For my two-year anniversary (today!) I’d love to give y’all a little tip.
I know on occasion I tell the tall-tales of how my wedding flopped but, I swear, there was lots of good too (just not as fun to post about).
Something I decided kinda last minute was a Pinterest thing I saw to help save on table numbers. I couldn’t wrap my head around paying $5-10 per table just to have a silly number poking up. I saw some DIY and dollar store stuff but I was up to my eye-balls in half-finished DIY stuff and the dollar store stuff just wasn’t our vibe.
Vistaprint happened to be having a sale around my birthday and their custom small notebooks were on sale for $3-$5 (it was two years ago, I’ve been drinking, and numbers are hard). I made these notebooks and they were part guest-interaction, part functional table number! Perfect!
Back then I didn’t know how serious our guests took it. Tonight over coffee cake and champers we poured over the most heartfelt, kind, sweet, loving notes (yes there was dirty stuff, explicit drawings, butttttt not important) written by our friends and family. Apparently, after dinner everyone went around to the tables and everyone wrote in all the books!
A bit short-sightedly we only have notebooks for the first ten years of marriage but these first two, at least, are absolute treasures. Notebook tables numbers may not be your style. Maybe consider spacing the years out a bit more. It would be great, though, to consider incorporating something that lets you reminisce on your wedding day at your anniversaries!
