But, Blake and I decided not to get engagement photos, so with the brainstorming help from my friend Melissa, we came up with "Words for the Couple" cards. We placed them at each seat at the reception along with some really cheap pens and had a bucket people could return them in near the exit.
If you plan to do this I would offer one suggestion: Make sure to use matte paper! We used glossy and it made it difficult for people to write on them. Even with the hiccup, we got most of the cards back and they had some great stuff on them.
Questions on the cards included:
- What's your favorite memory of us?
- What were you really thinking when we were exchanging our vows?
- What should we do during our first year of marriage?
- Where do you see us in 25 years?
