Lauren in Wedding Reception, on July 20, 2019 at 9:39 AM

Bar Menu or no?
Lauren in Wedding Reception, on June 4, 2019 at 6:53 PM

Unique Guest Book?
Lauren in Style and Décor, on May 15, 2019 at 9:54 PM

We were thinking about having 3 or 4 sets of playing cards and each person signs the front of one. But still very open to ideas. So tell me, what are you doing that isn't just a book?
