i loved this post. as we are getting married on the same day you are it is so helpful to be able to "track" our progress with yours. i have lots of friends who are recently married or getting married, but it's not the same as being able to "compare" (in a completely non-competetive way) our progress. thanks for the random thoughts.
Friend came up with the greatest idea for our place cards: Hershey bars with our own wrapper. I measured the dimensions of the hershey bar wrapper and cut paper to that size then i created a word document with the names of the guests and their table assignments. where the nutritional information goes i put a thank you note to guest!!! a few glue stick later i was all set. it was easy and not too expensive AT ALL. and since we decided not to do favors, the candy bar acts as a little favor!
