theme weddings and the creativity that is displayed with the detail and the interpretation of a given theme. The themes we have seen:

Movies (of course)
Steam Punk

Over the next few weeks, I will share the details of these themed wedding, starting with movies. We have had a few of these.
